Gametrailers recently uploaded a video. GT had a top 10 countdown to the worst blockbusters released. Beating ET, Sonic landed number 1. Sonic 06, Adventure 2, Unleashed, and Mario & Sonic were all mentioned.

Oh yeah, I remember this from earlier today. I dunno about SA2 and Unleashed or M&S, but I can see why '06 was on there. And I thought GT liked Sonic....

I know 06 is bad but E.T. is... E.T.

Also Adventure 2 and Unleashed? i mean they had flaws but they were pretty okay games. Certainly not flawed enough to be worse than E.T.

One of the terrible games for the Atari 2600 that kicked off the Video Game crash of the 60's.

I haven't heard of it, but judging from what you said, it's probably pretty bad.

60's.

I know video games were around then in a very basic form, but I still lol'd.

I don't want to come off sounding like a fanboy but......really?

I understand, Sonic games can be very disappointing at times, and at others truthfully bad, But even then how can the Sonic series surpass E.T! Whatever I guess Sonic is still considered bad.

Okay, so E.T is supposedly better than Unleashed, according to Game Trailers....I wonder how that happened.

Eh, I'm totally used to crap like this from gaming sites. Even though the recent games have been arguably pretty good (or at the very least decent), some people just love beating on a dead horse. Ah well.

It's because Sonic was at one time a very respected video game icon. Sure, Sa2 and SU and even the Mario & Sonic games aren't that bad (some are even okay/good), but Sonic has got to have had the highest fall from grace of any video game icon ever. I'm not saying he's like that now (I rather liked Colors, Gens, etc.) but to go from the classics which were fantastic to something like Sonic 06 is a pretty far fall. Sure ET is worse but it's a crappy movie tie in game that didn't start off as a hugely successful video game series so it isn't such a big deal.

No, what they did was they merged Adventure 2 Battle, '06, Unleashed and M&S in to one rank, and it turned out with these games together it's worse than E.T.

@speedfreak

Interesting thought, but one issue that bugs me is that Sonic's fall from grace didn't symbolize the near-collapse of the gaming industry like E.T. did, unless you're going to route of the franchise being the ultimate example of gaming consumerism gone horribly wrong.

I'm going to assume you know that ET was a massive blockbuster film but just didn't know that it was a game.

Please tell me you know it's a film.

Anyway.

List is bull. They even opened up the top entry with "we know Sonic's been doing well lately, but..." How pathetic can you get? Do you really have to go out of your way to insult Sonic?

Pisses me off.

Anyway while I disagree with GT with Sonic topping the list, I still think Sonic should be in this worst Top 10 Blockbusters list somewhere with Sonic '06. The game is a complete embarrassment to the franchise and to one of the top video game icons.

Sonic '06 doesn't deserve the 1 million sales it has got, I'm sorry. I know way better games, and sadly these "better" games never reached 1 million in sales.

LOL.

"The Sonic Franchise"? Yet only one Star Wars game made the list. Well, alright. Could have just put Sonic '06 on there, but okay. Yeah, no. It's cool.

EDIT: Also, the franchise that truly deserves that spot is Call of Duty. Just saying. :)

ThIs list is bullshit. Sure, the last few games have been pretty crappy, but Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 were good, and his 2d days were perfect. Now the series is trying to rebuild itself by returning to it's roots, and the last few games seem solid, this is far from the worst franchise ever. Is it perfect? Hell no. But it doesn't deserve this ranking.

Well you know it says something when a lot of the commenters of all people are point out how full of shit their list is.

Even more when they point out games like Call of Duty deserving to be on that list. :lol:
