    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Johnny Boy in What is it about Sonic that makes so many wish to disconnect him from non-Eggman humans?   
    There are some who are against having humans at all and there are some who are against the photorealistic Final Fantasy-esque humans. Humans are okay, as long as they look like the ones from Unleashed.
    As for the question itself, many of those people grew playing the classic games (where storytelling/worldbuilding was minimal) or watching the SATAM cartoon (where Robotnik and Snivley were the only humans).

    The witchcart and her witchcarters. They only managed to appear in a handheld game focusing on Tails.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from knuckles20 in Sonic's friends: Should they be defenseless without him or be capable of standing on their own two feet?   
    This is basically what I'm trying to get at. In past games (mainly the Sonic Adventure series), the supporting cast were capable and competent, but not in a way that drew attention away from Sonic.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from MainJP in Sonic Forces Avatar Sharing/Discussion Thread   
    Agreed. However, I do have one problem. The Sonic body shapes. I understand that would require more animation and designs, but an anthropomorphic dragon, gorilla, horse, deer, cow, or bear should not share the scrawny 3'3 body type. They should at least be the size of Vector.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from tailsBOOM! in Tails: between success and disservice of the character   
    All that character development in the Sonic Adventure game only to be unraveled. It's sad that the only form of media you get to see characters like Tails and Knuckles at their greatest potential is in comics and/or fanmade projects.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from THATGIRLSABRIYAZEFER in Details that people might forget, don't notice or just don't know about the Sonic Series   
    Former SEGA of America CEO, Tom Kalinske, knew that SEGA of Japan disagreed with the American division of the company making Sonic "soft". Apparently, Sonic was aggressive, had sharp teeth, and a busty girlfriend (whom I think is Madonna).
    This could explain the "edgy" shonen route the series was taking in the early 2000s.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Supah Berry in What are some missed opportunities in the Sonic franchise?   
    Yeah. Not to mention the limited number of species (compared to the concept art) and every species having the same body type. Seriously, a bear should not have Sonic's height and shape. Vector's is more appropriate.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from JustAfooL in Does Sonic really work as a game?   
    You want reasoning? Here it is. Sonic's gameplay is easily the first thing that comes to mind. For a platforming game, whether 2D or 3D, it's kinda hard, but not impossible, to control such fast paced gameplay. Second, the whole atmosphere feels more cartoonish, from the design, the characters, and setting. Hell, Sonic Team was using Felix the cat and Mickey Mouse for inspiration. Third, Sonic already has, or tries to have, a cinematic feel to it, which is why I think it would work as a cartoon.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Tarnish in The Boost: An Analysis   
    IMO, the Boost formula kinda defeats the purpose of Sonic's most notable trait: his species. The reason Sonic was chosen to be a hedgehog (an armadillo was another candidate) was because SEGA wanted to make a character based off an animal that could roll into a ball. They then wanted said character to be able to weaponize that ability at high speeds, and thus, a speedy blue hedgehog was born. However, the spin dash only makes sense when going down steep hillsides.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Splash the Otter in A question about the Classic characters   
    I don't see why not. However, given the current treatment of already established characters, it might be best to keep hands off characters like Mighty and Ray, at least until Sonic Team gets more competent developers. I would kill to see Fang, Bean, and Bark make an appearance in Modern games (No, I don't mean on a wanted poster).

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Tarnish in Why doesn't Sonic get more complaints about being Overpowered than Shadow   
    Can't we just agree that the "Holy Trinity Male Hedgehogs" are all overpowered? I mean SEGA has been trying to make them the Saiyans of the Sonic series.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Sonictrainer in New characters: Should they stay or should they go?   
    To me, it depends on three things: The character themselves, the plot, and the setting.
    These three things tend to go hand in hand, as a character needs to work or fit into the game. For more lighthearted and humorous games, characters like Orbot and Cubot are perfect. Not so much with darker toned games. That's where characters like Infinite (as much as I despise him) should come into play. Also, as others have stated, characters like Knuckles, Blaze, and Silver shouldn't be placed in a game for fanservice. Knuckles is tied to his duty of guarding the most powerful artifact in existence, Blaze is tasked with guarding the Sol Emeralds in another dimension, and Silver is the protector of the future. If SEGA wants to use these characters, they need to develop plots that will involve said characters, i.e. something threatens Angel Island or some wicked, Thanos-like being who wants to curb the population or whatever goes after the Master Emerald. The problem is that SEGA limits themselves. They've been focusing exclusively on Sonic and relying on short-term, forgettable gameplay and plot elements.

    This. Why is this so hard for SEGA to grasp? Two worlds? WTF kind of shit is that? It doesn't help that Angel Island takes place in both worlds. With the humans and animals co-existing, it creates a consistent setting. Add in how they came to be and you've worldbuilding taken care of.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Sonic Fan J in The chosen animals species   
    So much biodiversity out there and SEGA wants to make more hedgehogs. The whole point of Sonic being a hedgehog was to utilize rolling into a ball (an armadillo was also a candidate). How about a pangolin rival? So many opportunities for visually interesting characters.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Alexios31 in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)   
    Yes! He's going to look somewhat like a hedgehog!!
    I actually think it looks pretty neat! I mean, people are gonna trip, but I don't see why. It's a live action movie. They can't just use the models from the games in a live action movie. This isn't Roger Rabbit.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Rowl in Sonic Team should follow Marvel's example for a COHESIVE UNIVERSE   
    This. With Marvel, each character has their own story/movie to build up for a crossover. Sonic is the titular character. It would be different if the franchise was named something like Freedom Planet or whatever.

    Mountaindewandsprite got a reaction from Rowl in What are some missed opportunities in the Sonic franchise?   
    Unfortunately, this is very true. It is true for particular characters like Knuckles, Shadow, and Silver, who were an important focus for one or two games but now seem like characters that are forced into games for fanservice.
    Which is why I loved post-SGW Archie Sonic comics. They actually put more effort into the franchise than SEGA ever has.
