When I first started to get into Archie and SATAM, I too wanted something more akin to the games and kind of lamented about it. Its why Sonic X was my favorite series for so long, since it had all of the stuff that I liked from the games...except Chris. But I'm 29 now, and I have enough understanding to realize why these changes were made and why adhering so strictly to the source material isn't necessarily a good thing for creativity. IDW is as close to the games a comic has gotten and, ngl, while I do like it, I can't deny that its kind of mediocre on the plot and characterization when it comes to the game original characters. I got what I wanted after so long and realizes its nowhere what I imagined it to be and it made me come around to all of the crazy changes that came before, because there was much more creative passion there.
