Because it was the creation of all these stupid new characters that was Sonic's downfall.

There is definitely a fucking ridiculous amount of new characters with every game release.
They should have stuck with Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles.

Every game series bought out by EA has been ruined, with very few exceptions. Also, Mad Doc (now Rockstar NE) took the Empire Earth series out back and shot it right in the fucking face.

I beg to differ, Sonic is now going through a downfall. Sonic Generations is probably the worst sonic game to come to date.
It was just a "Press the forward key and watch cool effects" kind of game. TOO easy for a platformer game and not worth anyone's time. I lost my faith in future Sonic games the day I played Sonic Generations.

Have you played 06? etc...

Sonic 06 is the only Sonic game that I haven't played so I can't comment on it.

I'd be willing to say there are more really bad Sonic games in the classic era than the modern. Sonic R, Blast, Sonic Schoolhouse, Tails' Skypatrol. The classic games were amazing, right?

Agreed on this point.

Fable 2 started to become more casual with one button combat and never actually dying. Fable 3 pretty much completely removed the good/evil system, the main appeal of the game, and the story was awful. Fable: The Journey is a kinect game.

My friend wouldn't give Rayman Origins a chance because all he knows about Rayman is those Rabbids games. Needless to say, he is very ignorant and stupid. Lots of games he won't give a chance.

The most recent spider man games suffer from a bad case of slapping the player's hands away from the controller and trying to play the game for you.

I think it just stopped being good when they starting being set in modern day. As is the situation with Medal of Honor. They traded in everything that was good about the earlier games in favor of cheap attempts to make hollywood-type action and new guns, and now it's just so disgustingly generic.

Though in their defense you can only do world war 2 games for so long before they get generic as well.

Resident Evil 5 was not the right step to take at all. Hopefully Resident Evil 6 will make a nice rebound. From what I've been seeing though it's gonna be... interesting.

I don't know what ruined it, but Tenchu has continued to suck after Wrath of Heaven, the last great game in the series.

Oh my GOD! This sounds just like my brother! He got ONE taste of BlazBlue and was like "Screw this". ONE TASTE! Games like that take something called...Oh, I don't know...*gasp* PRACTICE! You don't get good just by playing it once. You have to give it time and practice.

Also, the only characters that should ever be in a Sonic game are Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Dr. Robotnik.

I dunno...Having the same characters over and over and over will get boring eventually. I think that was the logic behind Sega's decision to make more characters. I think the inclusion of Rouge the Bat and only a few others I can't think of right now can be in the Sonic canon. Shadow the Hedgehog can go jump off a cliff as far as I'm concerned. My main thing when it comes to story arcs and new characters is: If he or she or it can fit into the canon and work well with the cast and make sense being there, I'm all for it.

That's the thing, though. The original Sonic games never needed a real story. just good, challenging 2d platforming gameplay. Maybe Scratch and Grounder would be alright.

The original Driver game for the Playstation was considered to be one of the best driving games ever. It was a lot more than just a generic point A to point B racing game, as you also had to do missions along the way, often going against the police who were very aggressive in stopping you. To top it off, they had some of the most realistic and amazing graphics at the time, considering how big the game world is.

Then the second game came out, and it all went downhill from there, crapping out on the graphics, style and overall gameplay and turned into a shitty GTA clone. Basically, it tried to be something it's not when Infogrames/Atari got a hold of the franchise, and a potentially amazing series simply went down the drain.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I seem to remember quite a bit of 2D platforming. Even in modern Sonic's stages.

I remember A LOT of 2d platforming in the modern Sonic stages.
The controls were stiff and unresponsive. And those parts were easy and disgraceful to the original classic platformering games like Sonic The Hedgehog on the sega and Sonic Advanced 2 & 3
To be honest, the 3d platforming parts weren't that bad actually but they were pretty scarce and too straightforward and short.

Driver 2 came out before GTA III. There is some debate to which is the real clone. Rockstar got the idea to make a 3d game from Driver 2.

a potentially amazing series simply went down the drain.

Have you played the Driver game that came out last year? One of the most amazing arcade racing games out there (Even though it was a bit linear and dumbed down, but still).

I hated how they made the Jak and Daxter series darker and alot like GTA and not the fun little platformer that it was. The same can be said for Sonic.

Especially with such dark games as Colors and Generations.
Owait.

Resident Evil 4 ruined the series for me, hated it. Can't stand the new gameplay, story line and I hate the fuck out of the character Leon. Cheesey as fuck acts more badass than he really is. Fuck him! lol
