Lol. Too little too late. Instead of de-listing games, they mayhap should have put more effort into their earlier attempts.

Yeah, I don't see how suddenly making it harder to get a hold of bad Sonic games is going to make people think, "Oh, these unplayable messes are actually precious gems! I just couldn't see it before because there were too many on the shelf!"

What I find more funny is their reasoning for all this. The "overflow" isn't what's hurting the Sonic brand - it's the stupid design decisions they lump into some of them.

Seems clear it's both -- obviously having a ton of great Sonic titles on the shelves wouldn't really be an issue. Emphasis on "poor."

They just need to stop being so "creative" with the gameplay. Werehog? Knight? Stop it. I want to just simply run and roll!

^That's what Sonic 4 seems to be, thankfully.

Black Knight wasn't that bad in terms of concept, the game just had rubbish gameplay. It had all the show but none of the play. So I think you're confusing "creative" with "lack of effort" when it comes to the core of the game.

Sonic was (and still could be) a great video game... All they need to do is let him be himself and stop chang him into a werehog (Unleashed), a knight (Black Knight), a team player (Heroes), or into anything else. Just keep him as a super fast hedgehog. If it wasn't broke why did you try to fix it.

Heroes was actually a pretty decent Sonic title. Great music, classic gameplay, and some differentiation. Switching to Speed, Power, or Flight on the fly was pretty cool. I sure enjoyed it when compared to the other titles they've been producing.

Heroes was good! Some issues but still classic sonic adventure style gameplay. Then came sonic and the secret rings. :/

I had Sonic Heroes for the PS2 and whenever I started to have fun a glitch would happen out of nowhere. I tried multiple copies and multiple PS2s but it kept getting me. On days where it was running good it was awesome but those days where to far in between. I didn't encounter any problems when I played it on the GC. I also liked the graphics, music, and gameplay of Sonic Heroes. I probably just had a run of bad luck. I still stand by my statements on the other games.

The gamecube version didn't have that much glitches in it.

I got to say that's wrong that people have saying bad things about Sonic to begin with and to make it harder to find them. That just means that new gamers won't just know about him. We would have to tell them. Most hard to find games end up dieing out. I don't want to see Sonic the Hedgehog die out. He's been my favorite forever.
