Sonic Mania looks to be a return to the classic days of 16-bit era gaming. So why shouldn't Sega give these other franchises a shot? WWG lists their favorites.
Because Sonic is Sega's biggest franchise and Sega's other franchises don't have nearly as prolific a modding community
I am tired of people saying Sonic need a comeback. More like people need to grow up and except the fact that Sonic will have amazing and bad games. Also people need to let go of the if it's not like the Genesis Sonic games it irrelevant Sonic Mania does nothing but feeds off Nostalgia. It's neither making Sonic comeback or reviving.
Just curious, when was the last time Sega released an amazing Sonic game? It sure wasn't 06, Unleashed, Black Knight, Colors, Secret Rings, 4, Lost World, Boom, or even Generations (because it's like you said, feeding off nostalgia). Maybe two of the above were barely good, but definitely not amazing.
Sonic Colors and Generation.
@ OtakuDJK1NG-Rory I actually agree. Over the many years sega has been trying new things with the franchise. from a pinball sonic game, to puzzles and even exploration. when it comes to trying new things there will always be risks. it's a gamble. But some times the risks can be worth it. I personally enjoyed Sonic Generations immensely and still think it should be given plenty recognition. I think after many trial and error attempts Sega will make an even better Sonic game. gamers need to have an open mind when it comes to franchise experimenting.
Cuz Sonic also has a big new game coming afterwards. I don't see Sega putting much effort into another on of their classic franchises if there isn't a new modern game accompanying it
Skies of Arcadia Vectorman Ristar Comix Zone
Vectorman? Vectorman sucks, come on! I'd love a new Street of Rage, but you got to have Yuzo Koshiro, if you don't have him what's the point?. Phantasy Star is one of the most neglected Sega's ip's (mainly because of the potential it has). I never like any of the Shinobi console games (Love the first one on the arcades) Maybe a new Skies of Arcadia... Golden Axe, another Nights, you got Opa Opa... and even like really old forgotten sht: Oh Sega has so much! and it's doing so little...
I'd like to see another Alex Kidd & a Streets of Rage game. And I know its not Sega but another Strike game from EA would be great too.
I'm still dreaming about Sonic+Sonic2+Sonic3+Sonic& Knuckles HD Remix or something. No, not Sonic Mania, just those with HD graphics and maybe some little extra. This said, i'm looking forward for Sonic Mania too and absolutely not for Sonic Force.
