I prefer Sonic. He holds a special place in my heart because I used to have all the Sonic Adventure games for Dreamcast as a kid, and I remember spending hours in the chao garden. Sonic has enriched my life and I still play it today.
Don't get me wrong, I love Mario though. Both series offer a variety of fun games.
I grew up with Sonic, but I love Mario too. However I think I do like Sonic more, I have gotten some of the newer games which of course aren't as good as the old fashion ones, but I do like the new graphics engine and boosting capabilities!! I was extremely obsessed with Sonic when I was little, I even started drawing because of the franchise. Mario is still holding up better than Sonic, though!! But honestly, I don't think they've ever been very comparable at all! They're both fantastic.
Like I said, I picked up some newer games, too. I've gotten Sonic Generations and I loved the redesigned levels and soundtrack to death, I also fell in love with Hedgehog Engine and decided to get Sonic Unleashed too, even though I knew it wasn't nearly as good. The day levels are fantastic, though. It's a shame the Wii version of Unleashed is missing Hedgehog Engine and tons of levels.
I thought unleashed was a 'different' Sonic game. It did feel like Sonic doing the God Of War thing, I do give credit for SEGA trying different things with Sonic, Mario games are all the same, but they are still fun...
It is, just like Twilight Princess was a 'different' Zelda game. It's OK to make changes! I just thought it could be a lot less stressful, though (the night levels were way too lengthy and very annoying at points!!). To be honest, I like Sonic better than Mario but I'm still certain that Mario is doing better than Sonic at the moment. Sonic tends to change around and Mario stays the same, but the execution is always excellent. Nonetheless, I don't really have any Mario games that I can play at the moment.
... ... ... I honestly can't choose. While I like Mario games i feel as though he's kinda stagnated in the department of innovation and its always the same basic platforming with new power-ups, fun yes, but i fell it could be so much more better.
As for Sonic, he and Sonic Team need a good hard re-booting! His recent games aren't really as good as they used to be, especially the 3D ones, where controlling him becomes as easy as steering a greasy pig on a road made of soap. I honestly like Sonic and wouldn't want him gone from the gaming world.
No, seriously. I'm not overly much into Jump'n Runs, and it's the one out of the Mario games I'd like to own the most after playing it for the first time at a friend's house. But I don't dislike the other two ones. Still, if I have to choose between those two, I'd go for Mario. The gameplay simply grips me more.
Back when I was a teenie bopper my answer would have been Sonic, but nowadays the Sonic games don't live up to my expectations, whereas the Mario games seem to maintain a constant quality, so grown up me prefers Mario
It's really tough. I can honestly think of a song from almost every game. Chemical Plant, Flying Battery, Ice Cap and Lava Reef, Live and Learn...even the terrible Sonic '06 had Dream of Absolution. Yeah, I guess right now that one is my favorite. The ones you mentioned are also really good and I should probably play Colors one day...
