This was clearly a very personal video for King K. It was entertaining as I certainly gained insight into King K’s relationship with 06. That said I think the past, present, future format prevented the video from providing any deep or insightful analysis of the actual game. I get what King K is trying to do in this video (which is to contrast the joy 06 gave him as a kid with the harsh reality he sees as an adult) but I don’t think this contradiction is explored in much detail. The video’s basically: I liked this as a kid, now I’m a more attentive adult…. so thank god for this fan game. As the mechanic pointed out, it’s all broad strokes. That said given the nostalgia so many have for 06, the video does seem representative of many 2000s kids view of the game. The future segment really demonstrates how subjective this whole “at least *insert game here* hAd Ambition” argument is. King K’s allowed to not feel passion for Sonic now. I get it, as I’m at best lukewarm towards Frontiers. But the way he dismisses all the reasons people have for being excited about frontiers seems hypocritical given his complaints earlier in the vid about the 2D Sonic “elites” (his words) here on Sonic Retro. I understand the larger point he’s making, that 06 was not inherently flawed and could’ve been good if given more dev time. it’s just disappointing for that argument to be jumbled together with his, completely valid, disinterest and close mindedness towards modern sonic… because many other folks argue that the current sonic team has “ambition” they just haven’t been given the dev time needed to deliver. The word “Ambition” is constantly thrown around, and it’s metric seems to be whatever a certain fan’s preference is.
