First Person Green Hill Zone Animation Shows Sonic The Hedgehog's Perspective On The 16-Bit Classic

Sonic-3D-Green-Hill-ZoneIn 1991 nobody really questioned the perspective in which Sonic The Hedgehog was played out, or any platforming game for that matter. Today, however, with expansive 3D animation software at our fingertips, it was only a matter of time before somebody took a closer look at Green Hill Zone from the blue hedgehog's perspective.

This alternative take on Sonic's world isn't the first time a classic video game has been morphed into 3D. Super Mario Bros was given this modern treatment several years ago using the Half Life 2 engine. This effort to add another dimension to the mushroom kingdom, however, didn't really expand upon what the 2D environment's surrounding foreground and background could represent in the 3D world - something this Green Hill Zone tribute happens to do.

So without further ado, take a few minutes away from your retro games today to take a closer looker at what our speeding hedgehog happens to see every time you power up your Sega Mega Drive.

It was pretty cool, but obviously they couldn't show the view of Sonic 100% unless there would be motion sickness. :lol:

The sad thing is that this is basically how they make platformers nowadays. What, did they all get brain cancer after the 90s? Bring back 2D, you paramecia!
