I guess not.
I guess not.
I guess not.
I think in order to play this with your hands, you need a shrink ray.
I’m certain they didn’t think this one through, as they never think anything through these days.
Yeah but still. I really sick of their stupid nostalgia pandering.
Sonic Generations is responsible for all of this.
If it wasn't for Sonic Generations, Sega wouldn't have been inspired to use Classic Sonic currently, and that includes Sonic Mania.
Still, after Sonic Generations, Sega started to nostalgia pandering.
I'm just wondering if we should have a page about nostalgia pandering.
Sheev: Do it!
They are notorious for it, so wynaut?
I just added the Game Gear Micro blunder to their page, do you guys think that should be moved to the nostalgia pandering page when it is published?
Yeah, I really want to see a page about Nostalgia Pandering.
And Classic Sonic can be that page's main image. I hear he has become a symbol of Sega's needless nostalgia pandering, and is now divisive just like everything else Sonic related.
Also, they're constantly re-released their Mega Drive collections just about every platform, while ignoring most of the others such as Master System.
Mega Drive is overrated imo.
What is Sega's obsession with stuffing nostalgia into Sonic games like they're stuffing a turkey? Sonic Mania may have had a great reception, but that doesn't hide the fact it could have been better by making it more original with a greater story. They could have done something bigger that 2D Sonic games never had before.
They could've continued with the winning formula of Day levels in Unleashed.
I swear. Nostalgia is just like a huge market pandering for the franchise now. I certainly hope they realize nostalgia is not the answer, and will redeem themselves somehow like Sony did with Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. That was an awesome movie BTW, and I think it's the best Spider-Man film.
They have a GHZ fetish imao.
I got an idea to refresh the changes. Since Eggman has been the villian for far to long. How about they do a Sonic media to not to bring back Eggman and add a brand new threat?
I don't know. Eggman has been tossed aside by even bigger villains in previous Sonic games, and fans were just very excited that Eggman would be the main villain again in Sonic Forces. Dr. Eggman is a very well loved video game villain.
How about we make it a combat-styled game with solid combo elements?
Like taking the Werehog stages from Sonic Unleashed and making them more fast-paced?
What Sonic Team needs to do is to stop constantly coming up with gimmicks and focus on improving the aspects that people liked instead of constantly throwing new things that take focus away from what's supposed to be the main focus.
All the 3D Sonic games I played except Colors had the problem of too many alternate playstyles shoved in that take up too much of the game, like really Sonic makes less than a third of both Adventure games. Out of all the gimmicks and alternate playstyles that Sonic games keep putting out the Avatar in Forces was the only one I felt worked (as a concept at least).
Alternative gameplay styles actually a pretty good thing but if done right.
Sonic games rarely do it right, it's always either a watered down Sonic or a dumb gimmick that controls badly.
I see. (uhm no)
Tyrant, this is like saying "Sonic should stay in 2D", which is a generic and baseless excuse used by nostalgiatards.
In other words, alternative gameplay styles has nothing do with the game's quality.
Speaking of watered down Sonic and the gimmicks, this is affected by other factors like the physics and programming.
And also you missing many points, let me count it:
-Both Adventure games and Heroes are not aged well.
-Sonic '06 was released in unfinished state.
-Forces is just rushed and it affected by the awful physics.
The main problem is Sega, Tyrant. Not the games.
After the Sonic '06 disaster, they're started to play too safe, which that's why they're released generic and uninspired sonic games.
I'm still thinking alternative gameplay styles can done right in Sonic.
Because this franchise has potential but Sega never uses it. Instead they're make generic and uninspired games, as they're playing too safe.
Of course, I'm not talking about shoehorn too many playstyles. Instead, just adding new playstyles while keeping the main focus of the franchise.
True. True. I know. I justI got the idea from the page from TMNT on Greatest movies wiki.
Im just trying to figure out some creativity to come up with something new in Sonic games. Since it mostly reuses the formula and add so much Nostalgia.
They're pandered nostalgia so hard that point, that doesn't feel nostalgic anymore.
People already bored that nostalgia thing. Sonic Forces' failure clearly shows.
I don't know if Sonic Forces was a failure. I hear that it managed to sell more than a million copies, and success is usually determined by how many copies were sold. Shadow the Hedgehog was a negatively received game, but it managed to be a success by selling 2.06 million copies.
But it still lower than Sonic Mania.
I don't know for sure. I don't know exactly how many copies Forces sold, probably a million, but Mania so far has sold only one million. If people are saying Mania was a success for its copies sold, then Forces was a success, but probably not as much as Mania.
But Sonic Forces still got mixed results with critics.
Sonic Forces' Metacritic score is still lower than many Sonic games such as The Secret Rings.
Critic scores don't usually determine one's success. The success of something is usually determined by how well it does for the public. Even the stuff that is so incredibly bad have been successful. Like the live action Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. They're all bad, but did extremely well in the box office. Modern Family Guy is incredibly horrible, and yet it has the most ratings on the Fox network. Teen Titans Go! has a colossal hatebase, and yet it always has huge ratings, and it constantly fills up the TV schedule on Cartoon Network.
Except for The Road Chip.
"This is not that bad at all." isn't an excuse for (Modern) Sonic anymore.
Considering this is one of the main problems of the franchise.
I thought a sequel was planned but cancelled. Anyways cool.
Hey, what if Sega merge with Nintendo so they both can become very successful?
That way they will have better management.
And perhaps the next console that would come out of Nintendo after the Switch would be a collaboration between Nintendo and Sega and would probably have both brands on it.
That's wishful thinking of the most fictious kind.
I know, I know. It's just fun to imagine the possibilities sometimes.
Did something like this ever happened in the history of video games?
Namco merge with Bandai, remember? I looked it up.
I know these two companies but I didn't know they merged.
Well, they did. It became Bandai Namco now. A year ago. Or earlier this year.
Was Bandai even a video game company?
I also saw its mark on a few video games and maybe it produced the Wonderswan.
Well, it is mostly a toy company but it made a few unsuccessful consoles and the Tamagotchi, if you count that as a video game.
No, but it was close to one time. Sega wanted the Xbox to be Dreamcast compatible, that didn't go through but instead a bunch of Dreamcast game sequels came out on Xbox.
I remember we talked about this on the former Crappy Games Wiki. It really pained me to know about this failed project.
Well, yes. Remember Namco? They merge with Bandai to become Bandai Namco.
They did not make a collab console so doesn't count.
Including many Sega owned game development are cancellation for rest of the year
Including Geist Force for Sega Dreamcast, Because of the developer the launch titles did not going for released with Dreamcast prior are closing the production of Geist Force Project
Admitted with Netter Digital is nearly the CG animation works for done.
After this. I'll getting the adaptation my own project indie novel of Geist Force i was able to do professional writer.
