Staff: dunno if you're okay with this. If you aren't, SORRY So I was browsing through really old threads because I was super bored and vame across this thread by Jayextree. I found its premise very interesting and wanted to participate, but when I scrolled down I realized it had been locked WAY back in 2008 (I had forgotten I was browsing through ancient threads out of boredom :P) So what I wanted to do was to replicate the premise of that thread. Basically, one must answer these three questions: 1 - What was the first Sonic game you played? 2 - How did you find out about it? 3 - What was your initial reaction to it? I'm going to start: 1 - What was the first Sonic game you played? Sonic 1. 2 - How did you find out about it? I bought iFone's shitty mobile port when I had a Motorola L6 phone. The game was a faithful port (minus special stages) but had a severe frame drop, but outside that and its lack of blast processing, the game had to be split in two parts: one with Green Hill, Marble and Spring Yard and another with Labyrinth, Star Light and Scrap Brain. Both parts were sold separately and had "lock-on technology" (you had to have both parts in the same device to unlock the good ending). I bought both but my phone only wanted to run the first part. 3 - What was your initial reaction to it? I was absolutely blown away by the ge even though it ran at five frames per second and only could play until Spring Yard act 3. I got obsessed with it, which was rare for a mobile game. Not long after I got the Sonic Mega Collection CD and finally could play Sonic 1 in its pure state, (and getting to Labyrinth Zone was like "holy fucking shit".) I moved on to the rest of the classic Sonic games and became so obsessed with them I tried to look for more. But I only found the 3D games (that I hated). I wondered why there were so few classic 2D games if they were so awesome (WHY?) which motivated me to play fan games instead of the official games and I DO NOT REGRET. --- That's about it :P now I want to learn about your first experiences with Sonic, now that it's been 9 years since that thread got a reply and I'm curious.
