Guilty as charged. I've never played a Sonic game because firstly, the speed thing just always seemed like a gimmick, and secondly, the setting and characters all just seem so tacky.

Are those good reasons for ignoring an entire franchise? Hell no, but it's cool to bag on Sonic, so I get away with it.

@NotTelevision "The Last of Us: Moments of intensity and strategic gameplay can’t save the game from feeling a bit samey. I just don’t think the game was well paced. You fight off a room of clickers and then a horde of zombies, only to be presented the same scenario in a slightly different brown and gray environment. Since the game puts so much emphasis on story, it’s also right to criticize that."

Which part of "Naughty Dog" did you happen to miss on the box?

@KoekiieWoekiie They'd still be waiting, and they'd still be trying to make WiiU happen. They'd probably be selling off IPs by now to stay in the black.

@iKhan It's from the 90's. It's supposed to be tacky.

Sonic is one of those series where the hatedom has just become too much of a neverending cliche that's gotten boring and is a bit unfair. I do think it also helps that a lot of the fandom has clearly tried to be more the opposite of what people think of the Sonic fandom for. And quite frankly, just through sheer quantity, there's easily more good Sonic games than there are...Metroid games in general. For example.

That being said, there's no reason why after Colors and Generations released in back to back years, that Sega has spent the past 7 years not doing more of that. I can't comprehend why they couldn't make something remotely close to that quality again.

Everytime a new Smash Bros comes out, people are too fast to crown it king. The series really has a ton of novelty bias to it. Everyone looks at all the new characters, all the gameplay changes, and thinks "oh look at all this improvement, this must be the best Smash game". But then they overlook any negative aspects to the gameplay changes, poorly designed additional modes, bad online, etc.

I remember back when Smash 4 came out, it was sacrilege to say anything other than it was the best Smash game unless you were a competitive melee/brawl player. Fast forward to now, and I'm pretty sure it's my least favorite since Smash 64.

I'm still team Melee, because I think it has the best gameplay in the series combined with the second best side content.

I kinda like GTA IV's driving.

I find the "edgy tryhard" attitude that some games take (Shadow the Hedgehog, DmC: Devil May Cry, to name a few) to be more ironically entertaining than annoying or irritating, due to the sheer lengths a game will go to to make itself "mature". Something about that is just fun to me.

After trying it, I feel Realm Royale is a better battle royale game than Fortnite. When I tried Fortnite, I really didn't like the fact you couldn't come back and keep playing. I get the point of battle royale is to eliminate players, but it's not fun to be in that crawling downed state.

I really like the chicken system, rather than being down crawling unable to do anything, my character becomes a chicken. If I run away or hide in the chicken state for 20 seconds, I can come back, keep playing, and have a better chance at improving, getting a higher rank or even winning. I like that a lot, plus it adds excitement in a "get away before someone makes your chicken pop" kind of way.

I feel this game is underrated, I'm having more fun than expected with this one.

I once made a review stating that Super Princess Peach was sexist (though fun and I would highly recommend it for fans of Super Mario Bros. and Yoshi). I now retract that statement in the face of the current state of the toxic, misandrist, and very unfeminine "feminist" movement.

It seems that most female heroes nowadays have little discernible femininity beyond the protrusion from their chests. It's perfectly fine to be a dainty hero, Princess; in fact, it's better than fine. Compassion, warmth, and selflessness are far more admirable qualities in women than attempting to emulate the brashness and vulgarity of certain types of assertive men. I now realise that I had been wrong about you. It is a crying shame that the current sociopolitical climate would not permit the likes of a rerelease (which would explain why it was never released as Wii U VC) or a sequel, which shows just how the masses have been brainwashed into a particular ideology in the 13 years since its original release.

I wonder if it might have something to do with (Tose), none of the Starfy games ever got rereleased on VC either.
EDIT Replace Toei with Tose, guess DB was on the brain LOL

Of course you mean Tose, and I see where you're coming from, but many of their Game Boy and Game Boy Color games were released via 3DS VC, and I very strongly doubt that Tose would have any say as to what Nintendo does with the properties as Nintendo would most likely be considered the authors for the purposes of copyright (as the statement often appears in end credits) and would ultimately call the shots. It would be foolish of Nintendo to commission a game that uses their IP while allowing another party dictate what they can and can't do with it.

It is very strange though that the Starfy games hadn't been rereleased in Japan, including The Legendary Starfy which is the only game in the series to date that has been released internationally (I managed to nab two sealed copies at AU$5 a pop back in the day!). And assuming that it was a commercial failure (hence no new Starfy games since) one would think that Nintendo would want to make the best of a bad situation by salvaging the brand with a digital-only rerelease via the Wii U eShop.

Anyway, I think we're going a little off-topic here. Back to unpopular opinions.

Except they did try to do that again with Forces and missed the mark. Also, comparing the number of good Sonic games to Metroid games is completely unfair because 1) Sonic is Sega's trademark franchise while Metroid is one of Nintendo's less popular IPs, of course its gonna have more games and 2) Sega is notorious for pushing Sonic and ignoring most of their franchises, Nintendo makes way more of an effort to spread out their resources to all their IPS. (There's a reason why we only get 1 or 2 major Mario platformers per console and not annual releases.)

I haven't played Super Princess Peach and I don't know what parts of the feminist movement you consider to be toxic, but from what I know about the game I agree with you. There's nothing wrong with more 'macho' female protagonists like Samus Aran and Lara Croft, but at the same time it's perfectly fine for girls and women to like stereotypically feminine things and behave in a stereotypically feminine way, like Peach does. I think you're exaggerating a little about how people would react these days though; you may get a vocal minority who would be opposed to Peach's portrayal but I doubt the masses would bat an eyelid.

lol I remember people getting on me when I called Super Princess Peach sexist. There's no getting around it. You have to manipulate her extreme emotional mood swings in order to get through levels.

It's a shame, really, because I think it's one of the more creative games Nintendo has released.

I mean I can definitely see why people would say it's sexist, and it is in a way, but I don't think it's that bad really. Again, I haven't played it though, so I can't say for sure.

I'd say the vibe scepter is also a pretty questionable decision

I'd much rather play SOTN with the new PSP dub nowadays than the original.
"Die monster" has been repeated and memed so many times it feels like I'm looking at some very tired and ran into the ground joke like "the cake is a lie xDDDDDDD".

Other than those 'funneh' lines, I don't feel like the original english dub is that good at all.

It took me some courage to type all this. I fear for my life.
