  1. Sonic Colors was competent at what it tried to do which seemed impossible for Sonic Games at the time

     

    Nowadays people attack it for it's Influence on the series and Blame it for making SEGA Give up on ambitious Sonic Games  , but frankly I think Colours is Better than that Sonic 4 game which would have turned the series into Generic phoned in 2D Nostalgia Cash ins


  2. If we are going to attack Shadow for being a Sonic Clone then we might as well attack dozens  of the characters in this franchise 

    And Shadow's "Edgy Gothic" aesthetic is hardly any different than Sonic "Edgy Xtreme Skater" aesthetic or Knuckles "Jamaican Boxer" aesthetic , it's cheesy but this entire Franchise is meant to be cheesy , the fact that that aesthetic became a meme doesn't matter, 80's aesthetics  used to be a joke and then all of a sudden the internet decided it's cool again, who cares since Pop culture is fickle about what's cool and what's uncool

    Pft. yeah, I bet Rise of Lyric and Forces knocked us straight back to "keep making Sonic-only Back to the roots Games" ville.

    It would be pretty stupid for them to assume that Buddy or the 10 min Shadow DLC are the reason why Forces was panned


  4. I feel like Colors was a downgrade from Unleashed  , it removed the Werehog but at the same time replaced it with the Wisps who honestly weren't interesting just inoffensive, the Boost mechanics was heavily watered down and felt less dynamic and at the same time While Unleashed was a compromise between fans of "epic" stories and older fans who didn't like it, Colors picked a side between the two and it deepened the divide in the fanbase, not to mention that while The writing was inoffensive back then , once that style started being used in Lost world and Forces where it was completely out of place it led to a lot of hatred toward Colors for starting that trend 

     

    It saved us from Sonic 4 though , Sonic would be in a far worse place if that game didn't get outshined , the fact that Sonic 4 has a better Metacritic score than either Generations or Colors should tell you of how Fanatical Classic favouring Critics were at the time as they championed a mediocre

    Be the better person and keep being open minded in spite of that.

    Have a backbone of course, but people being close minded says a lot about them than it does you.

    As an added note, don’t stress yourself too much over those who can stop moaning about a decade old game ruining their lives for a few years.

    Meh, from what I have seen on other forums a lot of the people he is talking about are literally "Comic Books guy" tier, those kind of people deserve to be mocked and fought back against

    I didn't realize the games being "half" 2D meant they should be worth less...

    I thought it was standard practice that it simply being a shorter game "should" mean it costs less...

    Or something.

    I've got issues with the lack of real 3D gameplay in the series myself, but a game isn't inherently worth less just because it's 2D.

    I don't think 2D should cost less but  the  public perception is that since 2D games are cheaper to produce then they shouldn't cost as much as full 3D games, unless if they are of exceptional quality

     

    And the 2D gaming market is really oversaturated at this point, a lot of Nintendo fans even admit that they won't buy DKC/Kirby games because there are too many high quality indie 2D games that cost a half the price that those games do , and honestly Nintendo only gets away with high priced 2D games today because of their good will.

    Or because they want to make a platformer and the Boost formula doesn't exactly gel with 3D platforming.

    The problem is that they advertise the games as 3D and give them prices that are closer to the prices of full 3D games than 2D games 

    People don't mind this with Mario's 2.5D games because its Mario, people didn't mind this with Crash's trilogy because despite being 2.5D because it's three Games at once . But with The Sonic Boost games we get really short Games that are only half 3D yet are priced as much as fully 3D games that are longer and with a lot more content and often better gameplay. 

     

    And before you mention Colors and Generations, yes they also have those issues but opinions changed from 2010 to now, and platformers were in a much worse state at the time
