SEGA News Bits: Are chao gardens returning to Sonic games?

The Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account recently held a poll asking fans what their favorite Sonic game feature was. Among the choices was the chao garden, which ended up winning in a landslide. Given Sonic Forces came and went with a mixed response, it’s interesting that SEGA is now asking such a question. On this SEGA News Bits, we share our thoughts on the original chao gardens, what this poll could mean and what SEGA could do to update them.

    Hopefully not. That kind of features have no place in Sonic games. They should focus their resources to make the games good.

      Yea, we shouldn’t have any fun in Sonic games, even less so when it’s widely beloved features from the best received titles of the franchise.

    • Albert says:

      On the contrary, the games should be made fun first and foremost, something Chao garden will contribute nothing to.

      And the Chao garden is from some of the worst games in the series.

    …But if the audience likes it, then you’ll see them again. I don’t know how well it would fly today, but in 2001, kids loved the Chao gardens.

    I’d be down for it, be a great distraction for when people pick apart the games. Seriously though I’d love for them to return, worried about how much of an affect it would have on the overall game’s development though.

    Sadly i was more of JSR/F person than a sonic person back in the day, so i missed out on Sonic adventure 1 and 2. But friends i had, who all had gamecubes, loved this feature in the game. They know all the ins and outs of the game to collect the stupid animals. Its literally one of those things in games that kids do because they have an ungodly amount of free time. The people saying they want this feature are saying so off pure nostalgia. i think if it was put into the game no one would complete it or even use this feature, waste of time, but i can say most of the sonic games since have been a waste of time.
