~Gotta Go Fast~

What's your favorite Sonic game? Favorite Zone? Favorite song?

I'm going for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as my favorite and then Chemical Plant Zone as the best zone. Stardust Speedway Bad Future from Sonic CD is the best song.

Also, Sonic After the Sequel (https://sites.google.com/site/sonicbtsbooth/) is a fan-game that ranks up there with the original three so I have to mention it.

DISCUSS GOING FAST.

Seems like Sonic is getting tired in his old age.

That's why we're talking about classic Sonic, silly :colbert:

Sonic 3 & Knuckles was my favourite because of the interaction between the two titles. Sonic 2 comes in a close second - if Sonic 2 had Sonic 3's art style I'd pick it over Sonic 3.

My favourite zone is Death Egg/Doomsday from Sonic 3 & Knucklces as it was so climatic tieing up everything that had happened in Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles - it was hard as nails too.

My favourite song is the Special Stage theme from Sonic 2.

All the classic Sonics really do have their own great things going for them and it's hard to pick which one is the "best" out of all of them. Personally I feel that Sonic 2 had the strongest level design but S3&K was a very strong title in its own right.

I kind of like the Sonic 1&2 art style over S3&K personally! It was cuter xD

Also my proudest achievement was getting all the Chaos Emeralds on Sonic CD on the PC and getting the "you are our greatest player" screen at the end of the credits. I think I was like... 8 or 9 then and was like "ahhhh yeaaah" :smug:

Oh man, Sonic CD is such an underrated little gem. It might not be quite up there with Sonic 2 and 3&K but it's an immensely fun and lovely game.

I've never enjoyed playing a Sonic game. I don't enjoy that you either go relatively slow or really fast. It's just not for me.

I do enjoy going fast IRL though

I've only really played Sonic 2. That being said, everything about Chemical Plant Zone is awesome. I despise Casino Night Zone.

Sonic 2 will probably always be my favorite. I used to play that game with friends and family all the time. I do want to play Sonic 3 and Knuckles more one of these days. I sucked at that game as a kid so I got burnt out pretty quick. I did enjoy sticking Sonic 2 into that cartridge to play Sonic 2 with Knuckles. Really I sucked at all of the games. The only one I've beaten is Sonic CD (and that's not with all the chaos emeralds and such).

I downloaded Before and After the Sequel the other day. They are both pretty fun.

My favorite Sonic games are 2, CD, Adventure, and Rush.

My favorite Sonic soundtrack is actually the one for Sonic 3D Blast on the Saturn (yes, the Saturn version's soundtrack is totally different from the Genesis version) with Sonic 2 being a close second. Sonic R has a great soundtrack too. :jess:

Favorite Sonic games are 2, S3&K, SA2, and Generations.

Favorite soundtrack for a Sonic game would have to be Sonic 3 & Knuckles if only for the Michael Jackson rumor.

Best level music in a Sonic game would be Mystic Cave Zone from Sonic 2.


Then again, my brother has ALWAYS been a bigger Sonic fan than I am. Sonic Adventure 2 is his all-time favorite video game.

Its funny how I grew up with Sonic and had access to all the consoles he's been on, yet I never adopted him after his classic run, even though I remained an avid fan during the Dreamcast era. Kinda glad though. Never had to fully experience the fall of one of my favorite mascots. Still sad though. But Sonic 1 - Knuckles and CD were some spectacularly fond memories. Not sure what my favorite game was. But my favorite experience was definitely Sonic CD. The graphics in the backgrounds, the CD-quality music, the time travel aspect. And above all, for some reason, that VS scene with metal sonic really stuck in my brain as an intense one-on-one against a truly arch rival as a kid. So I've held the game fondly enough to acquire it both on Android, and hacked onto my PSP lol

I think my favorite melody would be the boss fights with Robotnik from Sonic 2

I have vital news.

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is the best kart racing game ever.

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is the best racing game ever.

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed may be the best Sonic game ever. (Obviously it's not really a Sonic game 'cause it's not a platformer but he is the headliner and the game is about Going Smurfing Fast so close enough!)

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is not the best game ever, but it has an understand of what games are supposed to be that is extremely rare; the nostalgia is the icing on the cake.

I cannot stop grinning when I play this game.

I've been wanting the sonic racing game, but it would be more fun to me playing it with friends. I have no friends that would play it with me, unfortunately.

I'll probably get around to it though as I am currently trying to play through every single sonic game (whether bad or good) just for the fun of it. Currently working on Sonic Advance now that I beat Sonic '06.

I love all the zones in Sonic 2. Even Hill Top Zone. Casino Night Zone has my favorite music, followed by a tie between Chemical Plant Zone and Aquatic Ruin Zone. I did a metal cover of Chemical Plant Zone with my old band and made an ambient trance remix of Aquatic Ruin Zone that I really liked, but there's just no improving the Casino Night music. The level I least enjoy playing is Metropolis Zone, but that's only because of how long it is, since it's basically a few other scrapped levels thrown together. It's an interesting design though.

The DYKGaming youtube channel has two videos on Sonic, one of which was actually uploaded just a few hours ago:

Listen to the music from Sonic 3's Carnival Night Zone Act 1, then go back and listen to the music from Mystic Cave Zone.

I've always wondered which songs from Sonic 3 Michael Jackson actually worked on.

I will never be able to forget Sonic 1. I did like Sonic 2, and 3+K was astounding in scope, but Sonic 1 is special to me.

I would put Sonic CD over it, but the level design isn't nearly as tight. The stages are just too spread out and Wacky Workbench in particular irritates me to play for longer than a couple of minutes.

Final Zone Music FTW (http://youtu.be/uFUGJJ5mwcE).

Oh man SONIC CD is a glorious and underrated little gem of a game. Not quite up with the original three but still great.

Sonic 1, 2, and Spinball were all pretty great! Even though I never played 3 (I know, blaspemous, right? :p)

The RPG on the DS was pretty good too!

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is the best kart racing game ever.If you don't count the original Mario Kart.


Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is the best racing game ever.If you don't count the original Mario Kart, Carmageddon 2, the arcade version of Off Road, and probably something else.

(Obviously it's not really a Sonic game 'cause it's not a platformer but he is the headliner and the game is about Going Smurfing Fast so close enough!)It's entirely different, of course, and it's definitely a good game, but it isn't Sonic 2.

okay just so we're all clear, Uniracers is the best racing game ever.

But at least we agree that Sonic 2 is the best Sonic.

Spinball

hnnnng

I love Sonic Spinball. That feel when you beat the final boss and the game lags because of the awesomeness of the machine exploding and then Sonic and Tails let Robotnik fall into the ocean and drown under his collapsed island tower thing
