    See title.

    Ironically: Knuckles in China Land

    Unironically: Tied between Sonic Utopia, Sonic VR (the ROM hack), and Sonic Overture

    I am a big fan of Sonic VR, as it challenges your skill with Sonic and it's really fun to actually beat each challenge it gives you. Also, PCM music is nice.

    Favorite fan games would have to be Sonic round 7 and Utopia in recent memory.
    Sonic vs Darkness is also pretty cool imo it feels like what rush should have been like.

    Completed only...

    Probably Eggman Hates Furries. I'm also obviously partial to Overbound's Time Twisted... but that's cheating since I had a hand in it even if just a slight one.

    Sonic Dragon Edition: Great music and mostly wonderful level design, i'm sorta cheating though since I get to beta test it.

    Sonic VR: My favorite hack ever made. I love challenge hacks.

    Psycho Waluigi. Not a lot of people talk about it but it's really fuckin good. The concept is unique, the levels are one of the most creative levels in any fangame ever, and even the story is somewhat interesting.

    But when it comes to Sonic it's tough to say. So far I really liked Project Survival, but it's just 1 zone. Same for Sonic vs Darkness TNR, it's also like 2 zones long too. So I guess it's Sonic ATS.

    My Favorite Rom Hack is a cliché , but I think the one hack that always inspired me and amazed more then anything has to be Sonic 1 The Next Level by Markey Jester.
    it is so full of the most beautiful environments I seen in any Rom Hack, high technical stuff that looks really beautiful and keep things fresh, Music that sounds so smooth and crisp even on actual hardware (and good choise in songs) and even smoother animations for Sonic. this hack is like the top of everything that every hack wish it could reach and I don't see it being toped by anything any time soon. unless maybe Markey is planing something for next SHC which I am looking forward to

    There are some incredible community contributions to various Blitz Sonic games, many of which were a major inspiration for me in starting the project that eventually became Utopia. I appreciate Blitz and its legacy greatly.

    I liked utopia a lot but I'll wait until it's finished, same with overture. I'm gonna have to go with Metal Sonic Hyperdrive I think, or Sonic 1 Burned Edition.

    For favorite fangame, Sonic After the Sequel. I had fun playing again recently, because of the new version with the drop dash and extra boss. For ROM hack, Sonic Megamix. I like how powerful Sonic is, it's fun to use the jump and light speed dashes.

    I personally can't seem to get enough of Sonic Classic Heroes, even ended up putting it on my PSP and playing it quite alot on the go. Tho yeah, After/Before the Sequels and Megamix are pretty damn awesome too.

    My favorite fangame was Chrono Adventure, primarilly because it took the Sonic formula and tried a Metroidvania style spin on it. It's the only one of LakeFeperd's games I finished, and I've gotta say it was the best of the bunch.

    I don't have one, since I only have Sonic Boom for 3DS (my parentz didn't know how bad it was), Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 4 Episode 2 and Sonic CD for IOS, and Sonic Mania for Switch. However, I do have plans for a Sonic 1 hack that has CD's time travel mechanics, and also adds in Chemical Plant Zone, splitting Act 2 in half. A bit lazy, I know, but a big project with my limited rescources. Also, I would create a Sonic CD hack that allows you do customize your music score between JP and US for each individual track, and a Mania music mod with CD US tracks.

    And a fangame called "Sonic Genesis" that blends Classic and Modern gameplay.

    This thread isn't about fan games and ROM hacks you're making. It's about fan games and ROM hacks from other people that you like, which I'm sure you could've understood very easily by simply reading the title of the thread. I don't know why you are posting about game ideas you have. Did you even bother reading the thread title, or even look at the rest of posts before posting.

    And even if I'm misinterrupting what you said, and that the "I don't have one" means that you don't have a favorite fan game, then why'd you bother posting. And I tried looking up "Sonic Genesis Fangame" to see if you're actually talking about someone else's game and not talking about an idea, and I could only find one game which doesn't even blend Classic/Modern gameplay.

    I sort of just got carried away. In any case, I apologize. I am new to this wiki, and new people tend to do incredibly stupid things.
