General SEGA Discussion / Re: Should Yuji Naka Return To Sonic?
« Last post by itsstillthinking1999 on November 17, 2017, 12:12:09 pm »
All good ideas! While i never hated forces like other people (I think people are over reacting to be honest) and have also enjoyed the boost gameplay i think its time to try something new. The only issue is that Sonic Team already tried that with Lost World and while i did enjoy the game, i think the issue most people had is that it lacked a solid structure and again did the "nostalgia" pandering of Generations with little original ideas. Whatever happens i hope that the next game is a step up from forces and having the "Big" three on the next project would not be a bad idea. While the gaming landscape has changed alot since Naka and the rest of the group have worked together, i think the results would be good if they did some work together.

Overrated doesn't mean a game is rubbish or bad. Case in point.. Sonic Adv II, not a bad game at all, but one that was vastly overrated at the time and was reviewed at the time when Sonic and Sonic Team had a lot a street cred.

Another game that was vastly overrated was Donkey Kong Country on the Snes and was very much like Sonic where people loved it more for its simple gameplay and ace gfx.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth
(3DS)

Etrian Odyssey V chronicles the quest of a new adventurer as he or she attempts to reach the crown of the towering Yggdrasil Tree. For it is said that whoever braves the dangers of the dreaded Yggdrasil Labyrinth and reaches the summit will have their greatest wish fulfilled. Each culture has their own myth, some say great power will be granted, others believe the great mysteries will be solved. Some believe the ultimate techniques can be mastered there, and a number believe the lost treasures can be found at the top of the Yggdrasil Tree's boughs. There's a reason why no one has ever reached the top. Dangerous creatures and terrifying FOEs roam the labyrinth on every floor, so prepare to test your mettle with challenging turn-based battles. Form your own party and partner up to unleash devastating attacks. Personalize your party to work to your advantage. With endless character customization, adventurers will cast and create their own party from four unique races and ten different classes to explore the uncharted labyrinth.

Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

(iOS, Android)

SEGA and HARDlight should be applauded for their efforts in the mobile space. Rather than cheapening the brand, their Sonic titles have provided quality mobile gaming experiences for years now, and Sonic Forces: Speed Battle is no exception. Those looking for a more hardcore, competitive racing experience will likely find its design unaccommodating, but for everyone else, Speed Battle is an engaging and robust racer worth sinking some time into.

General SEGA Discussion / Re: Should Yuji Naka Return To Sonic?
« Last post by OriginalName on November 15, 2017, 07:02:32 pm »
I think it'd be more effective to bring back Naoto Ohshima, because the core problem the team has seems to be figuring out just what the hell Sonic is and why people liked the games in the first place, just from a presentation level. That's honestly the main issue the series is facing -- figuring out how to present itself. Yuji Naka would be a great benefit though, because he has a mind for physics in programming, and I could see that aptitude being good for leading a team of programmers on a Sonic game. If I'm being honest, I think the unsung hero of the original Sonic Team was Hirokazu Yasuhara, the director and lead game designer for the Genesis games. I love Sonic CD, but his absence was sorely missed on that game and it shows in comments on its level design to this day.

The point I'm really trying to get around to is that Sonic Team found an incredible balance of talents and visions that came together to form a cohesive, brilliant unit. The current situation is a mess. I have a tendency to blame Takashi Iizuka because I think he has a lot of bad ideas, but the problem is much more complicated than that because game design is far more complicated today than it was when Sonic Team was formed. So in terms of fixing the gameplay... I'm not sure, but the gameplay really isn't all that bad. The issue is with presentation and direction.

Get everyone together and have them watch the Sonic OVA, go back to the roots and reacquaint yourself with the environmental story-telling of the Ohshima-centric Sonic CD and the original Sonic 1 level order (the settings originally went from least to most industrially developed but was changed around because Labyrinth was a bad second Zone), get input from Hirokazu Yasuhara and Mark Cerny, and COMMIT to going back to the roots and move forward organically from there. The "new" Sonic has been a failed experiment. And that's fine -- it happens in a creative field, and it even made a couple of good games, but the half-measure of reminding us that there was a version of Sonic that wasn't over-complicated, was visually unforgettable, had universally liked character design, had meaningfully implemented gameplay hooks, has not aged, and can still be relevant... and then presenting it as a gimmick side-product is missing the point by a mile.

Go back and commit to that Sonic. That's not a gimmick. That's your product, that's your legacy, that's what you need to live up to.

Yeah but what's getting me hyped is that if they let him take control of remaking these games, SEGA could have a decent comeback. Plus who knows what else they can come up with if they do these projects and it really takes off.

Lucasarts was closed and all games cancelled.

That's true but I figured that would only be temporarily. Plus Star Wars was more known for the movies than games, (but I loved the games as much as the next person) but SEGA is a gaming company, so I'm pretty sure that Disney wouldn't stop them from making games. If anything I think the funding from Disney would help SEGA.

To be fair though, that was already happing before the Disney buyout. Not that Disney have a great record after what they did to the likes of Climax
