Yuji Naka is happy with new Sonic games

The guys from Destructoid have recently posted a interview with Yuji Naka, asking him what he thinks of Sonic’s current games and if he got to play them..

“Yes, I’ve played them a bit. I’m happy to see that Sonic is still growing after my departure. All the people that worked under me are still continuing the legacy of Sonic, and I’m glad to see that as well.

Realize that next year Sonic will be 20 years old. I look at it this way: 20 years of age is old enough to go out on your own, not relying on your father anymore. In that way, it’s good to take a step back and see what Sonic does from now.”

It is sad to see Yuji Naka not having any interest in doing a 20th anniversary game and ‘moving on’ from the franchise. What do you guys think?

    After the '15th anniversary game' I don't want to see more of those commemorative games.

    Sonic's reputation in the last 10years went downhill, but I hope, in the next 10 years, he can get throught his 'ill-fame' and give more creditability for his fans. We're still waiting for a new Sonic game that causes as much (positive) impact as the 'Sonic Adventure' game for the Dreamcast.

    I think Sonic Colours and Sonic 4 are big steps in the right direction from games like Heroes, Sonic 06 and Unleashed.

    Yuji Naka involved or not.

    Sonic Unleashed was a excellent game, and based on the future games coming in the next year or so I would say the Sonic titles are looking to be pretty solid.

    Unfortunatelly the game reviewers do not agree with you

    Sure, you're going to say "I don't care about their opinion."

    But It's terrible for sonic's reputation to have so many negative reviews.

    Game reviewers got angry about the werehog and other changes that broke the momentum. Most of the reviews, if you view them, praised the graphics and Sonic levels.

    The sad part is that more than 60% content wise (much higher, time wise) is Werehog. Which they hated.

    So the 'Sonic only' games are a step in the right direction.
