Current age: 22

Gender: Male

Country: US

1. What are your personal favorite 3 Sonic games? Going up: Sonic Generations, Sonic 2 and Sonic 3&K.

2. What are your least favorite 3 Sonic games? Going down: Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic 06 and Shadow the Hedgehog.

3. What 3 Sonic games do you think are the best? Same as Question 1.

4. What 3 Sonic games do you think are the worst? Same as Question 2.

5. What Sonic game do you think is over hyped? I assume you mean overrated, in which case Sonic Colors.

6. What Sonic game was the most disappointing for you? Sonic and the Secret Rings.

7. What was your first Sonic game? Sonic 1.

8. What is your favorite Sonic gameplay style (2D platformer, “Boost-to-win”, pet sim, RPG, etc.)? 2D platformer, of course. I love the Genesis-era classics, but I really love the boost style of gameplay Sonic Rush and Unleashed/Generations have too.

9. What 3 gameplay styles would you like to see the Sonic brand go/return to? Sonic Generations had a formula that worked and they should stick with it. I'd of course like to see a return to the classics too, and a Sonic Adventure type of game would actually be pretty nice if done right.

10. Which game incarnation of Sonic (Classic, Modern, Boom) is your favorite (stylistically)? Classic.

11. Which incarnation of Sonic would you like to see return, or what new art style would you like to see? Idk about incarnation, but I'd like to see an art style that was more surreal like Naoto Ohshima's original vision, seen in Sonic CD.

12. How many years have you been a Sonic fan? Since I was 5 years old.

13. What Sonic product/people brought you to the franchise? My older brother had a Genesis with Sonic 1 in the original case, and I played it religiously every time we went to my grandmother's house.

14. Who are your top 3 favorite Sonic characters? Going up: Shadow, Tails and Eggman.

15. Who are you top 3 Sonic villians? Games only, going up: Eggman Nega, Chaos and Eggman.

16. Which 3 game villains (excluding Eggman) would you like to see return? Chaos, Eggman Nega and I guess Metal Sonic if they make him cool again.

17. Which 3 enemy types are your favorite (Classic Badnicks, Black Arms, Egg Pawns, etc.) Going up: GUN robots, Egg Pawns and Badniks.

18. Which, if any, entities (characters, locations, etc.) from other Sonic media would you want to see in the games? I want to see Sonic's world actually be named Mobius.

19. What Sonic product lines (games, shows, comics, etc.) do you purchase? The last game I bought was Generations, and I used to be subscribed to the Archie stuff before my subscription ran out about a year ago.

20. What is your favorite Sonic series (Archie, Boom, X, OVA, Sega!Sonic, etc)? To be perfectly honest I like the Archie comics better than the games themselves. But of course Sonic would be nothing without the games.

21. How many Sonic games have you played? Almost all of them. The only ones I haven't played off the top of my head are Knuckles Chaotix, Sonic 06, Black Knight and Lost World.

22. How many Sonic games have you owned? Aside from Sonic 1, I played all the classics via the Mega Collection. Everything else I've played I still have the physical copies for. I lost my copy of Sonic 1 a long time ago, but I actually have a cartridge of Sonic 2 now.

23. How many Sonic games have you completed the campaign (All Chaos Emeralds, Final Chapter, etc.)? All that I've played except for Unleashed and Colors, the latter of which I'm playing right now.

24. How many Sonic games have you %100ed (All A Ranks, All Emblems, etc.)? Generations and that's it. It's just not worth it otherwise.

25. Are you more likely to pre-order/ buy a Sonic game in the month of release, or wait? Wait, although I did preorder Generations.

26. Which game consoles (including handhelds,) do you own? NES, Sega Genesis, PS2, Xbox, 360, Wii, PS3, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, DS, DSi XL and PSP. Also a capable PC.

27. Which console do you have the most Sonic games for? Technically PS2 counting Mega Collection Plus.

28. Have you ever bought a console because of a Sonic game? No, but the Genesis my brother had gradually became mine since I played Sonic 1 all the time on it. I guess that sortof counts?

29. How do you interpret the Sonic canon (consider the classic games a different universe, believe in the distinction of two worlds in the Sonic universe, consider spin off games non-canon, hold Japanese instruction manuals over American, etc.)? The Sonic canon is an absolute mess, but I personally like to think the classic games are a different universe entirely.

30. What is your preferred name for Sonic’s world(s) (Earth, Mobius, Planet Freedom, etc)? Mobius.

31. What is the average amount of time you put into Sonic games? (not in a sitting, but over all) It takes me about an hour or so to beat any of the Genesis games. For 3D games it takes roughly 10 hours.

32. What Sonic have you clocked the most time into (state the amount)? Since it was the first Sonic game I ever played, Sonic 1. I played it every time we went to my grandmother's house, which was often, and I could never beat Labyrinth Zone until years later. I probably clocked weeks worth of time into that game in my childhood.

33. Where do you see the Sonic franchise in ten years? Either dead or developed by fans instead.

34. If you had the opportunity to give the Sonic brand to a different developer which would it be, if any? Nintendo.

35. What is your favorite interpretation of Sonic’s characterization? Honestly I think Sonic X characterized Sonic almost perfectly. I really like the Sonic OVA's version too.

36. What do you feel is Sonic’s current characterization? Honestly I think the HTF have hurt Sonic's likability. Now he's an annoying rat that acts like a rejected Looney Tunes character. I want to punch him in the face sometimes.

37. How many, if any, Sonic games are in your top ten favorite video games? One, and that's Sonic 3&K.

38. What has been your favorite Sonic cross-over/cameo to date (TMNT, Spawn, Zelda, etc)? I didn't even know there was a TMNT cameo. I guess Smash?

39. Which Sonic game/show has your favorite Soundtrack? That's really hard. I would say Generations, but that's too easy. I'm partial to Sonic Adventure and Sonic CD JPN.

40. What is are your 3 favorite Sonic song? Also difficult. Going up: "What I'm Made Of...", "Chosen One" and "Dreams of an Absolution (LB vs JS Remix)". I'm a big fan of techno over Crush 40, as much as I love them. Honorable mention goes to the unused tracks of Shadow The Hedgehog, "Broken" and "Who I Am" both of which I love, but they're not official Sonic songs.

41. What other video game franchise would you consider Sonic Team's greatest competition for your attention? NiGHTS.

42. What are your top 3 Sonic locations? Going up: Apotos, Little Planet and Angel Island.

43. What 3 Sonic zones would you like to see return in a Sonic game? White Acropolis, Egg Fleet and Marble Zone.

44. With what Sonic game have you encountered the most bugs? Sonic Adventure DX, definitely.

45. What Sonic game do you think deserves a (narrative) sequel? Sonic 4 Episode 2. In terms of story, it was just getting interesting.

Spoiler: show
Current age: 16

Gender: Male

Country: USA

1. What are your personal favorite 3 Sonic games? Sonic Generations, Sonic Adventure, Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

2. What are your least favorite 3 Sonic games? Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Chronicles.

3. What 3 Sonic games do you think are the best? Overall? Sonic 2, 3&K, and Generations are probably the least flawed.

4. What 3 Sonic games do you think are the worst? See: least favorites.

5. What Sonic game do you think is over hyped? Sonic 1, without a doubt. It's really not that great of a game on its own, I only really enjoy half of it.

6. What Sonic game was the most disappointing for you? Sonic 06. Especially when I listen to the soundtrack, which has so much passion and effort put into it.

7. What was your first Sonic game? Sonic Heroes.

8. What is your favorite Sonic gameplay style (2D platformer, “Boost-to-win”, pet sim, RPG, etc.)? I find Sonic more enjoyable in 3D. The gameplay style isn't so big of a deal for me, as long as it controls well and there's good level design.

9. What 3 gameplay styles would you like to see the Sonic brand go/return to? Adventure, Boost, and Classic.

10. Which game incarnation of Sonic (Classic, Modern, Boom) is your favorite (stylistically)? Modern.

11. Which incarnation of Sonic would you like to see return, or what new art style would you like to see? I think Sega should go back to the original Japanese design of Classic Sonic whenever they bring out Classic. I'm not too big of a fan of the bright-blue "cutesy" version in Generations and Runners.

12. How many years have you been a Sonic fan? 11 years, I believe.

13. What Sonic product/people brought you to the franchise? Sonic X was my introduction to the series. I used to watch the 4Kids dub on Saturday mornings.

14. Who are your top 3 favorite Sonic characters? Sonic, Shadow, and Blaze.

15. Who are you top 3 Sonic villians? Eggman, Mephiles, and Metal Sonic (when he's used correctly, the best example being Heroes).

16. Which 3 game villains (excluding Eggman) would you like to see return? Metal Sonic (Heroes version, with an actual personality), Mephiles, and Finitevus (but we all know that's not happening).

17. Which 3 enemy types are your favorite (Classic Badniks, Black Arms, Egg Pawns, etc.) Badniks, Egg Pawns, and Metarex (do they count?)

18. Which, if any, entities (characters, locations, etc.) from other Sonic media would you want to see in the games? The Freedom Fighters would be cool to see, but I don't really care either way. The games have a substantial enough cast of characters.

19. What Sonic product lines (games, shows, comics, etc.) do you purchase? I buy anything Sonic-related I can get my hands on, but mainly I collect the comics and games.

20. What is your favorite Sonic series (Archie, Boom, X, OVA, Sega!Sonic, etc)? Nu252 Archie Sonic linked with SEGA!Sonic is my favorite version of the Sonic universe.

21. How many Sonic games have you played? Ummm... it might be easier to list the ones I haven't played, which is just a few spin-offs like Riders, R, Fighters, etc. I also haven't played either version of Lost World or Boom, since I don't own a 3DS or Wii U.

22. How many Sonic games have you owned? ^^^^

23. How many Sonic games have you completed the campaign (All Chaos Emeralds, Final Chapter, etc.)? Sonic Rush, Sonic Colors DS.

24. How many Sonic games have you %100ed (All A Ranks, All Emblems, etc.)? Sonic Generations. I collected all Red Star Rings, S-ranked every main act, and completed every mission.

25. Are you more likely to pre-order/ buy a Sonic game in the month of release, or wait? I would love to buy every game on release, but I usually wait for financial reasons.

26. Which game consoles (including handhelds,) do you own? I own a PS2, PS3, Wii, Dreamcast (I actually have 2), N64, Genesis, DSi, PSP, and a gaming PC (does that count?).

27. Which console do you have the most Sonic games for? Probably Wii. The only Sonic Wii games I don't have are the Olympics ones.

28. Have you ever bought a console because of a Sonic game? Yes. The main reason I bought a PS3 was for Generations.

29. How do you interpret the Sonic canon (consider the classic games a different universe, believe in the distinction of two worlds in the Sonic universe, consider spin off games non-canon, hold Japanese instruction manuals over American, etc.)? I wholeheartedly support holding the Japanese manuals as the highest form of canonical information in the classic games, and believe every game is in the same universe.

30. What is your preferred name for Sonic’s world(s) (Earth, Mobius, Planet Freedom, etc)? Mobius.

31. What is the average amount of time you put into Sonic games? (not in a sitting, but over all) A lot. Sonic games are my go-to when I just wanna relax and play a game. Just to give you an idea, I've only owned Sonic Generations on Steam since January of this year and I've logged 52 hours into it.

32. What Sonic have you clocked the most time into (state the amount)? Sonic Generations. 52 hours on Steam, probably thousands of hours on PS3.

33. Where do you see the Sonic franchise in ten years? I honesty don't know. With Sega's current situation and the split with Sonic Boom, it's really hard to say. Hopefully, Sega gets their act together sometime between now and then.

34. If you had the opportunity to give the Sonic brand to a different developer which would it be, if any? While I think Sonic Team should always develop the main Sonic games, a spin-off developed by Galaxy Trail, LakeFeperd, or even Nintendo would be interesting.

35. What is your favorite interpretation of Sonic’s characterization? Ian Flynn's/Sonic Unleashed and the Storybook games. (I think they're all pretty spot-on)

36. What do you feel is Sonic’s current characterization? I haven't seen Lost World's story, but as of Colors (Generations didn't really have enough of a story to judge), I thought Sonic's character was written pretty well.

37. How many, if any, Sonic games are in your top ten favorite video games? Sonic Generations, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic 3&K I would consider to be in my top 10.

38. What has been your favorite Sonic cross-over/cameo to date (TMNT, Spawn, Zelda, etc)? Worlds Collide! (haven't read Unite yet, so it might be getting topped soon)

39. Which Sonic game/show has your favorite Soundtrack? Ooh... this is tough. I'd either go with CD (both OSTs), SA1, 06, or Unleashed. They all have their own unique qualities and it's hard to pick a favorite.

40. What are your 3 favorite Sonic songs? Probably Crisis City, Endless Possibility, and Hydrocity Zone Act 2.

41. What other video game franchise would you consider Sonic Team's greatest competition for your attention? Rayman Origins holds the title of my favorite game ever, so definitely Rayman. I'm way more invested in Sonic, though, and that will never change.

42. What are your top 3 Sonic locations? Apotos, Angel Island (the entire island), and Crisis City.

43. What 3 Sonic zones would you like to see return in a Sonic game? None. I want to see new ideas. We've had enough callbacks.

44. With what Sonic game have you encountered the most bugs? I don't seem to have trouble with bugs for the most part. I feel inclined to say 06, but I can't recall encountering too many in that game.

45. What Sonic game do you think deserves a (narrative) sequel? SA2. I miss the darker plots. They're what separated Sonic from Mario in the Adventure days.

19. What Sonic product lines (games, shows, comics, etc.) do you purchase? Games and comics, books, occasionally toys. Don't really own any of the shows. I have some other odds and ends around. If I had the money, I'd have bought that Classic Sonic 3D glass I saw...

28. Have you ever bought a console because of a Sonic game? Dreamcast.

Given their cameo in Generations, yes, they do count.

The hardest question has to be the top 3 vocal themes. I keep going back and changing my answer.
