Re: Are Sonic's best days gone?
Ha ha, very true. IGN somehow gave Unleashed a WORSE rating that Sonic 2006. Yeah. That game. I haven't even played it and I get furious at it XD
Here's what I look for;
I don't really count a "consensus" to be honest. He he. But graphics are pretty low on my score. Story is the highest (which is where Generations lost a lot of points). Gameplay is important (again, Generations lost some points). BGM (music helps make a game. SEGA never falters here!).
Most games now have good graphics, so I don't really mind.
But this way of thinking probably explains why Quake (1996 PC game) is my favorite game ever, not so much for story but for BGM and gameplay.
