View Full Version : Favourite Sonic Game?
March 11th, 2013, 6:23 AM
I've been wondering what the most popular Sonic game is.
Mine is personally SA2 Because of Shadow's storyline, and the gameplay is great.
I just really want to know what games rank highly across PC

My favorite is Sonic Adventure 2, which I have on my PS3 with the battle dlc.
I also like Sonic Heroes, although it's not nearly as fun SA2.
I love the searching levels with Rogue and Knuckles. :D

The first Sonic game I ever truly played in full (despite having some part-time exposure to Sonic on the Genesis) was Sonic Adventure 2 Battle on the GCN. So, there's some fondness for it even if I know there are some major flaws with it.
But, recently, I went on a quest to really understand Sonic. I went and played Sonic 1-3, CD, and Advance 1-3. As well as Generations.
I like 2 the best of the original trilogy, followed by 3 (which mostly I dislike for the graphics and music being too different from the first two games). From the Advance trilogy I like the first game. The two followups had too much of a reliance on speed boosters and springs. I was really really impressed with Generations though. That was a great game.

I've only played Colors, Heroes and all the GBA/DS ones, so I'm not some kind of authority on the series, but I would have to say Colors was my favorite. I loved what it did, and thankfully we at least got one excellent 3D sonic outta Sega.

I've played all the main ones (and some spin offs) except Color and CD, but haven't finished all of them. However for the topic I will say this:
Sonic 2 is my favorite. No, this isn't nostalgia speaking, since I first played it on the DS. I played Sonic 1 and 3 as well, but they just never captured me like 2 did. Whenever I play them, I just keep coming back to 2. I don't know, always preferred the music and level design of 2.
Sonic Generations is close to it though, because both 2D Sonic and 3D Sonic (holy ****!) were great and fun to use, with some excellent level design and no annoying friends to play as. The game was just full on fanservice, and not the ****** kind we've been seeing for the past either. Loved this game, only bad part was the final boss and the short length. (And 2D planet wisp! ugh)
Everything else I hated though. Adventure, Adventure 2, Unleashed, Heroes, Shadow and especially 2006 just made me pull my hair off. Awful controls, awful level design (Adventure 2 actually nailed this though, if memory serves right. everything else no, aside from having Eggman as playable) and they all lack polish. 2006 is easily the worst game I have ever played, bar none.
I also liked Rush and Rush Adventure a lot, but can't say the same for Sonic Generations 3DS. I gotta give both Sonic Colors games a try some day.

EDIT: I also feel the need to say that Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is really REALLY good. Though more of a SEGA game generally than an actual Sonic one, it deserves a mention. Up there with Mario Kart DS/7 and Crash Team Racing as my favorite kart racer of all time.

Ummm. Its been awhile since I played sonic... I think Adventure was the one I played the most... So Im saying Sonic Adventure. Also I liked heroes...when I was a kid. Now I realise its huge faults.xD

Mine is Sonic 3 & Knuckles. You know, the game you get when you plug the Sonic 3 cart in the Sonic & Knuckles cart (for those who don't know about the development history of Sonic 3, they were originally supposed to be the same huge game, but because of time and budget constraints, that game was split in two halves) .
Not only this game has a lot of zones, but the zones themselves are huge, the difficulty is just right, the physics are really good (*cough* Sonic 4 Episode 1*cough*) , and most of the music is awesome as well (I never liked Carnival Night Zone and Launch Base Zone music, to be honest) , and I love the idea of playing through a different story and altered (harder) levels with Knuckles. I honestly can tell that by now I know this game like the back of my hand.

Mine would have to be Sonic Adventures on the Sega Dreamcast. It had great graphics for its time, some great music, and Sonic and that robot guy had some really fun levels. The bosses were fun, and Big the Cat's levels were probably the only ones that weren't that great.
I also enjoyed Sonic 3 & Knuckles just because it combined Sonic 3 with Sonic & Knuckles to combine into one great game.

I've only played Sonic 1-3 on the Genesis and 360 ports, and Sonic Adventure for PC. Not really sure what's my favorite as I hated the first three Sonic games, and Adventure is something I loved playing as a kid, but probably won't like that much now.

Sonic CD. The 2011 remake just made it all the better. I used to like Sonic 3 and Knuckles, but I feel like I played that game to death, and even then, I feel like the game doesn't really feel like Sonic's world these days.
I haven't played Sonic the Hedgehog (1) in a long, long time, but I feel like I'm starting to appreciate it more. I really want to go back and play it again.
The only Sonic game I like beyond the Sega Saturn is Sonic Colors. I couldn't even get behind Generations, and I was super hyped about that game.

Generations, Adventure 2 only for nostalgia. I try not to play Adventure 2 because each time I do I realise it's not that good a game. I haven't really played the original 2D games but I did enjoy the Classic levels on Generations.

I haven't played many of the new Sonic games but was very fond of playing them on the Genesis back in the day. I have also purchased DL versions of some of the games on PS3 and the 360 (most recently playing Adventure 2, which I really love, actually). I do own the Sega collection which has a nice collection of the older Sonic games and some of the spin off like games (Spinball, for example) and I have enjoyed every moment I've spent playing them! I also really liked Sonic Heroes when I had it on my PS2. But, if I had to choose my ultimate favorite Sonic game, I would pick Sonic 3. It has been my favorite Sonic game since I was a kid. I don't think any other Sonic game could top it, but I would like to play Generations. :)
I do have to say that I always enjoyed the story behind Shadow, so I have tried to play games that have included him in them. Never got a chance to play his spinoff game though.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Generations comes comes close though.
March 15th, 2013, 8:38 PM
Sonic Adventure 2, since I was just a child I loved that game for the Ost, storyline and characters

Pretty much Sonic Adventure 2 for Gamecube. Well, part of the reason is because I pretty much grew up with that game, playing those racing mini-games with some friends as well as trying to beat their fastest time upon completing a course. Of course, it wasn't the most perfect game, because sometimes did had some minor glitches with it, and well, at first, everything was pretty confusing to get through, but, I did warm up to it a lot more than the other Sonic Games.
Later on with the Sonic Games for Game Cube... I dunno, they just didn't feel the same, imo. Take Sonic for 2006. It had very good potential, but, honestly, I felt that it was pretty repetitive, and, of course the camera and controls were just very, very, awkward. If they had more time to fix that, then it could of been way up there in my favourite Sonic video games, but... yeah.

Hands down, it's Sonic Adventure 2, no contest! Especially with the Chao Garden!
March 16th, 2013, 3:31 PM
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is easily my favorite Sonic game (and probably in my top 3 games of all time). It was one of, if not, the first video game I can ever remember playing, and I can't even begin to count how many hours I spent playing it. To this day, I still play through the whole thing about once a month, either on my DS or an emulator.
I also enjoyed S3&K and Generations (even if I haven't beaten it yet), but I don't think anything will surpass Sonic 2 in my eyes.
March 16th, 2013, 4:47 PM
Even though it was a spin-off really, I enjoyed Shadow the Hedgehog. There was a lot of variety in the way you could play, the branching paths of "Good, Neutral, and Evil". Most people didn't like Guns and Vehicles, but I enjoyed it, in a very niche way.

I'd like to say Sonic Jam since it had 1-3 and S&K
but I feel I should choose one of them, so S&K was my favourite.
Likely due to Knuckles being by favourite character.

My 1st sonic game I could actually remember playing (I used to have Sonic 2 on the original Genesis, but I was really young back then). I just liked the team thing, and the controls (while they were slippy, they were fun to use). Sonic 3 (and Knuckles) comes 2nd for me, as it just improved the Sonic we all know. Faster, stronger and..yeah.
April 8th, 2013, 7:10 AM
my favorite sonic game is Sonic the Hedgehog 2 because it induced my favorite character Tails Miles Prower and had the greatest levels Oil Ocean and Casino Night Zone.

I'm stuck between Sonic Riders (The first one) and Sonic Unleashed for the PS3/360 (considering they were made better than the Wii version In my opinion.)
April 30th, 2013, 3:18 PM
it's a tie between Sonic 06 and Sonic and the Secret Rings ;p
but in all seriousness It's probally an at least 6 way tie between Unleashed, Colors, Generations, Adventure 2, Sonic 2, and Sonic Spinball (Even if I can barely manage to get into the second level!) Each for their own reasons, I guess if I had to pick ONE I had the most enjoyment in it would be Unleashed, but, I never beat the game so I'll never truly be sure....

My favourite Sonic game?
hint: My current theme.
But in all seriousness, I really like almost all Sonic games (bar those which are obviously bad, but even they have good points e.g. Sonic 06 was basically a Sonic Adventure 3 prototype, or the real thing, who knows), and some of my favs are Generations, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Heroes.

Sonic Adventure 2. It was my first Sonic game, and one of my first games in general. I was 8 years old when I first played it. Ohhh the memories. <3
When I played the SA2 level in Generations, with Modern Sonic, I was like "OHHHHH MY GOOOOD HERE COMES THE NOSTALGIA!" XD
May 27th, 2013, 10:42 AM
Sonic & Knuckles, maybe :P One of the old 16bit games for sure ;)
Even though Sonic was build in on some of the Sega Master Systems, I was glad that mine had Alex Kidd in Miracle World build in :D
