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.
