Title: Marble Zone
Game: Sonic the Hedgehog
System: Mega Drive
Theme Week: Starting out!
This is a personal one, Sonic 1 was the first video game I ever owned and so this is really me “starting out” in gaming. But surely Green Hill Zone would have been the better choice?
Well, yes and no; sure you hear green hill zone first and that music certainly has a big place in my gaming heart, but when i first started playing, getting to the marble zone was kinda a big deal for me and I really felt like I had achieved something. Also Marble zone is awesome, whereas Green Hill was all relaxed, Marble Zone was dangerous and if you’re a 5 year old with no sense of co-ordination, really rather hard.
