>be me>65 years old>I've been playing games ever since Space Invaders came out in the '70s>But my favorite game of all time? Sonic the Hedgehog.>Some people might find it strange that an old man like me loves a game about a blue hedgehog who runs really fast.>But Sonic is more than just a game to me. It's a reminder of my youth, a time when anything was possible and the world was full of adventure.>I still remember the first time I played Sonic on my Sega Genesis. The music, the colors, the speed>it was like nothing I had ever experienced before.>Over the years, I've played every Sonic game that's come out, from the classic 2D side-scrollers to the more recent 3D adventures.>Some of them have been better than others, but they've all had that same sense of excitement and energy that I love.>Whenever I'm feeling down or bored, I fire up my old Sega and spend some time with my favorite blue hedgehog.>And you know what? It never gets old.>Sonic may be a character from my past, but he still has the power to make me feel like a kid again.>So if you ever see an old man playing Sonic the Hedgehog, don't be surprised. >Just remember that age is just a number, and the love of a good game is timeless.
