Maybe Sonic shouldn't be retired, but Sonic team needs to be shaken up.

This I can agree with.

So what do you mean like Sonic team is lacking talent? They made graphics of the Sonic games great so what do you exactly mean by talent.

I'm right now playing lost world on 3DS and its fun so far.

creativity is the insane possibility.

Nope. They should make a super awesome 2D sonic game again though. With the hd visuals and fancy effects I'm sure sega could release a modern day classic! I wait in hope!

Sonic is pretty much one of the few properties SEGA has that still brings home the bacon. The other is Football Manager. Sonic sells a lot still, despite some flawed games on recent years (Sonic Heroes,'06, Black Knight, need I say more?). And Sonic has been improving recently on Nintendo consoles, Colours was good and Lost World seems to be not that bad either. The spin-off racing series finally struck me with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Wii U (seriously, its an awesome kart racer, Mario Kart, beware). Mario and Sonic at the Olympics are fun games that sell a lot.
These threads are really getting dull, people. Find more creative ways to stir controversy, will you?

The Sonic games have always had that awkward broken up clunky rhythm to them. A roller coaster ride without hardly any control. Gimmicky 'Trying to 1-up mario by being a grinning speedy bad a**' loopdeeloop gameplay with blazing blast processing speed that gives the player very little control succumbing to a complete halt where sloppy 2nd rate frustrating platforming takes centre stage. either way you lose. This is coming from somebody who stuck by Sonic's side during the sega genesis, Game Gear & Dreamcast....And I'm now scratching my mullet, trying to figure out why. Different strokes i guess.

My favorite sonic experience? "The Adventures of Sonic" cartoon that came out in the early 90's. I gulped down one too many Pizza pockets during Sonics zany' cartoon TV debut. I think i'm going to take a stroll down to Amazon after my mega trip from video land and pick up the complete series on DVD, tee hee.

Speaking of which how many units have the Sonic series sold so far? According to vgchartz, it sold 105 million units but according to wikipedia, it sold 85 million units. And according to fans, it sold 140 million units.

I like Sonic, but ever since the GameCube the games have taken a massive drop in quality, and the franchise has been dragged through the mud ever since.
Sonic Colors and Generations were good, but with Lost World I conclude that SEGA just doesn't know what a Sonic game should be.
I mean, Sonic just has no identity - is it a side-scroller? A 3D platfomer with multiple characters? Solo Sonica? Does Sonic have a sword? Are there in-game power ups? Is he fast, or slow? Can he boost? Can he spindash
Now about what I said earlier, I don't think Lost World was a bad game in general. Just bad execution - like IGN said.
SEGA is taking chances with Sonic to home in on the perfect balance, and I think they're getting close.

I don't want Sonic to be retired, but the mediocore games have gone on far too long - when will the fans get another game they can truly call a treasure?
If the bad games continue, then, at the most, I think Sonic should be sold- to Nintendo specifically.

I can name a bunch of other series that should be 'retired' other then Sonic. But it is not going happen because people keep buying them. -_-

Sometime in the near future, I'd like to translate my favorite LNs, VNs, games and Manga series.

let me guess it starts with "Call" and ends with "Duty", right?

Sonic Generations is amazing when it is working properly on PC at 1080p/60fps.

Think I have put more time into it than both Mario Galaxy games put together.

Here is the best bit the most enjoyment started at about 20 hours in and still continues to right now.

(On the other hand I have no desire whatsoever to play Galaxy or Galaxy 2 again in the near future).

Another thing surprisingly I like the 3D Levels best in Generations.

Nights into Dreams is still the best Sonic Team game.

I don't agree about the lack of rhythm in Sonic (Especially 1/2/CD - Haven't played 3 & Knuckles that much because I have always had not good versions of it).

Generations isn't like that either I am not at the point where I can boost pretty much all the time yet the better i get at it the more enjoyment I get. You have to do it right or you just boost of the edge all the time.

Yuji Naka is to Sonic like Miyamoto is to Mario. Rodeo the Sky Soldier looks ace I hope it gets released. Even stuff like Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is fun and interesting.

At this point of time, I don't know what the faith of the Sonic series is gonna be and I'm more positive about Mario as there's no deny in that.

If they could do like how they did for Generations, Colors, Advance and Classic.........

Hell no.
Though I do think Sega would benefit from giving some of their other IPs a push similar to what Sonic gets.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.
