The last good 3D entries in the Sonic series that feel like they had any amount of effort or passion involved were Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors. Every single game since has been passable at best. Sonic has truly felt dead to me since 2011. There is SO MUCH you could do with a sonic game, and I am utterly clueless as to why SEGA can't pump out one title that doesn't seem completely rushed. I am truly sick of waiting for fans to "fix" the latest 3D titles. They will never put in enough work to fix these games, and they will never have the correct tools to fix these games. Nobody will hire them to do it, so nobody will pay them to do it or give them the tools they need to do it. Sure we have Sonic Mania but it is just one giant rehash that shows how low the Sonic series has fallen. Don't get me wrong I'm happy that prominent members of Sonic Retro were recognized and got to develop their dream game for SEGA, but SEGA themselves also forced them to make 90% of the game unoriginal. It doesn't exactly count as a genuine Sonic game. It's just a corporate funded fan game. What I'm mainly curious about here is one thing... is there ANY reason to believe SEGA will ever start caring about Sonic enough to start releasing quality games again? Has Sonic Retro done any research that lets them come to the conclusion that just maybe, we will get an actual good game sometime in the next few years? Somebody here has to be snooping around.
