I know some people who had played Sonic since the Genesis and some of theme have played Sonic during the 3D era. No matter what the outcome is you can be sure they might be a lot of Sonic fans over this forums or not. Reason: Let's face it, Sonic the Hedgehog that the retros use to know and love is getting bad reputation from them! Sonic wasn't only about speed, how the mighty has fallen and now the only way this spiky blue freak can stay alive is being inside some very awful games like Sonic 06, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Sonic Shuffle. It doesn't matter what toxic waste SEGA spew at us, the newer generation will gabble it up like candy and realize that Sonic is cooler than way he is now. Some of us just quit playing Sonic games ever since the Dreamcast died, most of them still continue to play them till this day. I actually want to know which Sonic generation you have came from? The Genesis Era or The Dreamcast Era or Beyond (You know when the Dreamcast died and everything started to go down hill) Example: I'm from the Genesis Era, sadly. Ever since SEGA decided to make Sonic go into the 3D world, the level designs had started to become bland and lifeless to me. The only Sonic game I had played and enjoyed as far as this generation goes was Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Nintendo Wii. It was going into the right direction however, I can't believe till this day how lazy SEGA have gotten over the years with the mascot.
