I figured sonic keeps coming up in all sorts of threads. So let's make a general sonic thread. I love sonic 2 (genesis) with a passion. Sonic adventure looks hot and I wanna try it badly. I also love tails. Shadow looks cool but I havn't played a game with him yet. Also it's segas official mascot. And as far as I know it's their most successfull line of games. Sonic 1, 3, cd, and sonic and knuckles for genesis/sega cd are also pretty cool. But still they're no sonic 2

    Sonic the Hedgehog's my favorite Sonic game. It was before all that sidekick and anime crap. And by that, I mean except for Miles, Knuckles, and Amy (I mean, she WAS in Sonic CD...) Basically, the Genesis Sonic games, along with Sonic the Hedgehog CD, are the best, while Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and over are... hit and miss.

    Shadow has to be the sign of the Sonic franchise going into tubes. Why does SEGA feel the need to create more and more useless characters? Wasn't Fang/Nack the Weasel bad enough?

      I just like tails because he plays identical to sonic and just gives you an excuse to have 2 players. Unlike other sidekicks or different characters he has no strengths or weaknesses compared to sonic

            No, you couldn't. But he could still fly, and that alone makes him different than Sonic.

            Though yes, in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, they pretty much are identical.

              Even though I'm not into the later Sonic games, I still like some of the newer characters (compared to Amy, Tails, and Knuckles), like Rogue and Shadow. I like their background stories.

              I also liked Sonic X, even though, in the beginning, I wasn't a big fan. Still wish I could see the third season since it was Tails-oriented. Something that neither of the other animated series really dealt with. Tails was always my favorite Sonic character, so I was happy when I found out season 3 was supposed to be centered around him.

                Sonic died when Sonic Adventure came out. There hasn't been a decent Sonic game in years. Sonic should've gone the Mega Man route and stayed 2D. Capcom tried a few 3D Mega Man games and decided it wasn't the best idea for the type of game that it was. Then they went back to exclusively 2D Mega Man games except for the RPGs. Sonic could be suffering from the same problem.

                I honestly hadn't played a good and fulfilling Sonic game since Sonic and Knuckles. Then in 2001, Sega started the Sonic Advance series on the GBA which was brilliant and really evoked the style and feeling of the Genesis games. I was proud to be a Sonic fan again when these games came out. I think these games worked so well that Sega should just take a step backwards a couple of generations and just release a few games with high-definition, hand-drawn and animated 2D sprites and backgrounds.

                The problem with all the post-Sonic Adventure games is that the cameras still suck, most people don't like any of the new characters with each game, and the story lines are very weak. I honestly think Sega should still go back and make a SatAM game but it probably won't happen. I'm just a hardcore SatAM fan at heart who would love to see more Sonic, Sally, Tails, Bunnie, Rotor, and Antoine, damn it!!

                  ^ And you're never going to, because the other characters aren't SEGASonic characters.

                      I don't mind. That game was OK, mostly for it's catchy songs.

                      ... I'd totally buy the soundtrack and play it in a car!

                        I like Sonic and Knuckles the best out of all the sonic games.

                          You know, I am really tired of people saying how the Sonic games aren't good just because there are more characters for the franchise. I think the series is still cool for that reason (although, I though Big was a better character than Blaze personally), so there's no freaking way the franchise is going "down the tubes" (If it was, there'd be no more games released in over a year from now, just like what happened to franchises like "Earthworm Jim").

                            I like the classic Sonic. I find the character designs more appealing than the later games.
                            My favorite Sonic game would have to be Sonic & Knuckles.


                            it's....so....friggen hard!!! I picked up a copy just so I could have knuckles in my sonic 2. But everytime I play it on its own I get frustrated because it's so difficult!!!!

                            ...I should bug my roommate to get the soundtrack to sonic r so I can give it a listen. If it's anywhere as good as sonic 2's soundtrack I'll be one happy camper

                              Ok I know I'm the 'Black Sheep' of the Sonic fans here.

                              The Genesis games were ok. I didn't grow up with one (I was in the Nintendo camp with an SNES) so I only got to play them every now and then, but there was some fun in there.

                              Then I got a hold of a Dreamcast and played Sonic Adventure for the first time.

                              And that's why I'm a black sheep. I love the Sonic Adventure games, but only kinda enjoy the older games.

                              You may be pleased to know however, that after Sonic Adventure 2, I played a little of Sonic Heros and grew bored with it after a bit. Never played another 3D Sonic again. So I'm not saying all the 3D Sonic games rule. Just the Sonic Adventure ones.

                              Personally I'd love another Sonic game set up like Sonic Adventure 2. That's got to be my favorite Sonic game of all time.

                                I was in the nintendo camp too. I didn't pick up a genesis until sometime in the late 90's. But guess what...I still love sonic 2 to pieces....darn you I wanna play sonic adventure so badly.

                                      My favorite Sonic game of all time is Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Genesis. My least favorite is the recent "Next Gen" Sonic game on the Xbox 360 and PS3. What a piece of garbage. Horrible loading times, glitchy gameplay, awful camera angles...I could just go on and on.
