Why? Because Sonic the Hedgehog was my first video game ever, and the classics are fun to play. Sure there are plenty of new games that bombed, but the classics will always be around. I wish I became part of the Sonic Community earlier though, instead of looking Pokemon stuff up when I was 11.
Anyway, I am still part of the Sonic community mainly because of the hacks and even though most of my hacks aren't amazing or whatever, I still have fun making them. Plus Sonic is addicting.
I honestly don't think I'll ever stop being a fan of the franchise, once I'm hooked to something I usually never lose interest.

I'm still a fan because it was my first and only video game for years and years.. I got so used to playing Sonic 3 & Knuckles that I had it imprinted in my mind as being the epitome of what a video game was supposed to be like. All games I'd ever play would be judged based on the standards it set forth and surprisingly, I never got bored of playing it, no matter how many times I played through it. I've been playing it since first grade and still going strong as a Senior in High School. It's the love of my life
Only Sonic fans know what I'm talking about.

Whatever initial impression I had when I first saw Sonic when I was about 5, it stuck with me. There's really no other reason. He remains such an awesome badass in my eyes & I love the friendship dynamic he has with Tails. While I was less into some releases than others, whenever a Sonic game comes out, the kid in me reawakens with a vengeance. It's always a first day buy and regardless of whatever nonsense the game might receive, I still get excited for it. It wasn't until the 19th birthday extravaganza started that things kicked into high gear and have stayed full speed since.
He's my childhood hero. I grew up with him. And now that I'm starting to get older and experience life and all the changes that come with it, it's nice to have that solid rock that I can continue to revisit and grow with.

Too many friends still in the community, too much knowledge of the franchise to just forget about it, too much habit of being here.
Otherwise I actually think I would've stopped being a Sonic fan around Sonic 2006. Like, for real.

Just because all the new games suck (except Colors and Generations) doesn't retroactively make the old games suck, which is why I'm still a fan, because good Sonic games exist.

My reason: This community.......actually...no I hate all of you
Nah, it's because I still like a good playthrough of an old Genesis title. Heck, I pretty much like everything up through the Dreamcast, but my favorites are Sonic CD and Sonic 3K.

Because Sonic's a pretty rad dude who goes fast and he's a hero, bringing Robotnik down to zero
also his games are pretty sweet

'I recognize a potential within the series, which has not only been shown now, but many times before. The Classics were and always will be the strongest era of Sonic, because of their marketing benefit through the Genesis/Megadrive, but nonetheless I still think Sonic is a good series to this day.
The classics were (and still are) popular because of their definitive style. SEGA's found a new definitive style for "Modern" Sonic. Now I'm just waiting for them to help it grow and nourish it to the point where he can be a big shot again. In the meantime I'll enjoy great games like Generations, Sonic CD (2011) and Sonic 4: Episode 2.

I still like the old games, I guess.
