Since we're on topic
Too bad they're not gonna fix the roster of Team Sonic Racing, a far more pressing problem imo.
Vector's playable and that's all that matters imo
But you don't know how fun it is to play as AGES, and one of the vehicles is the Hornet from Daytona USA!

How about we just get Mario & Sonic Racing, or even Nintendo X SEGA Racing.
Mario & Sonic Racing transformed would be *bleep*ing lit. I get to throw snowballs and blowfish at Eggman! :D

The problem with the Sonic series is that almost every 3D entry is so radically different that people who grew up with mostly just one will refuse to give the others any form of credit.
It's the exact opposite problem for 2D Mario.

I've only played a few Sonic games, but the ones I have played I liked a lot. I really love StH, StH2, S&tSR, S&tBK, Sonic Generations and Sonic Mania were all fun. I especially liked S&tBK's story, but not much else about that game. I also played StH4e1, but  that sucked. The physics were just awful compared to the regular Sonic flow of things.

I've played these:

-Sonic 1 (a not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic 2 (another not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic CD (yet another not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic X (an obscure edutainment game that I still have nostalgia for)
-Sonic 4: Episode 1 (I'd say it's pretty underrated, the physics weren't that bad)
-Sonic 4: Episode 2 (better than Episode 1...or it would be if I weren't stuck with that not-so-great mobile port)
-Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (very mediocre game, probably my least favorite non-edutainment/kiddy game of all time)
-Sonic Mania (best in the series I've played, honestly)
-Sonic Forces (it's not that bad, but I can see why it disappointed many)

It's the exact opposite problem for 2D Mario.
Not just radically different, but painfully mediocre at best in the end, and it really shows that developers lack confidence and competence, and I don't know, it just seems like when it's not Sonic Mania or the Twitter handle, Sonic invites incompetence (the movie, the brouhaha surrounding the comics, everything about the anniversary stream) and it always seems hilarious to me.

Sonic Forces was just mostly ho-hum gameplay, and it's so try hard with its new characters, it was a mess. The avatar creation system is the only thing noteworthy from the game. But hey, if you are blessed with the PC version, you can (eventually) play as Mario if you wanna. Mario'll make things less serious as it should've been.

Sonic Lost World didn't seem to wow the fanbase all that much.

BTW I'm playing Sonic Generations right now (as Mario of course), and it seems okay, though I haven't played even one hour yet. I don't like games that grade me.

And I did grab Sonic Mania just so I can use Mario eventually, but haven't booted that one up. We'll see if I dig the gameplay.

The 3D Sonic games that I have played are of the following order: Sonic Heroes, Sonic Lost World and finally Sonic Generations. Based on a recommendation by the FAQs, I picked Team Rose because I have never played either Adventure games, so while many people associated Team Sonic's dialogue with this game, I am more fond of Team Rose's one. Since I never played Sonic's boost games, I didn't have any preconceived notions on the flaws on Sonic Lost World in comparison to what worked, so I felt that it's pretty good if some refinements were made (like assigning walking to the button instead of running).

Thank you for reading.

No, Sonic Racing Transformed is NOT terrible garbage.  Thank you very much.

Sorry if it's not Sonic Mania it's hot garbage full of garbage characters.

As someone who wasted time on a toxic Sonic fourm for like 4 years( Dear god), it really does come down that Sega tries so many new things at once that no one can be satisfied all the way, it's a loud group but they aren't the whole package, I met plenty of level headed Sonic fans, at best, the only advise I can give at the end of the day is that if something keeps disappointing you, it's best to leave and stop stressing yourself out and maybe one day you'll find what you're looking for, live life, I guess?

I am easily pleased and I think that is a good trait for me, I enjoyed Heroes and Forces, the war between Unleashed and Colors irritates me because the whole thing is pointless because you are allowed to like something over the other and you don't need to put down another game just to make your point, what are you, Melee players?

I loved the Sonic Boom TV Show and the IDW comics, I think all the Sonic movie really needs is to get rid of the teeth and just admit that you ducked up instead working your animatiors to death

The main thing that disappoints me about TSR, is with the loss of the Sega characters, you could easily made a game with pretty much everyone from the franchise, not just like, 5 teams, give me a playable Vanilla and Tikal

So, yeah, Sonic is fun, fun things are fun, not much to fret over at the end of the day, all I want is to get better, but to say the franchise is at it's low because it's "okay" is outrageous, considering the fanbase is tired of reviewers bringing up 06 like that is the only thing that ever happened, that is the lowest low, the only thing that matched it in recent years is Boom Rise Of Lyric, but that was just a spin off that the other spin offs barely paid any mind to and we did get the show out of it, so it was a decent trade.

I am going to make a bet, if the next game isn't super amazing, people are going to be like "So, Forces wasn't so bad."

Come back soon and when you do, I have some new surprises in my hat for you

I've played these:

-Sonic 1 (a not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic 2 (another not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic CD (yet another not-so-great mobile port of a good game)
-Sonic X (an obscure edutainment game that I still have nostalgia for)
-Sonic 4: Episode 1 (I'd say it's pretty underrated, the physics weren't that bad)
-Sonic 4: Episode 2 (better than Episode 1...or it would be if I weren't stuck with that not-so-great mobile port)
-Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (very mediocre game, probably my least favorite non-edutainment/kiddy game of all time)
-Sonic Mania (best in the series I've played, honestly)
-Sonic Forces (it's not that bad, but I can see why it disappointed many)
For me, it's the same games, aside from Sonic X, 4 episode 1 and rise of frickin lyric.

However, one game I always wanted to try was Sonic 3 (& Knuckles). For some reason, Sega never bothered making it a mobile port and I've been wanting so ever since I started liking Sonic.

There is a fully functioning mobile port that the guy who made the original mobile ports made, but it's hard to work around the copyrights imposed because Michael Jackson helped create the soundtrack.

If only they were that logical. One surprisingly common complaint I've seen about Shadow the Hedgehog is "it came out close to Sonic 06". Dead serious.

The ideal way to experience Sonic 3 is to get it on Steam and then get this hack from the Workshop. While the "known issues" section indicates there's an even more ideal way, I'm not as sure about the legality.

The port hasn't actually been released due to copyright issues, it's just a proof of concept.
