Yet would I still be willing to hand myself over to the enemy after the end of the war? Judges say: hells to the NO!Ngangbius wrote:^Dude, 1994 is over.
Okay, so what we're debating about really comes down to a personal taste, but still, why can't I have both? Why don't we derserve a game not only is well-crafted and coded to perfection, being the easiest to control and most fun to play, but also has the main hero/heroine who actually their own picks with people?
I'll give props to you: Nintendo is capiable of making serious titles like Zelda and Metroid, both worthy of any gamer's collection to keep. But the thing about Link and Samus is the fact that they play out as the 'nobel hero who'll always do the right thing'.
I don't see Sonic as that nobel hero - more like a guy who plays a hero only because it's just fun pissing off a fat man with an IQ of Albert Einstine, a.k.a 'just because'. Mario doesn't get shown in that light, neither does Samus, Link, Fox or any other 'hero' of any franchise Nintendo's been involved in (maybe except for Donkey Kong).
Point being, this would be the reason why most people wouldn't agree on letting Nintendo take the franchise off Sega's hands: because no lead character has the same unique quality that Sonic has since the day he was created from the 16 pixels Sega drew him from: he's an impatient, cocky, smart-assed kid who you could relate him to the same underdog you use to know or still knew from high school. If Nintendo's willing keep that same quality with him when they do make a platformer for him, then sure I'd buy it like $1 hotcakes!
But my gut tells me that won't fly with Nintendo. So I wouldn't risk it.
