Maybe it's just me, maybe I'm an ageing stick in the mud shaking my fist at clouds, but I just don't understand why SEGA can't keep things simple with Sonic!
Sonic Generations looks great. This trailer is interesting. The 'Classic Sonic' sections look well designed, speedy and fun - like the kind of Sonic games we all want to be a part of.
So what's this snowboarding down the middle of the street 'Modern Sonic' business? Are SEGA deliberately attempting to dilute their brand? Why does the game have to split itself in two to cater to two different demographics? Surely New Super Mario Bros. Wii showed that updated classic mechanics can be hugely popular across folks of all different demographics?
EDIT: It appears I may have completely missed the point with this video! I will humbly take the loss. That said - I stand by my assertion that SEGA don't really need to be confusing things. I'd rather have a straight Sonic game that plays through a number of familiar locations. That's just me!
