As funny as I found this vid, it really makes me think. Sonic started out with fantastic momentum. I can remember playing the Genesis for hours, savoring every moment as I passed through zone after zone. All of the recent games seem stale in comparison, and there is no real sales when a Sonic game hits the shelves.
So what is the root of the problem regarding stagnant Sonic? I will admit the games lack vision nowadays, they seem almost generic rehashes of previous entries. Unfortunately, I have no real idea as to how Sonic and Sonic Team could recapture his former glory and actually compete with the Mario mega-seller once again.
