Here are the top five games where you get to play as an animal. Check them out!

The Sonic the Hedgehog series

You have most certainly never seen a blue hedgehog in real life, but Sonic is indeed a hedgehog and that’s all that matters to the world. He is also exceptionally fast and does that cute little curling up into a ball and rolling thing that regular hedgehogs do. Real hedgehogs can also swim, though we think Sonic might be unusual for being able to hold his breath for so long. Sonic the Hedgehog is Sega’s flagship franchise and one of the bestselling video game franchises that sold over 140 million copies by 2016 and grossing over USD 6 billion as of 2020.
