Sonic 1 for me, so many aspects of the game are memorable and legendary!

A completely nostalgia biased Sonic 1 is my choice, it being the one I played most and the one I always select to revisit.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2! It's the only game in the series to get a perfect balance of platforming & speed. The first sonic feels too slow & later ones rely too heavily on instant kill death traps.

Sonic 1, as with many sequels nothing seems fresh, just expanded!

Sonic CD. As I liked 2, CD had that much more: the time travel element, the animated intro, the rather excellent music and it felt right to play.

Sonic 3 by a country mile

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is an utter supreme POS.

Yeah I know, my username does indeed suck. When I made this profile I never intended it to be my primary username, unfortunately it just ended up that way, and now I'm stuck with it unless I start over

Sonic 2, The hype surrounding it was crazy & it lived up to that hype!

Sonic 2, by a massive distance. Better graphics, better level design, better scenery, better everything. Sonic 1 was eclipsed by it, Sonic 3 and S&K lost the tight level design and fun factor.

Sonic CD is awfully close though...

Sonic 1 for me, it's the only one I really enjoyed, although I love the bonus stages in Sonic 2

Sonic 2. Improved on everythingin the first and didn't start adding un-needed fluff.

I'd like to go for Sonic CD but the loading times let it down - or should I say loading screens. Sonic 2 is fantastic because you can play with a mate! :mrgreen:
