  1. Sonic ’06 had God-Tier art direction and music. It’s not my preferred style but it undeniably rides the line between cartoon and reality really well, leaning into a fantasy vibe that mixes the two coherently. Presentation is the last of the game’s problems.

    >hedgehog in real life is silly
    This is true but I don’t care.

  2. Because Mario did it backed by good game design.

    People came to hate Sonic’s adventure setting as schlocky as they at the same time came to hate the gameplay for being schlocky. Most gamers will unironically accept ANYTHING you put in front of them if the mechanics are good. Case in point, Kingdom Hearts, and every game before the 6th generation

  3. the theme of the game was each continent he visited had a different art style. Whether you think it was executed well is a different matter, but that the styles clashed was intentional enough that it’s not really a point of criticism.

  5. The difference is Mario games do this kind of stuff to be silly and fun, while sonic games do this and expect to be taken seriously

  6. Mario could do everything Sonic does verbatim and would still get a 10/10 because he’s Mario. That’s just the reality of it. I’ve come to accept it at this point.

    Sometimes I wonder if people woudln’t hate Sonic as much if he was a cartoon human.
