I say this with Sonic Adventure 2 being my favorite game, and one I casually speedrun for fun. Still, the stigma remains and despite everything looking positive pre-release there were still some fears that a “fan game” could only be so good or somehow “doesn’t count” as a true follow up. Here’s where we go back to the joke about Sonic Team “forgetting” how to make games; in order to “forget” something you have to know it in the first place. Sonic Team is not an eternal omnipresent deity churning out Sonic games by the exact same process over and over again; they’re a team of people and for the most part they’re not the same people making the games from 20 years ago.

That title was a childhood favorite of mine – I’d love to give it another try alongside its predecessor, which passed me by at release.
Honestly, after putting an hour into the review copy before shipping it to Josh, I’d rather just play Sonic 2 when I feel nostalgic. I’m glad people derive enjoyment from the later games, but I do not. I actually kind of enjoyed playing Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, and Secret Rings was mildly enjoyable. I’ll admit that might be good, and I’ve heard very good things.
Sonic Frontiers Review (Xbox Series X)
He eventually married an author of children’s books, and one of her books is the story of the original Sonic the Hedgehog game. “‘Cool’ can be something that’s more on the surface, visual or expressive, or just cool character design…but that wasn’t the cool that we were looking for,” said Oshima. Instead, he said the team wanted a character that was “cool” because of his attitude — he wouldn’t follow others’ orders and would always fight for what he believed in. In retrospect the pair said that the design of Sonic was freighted with concerns about what a “mascot” for Sega should be.
