We've seen some pretty excellent fan made games make the rounds recently; and more recently, end up being shut down as result of Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It's a shame too, with games like Pokemon Uranium and the Metroid 2 remake, and No Mario's Sky, Nintendo needs to take a minute.

Well fortunately, Sega's outlook on fan made games couldn't be more different. After seeing Game Grumps played Green Hill Paradise Act 2, Sega took note and sent out their approval on twitter.

Like our last awesome artist parent, David LaFerriere, Brooklyn-based graphic artist Nina Levy has taken it upon herself to make her two sons' lunches a bit more interesting each day. Yeah, you read that right: she's made art of this caliber for two lunches everyday for over half a decade. That's over 2,000 napkins! Check them all out on Levy's blog.

What a time to be alive, riight? In all fairness here, Sonic Adventure 2 did feature one of the greatest, catchiest songs ever in a Sonic game. Someone out there decided to take their appreciation for the iconic song a step further, and started up a petition to change out the U.S. National Anthem for the Sonic Adventure 2 song itself. The Change.org petition reads as follows:

"NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been under fire recently for refusing to stand during the performance of our country's national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner." Because of the injustices occurring in the United States of America, the 49ers player disagrees with the message being conveyed by Francis Scott Key's lyrics. 

"The obvious solution would be to rid our nation of the injustices Kaepernick is protesting. However, that would take a lot of hard work and determination that we've clearly been incapable of to this point. So, instead, I suggest to President Barrack Obama that we change the national anthem to Ted Poley and Tony Harnell's more upbeat and less controversial "Escape from the City" as featured in the smash-hit video game Sonic Adventure 2. 

"Tell us, America, would you rather be reminded of the constant violence and threats faced by the soldiers of 1812 to get to this still-divided point in U.S. history or be set free by the rush of danger lurking around every turn as you follow your rainbow at the speed of sound?"

Clearly a joke, but now we definitely have to listen to the song!
