Sega has some great momentum right now for sure. Sonic Mania is a smash hit. Sega Forever has launched (and has improved since having issues). And Sonic Forces is coming soon too! Things are looking good for the house that Sonic built here in 2017.
I'm surprised you didn't bring up Sega's other notable 2017 titles like Yakuza 0, Persona 5, Yakuza Kiwami, & Total War: Warhammer 2,
SEGA has been having a good year, but they are still far from having their act together. They have so many beloved IPs like NiGHTS, Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Skies of Arcadia, Panzer Dragoon, Condemned, etc. that they are not making any use of. When those games get quality installments again, then they'll be back
hey, if anything, finally seeing a damn good Sonic coming from post-Dreamcast Sega is already proof they're getting their s*** together!
The best thing that happened to Sega is showing their appreciation of their fans by publishing fan made games. That gesture hits home as a Sega fan. And believe you me they started a new trend in the industry. So much love in the air. That is priceless. No more banning of fan made games? Is this the syart of a good relationship between Sega and its fans?
@ Abash Many of those franchises have laid dormant because the crest might've left. @ SuperSonic Sega didn't start this trend. The practice of publishers accepting fan projects has existed long before Sonic Mania. Team Fortress, Counter Strike, Portal, Defense of the Ancients, Street Fighter X Mega Man and Skywind are famous examples of fangames that got picked up by the major publishers.
not to mention two great Yakuzas, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Vanquish and Bayonetta on PC, and so on!
Sorry ancient dinosaur ports lol and Tetris does not make a good evidence it is a good year. Sitting on way to many ips. Was an average year better then most.
Sega bought Atlus too i believe.. Sonic, Yakuza, Persona, etc.. Sega is earning my cash for sure.. I honestly was losing hope.. Things are looking up for now though
Yes they did and that is what turned things around for them. http://gamingtrend.com/news...
This the SEGA I knew when I was a kid. Its like welcoming an old friend.
