The Sonic Cycle is a concept that's purpose is to explain the sequence of events that occur after the announcement of a new Sonic game. With the release of quality games such as Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations (and to a certain extent of some people Sonic Unleashed), the cycle is often considered to be "broken". However, many people still insist on its validity.Also with the release of two good sonic games sega decided to reconstruct the cycle with Sonic Lost World (but most people thought it stunk from day one), quite possibly the worst example on record, and is spotted with sonic boom. The Sonic Cycle is considered one of the greatest Sonic memes.
