25+ Video Game Influencers Share Their First Favourite Game

Do you remember your first video game? How about your first favourite video game?

Pro Fan Boy got together over 25 video game influencers, myself included (I snuck in through a window and pretended that I belonged), and asked what their first favourite video game was.

My first favourite game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on my Sega Master System 2.  You can read my reasoning below:

“My first favourite game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2. My first ever console was an Atari 2600 Jr. but it wasn’t until I unwrapped my Sega Master System 2 on Christmas circa 2004 (we weren’t the richest) that I fell in love with video games thanks to that blue hedgehog.

My TV at the time was a black and white monstrosity with knobs for the brightness, contrast and the volume (it has one knob that I’d have to pop out and plug into the different holes to use – again, we were poor) but Sonic’s attitude and crazy speed were a lightyear away from the Atari games I had been playing. A few years later I was given a second-hand colour TV and it absolutely blew my mind that Sonic had been in colour the whole time! It was like having a whole new game to play!

I didn’t ever finish Sonic 2 but I still cherished my time with it. I even rebought a Master System 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to play with my daughter but all she wants to play is a cooking game on her Kindle. Kids, eh?”
