    Sounds like you have 90s bias.

    I see where you're coming from but I feel that's only the case because Nintendo rarely ever uses these traits of his to begin with. These moments of character rarely ever take place so there's never really a chance for it to even come into question. Most of the time he serves as the foil to Mario and nothing more.
    Eggman, on the other hand, has been given much more of a personality and screen time in one game than Bowser has had across the entirety of the main series. To me, Eggman is much more fleshed out of a character to Bowser who is the text book example villain in 99% of cases (I can't speak to how he is in the rpgs as I haven't played through a majority of them).
    It's like comparing a light bulb (Bowser) to a neon sign (Eggman). They both get the job done in their respective cases and share a similar goal, but one clearly has more thought put into it. Though, the thing is while one is so simple that it can be made to fit in a multitude of situations, the other is sometimes simply out of place.

    Boom Eggman managed to get me weary of Pollock's VA. All those "hip" and meme-centric lines he had to read just made me sick. ("Snooping as usual", "On fleek?" Seriously writers?)

    Maybe it's because I find the way that game eggman works more fascinating. He wants what we all want on the most human level, attention and compassion. The funny part though is how fucking low he goes to get these things, as enslaving people and world domination in his mind is the easiest way to get attention and love.
    this is why I like AoStH Robotnik the most, he does really lowdown things just for his goal, which is wanting attention. He's evil, but not in the boring way of SatAM or Archie. When he had the power of life itself and turned into a god, the first thing he did was to have people pay attention to him and he was happy for it. I'm rambling now I guess, but I just find Boom Eggman way too unambitious for my liking.

    Honestly, this is all the stuff that makes me not like Boom Eggman at all.

    @Austroid I've never liked the Boom portrayal of Eggman either, it feels very generic to me, pretty much every villain does something like that now. It just doesn't fit Eggman.

    Well gee... and here I am avoiding Forces spoilers like the plague, until there's more stuff to play on Switch.
    I'm fine with them going with "he's a villain because he's evil!" route. Because I don't care for the "misunderstood grump that tries to be evil" Boom emulates. I never really needed Eggman to have a sympathetic side; but those moments in SA2 and Sonic X were nice touches.
    I guess in short: I like a wacky, egg-shaped madman for being a wacky, egg-shaped madman!

    I've never liked Boom!Eggman much at all. He's an example of when the goofiness is taken way too far and he's just a complete pushover. I guess it works for the sitcom style of Boom (which I hate as well) but it does nothing for me. It's the completely wrong way of making a goofy Eggman imo.

    It'd be a lesser point for me if it was compared to AoSTH to be honest. I don't have any memories of seeing that show (or any of the 90's shows outside of Pokemon) but I tried to watch at least an episode of it. I hate when Eggman is just a comical punching bag that also cries (in one episode at least). I hate how abstract the environements are there. I find Sonic more of a "action hero", not a sitcom kind of guy. That's why I hate Colors' dialogue and don't really like Lost World because of how they reminded me of comedy cartoons and not action cartoons.

    Austroid got a reaction from Dr. Mechano in Wonder if we'll see any citizens who actually like the Eggman Empire.   
    That's something I'd like Sega to take from the comics, where there are some Mobians (for lack of a better term) who side with Eggman and feel that he's doing a service for the world by "cleansing" it.

    That would actually be interesting, so of course we won't.
