Ooh, this is a fun little thread. There are a few Sonic accomplishments I'm rather proud of, the earliest of which was being able to collect all seven Chaos Emeralds in Sonic 2 before the end of Emerald Hill zone. That was back in my teens though, and I haven't been able to do it again any time more recently. But my proudest feat was probably when I did my big Sonic game marathon back in 2011, when I finished 16 games in three and a half weeks (plus Sonic 1 a week prior). On top of just the sheer number of games I got through, I was also proud for the first time to complete both Sonic 1 with all Chaos Emeralds and Sonic CD with all Time Stones.

I've actually been thinking about doing another marathon, this time with many, MANY more games - over 40, I'd say - and no time limit.

I could still find a few areas I did not know about in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles 15 or greater years after release, despite extensive exploration.

I consider this a great testament to why the games are the greatest level design ever.

It wasn't until last year that I found out about two rather obscure shortcuts in Sonic 1. One is in Labyrinth Zone, where there is a button that makes a platform to appear on the surface. The other is on Scrap Brain Zone, in which a teleporter works differently if you are carrying at least 50 rings.

First time I played Sonic Generations I got an S Rank on all main stages. Not really difficult to get at least an A if you know what you're doing.

I was able to get all the gold soleanna medals in 06 AND I got A-ranks on all the levels in ShtH and made it to the challenge mode.

I wasn't until one or two years ago that I finally played and beaten the two adventure games. It has been a long time since I owned a game console, my last one was the original PlayStation, so it had been quite some time since I played a Sonic game.

there's quite a few games I havent played due to not owning any modern consoles since the Gamecube (and not having interest in Sonic when the Adventure games first came out), but in late 2013 I started playing catch-up. I first played SA2 on a DC emulator and it was really frustrating (especially on a keyboard), I gave up after making it all the way to Cannon's Core. SA1 wasn't as hard, I beat it in one full playthrough (not one sitting). Then I got the Steam versions of both and they felt easier, I managed to beat SA2. I would like to get all A ranks in both games but man, it feels borderline impossible. Maybe it would be easier if I had a controller

also I'm only one achievement away from 100%ing Generations on Steam :x

Lemme guess - the one where you have to defeat Time Eater without getting hit even once?

It's really not. I could never get that one either.

A controller? As opposed to...?

Oh right, that's a thing, isn't it?

Can't even imagine trying to play Sonic Generations with that...

I got all the medals in SA1 and got that extra stage. I... don't know why... Lotta free time when you're a teen, I guess. I never beat any of the genesis games except Sonic & Knuckles. I am not a cool enough dude.
