A wonderfully crafted Machinima video has been posted showing what Sonic the Hedgehog's first stage "Green Hill Zone" would be like if it were a first person game.

Other than a really faithful and slick presentation from the creators of the video, they have effectively proven a few things here;

1: A Sonic FPS would be borderline unplayable or wouldn't capture much of that 'Sonic, Gotta go fast!' feel

2: It would probably make us all vomit endlessly from motion sickness if played longer than 2 hours - Nevermind the fact the video SAVED us from not including when Sonic curls up into a ball to boost or jump!

Having said that, I would love to see the creators of this video make a FPS version of some other classics such as Contra III: Alien Wars or Cybernator!
