I definitely agree with Wraith. The solution is to improve the execution of gameplay and story, not to throw some or all of it out and start over. One might argue that the latter is what got us into this current predicament to begin with. Reboots, or even soft reboots, have the temptation for the creator to overindulge and create something completely unique that doesn't honor the intention and themes of the original work. I think people have bought into the marketing speak when it claims reboots are for "a modern audience" when really an original work can rightfully stand the test of time. Reboots and soft reboots are simply because someone wants to use an existing IP as the jump-off point of their own completely original story #donotsteal. Imo, it's a fairly lazy way to create any story. Either write within the confines of that IP or write something completely new. In the case of Sonic, don't break it even more with this sort of thing. The concept of the series is fine as is, it's just the execution that's suffered over the past decade.
