It kind of sucks to be a fan who doesn't have a preferred era of sonic games. I like the classic games, adventure games, unleashed, black knight, colors, and lost world. Yet people seem to want to say that their games are good and the others are bad, and I'm here like "Can we just say they each have some good in them. Do you feel the same wash?
Despite how my posts may sound at times, I’m pretty much the same. I don’t prefer one specific part of Sonic’s history over all the rest. (For example, I may prefer the Classic style of colours and environments overall, but I also enjoy plenty of the Modern cast.)
But yeah, I think the main problem is that a lot of fans abide by a “we’re the Rebels, everyone else is the Empire” type of mindset, and it’s… not a healthy or realistic one to have, obviously.
