Top Ten Video Games That Were Inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog

The Top Ten Video Games That Were Inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog

1 Earthworm Jim

When I first heard about it, I thought it sounded really stupid, but now it’s nice to see how funny he’s looking.

Yes it is true. Earthworm Jim exist because of Sonic the hedgehog. If you love Earthworm Jim, thank sonic. - Chaotixhero

Wow! Really? I did not know this. That's pretty cool!

Earthworm jim is sega, so this dosen't count

2 Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicooties!

I kinda say this game was inspired by Mario because the gameplay very similar and they both have boxes with a? On them

No mario inspired him

You Mario fanboys are so stupid. No god crap Crash was influenced by Sonic not Mario. When you take a quick glance at Crash do you think fa plumber Mario? No its Sonic!

Just because Crash is a cool-looking animal, it doesn't mean that he wasn't inspired by Sonic not Mario. Other than that, Crash's gameplay is more similar to Mario than Sonic, but you COULD say that Crash Bandicoot was inspired by BOTH Mario and Sonic. End of argument.

3 Bubsy

Oh the Bubsy series was a terrible series that had only three or four games. Way terrible. - Chaotixhero

4 Freedom Planet

I played the demo and it's really good.

Yeah, this came from a fan game.

I found out this was originally a sonic fangame

5 Awesome Possum
6 Nights Into Dreams

NiGHTS was created by Yuji Naka, who also created Sonic the Hedgehog.

Just here Sonic Blast's soundtrack and the answer is reviled. - Chaotixhero

Nights is a sega game

It still could have been inspired by Sonic, like a Spiritual successor or something... Right? - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Ristar

Why doesn't he get anymore games? How could SEGA abandon him & only care about the hedgehog? He must return!

There are ton of things that was inspired by sonic in this game but I'm too lazy to name a few. - Chaotixhero

8 Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

I might be going coco when I say Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventure was kinda inspired by Sonic. Just think, he acts and sometimes sounds like sonic. He also rip off his homing attack. - Chaotixhero

I'm pretty sure pacman and the ghostly adventures was not inspired by sonic

9 Dynamite Headdy
10 Pac-Man World 2

Sonic's super peel out and spin dash. Enough said. - Chaotixhero

I say pacman world 2 was inspired by Mario

This has to be one of my favorite games to play on a PS@ - jwaughtal

Well, this worthy video game's PS1 predecessor Pac-Man World is the top 1 best video game ever besides its older cousin figure Super Mario 64. Why? The graphics, music, gameplay, great creativity, story (not Super Mario 64's, I respect that, Chaotixhero, but it got insanely bad at Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World), power-ups, levels, bosses, and everything else as well! So is the main successor of Pac-Man World 2 which is Pac-Man World 3. I sure wish that Namco would make a Pac-Man World 4 and I think Toru Iwatani does actually agree that Pac-Man/Dig Dug/Teeken/Digimon/all other Namco franchises deserve their respective Archie Comics series. Far Out (Pac-Man World) and Erwin's Fortress/Dungen Gunden music is the best gaming music ever! This is an open letter.

Yeah and what you just said has nothing to do with this list so... Yeah! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 Mario Kart

Mario Kart came before Sonic Drift. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario kart was launch in 1992 and sonic drift was launch 2 years later

No joke. The Mario Kart series was inspired by Sonic Drift. - Chaotixhero

12 Super Monkey Ball
13 Pac-Man World
14 Super Mario 64

This is a 3D MARIO game released in 1996 sonic adventure, Sonic's first 3D game released in 1998. So how can this be inspired by sonic?

How was this game inspired by sonic!?

Yea...pretty sure this game wasn't inspired by Sonic. - Garythesnail

This should be top 1 although not inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog. I am not referring to the DS version.

15 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

But sonic the hedgehog 2 is a sonic game

16 Super Monkey Ball Deluxe
17 Pac-Man World (Gba)

Pac-Man World for the PS1 is way better because of how Pac-Man World for the GBA is edited out making this game one of the worst Namco games and actually on par with Sonic Genesis. - The Ultimate Daredevil, a Classic Pac-Man fan who is not a big fan of GBA remakes.

18 Socket

It plays a lot like Sonic The Hedgehog. Just with a robot duck.

19 Gex
20 Pac-Man World 3
21 Super Monkey Ball 2
22 Undertale

How could an amazing game like Sonic inspire a horrible game like Undertale?!

I don't see sonic stuffs

Wait, what?!

23 Luigi's Mansion

It's a rip off of Doritos

24 Zool
25 Super Mario Adventures

Like sonic adventure was made before comics came out and its I fell like it's a game
