    I think about the Luminous Forest stage from Forces and how that snake section was such an utter failure in what they were trying to go for. Like I understajd they wanted a cinematic set piece like a lot of Sonic stages in other games do but it's just so half assed. Like the snake has no presence in the stage prior so it seems utterly random and in a Eggman controlled area it could've at least have been a robot snake for consistency. On top of that it's over in like 15 seconds because there's no gameplay involved just a QTE??? Cinematically it's not impressive and there's no gameplay and it's over in 15 seconds so what was even the point in having it? There's just so many "???" moments in the game but that one always sticks out for me

    Finished Season 1 of Sonic X and overall? Not to bad. I think making aroubd Eggman's monster of the week makes for a good format because Eggman is actually really good in this, the other characters are okay like Rouge, Cream, Sonic and Knuckles are pretty good, helps that Knuckles was still the designated rival for Sonic who was stoic and no nonsense instead of the bumbling hot headed goofball he'd later become in the games and show later. Tails and Amy though have pretty firmly settled into their dark age era personas, Tails' doesn't have much personality besides "smart" because has role as Sonic's BFF has be taken up by you know who and  Amy's personality is just " Sonic".
    I also like the human characters surprisingly enough. Chris' grandfather, his caretakers, his uncle Sam, even his own friends I like more than him
    It's weird, I didn't mind Chris all that much during S1 like I at least tolerated him but during the finale the dude underwent negative character development where he was resolved to get Sonic and friends home and realized he was being selfish but by the end when it's time to say goodbye he's a blubbering crybaby screaming for Sonic not to go and he ends up getting what he wants, this marks a turn for the character be never comes back from and it gets worse from there 
    Anyway since I'm binging this now I guess I'll keep going, game adaptations here I come!

    The trend of race bending anime characters (almost always black) comes up now and then on Twitter and it never not bugs me. As a black person I understand the need for representation but like....race changing characters that already represent an entirely different culture people or Japan (because let's be real it almost always always is anime characters) makes me uncomfortable I guess? Characters from MHA, KNY, Mob Psycho, etc who have Japanese names and live in Japan having their race changed mmm...idk man it just rubs me the wrong way. Like I'm not sure what it accomplishes as it doesn't actually create more representation because the characters are always gonna be the race they are, but people love to pat themselves on the back because they turned Josuke's skin dark 🤷‍♀️

    BOTW existing probably will help Skyward Sword because instead of people being terrified of it being the new series direction it can just be judged as a wholly unique quirky game that is just all Dungeon-like in design with the appropriate QOL changes

    Something I'm kinda bitter about eith Forces in its myriad of story problems and missed opportunities is the idea of Silver kinda being a stand in "champion of the people" in Sonic's absence. He has the power and optimism to back it up but maybe not the confidence. Shadow is aloof and emotionally distant  and does things behind the scenes so would probably reject the spotlight so it all falls on Silver to be the shinning beacon of the resistance and he knows he can't fill that hole Sonic left behind...or something like that. He had the closest thing to a cool fight scene in cutscenes with Infinite and their power sets would make for an interesting rivalry even if Silver would be outclassed idk I'm rambling, just thinking about what could've been lol

    Though it's pretty obvious to anyone how unfortunate the state of Sonic is currently. Games  like Crash 4 really highlight to me just how utterlbehind the games are in so many ways. Crash levels are vibrant full of life and  interesting design, cutscenes are beautifully animated with a competent story and good character handling. It's not perfect but you can tell the people who made this really GET Crash and deeply care about making a good entry to the series. Games like Forces feel so utterly sterile and soulless by comparison it really is an eye opener just how much this franchise is missing.
