Let’s guess the ages of these SEGA characters!

Microsoft’s How-Old.net , the recently released face detection API has taken the internet by storm: Within a few hours, over 40,000 people had hit the page from all over the world hoping to see how old other people think they look like.

We figured it would be funny to put a bunch of SEGA characters through the system and see what it says, and so we did. Check out the results below!

1. Ryo Hazuki, Shenmue 

MS Age: 19. Actual Age: 18. Given the program's recent launch, that's pretty accurate. Sitting in that cave must add a couple of years to your face.

6. Eggman, Sonic the Hedgehog 

MS Age: 40. Actual Age: Unknown. Since we have no clue what his age is, let's just say 40 is now canon.
