    Cynical as you may be, you do raise some good points. That said, to be fair....I'd argue the BDSP case was people expecting at the very least, the level of quality that Pokemon remakes had gotten to that point. I don't think it's gonna be awful, but BDSP is definitely a departure from the normal route, especially given its outsourcing.
    Wouldn't really blame the fans for that one.

    My mum's just had her first dose of vaccination today. Being the second oldest in the household, I think I'm the next who's due to have one, but I'm still not sure yet when that'll be.

    Sonic 1 and Sonic CD (still have both, Sega CD gave up the ghost a long time ago though). One of my first memories is being harassed by a wasp while trying to play Sonic 1. When I was about 5 or six the Genesis seemingly died (in reality it was just a bad power cable, but good luck getting that replaced in the early 2000s with no internet available). So we got a PS1 to replace it, got Crash 2 and 3 for Christmas.
       I didn't see Sonic again till I got a PS2. Sonic Heroes and Sonic Mega Collection were two of the first games I got for it. Good times, although with no Internet to help with it I did end up getting victimized by the Barrel of Doom. I knew Sonic 3 and Knuckles was a thing because that collection has the manuals but I didn't know it was an unlockable.

    Gran Turismo 4.
    PlayStation 2 was the hottest thing on the block, especially with this high quality racing simulator now in stores. My father wanted to get into that action, but my mother saw an opportunity and said that I could play it too, because kids love video games.
    At first, I used my father as a test dummy for the game without playing it myself, as I didn't know what a video game was yet. Eventually, I grew brave enough to wrestle with this new technology myself, and got into games that way.
    I started playing it again recently, and it's so much fun still. I mainly played arcade mode as a kid, but it's even more fun now that I'm old enough to understand how the game works.

    SoulEdge/SoulBlade was the first game I ever played. Not entirely by choice, though, since I was very young at the time.
    I think the first game I legitimately chose to play was either Spyro 1 or Rugrats: Search for Reptar.

    NegaMix got a reaction from Strickerx5 in If I was looking for a good Spider-Man show, what would be the top pick?   
    Spectacular Spider-Man is the one I'd recommend above all. I don't really recall enough of the 90's show to say if it holds up entirely, and the Disney shows (Ultimate and 2017) are pretty mediocre at best.

    Zero is arguably the best game in the series to this day. Kiwami, despite being a remake of the first game, just winds up feeling like a less good, glorified expansion pack for it. I'd say 0.

    Kiwami was done after 0, meaning it has nods and a refined gameplay from that, so you better start with the latter.

    NegaMix reacted to Blue Blood in Every day I'm reminded that the Sonic fanbase is one of the most unfun places to be.   
    Real talk here, instead a sarcastic remark like I would usually make.
    Big, online communities tend to be pretty unfun to engage with after a while. When you're just on the peripheries or only dip your toes in every now and then they're alright, but the impersonal nature of everything online and all the different voices you're hearing make for an uncomfortable time. And you don't always realise it; you're so enthusiastic about/interested in the subject that you aren't consciously aware of all the noise that's constantly going on in the background.
    It happens with EVERY fandom. It's almost inarguably worse with Sonic because there are so many divided opinions and very few fans feel consistently satisfied with the series. And even those who do feel satisfied have to contend with the negative emotions that other people are experiencing. Two of the best times to be a Sonic were the announcements of Generations and later Mania; two games that sent almost the entire fandom into a frenzy of unmitigated excitement. But generally, yes, there's a strong undercurrent of dissatisfaction that makes the large community difficult to be a part of.
    I cope with it by being unrelentingly cynical and pessimistic. I find that to be quite cathartic, but the irony of fact that I'm spreading the very negativity I'm lamenting isn't lost of me either. The other way that I cope, and this took me years to learn, is just to distance myself from the stuff I'm not interested in our that I've exhausted. Most new Sonic-related threads on here I don't even read these days. I'm too jaded for it all. I've seen these discussions before, and I've learned to just not care.
    Of course the very best thing you can do is talk Sonic with a smaller group. Like, just a couple of people for your regular Sonic talks. Don't bother with Discord groups or whatever. Smaller groups are so much more digestible. Just my two cents

    At least you're enjoying baking in general.

    Trying not to rush through it, since I kind of had a feeling it was going to be a shorter game, but It's been hard to put down, just like the first one.
