Sonic is Sonic by ARTic-Weather Sonic is Sonic by ARTic-Weather
This is what gets me most about each side of the Sonic Fanbase.

You got the Retro fans that want nothing more then a complete remake of Sonic 1, and you know if that happened, they'd find something to whine about. Most of the time they all think Sonic 3 was the best game EVA (Even though, I think compared to Sonic CD it was crap, music, level, and gameplaywise)
And you have the modern fans that just want running forward as fast as you can. Oh no, we don't want Platforming in this Platformer we just want to run as fast as we can in a straight line.
As well as this, the Retro fans hate Sonic's new design, being sleek, older looking, and the green eyes. The Modern fans don't like Sonic's old, stubby fat boy design.

Hang on. They're both Sonic. How can you be a Sonic fan if you hate one of them? It isn't possible.

Oh my god.

You can't possibly be a sonic fan if you don't like every aesthetic of his design? You must be forced to like every single design of his no matter what your taste is or you cannot consider yourself apart of the fandom? 

Fuck that asinine bullshit, and your stupid ass No True Scotsman Fallacy philosophy!

People can like what ever the hell they want, and don't need to be forced to accept everything for the sake of holding a goddamn label.

They're not saying you need to like both designs, or love them. They're just saying you should have the decency to respect them.

This is just a matter of opinion. Learn to respect it.

I've grown up with Modern Sonic, but I really like both. I've played a lot of Classic games, and love the Modern games. Sonic is Sonic, no matter what.

The thing is, I enjoy Sonic in any way or form. As long as his iconography remains, he's still Sonic. The original Megadrive/Genesis games are what made me passionate about the games industry and I've enjoyed the blue blur's antics ever since.

However, when it comes to 3D, Sonic Adventure had it all. It wasn't linear, You had a good mix of platforming, rudimentary speed, and exploration in 3D space. Even the original games allowed you to go back and forth, look for hidden items and find secrets. In Sonic Generations, you run as fast as you can through these fantastically rendered and well developed environments, yet non of it is interactive or explorable for the player. Sonic Adventure wasn't perfect, but it was a perfect blueprint for what the franchise could have become. Take a look at the state of the industry from 1998-1999 and look at it now, it's hard for me to ignore the lack of innovation that has been made in the series since. However, the Sonic Boom game does look promising.

I hope I properly articulated my thoughts on the matter, but I am still a Sonic fan, no matter what.
