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.

I like both designs, and both generations of Sonic. :P

Though I'm a Modern fan, I still liked Classic Sonic but I don't like what SEGA has done to him. He nowadays is a cocky jock who doesn't take his threats seriously. That's my only problem about modern sonic. His personality used to be multi dimensional but now he is one dimansional.

I am a modern fan but I think the classic sonic is cute in a way, maybe because I loved playing as the classic sonic in Generations and I saw Classic plushies in the mall in 2011 for Sonic Generations and they were soooo cute I had to get one!
UnknownJayfeather Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't like classic sonic very much,probably cause the first sonic game I got was sonic rush,but I don't hate him like rabid modern sonic fans do.
Skooterwolf Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015
No matter what he look like or how he's designed , Sonic will always be sonic.

I love Sonic no matter what his design is, and other 'fans' should do the same.

Too true, thanks very much for this :D

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.
DragonDragoo Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

i don't mind either i've played the classic and the originals and i love sonic cuss he's an awesome mascot who's game are amazing
seadoq Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013
I do prefer the older Sonic design over the new one, but I don't "hate" it. It doesn't mean I can't call myself a Sonic fan, because if they're both Sonic and I like one better than the other, I'm still a fan of Sonic, right? 
I just gave myself a headache, but still! o3o

Always hip, always cool, sometimes awkward, and always packing, he's still Sonic.
bizrat Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I get that it's really annoying when the two sides bicker, but saying it's impossible to like one version of Sonic and not the other is just plain wrong. How is it impossible? People DO feel that way and they manage to express it weather it's right, wrong, or somewhere in between. 

Just because someone doesn't like one aspect of something doesn't mean that they can't be a fan, there is NOTHING in this world that is 100% perfect, and that includes Sonic. 
Art-Vandaley Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
His design didn't just change. They changed his personality. He was a radical dude. The title card for Sonic 2 captured his essence PERFECTLY. He was nothing but confidence! But then everything about him was altered. So, if you ask me to love Sonic for Sonic, I will ask you; which sonic are we talking about, here?
Channeleven Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
BBoth feel the same to me. I personally hated his original design. It was too cutesy and childish.
gamrgod9498 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013
I love them both, except for Sonic 06, that game just sucked.

So what you're saying is that no one's allowed to only like one variation of Sonic, and they don't actually like Sonic at all if they don't like every variation of Sonic? So I guess that according to your logic, if you like Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic CD, and Knuckles' Chaotix, then I HAVE to like Sonic 06, Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Riders, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Rush? So yeah, I guess your point is that in order to be a Sonic fan at all, you have to like EVERYTHING Sonic.
professorlayton22 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013
u missed the point
just dont bitch about the new or old sonic
not the games
but the character
