@deadpool#1fanjon:
Sonic advance series is pretty good 
Sonic rush is good 
And Sonic Colors has been called the best sonic game in ten years. 
But yeah, I can see were your getting at.

I thought it was pretty much accepted by fans that Sonic hasn't really been good for years now. 
 
I personally don't like any Sonic, btw, just going by observations.

The only I've ever played is the original one from 1990 or 1991, it was on the Sega Genesis. Sonic & Mario Olympic games were good.

what edge? seriously what edge?
 
Sonic has never been edgy or cool. only pre-teen girls and furry lovers like Sonic.

After the Sonic Adventure series, Sonic started going downhill but Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and Sonic: Colors were actually pretty good. I myself actually lost interest in Sonic because of how crappy his games were and because I wanted Sega to make games for some of my other favorite franchises that haven't had a game in years. I started getting back into Sonic a few months ago by playing some of the classic Genesis games and the good 3D games. I also started reading the Sonic comic series by Archie which is pretty good as well. I hear many Sonic fans who hate most games nowadays read the comics instead.

I used to love sonic my favorite is sonic adventure battle 2, but after directors cut to me the games began to lose their edge, the battle system and voice acting has really lost its edge.

Didn't it lose its edge when they made it 3D?

No. Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 were good. After Sonic Adventure 2 the series started going down though.

That is not true at all. Lots of Sonic fans out there don't fit that description at all.

Sonic colors was really good i guess sonic is really coming back out from that hard time. 
But,if the put in characters from the comics like Enerjak or the D.E.L it make the games much better.

Simply putting those guys in the game won't make it better. They've added lots of characters to many recent games and they were terrible because they haven't really added anything to the gameplay. If they are put in, they should be used in a way to help enhance the gameplay. Enerjak I think would be a really good boss battle if done right.

@MrDirector786:      The gameplay has to become better anyway but I can see there really working on it now, like i said sonic colors was pretty good so there working on it. The characters will also shape people who only play the game's thoughts about them and plus it can also affect their view on main characters such as sonic.

Hopefully, the games will continue be as good as Colors and Sonic 4. That is true about the characters though. Enerjak would a fitting boss battle for Knuckles to fight if you ask me, implying that Dimitri will be the one who has the mantle of Enerjak.

Recently, Sonic Colors and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 were pretty good. But most games that came out after Sonic Adventure 2 were pretty bad.
#22 Posted by Psi Optic (15 posts) - - Show Bio

Out of all the Sonic games made I only seem to like the old ones
 
Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic CD, Sonic Spinball
 
Sonic 4 is ok i guess but not spectacular. I didn't play Sonic Colors but want to try it.
 
Sonic Adventure is eh but I guess it was cool when the Dreamcast was new.

I liked the older Sonic games that came from Sega Genesis, but I agree that after Sonic Adventure 2 came out, the games got really bad although I haven't played Sonic Colors or Sonic 4 yet.
