Let's cheer Sonic on for once, yeah? Maybe 2020 could be a good year for him with lots of promising announcements.
Sonic has redeemed itself various times over the years. That’s never been the issue The real topic at hand is Sonic staying on the path of good quality consistently
This. Sonic is inconsistent in quality
Was it ever at the top? I love sonic but come on they had so many utter guff games pretty much since mega drive. Always struggled in 3d sonic adventure was alright as good as say Mario 64 don’t be silly. Really enjoyed generations tho they should make a number 2 or a sonic5 Sonic4 was pretty decent but handling seemed a bit off. Not played enough mania yet does look cool tho never beat the mega drive trilogy tho or sonic2/3 & knuckles
Have you ever play sonic at all?
Yeah have you, how was shadow and all the other guff they released. Sonic is best in 2d
The Rush series was very good IMO, and i think they proved 3D Sonic can work well like they did with SA2.
Rush was fantastic. I literally bought a DS Lite back in the day to play it. Great times.
Your whole thing is invalidated when you didn’t beat the mega drive main 4 titles. Anyway, you don’t seem to have played much Sonic. Adventure 1 and 2 were both great but glitches weren’t scarce. The thing with the 2 games is generally you loved 1 or the other because they drastically changed things between games. Personally SA1 is decent but I loved SA2. Also while the Werehog stages were pretty mediocre and annoying for the play through itself as you wanna play as normal sonic. Sonic unleashed day time stages exceed both Generations and forces in design. Generations was good but they really played it a lot more safe making it a lot easier. Generations without the werehog would probably be the best sonic 3D game imo. But also, we’re not about to pretend Sonic Transformed isn’t one of the best kart styles racers to come out. Forces was a let down and Team sonic racing is actually really good but they really needed to support the game and fix the online. Which didn’t happen so it fell. Plus CTR releaseing didn’t help it either lol. I can say that after 06, generally All the console games that weren’t Nintendo exclusive were great, as well as colours though I do hate the boost mechanic in it. Still was great. The rush titles, advance titles were all great too. If I’m being honest, most of sonic issues stem from them trying to break the mood too much. Sonic lost world is about as safe of a jump as can be taken. That game is okay.
Wow, I 100% agree with all you just said. And here I thought was the only one hahaha. This next Sonic game will tell me if Sega can make Sonic great again. If not, then we'll probably never have another one again since those talented teams who used to work on the Sonic games are long gone doing bigger things.
A high quality Sonic Mania 2 & 3, no other shite spinoffs. Problem solved.
How about a 3D/2D hybrid game where for the 3D segments Sonic has to use brains and caution to collect McGuffins on precarious platforms, and speed segments transition to 2D side scrolling?
Try sonic generations
The problem with Sonic was, they never really evolved the formula, Sonic 2 was basically the peak. It's the same game everytime basically. Compared to Mario, which had made huge strides with each new game (with a few exceptions). It's a shame they couldn't progress the series more.
Dude, Mario is exactly the same thing always.
That isn't True. Even with the first 4 Super Mario console games they each had their own style. How? The play mechanics were very different in each game. Now if you said the "New Super Mario" is all the same..... Yes. That's only the 2D games. With the 3D games it's way different than the 2D ones. Most of the 3D games follow Mario 64s core but Super Mario 3D World/Land also have a unique feel. The Consistency in good gameplay is why Mario games haven't really fallen off except for the New Super Mario games that have gotten stale.
Super Mario bros 3/world/64/sunshine/galaxy/ody ssey Some 2d some 3d all timeless classics (except maybe sunshine but it’s still pretty great) they all pretty different apart from sure it’s Mario and it’s a platformer. All rated 9/10 if not higher and voted on endless best gamers ever lists. When was the last time a sonic game made one of those. Sonic 1/2/3 all fantastic and add knuckles cart even better but 3d sonic has been terrible 1 or 2 games at best are playable but always a bad camera and just generally not all that great Sega have always struggled to get sonic to work in 3d like Nintendo smashed 1st attempt and have got arguably better and better with each iteration. I got time for both but say Mario is the same is lazy. Sonic being vastly different between iterations is not a selling point as they’ve been awful.
Just like Mario Kart and Pokémon, it's the same.
What are you talking about? Sonic has gone through so many evolutions that it's part of the reason why the fanbase is so divided.
Evolutions? Gone off on a tangent more like. That’s why sonic 4 and mania both went back to 2d so how is that evolution.
Nope. Crash and Spyro perhaps but not Sonic.
Hes good people. Lol
We waited something 20 years for Mania. We got it. It was perfect. So either let the Blue boy die and rest in piece, or get Christian Whitehead back in and make us another 2D game.
I don't know about perfect... A lot of people liked it but something about some of the level designs were, meh. Something about that game just didn't feel right to me.
Don't speak for everyone. I didn't wait for Mania for 20 years, I was happy with the 3D Sonic games we were getting, I still am. I think they should move away from the boost gameplay now though. Some Sonic fans just can't let go of the past. They are obsessed with the old 2D days and have never been able to let go.
I’ve always been a sonic over Mario fan , even though platformers are not my thing. But anywhere looking forward for he movie , although around 25 years too late . if It’s not fortnight kids don’t care in today’s world
I mean i would have no reason to say definitely not but nothing has happened to indicate that it would happen
