*Ahem* Yep, here it is, another topic on how the fanbase sucks, and how blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda. Let me ask you something, What do you think compels us (as a Fanbase) to point out the unessential flaws in Sonic? Like "Green Eyes" or "Modern Sucks" or even "Not 1:1 Genesis Physics, ruined forever". I thought the fanbase was behind all of this crying and raging at Sega about these non essential things, but after the release of Generations, many folks have made it clear that we are still on this subject. Is it because of the general public's idea that "Sonic is Dead" that we have started to feel more resentful towards the blue hedgehog? Look at old gems like Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Advance. Both good games once considered to be the pinnacle of the series, has gotten mostly negative reception because they don't hold up to "today's standards". People say that they are doing it for the better, but it is in fact for the worst. Our Complaints have scared Sonic Team into thinking "Sonic only, Fast Speed, Light Stories, and No Friends" are what make a good sonic game. This is not true. Sonic games could have the greatest concept for a game ever, yet come out disappointing because it didn't feel like it had enough effort. The Developers would just piece together everything that a Sonic fan wants, and only think of the individual components, instead of thinking how the final product will turn out because of these individual components. Sure it may come out as a great game, but it only shows off half off their potential, as the developers may have wanted to add new things, but were afraid to do so as it may have upset the fanbase. To put it softly, "Sonic Team's our bitch." They will do anything to please us, and won't try to change anything about the games, sonic, or us, as it may upset or anger the Fanbase.We need them as much as they need us. Without each other, both would fall apart. however many now think of it as "We don't need them, but they need us if they want to stay alive." To get back on topic though, is it because of the direction the series has taken, that makes us want to bash Sonic Team for trying new things and force them to go back to the classic formula, which is regarded as the only formula for sonic. Or is it because of the general public that makes us BAW, RAGE, and Overreact whenever something is amiss in the Sonic universe. Maybe some of these are legitimate complaints, but to overreact to a new statement made by Izuka every time he says something, is just somethin else. SSMB as a whole is just a tiny fraction compared to the entirety of the Fanbase. Say what you want, but you cannot deny the fact that: The Sonic Fanbase is a Trainwreck.
