    doctorbenMD got a reaction from Sephy in Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread   
    I'm probably in the minority, but, I actually feel a little better about the game from what was shown. Hard to describe why, and there's still some things I'm concerned about--and I'll admit I don't know the first thing about level design, physics, and a lot of other issues that many people have brought up in various threads. But I'm looking forward to it a little more than I was before now.

    Uhh.. is Sonic Team gonna be okay?
    I know the series will, but is the company behind them doing alright? Because I honestly don't know where the staff behind Unleashed - Generations are at. Are they working on other Sega games? Are they even still at the company?
    Wowee.

    Seconded--like, I get the glaringly obvious flaws with the game, but they aren't enough for me to enjoy it in an afternoon. It's Sonic the Hedgehog--not Citizen Kane.  I get that we were shown a lot of stuff that threw many of us through a loop, but it doesn't "undo" the potential fun the game might be. It doesn't appear to be a glitchfest--at worst it looks "uninspired" but you could see what the developers were TRYING to do. The big flaw was how much it was being pushed as a some sort of "Sonic game-changer." Whether or not it actually is remains to be seen based on actual numbers.
    If this was a $60 game, I'd be having a different conversation. It'd be a game that would be held up to the same standards as a full-priced title like Zelda or Mario. But it's $40 (and even 20% cheaper on Amazon Prime or BB GCU)--not a price that will break me and (hopefully, from what I've seen) not a game that will upset me (there's enough of that in life).

    Honestly, I think the amount of backlash this game is getting is a tad ridiculous. Some people are acting like it's the end of the world. If you don't like and are disappointed, that is fine. If you love it, that is fine too. The thing is, it feels like this is a really bad case of fans vs fans right now. There are those who love and those who loathe this game and they are being so passionate, it almost feels like they are at each others throats about it. At least, lurking all 78 pages of this spoiler page has shown me that. From what I seen, I don't see why it's so wrong for casuals/fans to love this? That first streamer who says he hasn't played a Sonic game since Sonic
     Adventure 1, he seemed to be having a blast. Some others watching said it looked really cool.

    I know how defensive some Sonic fans gets, and how much they want it to improve. But saying "I hope it flops and does horrible in sales" is not going to make it better. If they lose tons of sales and have to let go of even more workers at Sega/Sonic Team. That won't be good. How will we get more games then if they eventually keep firing more and more and then go bankrupt and we get no more Sonic games? The thing to do here is give them good criticism and hope they listen. Not try and hope it fails, because that could bring down the whole ship.

    Just want to make it perfectly clear here: posting of the Sonic cycle - in any way, shape or form - will get you a swift suspension. You might think you're being funny, but you're being an asshole. This is also mentioned in my previous posts regarding Forces and in the pinned rules topic in this forum.
    In addition, I'd like to thank those of you who are sending in reports. This is a very busy time for us and the help is appreciated. We're hoping to keep the atmosphere under control despite the varied reception of Forces so far among the fanbase.

    Accusing people who disagree with you of blind hate instead of being able to acknowledge actual criticism is pretty shitty, dude.

    I love this idea, and now I want to play a Silver game where he fucks up Sonic's timeline.

    Honestly, just make Silver a Time Cop or something similar. And I don't mean basically make him one. Actually make him one. As in, part of a group or organization. Kinda like Legends of Tomorrow.

    I really cannot stand Roger Craig Smith--like, for anything he does. Every voice he does it feels like he's trying to over-stress himself to make him sound more heroic. I've never had this issue with a VA before. He sticks out like a sore thumb and takes me out of everything I'm watching.
    Other than that, Silver and Eggman sounded great. Knuckles was a little off.

    OK, the fact that they're constantly showing off the same two levels is indeed disappointing and even worrying and generally does not bode well, but no need to keep on this silly track of claiming that it will literally just be those two levels, @pppp. It may be a joke, but it's still a drag on the discussion. You can justly complain about the game's marketing and express worries about the game's size without resorting to this distracting tactic. It's not helping your case.

    Joke Response:
    Hogfather, you should know better then to dishonor the oldest, most noble and almost only rule of the GHZ subforum
    Real Response:
    The reason these topics have traditionally been banned is the discussion is done to death, and outside of petty name calling and shit slinging over whether or not game X is actually the real SA3, these discussions are often circular, blood pressure raising exercises in semantics. It's pleasing to see that the first 4 pages of this topic were mostly civil but I think it's now run it's course.
    Hogfather, Mayor D, really disappointed to see you in here antagonizing members and derailing discussion- as a member of the staff and representative of the site you really need to do better than this.
