[Every Friday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

With yesterday being Sonic the Hedgehog's twentieth anniversary, it's been a bit of a SEGA-themed week for us at Destructoid Towers. With that in mind, only one question is fit to be asked this week -- do you prefer "Classic" Sonic or "Modern" Sonic? 

While you can talk about aesthetics, I almost want the question to involve gameplay. Do you still prefer the old school Genesis platforming, or do you think the 3D "racing" style from Sonic Adventure onwards is the way to go? 

Although Sonic has been in some famously poor games in recent years, the newer Sonic has a very dedicated fanbase that possibly outnumbers those who grew up on the Genesis these days. So let's settle this once and for all -- old or new? 

Anybody who says "Neither" shall be dubbed St. Smarmy of Smarm.

No matter how niche it can get at times, shooters old and new come out of the woodwork in the most unexpected of places, from Steam to legacy consoles. One such release is Neo XYX, a new (yes, in 2014) game for the Sega's last console, making this the second Dreamcast release this year. It's also the best.more

Shenmue: from peach tree prototype to Virtua Fighter RPG to final release

At Yu Suzuki's GDC postmortem of Shenmue, he fully detailed the classic Dreamcast game's development, from an early prototype to a Virtua Fighter RPG to its final beloved form. Many details, images, and concepts were shown for the first time ever, which was a total thrill for me as a huge fan of the game and Suzuki's other works. more
