@Captain_Gonru I'd argue that the foundation is still strong, but the problem was in how they were executed. Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie were great platformers because they gave you something to DO amidst all the collecting. It was when the game focused on collecting and nothing more, as in DK64 and Jak & Daxter, that the concept became tiresome.

6 seems fair. I actually like this well enough--it's certainly not the trainwreck that every other Sonic game since 1998 has been--but it is repetitive, and the special stage is a real bore. Curiously, the Saturn version has a completely different special stage, which is said to be the best in the whole series.

Putting a gamepad on the arcade cabinet was a great idea. For casual players, the familiar control scheme will make the arcade game less intimidating. For serious gamers, there's no need to transition to a different control setup when the game inevitably hits consoles.
