Well, since I can't do much else, I guess I'll tack on a little more here.
The first time I played a Sonic game was on christmas morning of 1994 when I got a Sega Genesis with Sonic 2 packed in.... I had actually asked for a SuperNintendo, but the salesman at the store talked my parents into buying a Sega Genesis instead. I wasn't really dissapointed... I had seriously never played a Sega Genesis before then because everyone I knew had SuperNintendo... what ended up happening was all my friends found out I got a Genesis and everytime I was invited I was asked to bring it with me.
Anyway, I have pretty much every Sonic game released... I've imported from Europe, Brazil, and Japan. I think there's only one I'm missing.
I also have a lot of sonic and related plushies.... and a near complete Sonic Comic collection, including regular issues, mini-series, superspecials...etc.... the only thing I'm missing are some strips that were published in Comic Shop News.
Oh, I also have a 10th Aniversary Sonic Figurine.
In general I collect/play for just about any game system I can get my hands on. But Sonic stuff is the main focus.
