    Your going to have to give more than just an image here as that's considered spam here.
     
    Also, if you can't at least explain why you feel a certain way (let alone respect their opinions by not calling them "whiners") then please don't bother posting it.  That is also spam, not to mention just a tad petulant and pretentious.

    Dude... don't. While people myself may like this game, I don't think it's a good idea to dismiss everyone else as whiners.

    Okay, folks, speaking as somebody who is LGBT (transgender and lesbian, in case you were wondering), I'm going to go out on a limb and say how much it royally sucks that almost no children's media includes LGBT characters. While it isn't always true (in my case it wasn't), a lot of us realise that we're LGBT pretty early on in life and being confronted by nothing but heteronormative, straight, cisgender characters in popular media can really make you feel like an isolated freak, and that can be a harmful thought to grow up with. So I personally think there ought to be more LGBT characters in children's media (and the wider media in general too, because we're still grossly underepresented) if only to A. let kids who are LGBT know that they're not alone and B. let all the other kids know that there's nothing wrong with being LGBT and that they should support and care for their friends and family if any of them are. And if Archie's Sonic wanted to have one or two LGBT characters, that'd be fine by me. Provided they were well written. 
     
    And that's the problem. Penders would not have written them well. For a man who has, to his credit, made a lot of female characters, he can't even do something as simple as pass the Bechdel test. So I somehow doubt he'd be able to demonstrate the understanding and sensitivity to write a gay character well (to say nothing of a trans character -- in fact, I shudder at the thought). So, while making Rotor gay is an interesting idea and one I have no problem at all with, I don't think Penders would have been the right person to write Rotor as a gay character. I mean, this man thinks he's a trailblazing progressive in comics writing, but his first foray into writing a feminist message (StH #15) involved Sally and Bunnie walking into a trap disguised as a mini mall -- because, y'know, women can't resist shopping, even in a world run by a global dictator where money no longer has any value and a mini mall ought to look deeply suspicious, particularly to someone as intelligent as Sally. Although, I wonder if Penders would blame co-author, Kanterovich or Archie itself for making him write it that way.
     
    One final point.
       
    The problem is that most people will interpret fictional characters, unless otherwise stated, as being straight and cisgender. Case in point, recall the uproar from people when J.K. Rowling announced that Albus Dumbledore was gay. Everybody had just assumed that he was straight, because his orientation had never been relevant to the story. That's the problem; heterosexual, cisgender, (male, white, western, and Christian, if we really want to get into specifics) is taken as the default by most of society. Stories about that kind of person are taken to be stories for everyone that everyone can relate to, whereas stories about anyone who is gay, bi, trans, (female, non-white, non-western, and non-Christian) are taken to be stories that are A. about that specific minority and B. only of interest to people of that specific minority. It's the reason they made Patch Adams straight in the movie of the same name, when the real world Patch Adams was actually gay. The producers assumed that if they'd been true to the historical person, audiences would think it was a gay movie, about a gay man, being gay, not a medical student with unconventional approaches to being a doctor. They feared that the important message of the movie would be lost. That's understandable, but the result is LGBT erasure, which disenfranchises us and I have a real problem with that. Society needs to get over its stupid hangups and recognise that some people are LGBT and sometimes we have important contributions to make to society. That's the point I'm making; exclusion of LGBT is essentially the same as erasure of LGBT. I know that is not usually the intent, but it is the result. And that's not fucking cool when you're the one being erased.

    Ok dude you seriously need to chill, look we get you care about the game and that's fine (heck we are even ok with people who like the game as long as they give reasoning behind their like for the thing). But posting on a forum ideas to "fix" the worst game in the series, the game that nearly killed the franchise, and not expecting a reaction? Come on man. Also where are these jerkass comments? I only see people responding to your ideas and giving reasons as to why they wouldn't really do much. Heck SEGA have given up on his game.
    I get wanting to play all the games dude, good on your for your dedication, but even if the game was remade there would still be a plethora of games you wouldn't be able to play without the right system. Also who ever said that? It's not the 90's anymore, that rivalry finished over a decade ago.

    I don't know what you are talking about, the Nintendo consoles have had more exclusives than the other consoles, SA2:battle, SA:DX, the advance series, the rush series, Chronicles, the storybook series, the Olympic Games series,Colours, lost world and now the newest Boom games too, sure we have missed what...3 games, the others have missed plenty more than that.

    All of those games are solid in their own right (apart from maybe 06) and only had some slight poor design choices behind then, heck unleashed paved the way for the acclaimed boost series, also I think it is highly offensive to think Colours was only a success for its power ups which work practically nothing like Mario ones at all.

    You aren't alone with wanting that buddy, read almost any other thread on this part of the forum and it'll be full of people wanting other characters to be playable, it's not a rare complaint, nor is it a rare one

    That is a sweeping statement if I ever saw one dude. Most people on this forum aren't made of money either with many ( like myself) only owning one console, I personally do not own unleashed or gens and have only played them around a friends or my brothers. Infact this forum is mostly Nintendo users. I get your upset but let's try to keep our emotions in check?

    That article is nothing new and was made to mostly get page views, sonic is the industries punching bag and always will be likely unless another franchise crashes and burns harder, which is unlikely. Don't let it get to you dude.

    EVERY game in the sonic series has fans, heck I'd say the adventure series is probably one of the ones that has the most fans, it hasn't aged particularly well but at its core it's good and solid. 06 is the only one without many fans but (as you can probably see from this topic) there are a select few. There isn't a "greatest game" it will change from person to person some say Generations, some say Adventure, some even say 06, it's subjective. I don't know what game could bring sonic out of the rut, no one does all we can do is hope and pray that sonic team don't make anymore stupid decisions. Also come on dude, were all playing Mario Kart 8 all day

    But regardless sonic 06 remade won't get Sonic out of this rut, it'll more than likely so more harm than good.

    So your solution is to ... Make an entirely different game? That's hardly fixing it. This game cannot be fixed, sure the controls and such could be patched (they won't) but the characters and story is too much of a mess to fix without rewriting completely thus they would probably not waste their time making an entirely different game. Infact in order to be made successful it would need to be entirely different, different enough that people wouldn't see it as a remake or a fix. So it's pointless really.

    Wait...
     
    Now '06 defenders/apologists are scapegoating SatSR for '06's problems even though SatSR isn't culpable in any way, shape or form for them?
     
    That's a new one to me. It comes-off to me as about as desperate as citing the design issues of better received Sonic games in order to make '06 look less bad in comparison.
