Blah blah Sonic Forces sucks, yeah. And while I've said on more than one occasion that Sonic Team is incompetent, I'd like to do something positive now that Forces is everything I thought it was gonna be. So, seeing as how we're all in the mood to say what has been done wrong, why not channel this into something positive: creating a comprehensive document on about how a Sonic game should be handled. We know Sonic Team has a bible of sorts but (looking at Forces) I don't think their bible actually covers much of the game building aspects. Now, I gave it some thought about what this would entail and I think the sections should be divided up into the three styles: Classic, Boost, and 3d . These sections will be divided into Character mechanics/movement, level design, boss design, and special/bonus stage implementation. To clarify: Classic will be covering Sonic 1, 2, CD, 3&K, Chaotix, and Mania. It's safe to say this is where the formula has been expressed and how the designing of a Classic styled game would be done. Boost will be covering Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventure as they are what I consider PURE Boost games unlike Unleashed through Forces which were diluted and clearly influenced (negatively) by the storybook games (lock on homing attack, stomp, and run behind sections). There should also be a section about the Advance trilogy here as the evolution from Classic to Boost is most apparent here. 3D will be difficult but I think it's worth visiting Sonic Adventure through Sonic 06 and Rise of Lyric in that they are completely 3d games. I expect this section to be neigh impossible to complete but we'll try nonetheless. Spin offs (like Sonic Spinball and Sonic Shuffle) will not be covered. An exception is made for Rise of Lyric in that I believe there to be something salvageable here. Likewise, character presentation, timeline, etc will be excluded for the simple fact that this isn't an official Sega document where franchise maintenance would matter. It is about making games. Lastly, I considered a music section but I don't honestly have no idea what it would entail. So, anyone interested?
