Much like the topic title says, do you think the Riders series deserves a 2nd chance? I've been feeling some nostalgia towards the 1st game lately and gave the Sonic Riders DX hack a shot and it's pretty fun! I haven't touched Riders since the days I owned a GameCube, so it was an interesting revisit. It's a unique racing game at the very least, maybe it could stand for some more typical kart racer items but overall it's a neat concept with a nice surrounding future aesthetic and a pretty great soundtrack. It was also, imo anyway, the best looking Sonic game of the GC/PS2/Xbox era. I'd argue that it's art style alone makes it look better than 06 too, certainly more expressive. I never played Zero Gravity and the series died when they tried to use the fucking Kinect to control Free Riders, but I think a reboot that refines the original game's mechanics would be welcome, especially since then we've gotten 3 sumo kart racers with the last one being very... meh. But what do you all think? It's been I think 10 years since the stink that was Free Riders? I think enough time has passed that if they were serious about it they could redeem the series.
