Sonic hasn't been good since SEGA stopped making consoles. They must like the character for something other than his games these days. Probably some quasi-furry shenanigans.

You might refer to these individuals as "Sonic Fanboys/Fangirls". People who draw Sonic fanart and make their own Mary Sues about Sonic. And what's creepier is that a lot of them are 15 to 30.

So why? I ask. Isn't Sonic a character for children? Like seriously.

no...i belive that sonic the hedgehog is for kids and adults...i am a sonic fan myself...people may find this wierd but i find this normal some people like sonic because he is cunning smooth fast and his name is awesome...(: and i believe it is thier choice to like sonic or not...and to me...sonic is awesome

neither the modern sonic or retro sonic are that good.

Game wise, character wise, or what?

Maybe because sonic kicks ass and takes names, I can still get blunted and roll through green hill zone and have my emerald to!

The thing I find with popular kids shows is that they tend to achieve cult status when the children become adults.

I also blame Sonic for the recent furry craze.

I fall in that Gen Y category, have to agree. but I don't see many fans flaunt it as they're as usual too busy bitching about how they can't play modern sonic games.

If you made a "fan character" your not a fan, your obsessed with Sonic, if you liked Sonic Riders/Shadow the Hedgehog/Sonic 06,(or recite Sonic Heroes as your favorite games) your obsessed with Sonic.

I used to be part of this "super awesome"(fail) group when they RP'd in Yahoo Chat rooms, when that shut down they all moved to Deviant Art, look what happened to that website. Everywhere they go stuff just turns to shit. Sonic fans never have any good ideas. They mostly just rip off ideas and make them worse. But because the fan base is so big they support each others bad characters

I get hating on My Little Pony, but Spongebob actually appeals to both kids and adults, it's legitimately funny. The older episodes anyway.

Nothing wrong with being obsessed with a franchise. (As long as you don't whore it out for the sake of pissing people off.) Nothing wrong with liking a game majority of others claim to hate. Nothing wrong with making fan characters and sharing them with like minded people, I'm sure many VG fan base has them.

Also deviant art is fine they're as much original artwork posted there as is here. Except NG is stricter and strives for quality not quantity.

Well I like riders (The first one only) and heroes. But that was because of nostalgia. So am I obsessed?

your the token Sonic fan I was expecting that has to defend sonic in the most random of moments. For every sonic thread that questions its fan base, there must be at least 1 that ill rise. To make this short, Mario fan characters? super rare. Halo fan characters? Multiplayer. Legend of Zelda fan characters? really? God of War... (based on fan characters compared to Sonic)

You fail to notice what extents people inject their Sonic fan characters into the franchise. It really seems you have no idea whats around you. I'm sorry I can't be fooled by you. Did you not read what I wrote, I was a part of this, I know how it works, for 10 years the people I knew didn't go anywhere. 10 years later, they are still hiding in their shell pretending to be someone else, Someone their not. So please, don't even try on me, your what I expected and your defense is shallow and a basic response to me.

Well I meant the series as a whole, and I consider Heroes passable, just the kids who say they still love it as the best sonic game ever.

Okay drama queen defending the franchise and giving an opinion from another perspective are two different things.

Okay so I'm not aloud to voice my opinion if it's to the aid of Sonic gotchya. Also who cares Like I said if they want to make fanart then let them do it. So what if you see it more from our fansbase (if your still a fan) then any other do you wanna know why? Because the art style is EASY and very kid friendly.

Okay so pretty much your complaining and being really defensive about me not experiencing what you've experienced. And Acting like I'm some cultist trying to convert you to become some obnoxious fan-boy. Then giving some unclear backstory on how a fanbase scarred you for life or some shit. Please elaborate or get to the point. because I can't take this part seriously.

I love how you missed every point, I wasn't making the point of, I'm more experienced in this thing, nope, you failed that twice. I read your profile and you will defend Sonic at any given notice, hold forward to win Street Fighter 4.

Your not worth the time, toot toot Sonic warrior.

Brushes me off as being inexperienced and acts like everything the sonic fan base does is wrong because it's sonic related. Hell of a valid argument.

Then continues failing by trying to find "dirt" on my "fanboyism".

The point of that argument was you don't just hold forward to win in any game, sonic or otherwise.
You don't hold forward to win obviously, but holding forward is important when your opponent won't approach you is it not? So yes holding forward is crucial to being in hit range.

Very, few people on this site have valid reasons towards they're hatred of sonic games and your arguments are no better then the majority here.
