20. Big the Cat

GAME: Sonic Adventure (Dreamcast, 1999)
Minigames can either make or break a game. Thankfully, Sonic Adventure had enough going for it that you could forgive a few bad minigames here or there—but, ye gods, Big the Cat almost sunk the whole project entirely. Why were we forced to fish? Isn't a Sonic game supposed to be all about speed? Well, not for Big the Cat, the fattest, laziest cat this side of Garfield after an Olive Garden lasagna bender. Forcing us to fish? Sega, what were you thinking?
