Amen. Exactly how I feel. We're way beyond the tipping point, Sonic's been 'bad' for more years now than he's been good. Just give me a Mania 2 with no reused levels and I'll be happy. All this other fluff (including the modern titles) doesn't interest me anymore. EDIT: My good friend who's a creative director told me what his vision would be: a classic chase movie. Example, Robotnik kidnaps Tails and the whole movie is just once big chase scene with Sonic in pursuit. Stuff happens along the way. Simple. Effective. I'm all in for that. No one wants to see Sonic befriend a policeman for god's sake.
