    People calling SA2 "melodramatic" only proves to me just how much the Sonic fandom has an issue with being extremely reductive in their mindset, like if anything is even REMOTELY dark or not just a pure jokefest at this point, it's "melodramatic".
    I mean ffs, the large majority of the story is about as close to a typical action plot as you can get with Sonic cheesiness thrown in, and yet people feel such a need to pretend it was this horrible angstfest when even in the final act there was barely anything of the sort.
    This is particularly why I find myself unable to take the large majority of dark and edgy criticisms seriously anymore, not just simply because it's almost always the same set of criticisms that everyone has trotted out over the decade, but because frankly it's gotten to the point that for every legit one about things like 06, Shadow (the game), and Forces, there's also bullshit like this that shows that people just only want to stifle any attempt to create anything remotely different from THEIR preferences, and believe that they're the gatekeepers of the franchise even as their gatekeeping actively causes more problems than it fixes.
    EDIT: And before someone comes strutting in and accusing me of not liking lighter fare, I DO....when it's DONE WELL. But the lighter fare that people love to pretend is superior simply by being lighter fare has made many of the same mistakes that the darker stuff has in the past, and arguably added in even more of it's own obnoxious mistakes and flaws in the process.

    Out of all the Sonic plots we've gotten, I think Unleashed is my favorite. It's simple, charming, and there's a decent balance of comedy, and the game had some the closest moments to legitimately heartfelt character interaction. Even when things hit the fan, it didn't get too overly melodramatic compared to something like SA2 or 06. As a cherry on top, we actually see Sonic and Chip hanging out and being friends and just generally having a good time together. Can't really say that about most Sonic games where his friends play a role in the story when I think of it, except for Battle or Team Sonic Racing kinda.

    I find it sad that most people only think some sonic stories are good by "Sonic's standards". I'm one to believe that most sonic storylines have interesting plots that make going through the to see the plot unfold more worth watching, as well as having some pretty good jokes that don't overstay their welcome, unlike the meta era. hell some sonic stories have pretty good themes in certain cutscenes.

    looking back, there were a lot of things I kinda forced myself to agree with, like when I said the "mechs control like ass" which, I don't really agree with (hell I never agreed with it at all). I just think that back then, I needed to find something to complain about the mechs, since I actually really enjoy them all things considered, and I really didn't wanna come off as bias.
    anyways regarding how I think of the mech controls as a whole, the mechs don't control terribly, but they are a bit clunky, turning can be a bit of a hassle but nothing really game-breaking.

    I really enjoy the mechanics and regular battles in Sonic Battle's story mode,  but I would honestly have a lot more fun with it if the boss fights at the end of each campaign weren't godawful. seriously, most of them were utter chores to deal with, from knuckles having to fight 3 Gammas, to rouge having to fight sonic, tails AND knuckles, to the worst one imo, having to fight a souped-up Sonic and Shadow that can LITERALLY ONE-SHOT YOU, I swear they're borderline unbeatable. 
    it's honestly sad really, like I enjoy the mechanics, I enjoy the moves, and I really enjoy the story, but those boss fights... they ruin practically everything, I really wanna make that review on the game and all, but at this rate y'all probably won't see it until the end of summer vacation, if at all.

    I honestly don't know who convinced me that SA1 was a glitchy mess but I'm glad I stopped believing that notion. even if SA1 does have some technical problems, the gameplay makes up for it... at least 3/6's of it because Tails, Amy and Big weren't really the best, tails just being okay in terms of gameplay objective.

    A trend I've noticed with Sonic discussion in recent times is this constant reminder to "keep your hopes in check/don't get excited or you'll be disappointed".

    Is it just me that feels this concept of "being disappointed" is completely overblown? Like yeah nobody WANTS to be disappointed but I think people are too quick to shoot people down the moment they show any hint of enthusiasm or excitement for an upcoming thing.

    I'd rather be excited and if it turns out to not be what I hoped, well, that's a shame but it's video games, I'll just move onto something else.

    Honestly, part of what makes some SA2 stages so memorable isn't even just how they play, but also their context in the story. Like, there's literally no way you could take 8 minutes to finish Green Forest unless you're purposefully waiting for time to run out. But just knowing that there's this urgent, time-sensitive situation going on where Sonic has to save his friends before they blow to smithereens gives the level that much more impact. I hope we get moments like that in another Sonic game someday.

    I never understood why so many people wanted the Werehog to be replaced by knuckles. say what you will about the gameplay, but I thought the Werehog looked pretty cool. his fur texture was pretty good, the spikes on the sole of his shoes were neat, and the attack animations were really cool, stretchy arms and all. plus the idle animation was cute.
