  1. I want a new Sonic Riders game and with NO gimmick controls. I enjoyed the first game pretty good.

    As a side note. The 2D opening animation was amazing to me.

      As in: no gravity control or motion sensor nonsense?

      Motion/Touch/VR/whatever other nonsense controls. Basically just want a normal button control game that most gamers expect.

      Sadly the Riders franchise is pretty much dead, Sonic & co. in cars is the new fad.

      Which is exactly why i wish they would do another Riders game instead. hahaa It might be currently dead but they can always bring it back. Hover-boards will always be far cooler then dull cars.

      As much as I liked Riders, what I'd really like to see is what Sonic R attempted to do: Sonic characters racing on foot. I still think it's the most unique and truest approach to the characters and I think there's potential in the concept. It could really put the drifting idea from Unleashed to good use for example.

      Regarding the "Sonic would obviously win so that concept is stupid" argument, well...Sonic 2 and 3 had 2 player versus racing, Sonic R was a thing, and Sonic Heroes had every character running as fast as Sonic, so it's not like they never had other characters being able to keep up with Sonic..

      @Tarnish Oh I would love another Sonic R too... But sadly it seems less likely then even another Riders game far as how SEGA's feeling on the idea goes... I think a on foot race series of racer games is a great idea personally and Sonic is a great fit for it.

      The first Riders definitely has its problems but I honestly like it more than virtually every other Millennium Sonic game. Riders ZG was a big disappointment for me with how they heavily simplified the gameplay in favor for the gravity mechanics, and I never bothered with Free Riders for obvious reasons. The fact that Free Riders reportedly brought the gameplay closer to the first game pains me more that it was compromised to be a gimmicky Kinect launch title, and we'll likely never get a fourth Riders with the current management.

      It's probably not a coincidence that while it was technically made by Sonic Team and bearing the ST name, the staff who developed the first Riders was actually what used to be Sega's former United Game Artists studio (who had recently been folded into the ST division).

      The next best thing to a Riders 4 IMO is a Boost game that borrows a lot of design principles from the first Riders (and Sonic R for that matter, which I also greatly like a lot)....but that would require a design team that actually cares enough about all three playstyles/games and adapting the Boost gameplay into a racer to begin with...

      I hope in 10-20 years, people are just as nostalgic for the art style used in riders' 2D intro as they are for "toei sonic" right now.

      why wait? i like the look of the game we got, but i don't blame people who wish the entire game was made in the style of the opening intro (presumably done via cel-shading).

      a new sonic anything in that style would be beautiful. we don't get many cel-shaded sonic games as it is (there's only, what, sonic shuffle and the 2D sprites in S4E1).

      I love the Sonic Riders 2D opening art style still today... If they could somehow remake that style for the main game itself... it would be a wonderful time to live in.

      Sonic Riders was the last Sonic game I actually enjoyed, so it's even more special for me for that reason.

      I still remember that the 1 stage demo they released actually contained all (or at least most) of the stages you could access with a hack/mod. Fun times.
