It was all going so well until Classic Sonic showed up. I mean... what? I've never been so disappointed to see Classic Sonic. And I can't believe I'm saying that. But holy crap, otherwise this looks totally exciting.

I have similar thoughts. I'm not too excited since we've already got Mania, and I know Classic Sonic will play better in Mania than in this game. Also, I wish we had some actual gameplay.

Yep, feelin' the same. I wonder what form the game'll take. It showed the sidescrolling modern style gameplay, and I dig that, but I'm not ecstatic about a return to the clunky modern-classic style.

Also the tone is really not what I want in a Sonic game. Ugh.

The generic destroyed city environment and the generic "epic" trailer nonsense was hype-killing, but then Classic Sonic showed up and FUCK EVERYTHING.

If it weren't for Sonic Mania, I'd be flipping a fucking table by now.

I just hope the 'epic' scenes in this aren't limited to the marketing material this time and there's some semblance of an adventure. Given the time they've had on this, it'll likely be at least better than how Generations handled it.

I've said this numerous times today, but I was really hoping for Sonic Adventure 3. However, that being said, I think Generations 2 is a smart move. It would be stupid to not make another game built off of the Generations engine and whatnot (which I'm assuming this will use) since Generations was probably the best received Sonic game in the last decade. Hopefully this game isn't super boost to win.

Also, apparently Iizuka said this game was NOT a sequel and is a "new" experience. lol wut? Looks like Sonic Generations 2 to me.

Edit: Also, I agree with what some others have said. They stereotypical destroyed city scene was kind of a turn-off for me.

It's hilarious how tepid I am to this teaser because of having Sonic Mania to look forward to in the spring. Still, the Generations formula of 2D/3D stages works really well, and the 3D Classic Model is so perfect. I kind of don't care why Classic Sonic is back

We don't NEED Classic Sonic in this. He will play superiorly in Sonic Mania. I wanted a pure, boost formula game, which granted, looks like we're getting, but seriously, a year of hinting and hype for A PRE-RENDERED TRAILER AND NOT EVEN A NAME.

No gameplay, no name, ugh. I watched that whole wreck of a live stream. Sonic Mania looks AMAZING, Sonic in Lego Dimensions looks like a blast, but I'm so freaking angry that after all of this hype, THIS is all we get to see of Project 2017. I'm legitimately salty right now.

At least the giant egg Robos look cool.

At the start my thoughts were kind of like an Unleashed-boost sequel...............and now Gens 2.

Don't get why people are getting so worked up over this. The Generations format WORKED and people still talk about the game to date. Even if it's not supposed to be a sequel, you get my point.

This is has to be a sequel to generations storyline! It won't probably have the same gameplay though.

The game will be great. But the amount of hype they set up for how little they showed of it was a complete bait and switch.

Oh, and if this is another boost game? Really, fuck everything. That's the last thing I want right now.
