  1. SGB is doing a Sonic Colors LP. I wonder how many times over it they'll reference the sudden turning against the game people have been doing, somewhat akin to the adventure series turn (Though not as severe a reception turn). I believe it was briefly mentioned in the Unleashed LP, and in the comment section quite a bit.

    Now it's gonna be full throttle if the early comments aren't already a little preview. Though some are silly what with "Ruined the series"  comments which as someone who doesn't like Colors much at all would call BS on.

      Colours is an perfectly okay game, it’s just that it signifies the start of Morio Kishimoto’s reign on Sonic game design.

      People are too harsh on the game.

      Colours's biggest sins aren't what it did, its biggest sins are what it caused.

      People haven't turned on Colours. As @Polkadi~☆ and @Vertical Snoop [D.K.] said, Colours set up the precedent for what Sonic games have been ever since. It was the first 3D Sonic game without any of the major, glaring flaws that were present all the way from SA1 to Unleashed. SA1 has too many gameplay styles that aren't fun, 06 is a buggy mess, there were a load of awful stories... You can criticise all of those games fairly easily because they get so much wrong on the surface and it's only worse as you go deeper. Colours is different, because of the surface it gets so much right. It goes back to a straightforward plot, fantasy worlds, A to B Sonic gameplay, no gameplay changing gimmicks (the Wisps are not in the same category as the Werehog or anything else), it's stable and relatively bug free... The list goes on. Colours doesn't have all of the bad stuff that came before it. That's where it's praise comes from. The criticism that Colours seems to get now is the result of the series not taking any steps forwards since then. Colours is far from perfect, and sadly the series has barely seen any refinement or progress since then. A slew of new problems have been introduced from and since Colours. 

      Colours is inoffensive, acceptable, okay, playable etc. It is not a bad game. Generations was a small step forward in some regards, but I'll still argue that it isn't great either. It's better than Colours which wasn't as offensive as what came before. The bar was set very low. After Generations we've seen Lost World (an ill-fated and poorly-executed attempt at something new), Boom (a disaster that matters even if you want to refer to it as a spin off) and Forces (a game that took the worst of Colours and Generations to make something shoddy).

      Anyone claiming that people have "turned" on Colours is being pretty disingenuous. Colours (and Generations too I guess) used to look like the series dropping all the shit and finding something good. But it hindsight it looks like the series swapping one pile of shit for another.

      People are starting to dislike Colours?!

      It's my favourite game in the series but I suppose I can see some reasons why people wouldn't like it as much as I do...

      It's really after Sonic Forces where people were beginning to reevaluate Sonic Colors as a whole. It's not even close to the Adventure series turn around, but it became more common. It's still generally liked overall though.
