I've always wondered why, out of probably any character, Eggman is one of the least controversial when it comes to his role or characterization. Not that there isn't some divide about him, but compared to the other main characters, debates about him tend to be the least vitriolic.
What does Eggman have that the others don't.
Uh... Team17? That Worms game... As interesting as it looks, don't abandon the turn-based gameplay that gave the series some uniqueness. That "a new era for Worms" line kind of makes it sound like you are.
