It’s fun to engage in video game fandom where we pound our chests over what’s awesome and what sucks. Don’t forget that the video game industry is just that, an industry. Major game companies aren’t fueled by our goodwill or rage, as much as we like to think otherwise. One man is seeking out why companies are what they are.

There’s a lot of interest in Sonic 3 when it was revealed that Michael Jackson was once involved in the game’s soundtrack. For whatever reason, he dropped out. The original video on YouTube has been gobbled by the copyright monster, but some imaginative musicians still managed to fuse Sonic soundtracks with popular songs of the late-80s/early 90s.
