Someone brought my attention back to this old idea I've had for ages now- being that Sonic Unleashed (not just in speed, but in style and design direction too) is singlehandedly the fastest Sonic game released to date. I really want to hear people's thoughts on this. I personally think it is, due to multiple factors: >Sonic moves the fastest he ever has in 3d, with the only game tying it being Sonic Generations. >However, unlike generations, Sonic has a wider drift arc. While it's not as useful this way, it feels faster, due to the slipping and sliding giving the effect of moving so fast you're losing control. >Compared to the secondary gimmick of classic sonic, who is almost as fast as Sonic is, the werehog is obtusely slower, meaning that Sonic feels ever faster by comparison. >The game actively calculates your speed anytime you pass a checkpoint >The game is constantly making high-tech dial, gauge, and chime sounds for various actions >The game has the shortest and hardest to complete QTEs in the franchise >And all of this combined with Sonic's joy-filled shouts and whoops and he parkours around the world Those are all of the reasons I can list off of the top of my head- not forgetting the level design either. What do all of you think? Also, while we're at it, why don't we talk about other games too? Like which one is objectively the most well rounded (most people are gonna say sonic 1 or something, but I'd genuinely be happy if people came in here and said sonic forces or sonic blast etc). Like, instead of just thinking about what we like, think about what would appeal to kids. Or people outside of the fanbase. I honestly can't remember ever seeing a discussion like this here before, since most of us spend our time screaming at each other like toddlers over how our preferred version of sonic is objectively the right one (including me), so I wanted to try to shift gears a bit. With my luck though, this'll just get trashed lol :D So what do you say- is Sonic Unleashed the fastest Sonic game? Or does that title belong to Gens? Or advance 2? And what games are #1 in other categories?
