I know that this isn’t MLP related but it’s important to note about how long I’ve been a Sonic fan and why Sonic himself is my favorite character of all time and is personally my idol.
It all started in 2008, I was 10-11 years old I think and I went into a game store with my mom because she told me I could pick out a game because of a lot of very good things that I did beforehand. I saw Sonic Unleashed for PS2, which at the time was the latest Sonic game, and I told my mom that I wanted that game and I remember her asking me why I wanted that one.
”The guy on the cover looks cool” is what I said.
So she bought it and when we got home, I immediately went to my room and played the game on my PS2. I loved this game and every thing was so awesome, because of how fast I could go and how awesome Sonic was. Over time, I managed to finish the game and after I did I told myself:
”That game was so fun! Is there any other games like this?”
And I was so correct. I looked up Sonic online and saw a good 20 other Sonic games and I wanted to play all of them. So, sometime later I got Sonic Mega Collection Plus for my PS2 and played through all of the Classic games and I loved all of them.
”Sonic is so awesome! He’s so fast and cool”
At that moment, my love for Sonic and his games soared. Every time a Sonic game came out, I’d always get it and play the hell out it. Sometimes at school, I’d even tell my friends how awesome Sonic is and how I wish I could be just like him.
(Sometimes during gym class, whenever we had to do running, I would hold my arms out like Sonic does and run... Silly, I know, but all I could think of at the time was Sonic)
And now, 11 years later and still a proud Sonic fan and always will be, because even if Sonic is a fictional character, he’s still my hero and someone I wanted to be!
I hope Sonic the Hedgehog keeps running until the end of time, so that I can continue running alongside him!
