John Carpenter is a huge Sonic fan, hopes SEGA keeps making Sonic games

John Carpenter, the man behind Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and many others, is apparently a huge Sonic fan. No, this is not a joke. You can see Carpenter's passion for Sonic in Factmag snippet below.

“Back in the early ‘90s, I got hooked on Sonic The Hedgehog for Sega Genesis and I just couldn’t stop playing it. I loved the game. I loved everything about it. I especially loved the music. There was something about the whole sound and feel of the Sonic games and suddenly I’m so much younger and it’s the ‘90s.

It didn’t have a memory card so I’d have to start over every time. Those games were HARD, man. The underwater level. Oh god. I’d die every time. And then have to start back. It was so frustrating, but there was something so intensely addicting about that. I even like the one where he turns into a werewolf.”

Carpenter's love of Sonic continues to this day. Wondering if he's played Sonic Mania?

“Oh hell yeah. It took a while (to beat it), these things are hard to beat. I just keep wanting to play Sonic games — because they’re fun. I hope they keep making them.”
