How often, as a video game player, do you find yourself wanting to play old school games like Mario, Donkey Kong Country, or Sonic? How often do you find yourself having the urge just to conquer your most favorite old school game again? For myself, I just purchased the Sega Genesis Collection game for the PS3 so I could play and conquer Sonic 2 all over again. I took it upon myself to ask the local people around the Blasdell area these same exact questions.
Below are the questions that I posted on Facebook and Twitter to my local viewers and friends that play video games. Below each of the questions that I posted, I will give you the most common answers that local viewers had to say about it.
