  1. The reputation of the Sonic games will continue going doing the shitter unless the people in charge change their ways. I don’t see any reason for me to have any ounce of faith in SEGA since that track record of theirs isn’t that great. Like, I’m not gonna stop playing Sonic if the next one turns out to be another mediocre mess, but I’m sure as hell am going to continue keeping my expectations lower than dirt for future Sonic games.
  2. Welp, might as well give my own dream cast. Sonic- Josh Keaton Tails- Kate Higgins Amy- Lisa Ortiz Knuckles- Johnny Young Bosch Shadow- Yuri Lowenthal Rouge- Megan Hollingshead Omega- Crispin Freeman Cream- Michelle Ruff Big- Kyle Herbert Chaotix- Current voices Silver- Todd Haberkorn Blaze- Michelle Ruff Eggman- Mike Pollock
  3. That’s true, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make here. Whether they used the Classic designs or not, Mania would still be a commercial success just like any other Sonic game.
  4. Hmm fair point. Sonic Mania’s reception wouldn’t be any different if it involved the Modern cast so you’re right.
  5. I always treated Classic Sonic as nothing more than a previous design. So I guess you could say that I don’t have that much of an emotional attachment to the design or aesthetics. It’s rather ironic because Mega Collection plus one of the first Sonic games I played as a kid. When he was first revealed in Generations, my reaction was among the lines of “Oh that’s Sonic’s 1990’s design”. I definitely do think it was a huge mistake to split up Modern and Classic. The fanbase is already split up like shattered glass on the floor and treating these two like they’re different characters was not only downright stupid, but it also didn’t help with the divisions in the fandom. If they just abandoned Classic outright, I wouldn’t care all that much. The problem lies within the fact that there’s a lot of people that prefer the Classic designs and aesthetics, so there’s not much SEGA can do besides keeping Modern and Classic separate.
  6. Quite frankly, I’ve gotten so numb to the whole “Sonic bad lol” thing that’s been around for years. A lot of that has to do with a good amount of the scrutiny towards the franchise being well deserved. Compare that to how I was when I was a kid where the numerous “Sonic must die” articles or the hate Sonic gets in general on the internet would piss me off.
  7. That’s very unfortunate. He may not have been my ideal voice for Sonic, but I think it’s impressive that he was able to voice the character for that long, ten years to be exact.
  8. Should SEGA listen to us? I mean, in some ways they should but at the same time, who the hell are they gonna listen to? This fandom has so many different types of fans that there's no way that they can try to please us all at once and it working out in the end. Case in point, Sonic Forces. That game brought back the Boost gameplay for the Modern fans, Classic Sonic for the Classic fans, and a return to a more serious story for the Adventure games. It's beating a dead horse at point but I really don't care. We all know how much of a half baked mess that game turned out to be by trying to please everyone. It feels like no matter what SEGA does, a section of the fandom will be disappointed. They listened to older/Classic fans and critics a decade ago by removing Sonic's friends, humans, the serious tone. But oh wait, the kids who loved those games are all grown up now. They're now in the same position that the Classic fans were in years ago except they want those elements that defined 2000s era Sonic to return. It's like a cycle because it won't be long until the same thing happens to the next generation of fans. So should SEGA listen to us? I have no idea at this point.
  9. The biggest and most important thing about this possible Adventure remake for me is that I’d want anyone but Sonic Team making it. Developers like Vicarious Visions and Toys For Bob, the ones responsible for the Crash Bandicoot remastered trilogy and fourth sequel are some I can come up with off the top of my head.
  10. There definitely needs to be some rethinking at SEGA on what direction they want to take this franchise. They should first of all, stop trying to please everyone because when you have a fanbase as fractured as Sonic's, it's literally impossible to please everyone since we all like Sonic for different things and each have our own vision for where we want this series to go. A focused direction is what this franchise should strive to achieve. SEGA's has had that same old "throw everyone at the wall and see what sticks" mentality for far too long and it hasn't been helping them in the long run.
  11. I sincerely hope this new cartoon finds a balance between having comedic moments and more serious/intense scenes without leading too much towards either side. That’s pretty much the tone that any media of Sonic should strive for, whether it’s the games, comics, etc.
  12. The best thing to do is to keep your expectations VERY low.
  13. Popular or Unpopular Opinion: I still love SA2’s story and I always will, but I’ve started to realize that some of it’s darker elements aren’t that fitting for the series in my opinion. Like when I was recently watching Gerald’s speech before he was gunned down by a firing squad and it was still bone chillingly dark, but I couldn’t really take it seriously because I felt that it tonally clashed with Sonic and co, who are cartoon animals with oversized shoes and gloves btw. Despite that, it never lost sight of the cheesy fun and attitude that the series is known for. At least in comparison to Shadow and 06.
  14. We’ll most likely get an announcement during SSXW 2021. I can’t see them announcing anything 30th anniversary related this early.
  15. For as long as I’ve been a Sonic fan, I’ve seen countless outsiders dismiss the Sonic fanbase as people that make fetish porn and deviantart OC’s, or blind fanboys that will defend anything with Sonic’s name on it . I never understood why there was such a stigma against people that like Sonic. There’s so much talented people in this community that make ROM hacks, fangames, art, music, and mods that it makes me wonder why there’s such a negative perception of us.
