I am not like most fans of Sonic the Hedgehog.
I do not worship the Classic Era.
I believe that the Werehog is badass and fun to use.
I enjoy it when Sonic does something new.
I believe that Sonic is versatile and can be used for almost anything. His potential is limitless.
I prefer it when there is a story to go along with a game.
I believe that the cast would benefit from a large amount of character development and break from their standard types, somewhat.
I miss Elise the Third and would like for her to return.
I believe that following the crowd for fear of getting flamed or hated is cowardly and will not get you anywhere.
I like each member of the Sonic cast equally and would not get rid of any of them.
I believe that innovation is a must for Sonic to stay relative, but I also understand that the series needs to win back its older fans first.
I am ashamed of my part in the insanity the fandom is now infamous for.
I feel that the series has reached the limit of what it can do as a platformer and should explore other genres.
I enjoy Sonic Next despite its faults and believe that what it manages to pull out, it does very well.
I feel that there are multiple facets of the Sonic mythos that need to be explored.
I do not care about the difference between “Robotnik” and “Eggman”. Both names belong to the same mad scientist and fit him perfectly in their own way.
I believe that those for whom have nothing left BUT Sonic need to broaden their scope. The Sonic series will continue to change and won’t always go in the direction you want it to. Getting bitter and jaded will not change anything in your favor in the long run.
I would like nothing more than to expand on what has been done so far and bring about the games’ full potential.
I believe that the series has not yet peaked.
I know, acknowledge and fully understand both sides of each argument.
I believe that, instead of dividing each other, we should all be united.
My name is Ryan Mitchell Brown, and this is my stance as a longtime fan of Sonic the Hedgehog.
