I'm new here, I realized I never even introduced myself- I'm Michelle, I hail from Canada and I've been a Sonic fan basically since he stepped onto the NA scene. Seeing this was the first post I came up with, I figured I might as well find out a few things that I think are important as a fan.
Everyone has their ups and downs with Sonic, we all don't see eye to on on it, but we all individually go back for our own reasons & memories.
What are Sonic's best moments through your eyes? I have plenty of my own in my humble opinion, but I'd like to know yours as well.
This may or may not have been asked before, no matter!
Seeing A) There are now more games/comics to talk about, and B) I wasn't here, & don't know these things! :P
But what are your absolute favorite Sonic moments? From the games, from the cartoons, from the comics, BOOKS- what have you. I always wonder what fans take to the most- btw, this isn't a favorite and LEAST favorites thread- if you'd like to start your own thread about what you didn't like, you know you're quite free to- but please don't spam my own.
I'm rather warbly and I'm not a fan of hating.
For me, there's tons! I'll start with a few:
-Starting up SA2B for the first time, hearing City Escape. It got me really excited about the game, big time. Jun really knows how to match the music with the mood! ^_^
-Big the cat socking Eggman in the Sonic X comic. :lol: That was a lark!
-Sonic's homecoming in the Sonic X cartoon- you know the one! Returning to Mobius. It's pretty famous, but it was a very touching episode all around. Thought it was really well done. I'll admit, I needed a couple tissues. Good times!
-Learning to draw Sonic & Tails as a kid! (Back when it was JUST Sonic and Tails... I remember when Knuckles came in & I thought he was a challenge to draw :lol: ) As even a little artist, I was thrilled when one day I drew them, and lo and behold- they looked like the actual characters! Was quite proud of myself. Believe it or not, I first did it in chalk on my friends driveway. But I got better at it on pencil & paper.
-ANY Rouge and Knux. The two of them interacting is just too funny, they're both so proud and gutsy.
-Remember that ending video in Sonic CD? (You might remember it better in Sonic Mega Collection now as well, on Gamecube as a little bonus ) Sonic saving Amy, and how he backs off and she peeks up. Cute moment, I remember thinking she was the cutest thing in her tutu & chucks as a kid. ^_^ Man, I remember thinking that game was SOOOO hard to beat at the time, metal sonic!
-Silver, and how he wouldn't beat up Amy to get at Sonic. What a GENT! Wouldn't be Shadow, I'm tellin' ya. :lol:
-EVERY time Sonic has to fight Knuckles to get something out of him. :lol: Knuckles is so awesomely stubborn, Sonic is so snappy. They crack me up.
-Sonic telling Shadow he should get a girlfriend in the STH comic!
-Sonic Underground. I LIVED for that cartoon! I thought Manik was so boss.
-Who could forget the original cartoon? Of all the characters, I really took to Bunnie, and I still love that gal. And... Ixy was pretty freakin' hilarious looking in that show. :lol: I always thought he was funny. But Robotnik...he scared the hell outta me!
-When I discovered Amy as a lead of a team in Sonic Heroes. I was SOO happy! One of the best. That's one of the many reasons why Sonic Heroes is (one of) my favorite Sonic games- along with CHAOTIX comeback! Double zinger.
-Cream getting rid of Emerl in SonicX. WOW, Cream. She really kicked hard tail! I think that girl is heading somewhere big, but that was a defining moment for her character.
-Amy & Sonic in the Valentines Day date comic. :lol: Good God, I've not laughed that hard at a comic for ages!
-Rouge the Bat getting included in games. I have mad love for Rouge, I think she's a little something that was needed. Knuckles needed SOMEone to dent that hard-up 'tude every now and again.
-Cute couples get in free. :lol: Poor Sonic!
-GETTING SUPER SONIC in the old games. Ace, man! YOU KNOW what I'm talking about!
-Sonic, Shads and Silv charging up into super form in SNG. Hands down, that was SUPREMELY COOL.
-Shadow 'cleaning Sonic's yard' for him on his birthday in the STH comic. :P
-Me and some buds were playing SA2B, and my friend Steve got to the Biolizard attached to Ark (which was promptly met with echoes of "is Ark up it's butt?" :lol: ) we were all freaking our beaks! We hadn't gotten that far as of the time.
So... there was him being drunk trying to beat it, and we're all rocking out to Live and Learn blasting- I was barking "You better not kill Sonic!!!"
He had ONE more hit and he was done for, seconds left, but he pulled through. I'll never forget how intense that was! :lol: The first time I saw the 'end' of that game! I was sad I didn't do it myself, but I probably would have had a stroke doing it myself for the first time. :lol: I'm such a tense gamer!
-Silv's ending. ^_^ It was truthfully my favorite, and although it was like a punch in the gut because it made me sad- that's why I liked it the most. It had quite the effect! Go Silv
-Anyone read the new STH comic? (I'd be safe to assume!) in case they haven't, Sonic's witticisms in that one had me laughing out loud big time.
I like the way they write him.
-SONIC AND MARIO. Teaming up in a game. I just about learned gymnastics over that. :lol: I've wanted that for so long, and I grew up thinking that was crazier than McD's & Burger King dating. :P
-Silv getting included in Battle and in Rivals, and other games from there on in! I was SO scared they were gonna nix him after SNG! Thanks heaps for that one, Sonic Team. :lol: I'd be lost without Silv!
-Finally, playing Sonic for the first time. WHOA! I thought the Sega system was SO cool, all sleek and black- we used to feel so fancy playing it as kids. :lol: I still like the feel of those controllers, perhaps the best!
They were a bit more welcoming than intimidating- I admit, I was a teensy bit scared of brand new 3D gaming for a while, and had to get used to those tiny, strange joysticks! But revving Sonic up for a spindash for the first time? Come on, who forgets that?
OK, ENOUGH for now!!
Maybe I should've named this post 'longest in history'.
There's just so much to talk about!
I'll save space in this for somebody else. :lol: [/i]
