The 30 Day Video Game Challenge – #3 – First Game You Finished
If there are one series of video games, or video character which installs more nostalgia in me then anything else. It’s got to be Sonic The Hedgehog. Looking back, I’m sure this was the first game that I ever completed. Over the years following I must of completed this game numerous times, explored every inch of every level, had the soundtrack embedded into my mind, my brain, my subconscious, so much so that I’d say the music of this game (as well as the sequels) are an integral part of the soundtrack to my youth. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that this is my favourite sonic game ever (that title goes to Sonic 2 I think, it’s a tough question to answer) but, as one game that illustrates my youth, and installs happiness and nostalgia a-plenty in me. Then look no further then Sonic The Hedgehog on the Mega-Drive/Genesis.
Each zone is an absolute classic. From Green Hill to Spring Yard via Star Light and Labyrinth. Each one is fun, memorable and has replay value in abundance. I’ve actually ended up owning this game on just about every platform i’ve been able to get it on. That’s how much I love the Sonic games.
