Everything about the atmosphere of Sonic Colors. Sonic's less of a touchy-feely emotional bitch like he was in Sonic '06 and Secret Rings, and more like the cocky bastard he used to be. The fact that he no longer takes himself seriously is a massive sigh of relief.
The levels in Colors were fantastic. I mean, Sweet Mountain? That's easily my favorite level design ever. None of it makes any sense, because it's Sonicland. It doesn't fucking have to make any sense. It's just a level made of food.
Roger Craig Smith and Mike Pollock are the best voice actors for their respective characters to date. I have no desire to see either VA quit these roles. Ever.
Sonic Team have found direction for Sonic. After all these years of trying new shit continuously, they finally have a direction that works, even if it's vague (which I totally don't mind, by the way. Leaves room for ideas that hopefully don't suck). His design is almost perfect, if a bit plastic as far as his face is rendered in the boxart for Sonic 4 Ep1 and 2. Generations did it right though, by not trying to give him a lower lip.
