Sonic The Hedgehog

Just a thread for discussing one of the most recognizable video game characters.

Did/do you like Sonic games? If so, which ones?

I was a pretty big fan when I was younger. Although in my opinion, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle for Gamecube was the last good full-on Sonic game. All the others after that were mediocre to pretty bad. I've heard they've gotten better in the past couple years though (although they got pretty bad for a while). Also, most of the handheld games are pretty good, although they typically get redundant, though. If you play one, you've played them all.

Favorite game would have to be Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles on Sega Genesis. And another which is a spin-off is Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. Easily one of the most underrated games I've ever played.

I was a big fan of the sega genesis ones, but I always ultimately preferred good SNES platforms.

The first four games (Sonic the Hedgehog-Sonic & Knuckles) are really good.

I have Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog, which in my opinion are mediocre. They're not awful like people say but they aren't that great either. I probably only think that because I was young when I played them though.

I never played either of the Adventure games but I've meant to for some time now.

Edit: I only ever played the first two on the Genesis though. The rest I played through the 'mega collection' on the PS2. Mean Bean Machine is not underrated.

Oh for sure. While Adventure 2 had some amazing Sonic and Shadow levels, there wasn't enough and too much Tails, Eggman, Knuckles and Rouge levels.

trufax. SA2 is good, but it's not THAT good. And they went steeply downhill after that. Heroes wasn't awful, but it was a far cry from Adventure. Shadow was pretty bad. And let's not even bring up Sonic 2006.

He's bouncing back though. Generations and Colors were both decent.

Yeah I stopped getting the console games after SA2. The reviews were always shit so I didn't bother.

The GBA games were decent. Sonic Battle was was pretty awesome.

But for awhile Sonic was my idol and all I did was play the genesis games. Sonic 3 and Knuckles was just greatest thing.

Edit:
Forgot about Sonic Heroes. That's he last game I got.

Great gameplay. Shit plot and voice acting.

I forgot about that. Most of that wasn't even a real game, just running around the town. That was the most recent Sonic game I played.

Never been a fan, really. Some of the games had pretty rad soundtracks though.

Sonic Heroes was really meh, Shadow was a decent game but was SUPER hard, Sonic Unleashed wasn't bad but was so disappointing that it ruined it anyway.

But yeah, 1-3, S&K, Adventure 1 and 2, and Spinball are amazing games.

I actually got Colors. To be honest, it was alright, not bad at all, but I couldn't really get into it. I hate how the enemy design is all happy and colorful, as opposed to the realistic looking black and gray machines in SA2.

I've been meaning to get Generations for the 3DS. I'd like to see the 3D graphics, as Sonic tends to have gorgeous graphics no matter how bad the game.

It's a collection of bugs that loosely resembles a game.

Spinball is one of the most ball-crushingly difficult games out there. It will shit inside your soul. And that's why it's awesome.

No, nothing was a bigger let down than this.



I can't believe this game happened.
