    Ah, true. Very true statement. They are better than MK in a lot of senses. But they are SEGA All-Stars.

    It also depends on how faithful you want the remake to be. Spyro, Crash, and Shadow of the Collosus remakes stay 1 to 1 with the originals outside of the presentation to the point where I hesitate to even call them remakes, whereas something like the Resident Evil 2 remake changes basically everything outside of the basic premise, and this is reflected in development time (Like you said 3 spyro games in 1 1/2 years, vs Resident Evil 2 Remake taking 3-4 years),

    Spyro, Crash and SOTC are still more proper of a remake though- they polish the controls and improved the music and graphics while still keeping the core game intact, level design gimmicks and everything.
    The likes of RE2Remake and FF7 Remake are less so remakes and more so COMPLETE REIMAGININGS. Reimagining is a word that needs to be used more in these big scale "remakes"- that's literally what they are
    The entire game was changed besides the premise and story, that is anything but a remake

    and resident evil 3 took like a year so they kinda remade both in the same time, sure depends how far they want to distance it, i doubt they redo all the level design and such becuase people liked the game with some exceptions like that fishing stuff lol.

    Forces crapped out level design really fast with a bunch of noobs at the helm. Putting more time into it is exactly what was needed. I don't think the basic mechanics/ideas of forces were really bad (aside from Classic Sonic making zero sense), and I'd still rather play that than lost world, the non-speed Adventure levels, or werehog.

    Also I got a bad feeling Taxman is doing something else that isn't Sonic these days. Cannonhead definitely is. Not sure Sega really payed them proportional to the amount of success Mania had.

    No need for quality, just have Jim Carrey voice Eggman and it will sell 5 million copies at least.

    Can't chalk it up to newbies - Breath of the Wild brought on a bunch of newbies to bring something new to the game that oldbie developers got too used to, and worked out to commercial success. It's always been a horrible cycle of higher ups at SEGA giving the developers unrealistic release windows. If you watch enough development documentaries and read up on the development of Sonic games, it's a common theme, unfortunately.

    still waiting for the sonic team to cut to the chase and release a Sonic title that has absolutely no gameplay and is just a Crush 40 soundtrack

    Jim Carrey voicing Eggman and quality are the same thing, though. :lol:

    Sonic games have always been It's so bad It's good type of games, enjoyable because of nostalgia It'll be interesting what they come up with for next gen sonic on the ps5 and xbox series x. :rofl:

    I don't expect one personally. Sonic Mania was for the most part a love letter to the series - made by fans, for fans, and with a lot of reused/reworked assets from previous games. Making a second one would be kinda moot, since everything that could be covered was already covered in the first one (not to mention super-expensive too, since devs would have to create most of the assets from scratch).

    Sonic 1-3 (and CD if we're reaching further) were genuinely fantastic platformers, arguably among the best from 16-bit era. The fact that there's still a massive speedrunning and romhacking community behind those kinda proves that it's not "just nostalgia over some "bad" games".

    Just lend Sonic to Nintendo for a game or two and see the masterpiece they will come up with.
