Please Sega, Don't ruin my franchise. (Poor Sonic. He's feeling sad that he's got some bad games. I mean, can you really blame the poor hedgehog?)

Honest Game Trailers

Back in the 90s, Sonic the Hedgehog was the mascot for the Sega Genesis, creating some of the best games for the system and helped grant the Genesis a fanbase. He also succeeded Alex Kidd as Sega's mascot when he was introduced in 1991 and has been the mascot of the company ever since. However, ever since Sega became a third party developer, Sonic the Hedgehog has seen a decline in quality due to Sega milking the franchise to death, and Shadow the Hedgehog and the rushed development of Sonic '06 generated this decline, resulting in a few very awful games, and some mediocre ones, with very inconsistent quality control, as well as leading Sonic to becoming little more than a laughingstock, however, games like Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations and Sonic Mania, have brought new light to the franchise. This also includes unofficial games (fan games, bootlegs) and ROM hacks.

It should be noted that there are still a lot more good Sonic games than bad and that not every modern Sonic game is terrible, though there are indeed some very notoriously bad games in the franchise.
