Do You Remember the First Time Sonic Ran into Your Life? Get it? Because he doesn't walk... nevermind, anyway...

I thought that Sonic was cocky (appropriately), so much so that I was kind of turned off from him. I actually kept playing the game for Shadow, just because of how mysterious and dark him and his past were. My brother and I actually grew really attached to him, so much so that he was, very temporarily, one of our top 5 video game characters ever. You should've seen the shock and despair on our faces when we finished the game. "Shadow...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
Oh, the days before I played the classic games.

One Sonic game I do remember getting though is Sonic advance, I got it for my birthday and played it while we was driving to Legoland. I reached Angel Island I think, good times.

Well the kids must have noticed, as they handed me the controller. "This is how to run, and this is jump." That was all my younger self needed to know, and I remember running straight into the first Motobug the very first try. I didn't care. THAT WAS FUN.
It wouldn't be until a few years later when I would get a Genesis of my own from one of my cousins. It came with Sonic 1 and 2, and I played those in the dark in absolute glee. One of my favorite moments in my life.

On this day it happened to be my birthday and we did have a Sega Genesis.
After he beat the Spring Yard Zone boss he asked me if I wanted it for my birthday and I said yeah.
So he gave it to me.
Since then some of the others like the second game and eventually Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles came around in my possession.
When Knuckles Chaotix was released for the first time I knew immediately I was hooked into the series.

Haha did they intentionality avoid including the in-game music?
Sercive Merchandise. Miami, FL. I was 5. I would play it everytime I went and they had a setup in BJs Wholesale too.
I didn't own it until I was 6 when I was at my grandmas house. My parents had set the system up and the volume was too loud. I remember my brother and I in a room just waking up and I hear "SEGA!!!!!!!!!!!" I run to the living room and I was hooke 4 life. I got Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and John Madden Football '93 (and my brother STILL kicks my ass at this!) XMAS of 1992 was ingrained into my life forever. I also remember getting this metal balancing trinket thing I had on my dresser for years. My dad and brother got one, too, but mine stood the test of time.
Later on I got Sonic Spinball (completely unaware of Sonic CD until like 1996 and saw it as something that was too expensive and unobtainable....my first legit copy is in the GEMS collection) and Sonic 3. But nothing beats the years of replayability like Sonic 2.

My first video game was Sonic 2. I remember playing the new Sega Genesis at the dining room tv with my mother. I loved to play Mario at my cousins house so I guess my parents thought it would be a good idea to buy me a Genesis and Sonic.

Heh. About the same time you were first playing Sonic CD, I was first getting my ass kicked by Chemical Plant Zone 2, on my brand new Mega Drive. =P

Nowadays I own the game myself and every time I start up the game I stare the same way. I think its a bad habit now.
