100 Confessions: Sonic the Hedgehog
(21) As a kid, I was a HUGE Sonic the Hedgehog fan. I'm not just talking about the SEGA video games, although I did play through all of them and figured out how to get the emeralds to become Super Sonic in each. I also watched the television show during the brief stretch of time that it was on for Saturday morning cartoons (I actually had to wake up at 6 a.m. to see that one...) and built a huge collection of the comic books.
Looking back, I think I psychologically identified with a non-threatening character who was everything personality-wise that I was not: confident, smooth, beloved, etc. I also just thought the story was cool, especially the EndGame series.
