How the video concept came about was gaming session and conversation about how the similarity of their character evolution was. The rivalry between SEGA and Nintendo, one being on top of the world the other the biting competitor. Sonic and Mario being the main guns of the arsenal of the companies.
Pairing up title vs title, side by side. Sonic Transformed up against Mario Kart 8. However how can one not include Sonic R? Was Sonic Drift the mirror of Super Mario Kart. Yet how different the evolution to 3D was for each characters. So the idea came about doing comparison. However the catagories and groupings are wider. than first cast.
