Given the fact that Breath of the Wild was apparently super controversial to longtime Zelda fans, I feel like it makes sense that this game would similarly be controversial to longtime Sonic fans. Honestly, it would be weirder if a Sonic game didn't divide people in some shape or form lol. So I choose to ignore people cuz they're annoying. I went from mostly apathetic to being cautiously optimistic; I want to like this game, but I'm curious on how much its going to hold my attention. I still haven't even finished Breath of the Wild OR Pokemon Legends, even though I do find those games fun and well put together. There's only but so much I can engage in the same gameplay loop before I get bored. I do prefer feeling like I'm working towards a goal in a game, hence why I prefer the more Arcadey experience of older games and fighting games. I can enjoy Open-world games too, but they definitely don't hold my attention for as much time.
