I feel like the sonic games arent as good as they used to be. The classics (sonic 1,2,3,and CD) set the tone of the franchise. But these days, Sonic Team only releases spinoffs and bad games. But i thought Sonic Unleashed was pretty solid. Do you think the franchise is declining??

May be a little bit declined as the sonic franchise but at the same time it is a real classic fo video games and i am still seen about it with funny and simpathy!! i think sonic unleashed was good as videogames and sonic as character very may be,as for many others characters in games,have a little bit low profile in this period but not so much..sonic still alive good

yup i think that they've finally got something with sonic unleashed. As long as they dont put too many characters in one game then it should be fine ^_^

I think the Sonic Team is putting too much time and effort into the games' storylines and character appearances. The games themselves are still pretty fun, but the mini-movies and story things are just cheesy.

Wow. Three bad games and suddenly the whole franchise is declining? Of course I'm talking about Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Riders, and Sonic '06. Anyway, the rest of the games were great. The main problem is that the beginning games were so good, nothing can beat them. The only game that came close was Sonic Adventure 2 Battle.

Sonic games know a days agreeably are not quit as original because of the day and age of gaming we are in. But in my opinion sonic is a classic, and thusly he, amy, tails, knuckels, big, cream, and shadow will never die.

Yes i agree. The new sonic games are not that good since most of them have the same gameplay. Graphics is also not that good since these new sonic games are now newer consoles. I think the sonic franchise is really declining.

I think its going down hill, the sonic team has some pretty awesome ideas but it doesnt work to well when it comes time to play them, i just bought sonic adventures for the Dreamcast the other day and it seems to be a pretty awesome game.

It is getting worse and i think Sonic team is doing it on purpose. Sonic team wants to make other games for once but sega keeps forcing them to make Sonic games. but on the dreamcast Sega had other companies to make games so Sonic team was able to make more than just sonic games which is why sonic adventure 1 and 2 were fun. Now that they dropped out of the console race they have to rely on Sonic team. they were in the middle of making a game (can't remember what it is) and sego forced them to drop it so they can make sonic heroes, after one Sega ask for another. this is why the series is declining. They want to work on others, and they have almost not time to think of a story line. Sega doesn't care though because they know that no matter how crappy a game is little kids will it this stuff up.
