      Now someone please tell me what this is about audio issues in the Sonic Adventures? Dubbing-mistakes aside, it sounded perfectly fine in the last 10 years I've grown to love the second game and grown to despise the firsst one. :B

      I loved SA1/2... as a kid but today I just can't get back into the games... I can still replay OoT when I wish to despite how badly that has aged and enjoy it. (Though I do admit it has some faults I didn't get as a kid.) The design in general is actually pretty bad in them trying to ignore the audio issues, the camera was pretty bad with some stages pretty much being hold forward to win, not to mention I feel the multiple story gimmick did harm the games more than helped them with the stages being designed primarily for Sonic with the other 5 as afterthoughts and artificial length, and if the comment section during the game grump's playthrough of SA1 shows anything... people only really enjoyed Sonic's story while anything short of his was considered filler before the actual final story as Super Sonic. And I feel like anyone with nostalgia goggles for these two games only recalls the multiple story gimmick and how 'great' it was to play as many different characters when Sonic 3D titles have done better with only having Sonic playable... not to mention if SA1/2 only focused on a single or at least two character the game's general quality could've been better with it being specialized for him, I simply don't think SA3 would sell to the modern crowd if it was done with a similar story gimmick not to mention. I also advise they outright drop Sonic Boom as soon as possible since that name is already heavily damaged by the first two games. TL;DR SA1 and 2 were awful (aside from the addictive chao garden..), Sonic Team needs to take lessons from Generations/Colors/Unleashed.

      I think too many people are hung up on the past with the Adventure games, with a majority of newer fans coming into the Sonic series during the first two Adventure games since they were the first 3D Sonic games. The Adventure games are not really that good (the audio mixing in SA2 is REALLY bad), I think they are a great first step in making a good Sonic game and at the time were good games but they have not aged well at all. I think Sega is needing to take the 3D games a step in the direction with continuing on what Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations and Sonic Unleashed (Day Stages) already did and go from there. Also, fun fact, Sonic Unleashed was called Sonic World Adventure in Japan. With Sonic Boom, I was interested to see what a Western Developer could do with the series and leading up to the it I was looking forward to it. The redesigns didn't bother me much and the majority of them made sense, until I saw the gameplay then played it myself I saw it was just, yunk but no reason to bring up that again. I'm not really sure what Sega is going to do with Sonic since we really haven't heard anything with the exception of the new Sonic Boom game.

      What, then, in your opinion, would constitute a Sonic Adventure 3 to you?
