Sonic 3 is my favourite Sonic The Hedgehog game - perhaps even my favourite 2D Platformer. I preferred the updated, considerate appraoch to the series, and accordingly, prefer Sonic 3 to either of it's Mega Drive predessors. They're all classics, of course.

I've only ever played the first 2. Never been that much of a sonic fan ya'see. I'll vote 1 becuase it is the only one I even vaguely remember anything about.

I voted 1, no major reason, I just prefer it.

Never really understood why Sonic 2 gets so much love. For me the first and original is still the best.

Sonic 1 for me, mainly because it felt like such a "landmark" release & offered something totally different to Mario - at the time, the speed was breathtaking.

Sonic 1 - all night long. Can still remember playing it on release at my uncle's house. Happy days

Not even an option for 'Sonic Unleashed'? Ooh, that's harsh. :lol:

Sonic 2, just for the Master System version, which brought the gameplay and level design up to what we'd seen in Sonic 1 on the Megadrive.

Sonic and Knuckles, not so much for the game itself which was still okay but the way it revitalised the earlier games when it linked up bought a love back to the games I'd eventually tired of.

Sonic 2 for me. Even though I put more hours into the first one, I enjoyed the whole 'Sonic 2'sday' hype thing immensely. I got it mail order on its release day and couldn't wait to go home from work at lunch time to play it.

Sonic 2 just edged the original . After that it was miles too messy.

Sonic 2. Expanded on the original with 2player stages, better level design & if I remember no annoying "SEGA" chant at the start of the game when it boots up!
