Honestly I just wish some of the controls were refined a little. Maybe make some more open levels, no more 2D, make bosses actually fun and not bosses you will kill in 2 hits. No more wisp and maybe keep parkour in but that's the only thing in terms of "Gimmicks" I would be fine with.
My favorite video game series: Kirby. Least favorite game: Athena (NES)
My favorite anime: Sailor Moon

LMAO how frighteningly accurate
Sonic 3 and Knuckles is still and always will be the best game of all time.

lol. "Let's strawman completely different opinions of different sections of the franchise because we can't be bothered to see the fandom as individuals."

It's Sega's fault for splitting the fanbase so badly to begin with.

-Oh look! Sonic can wield a sword!
-Oh look! Sonic can turn into a werewolf!
-Oh look! Sonic can use Mario-styled powerups!
-Oh look! You can play as Classic Sonic!
-Oh look! We changed the controls so you can do parkour on cylinder platforms!
-Oh look! He carelessly handed over Sonic's licenses to a company who completely redesigned the characters!
-Oh look! Sonic's back to being edgy again!

They keep changing the premise, controls, settings, and personalities around the slightest of complaints thinking at this point they could make a game to satisfy everyone.

It's already been proven thirty years ago via spaghetti sauce that it's impossible to do that. Some people like their sauce spicy, others chunky, others with mushrooms, and others with meat chunks. Carelessly making a sauce that's spicy, chunky, with both mushrooms and meat chunks is only going to satisfy a very small niche.

In the course of just over ten years. Sonic's world was filled with anime-styled humans, realistic humans, and cartoony humans, and back to no humans except Eggman. The enemy designs went from military mechs, to gritty sci-fi aliens, to final fantasy-styled gods, to cartoony dark creatures, to Mario-styled enemies, and now we have generic untextured egg robots.

The fanbase isn't picky, just divided. Sega's just messy and wants to satisfy everyone, instead of finding a focused structure for Sonic. They can't stick with a formula to improve. Each new idea is presented in their most unpolished form, but they never get more than three games to flesh the mechanics out.

Finally, someone who knows what they're f***ing talking about with this fanbase.

It's basically Mario Galaxy mixed with Sonic.

I mean Sonic '06 - now that's an actual bad game. Sonic Lost Worlds is great and fun.


its fine if you enjoyed it but calling those reviews BS just because you dissagreed with them is silly.

complaints generally ranged from the controls to the level design, the latter which would repeat large chunks and a late game world was largely made of re used assets and i dont know what the heck was going on with sky road 3.

i did end up enjoying it quite a bit more than the 3ds version though (and generations 3ds)

this feels very much the case when it comes to opinions on the sonic games, people will say that sonic fans dont know what they want, when fans are clear what they want, just that not everyone wants the same thing.

with forces it was an odd case, in that they were using a formula which had worked before but the execution was off, at least in regards to the sonic and classic stages.

it's weird how people complain about the fanbase not liking when sega gives them, even if they ask for it, as if it's the fans' fault and not just sega being f***ing morons and constantly misinterpreting complains
when people wanted the series to become 2d, they wanted it to be actually good 2d with good level design, not the half-baked clunky messes we've been getting

plus different chunks of the fanbase have different tastes which adds to some annoyance, but games like mania are generally well-received which only proves that making an actually good game with a timeless and wide appeal is something that's actually good for the series
