    You're making this post in a topic about bringing Sticks back. This point is a meaningless non-sequitor.

    We prefer people revive threads than make new ones on the same topic when they want to contribute to it.

    Tornado got a reaction from Indigo Rush in Was Sonic at any point the most popular video game franchise in the world?   
    In the US, Sega sold the farm on the 32X in the second half of 1994 and directed a lot of their advertising and development money towards that when it was dead by January 1995, at the expense of the base Genesis and the still selling Sega CD and even the Game Gear. They completely abandoned everything but the Saturn in the summer of 1995 when there was still a solid year and a half of life left in the console generation (moreso in Europe, where Nintendo never had the market dominance to begin with). Nintendo having a couple of years of mop-up duty made them win out in the end, but does not reflect the reality of the market as it was from 1991-1994 and especially 1992-1993; where Sega went from having maybe 5% of the market to being the market leader entirely at Nintendo's expense and entirely to Nintendo's surprise.

    Easily. It's hard to quantify 25 years later (especially when the final sales numbers of that console generation are so misleading); but Nintendo went from overwhelming market dominance the likes of which Sony wishes they could ever accomplish, from being synonymous with the word "videogame" for half a decade, to probably not even being first place in their home country (though the Super Famicom's early struggles weren't because of Sega). The entire market shifted to try and copy what Sega had done through their advertising and their games lineup, and Nintendo didn't start wresting control back away from Sega until Sega themselves started deliberately throwing it away at the end of 1994 (at which point it was too late for the both of them in the long run).
     
     
     
     
    Sonic was at the very forefront of that, the face of the company that had basically taken the videogame market away from Nintendo in the west and began the shift of the market away from Japan entirely; and there's no doubt in my mind that Sonic was the videogame property in the industry (that at the time was admittedly much smaller than it is today but nevertheless still extremely popular). It certainly was not Mario again until maybe SM64 came out; but even then I have my doubts in spite of how influential that game was due to how irrelevant the N64 was compared to the PSX.

    Yes. Especially when the President of the United States was still pushing that sentiment all the way up through the presidential debates, when hundreds of thousands of people had already died.
    Then go away.

    I'll add on to this:
    There's a difference between something like ResetEra spending days combing through your entire online history to see if you associate with someone they don't like so they can get the rest of their echo chamber frothing at the mouth to boycott anything you've ever done (or, as is equally common nowadays, someone on the right using the gullibility of those people to get someone on the left cancelled); and using your platform as a person some people recognize to spout idiotic conspiracy theories that have directly contributed to the idiot hive mind that is Trump supporters which have caused hundreds of thousands of people to die unnecessarily.

    Tornado got a reaction from Jovahexeon The Undyne in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (June 21st, 2019)   
    I mentioned this early in the thread, but I guess it bears repeating:
     
    CTR is not the only worthwhile entry in the entire genre just because at the time it was new it was somewhat more skill based than MK64. It is not so much better in quality that it is beyond comparison to any game ever made before or since. People have not been standing around looking up to the sky and pleading with God for the past twenty years after CTR originally released because they only had highly lauded games in the Mario Kart and ASR series to play and their life therefore had no meaning. Regardless of whether STOP HAVING FUN tryhards have/had put it on a pedestal that can nearly touch the moon, the overwhelming majority of "people" who bought CTR bought it because they had a Playstation and that was the best kart racer on the platform. It would behoove you to stop treating it as if it was an officially sanctioned E-Sports title (or whatever) beyond reproach and assuming that everyone else treats it the same way.
     
    I "advice" you to mind your own damn business. If Pawn had felt the need to say something to KHCast directly for his behavior in this thread beyond what he already said, he would have done so.
