    Then no one should care about Tangle or Whisper because they’re not from the games.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    If people don’t like the Freedom Fighters, that fine. But the problem I have with this is that mindset has made the games so lackluster to me. It’s real easy to take that answer and turn it into: ”I want to see Sonic do shit, who are these other characters, I do not care for them”. This has me more concerned when people say the comics should me more like the games and can’t help but think of Classic nostalgia pandering and everyone else sitting around for Sonic to save them instead of being active in the plot. Even if I didn’t like the FF I wouldn’t demand that they go away because it makes me no better than the critics do demanded that the games should only be about Sonic and Eggman. Also there’s only so much you can do with the game cast alone where it’s gonna come to a point where comic-original characters are going to come forth whether people like it or not. Also I find it funny when people say fans only care about characters from the games when original creations like Tangle and Whisper got tons of love via fanart.
  3. I may not like games such as Colors or Generations with the over reliance on 2D sections and boost to win but I wouldn’t call the games “broken”. As much as I complain about the 2D/3D hybrid it’s not the biggest deal breaker for me. Hell I would had bought Forces if instead of Classic Sonic and the create-your-own they finally got at least 2 non Sonic characters playable from the start of the game and not some last minute DLC. And those people can bitch all they want because I’m tired of the bland monotony that came from the cast’s exclusion.
  4. I’ve seen people use it to defend the 2D sections in the “3D” games hence why I brought it up.
  5. It’s been over a decade now. They can’t keep falling back on the “we can’t get Sonic right” excuse. The longer people use it as to write off why Sonic can’t have a game that’s actually plays in 3D without being dependent on 2D sections, have characters that aren’t just another form of Sonic (Classic Sonic in Forces) or something the player has to fill in themselves as opposed to the various characters that’s been benched since Unleashed, the more pathetic it looks on SEGA. If I want to play as Knuckles, Tails or any of the characters that aren’t Sonic in a 3D game, I’m not stop asking for it because that’s what I want from games and the games haven’t been enjoyable when everyone became Sonic’s ass kissers who can’t do a damn thing without him.

    And piss off the fans who have been following the Freedom Fighters? How is this any different than critics of the games campaigning everyone but Sonic should be cut out? Why is it impossible to balance time or mix the two groups of characters together?

    How does it not make sense? I’ve seen arguments about the characters who have originated from the comics are taking away screen time from characters who originated from the games. Even as someone who prefer the game characters, I find that to be a giant load because reading through the Archie series pre and post Genesis Wave I found the screen time balanced between the two groups. Sure the brand has changed over the years but it doesn’t mean I don’t see it as a ridiculous argument.

    I’ll never understand the argument of the Freedom Fighters stealing the spotlight from the game characters, given how the FF were in the comic from the start.
  9. I had more fun with Sonic Chronicles than I did with any games since Colors. Calling Generations (PS3/360 verisons) “the best recent 3D game” is a huge lie given you spend more than half the game in 2D.

    Does Sonic Forces have you awaiting the next 3D game announcement?

    There’s no reason a Sonic game can’t have good gameplay and a plot that’s more than basic. Even when the gameplay is “good” it doesn’t save Generations from being my least favorite Sonic game when everything else around it is lackluster to me.

    Does Sonic Forces have you awaiting the next 3D game announcement?

    Yeah I thought about it, and I'm done with "simple" Sonic games. I still want the 3D games to be more than "simple". Because the games being nothing more than Sonic fighting Eggman where everyone else kisses his ass doesn't work for me. There are fans who actually enjoy the complex plots that don't ride on genesis nostalgia, who want to see 3D games contain actual 3D gameplay that doesn't cling on to 2D sections for half of the time and have the various characters actually do something instead of going gaga every time Sonic does a lap in Green Hill Zone. If people just want simple, Mania exists. You may be okay with it, but that won't stop fans for wanting more than that. Which is why I would like it where the games goes into separate branch series so people can choose what appeals to them and maybe stop fighting each other what Sonic "should" be.

    Then they should stop calling them 3D games if they continue to cling on to 2D nostalgia like a crutch. Then play the Kirby games then. There's more than one way for Sonic to be "fun". For some people, the not-so-simple plots and character interactions are what made people into Sonic fans to begin with. Honestly I'd be fine if the series had 2 braches: One with the simple 2D nostalgia trips like Mania and another where it's actual 3D gameplay and plots that go beyond stop Eggman for the hundredth time.

    I know there won't be any new characters for Year 2 but what of villains do you expect from the series. I mean they can't keep fighting Eggman and Metal Sonic forever which was another thing I liked about the Archie run.

    The thing is, it does come off as you insulting the people who like the game when you say "I thought for sure by now we'd all grown up and realized how stupid and poorly written that was." As if fans who actually enjoy the story are immature for liking it. Also can we talk about "the writing has never been good" argument? Every time someone says that it's an invitation for Sonic Team to not try to improve in that department

    "Oh my god! People still like a game that I hate. They must all conform to my opinions alone." This is a big factor for why the fandom is so fractured. If people can still enjoy games whether it's Sonic Adventure 2, 06, Lost World or even Boom, why you do have to be a douche to them? Seriously SA2 wasn't as "dark" as people make it out to be. Sure it had some serious moments but it wasn't at the same level as Sin City or Watchmen.

    Vector the Crocodile shows up with the Chaotix in #5-6

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    So far the series has been showcasing him going to a location and fight badniks. He doesn’t pull random skills out of his ass and the other characters actually do something. Amy did had ask him to come back to the resistance in #2 but at least they have been shown to be able to take care of themselves in action and they’re not in desperate need of Sonic like they were in Forces or Generations.

    So you want Sonic to be a Gary Stu who can do everything under the sun while everyone else be helpless cheerleaders who can only exist to have fangasms over how awesome Sonic is everytime he goes to the bathroom. Just because Sonic’s name is in the title, it doesn’t mean we can’t give a damn about anyone else because I got sick of that crap mindset from the games.

    What is the future for Modern Sonic?

    I don’t want Modern Sonic to die off for even more Classic pandering but I’m not fond of the current state of the games. I just want the games to have actual 3D and have the characters in the games not act like helpless doormats who can’t do anything without Sonic.

    Amy in #2 and Rouge in #6 were highlights for me.

    I'm getting sick of the main four

    A more accurate comparison would be fans getting sick of Power Rangers doing nothing but glorify how amazing Mighty Morphin was. Or how the Pokemon games and their constant call backs to Kanto in recent years.

    @PublicEnemy1 I’m enjoying the book just fine but I understand your concerns regarding characters and world building. You also bring up something that I feel the Archie series did well; having subplots that move the series forward as much as whatever Sonic was doing at the moment. Hopefully we get more meaningful interactions between the other characters and locations with actual names in the future.

    Is/was Sonic getting the Goku treatment?

    My main reason I’ve stopped playing the games and the moment Classic Sonic showed up in the Forces trailer I knew they were going down that route again.

    For me it’s more of getting sick of Sonic, Tails and Eggman since it’s pretty much the same dynamic in the games for years. Sonic being the only playable character who gives less of a crap about what’s going on around him, Tails has become a spineless brown noser for Sonic, and Eggman villain status prior to Forces has fallen to Team Rocket Trio of threatening. I know the OP brought up Knuckles and Amy but they haven't been treated any better than anyone else given they can’t do anything aside from waiting for Sonic to save them and worship the ground he walks on when he does. Also just because they’re the “core” cast doesn’t mean that things won’t get dull when they keep using the same formula. Especially when that formula requires 99% cast to act like helpless infants instead of acting like the pro-active individuals that can take care of themselves.
