    This, especially. There's not really a 'point' to the Chaotix or background characters like Vanilla the Rabbit, but they're here anyway; and forgotten characters like Mighty and Ray have found a new purpose (playable ones!) despite not having much of a reason to be there, either. It can be done, it's just a matter of 'wanting' to have them there and doing something purposeful with them when they are.
    It's not like we're asking them to be playable necessarily (not that it's impossible to think of fun ways to play as them, just use your imagination), just more legacy characters to help develop the setting and flesh out Sonic's world. I mean, I'm pretty sure most of y'all hate "Solo-Sonica" to begin with, so the discrimination against these particular "non-canon" characters is sort of confusing to me.
    And... well, this is a "what I would do" topic, not a cross examination. A "bring back the Freedom Fighters" or "put Sally in the games" topic might be a better sort of thread to discuss the merits of putting these guys in the game canon.

    So now that it's ending in less than a month. Do yall think SM was the big game changer the anime needed when it was first shown off?

    I'm confused by and pretty tired of people telling me that these characters don't fit the series or add anything interesting. I don't even know what those words mean at all no matter how many times I hear them. Like, I'm fine with people not caring about them or not liking them to want to see them show up in the games, you don't have to waste your breath with really bizarre reasons that don't make any sense to justify that opinion

    I'm really against rebooting the franchise.
    We got a reboot when they made Sonic Boom and really nothing intelligent was done with the concept.
    We'll get a reboot when the Sonic movie comes out, and that version is just doubling down on the things nobody likes while avoiding most of what's recognizable about the character.
    Sonic isn't like other fictional characters who have iconic origin stories that can be retold again and again from new vantage points.  I don't think there's anything interesting to be done by retelling Shadow's backstory or the Perfect Chaos stuff.  Mostly it would just create more confusion than there already is about which details from prior continuity still "count".  There's nothing stopping the current Sonic universe from introducing new characters or exploring different kinds of worlds; we had plenty of that back in the Storybook and Rush games.
    Sonic isn't being held back by previous continuity, he's being held back by shallow characterization and an obsession with trying to play it 'safe' with the marketing.

    Like others have said, get rid of the "two worlds"/"two timelines" nonsense. Sonic is on one planet, with one continuity for all the games. Classic Sonic is the Sonic of the past, not Sonic from "another dimension." Regularly release both 2D and 3D platformers. 2D games would use the classic style gameplay and physics, a la Mania. 3D would be more like the Adventure games rather than the boost formula, with more of an emphasis on platforming than racing through mostly corridor-style levels. Continue letting Christian Whitehead have free reign over the 2D games. He and his team know what they're doing. Character-specific spinoffs. Start with ones who've already had their own titles like Tails and Knuckles, before veering into others. And - yes - Eggman would eventually have his day in the limelight after character spinoffs become an expected and accepted "third pillar" of the game series. Hire Ian Flynn as main storywriter. Give him extremely basic parameters but otherwise give the man space to work his magic. He's proven he's capable of writing Sonic stories that are goofy, dramatic, heartfelt, and tense; He has range, and I believe he'd be able to do the world and characters justice in a way no other game writer has. If all of this goes well and the franchise is profitable enough, commission an animated series that's true to the games to continue promoting the brand. These are just what I have in mind off the top of my head, but I feel like they're good ideas!

    Planet Freedom was a cool location and would honestly be a very easy way to separate the "sonic" world and "Human" world without the two dimensions nonsense

    Soniman reacted to Diogenes in What finally broke me   
    I don't think that's actually their intent. I assume what they're going with is that the original classic games happen to both Sonics, but in one dimension they lead to SA (or maybe Sonic 4 first if they still care about it) and the rest of Modern Sonic and in the other they lead to Mania and whatever else they might do with Classic Sonic in the future.

    Right, they expected it to be bad, based on the things that were supposed to convince them it was good. And, I should note, it was bad.
