Growing up... Sega WAS Sonic and vice-versa to me. Sometimes being multiplatform does "take away" from the experience a bit imo (especially nowadays when everything is just done for "how to maximize profits")

Sonic Adventure 2 was my favorite Sonic game.

For sure, not sure how I'd rank it vs the 2D games, but in terms of pure fun SA2 is a very fun game.

Yuji Naka was a big reason why Saturn failed (it really needed a Sonic game, and he refused to let Sonic team use his Nights engine for a Sonic game, and creating another engine from scratch was difficult because of Saturn's weird architecture) and Sega never recovered from that. So his opinions about Sega having to release games for other consoles don't matter.

Saturn failed because Bernie Stolar announced publicly that the system wasn't their future. Which ticked off several 3rd party publishers and devs (i.e. Working Designs and Eidos), resulting in them dropping support for the system and working exclusively with Sony and PSX.
