Listen, no one likes Sonic anymore. When was the last good Sonic game? Whatever you're answer is, it's likely a terrible game too. Sonic isn't good, it's a memory you're holding onto that you need to let go of. Sega isn't capable of making a good Sonic game. It makes you wonder if Sonic was ever good in the first place. Chances are, it may not be,
The series is more popular with furries than normal people and that's a bad sign. The franchise has always stressed SPEEEEED over well-designed calculated gameplay and that's its anchor. These games will never be good, if you stop buying them, they'll stop making them.
Its embarrassing to keep anticipating these games only to be let down every time. Like a dog waiting for his long gone master to show up. It's not cute anymore and it's leaving poop everywhere. Not worth the disappointment.
