Dave The Pygmy Marmoset - Doubt it
Gerald The Horse - Doubt it
and not forgetting...
See I think you people are over exaggerating, I liked StH 2006, and all the 3D games, sure they weren't the 2D Games of yesteryear but so what? They were fun in their own right, to be honest I think you people don't want to see anything else besides Sonic the Hedgehog Remake version 999999999999 where the only difference between it and the last trillion remakes is that sonic's nose is flattened.
but even then you'd probably complain.
Damn, no dave, gerald or alistair!
To be honest I was kind of joking really with the characters bit. I have absolutely no problem with new characters, just as long as they are good characters. I liked the addition of Blaze, although I think they still could do more with her. I didn't like Silver though, I just thought he was kind of boring! I just don't want characters introduced without good reason to.
I absolutely loved the majority of the 3d sonics. In fact, Sonic Adventure is actually may favourite Sonic game! *hires bodyguard* I loved Sonic Adventure 2 and I recently ordered Sonic Heroes and I don't think thats too bad either (sure its different but that doesn't make it bad).
I just didn't like STH 2006 simply because I didn't find it fun and I personally thought that the controls were a nightmare. I mean it just seemed to try and recycle old ideas from the sonic adventure series in a bad way. The blatant copy of the whale chasing bit in the first level to emerald coast in SA just made me think they weren't really trying. Secret Rings was nowhere near as bad as 2006 but I just didn't like the feeling of the gameplay. It felt like you were trapped and you had no choice but to go foward.
I mean all I've been waiting for was Sonic Adventure 3 and I have no problem with change as long as I feel its good (I'm one of the few looking foward to using the werehog if you look in the sonic unleashed thread *hires more bodyguards*). Yeah I am REALLY looking foward to Sonic Chronicles and Unleashed but I feel that the black knight is too much and may just turn out be a bit too gimmicky and for the money. I really do want to like it though so if I'm proven wrong then that would be great!
I don't intend to have a go but I just thought I'd let you know that I love any sonic games as long as they are good, whatever format they may take! I agree with you that too many people want it to be 2d all of the time, with just sonic. I always thought the sonic adventure route was a good one myself but unleashed and chronicles look damn promising!
