I mean, I do agree with you; my introduction was the games, and even something Sonic X was heavily based on what they were at the time. To me, there was literally no difference between what Sonic was pre or post-Dreamcast until a bunch of people on the Internet said so and then Sega kind of validated those people with Generations. But, what can you do. We're human at the end of the day, and we can't help our biases; if someone's interpretation of Sonic was through any of the alternate continuities, or they just felt that strongly against the post-Dreamcast designs and aesthetics, then that's on them. Sonic's multiple demographic appeal is both its greatest strength and it's biggest curse at the same time. But to bring this back to the Netflix series; since we know its not going to be based on any existing continuity, my bet is that it's gonna be another Sonic X scenario where its a world heavily based on the games, but like the games similar to what IDW is at the moment.
