Classic Sonic Is Overrated by Hero-T Classic Sonic Is Overrated by Hero-T
Okay, well, here's another stamp. But this one has a little more of a rant attached to it.

Quickly, turn back now. Before it's too late!

...

I warned ya.

Alright, well, if you know anything about me, you'll know that I'm a fan of Pokemon. My favorite Generation is generation 5. Black and White. And Generation 5 is often considered prime targeting practice by a group called Genwunners, a group of fans that only love Gen 1, and think that Pokemon should have died after that (Stamp expectation in the future?). Sonic is no different. There are a group of Sonic fans that hate every new installment of the franchise, no matter what, but will always praise the classics as the greatest thing in the series.

And they're as far as I'm concerned, wrong.

I love the modern games much more then I do the classics. They're better then the 2D ones in many aspects. Story, characters, music, setting, and of course, designs. The Modern designs are better then the classic ones, with them fitting more for the characters and seeming less like old cartoons. As you can tell, I was pissed off when it came to the "BAWW, GREEN EYES!!!1!ONE!!" fan cry.

Kinda feel like I'm beating a dead horse, mainly because I kinda am, now with the whole "Sonic Boom" phase going on, (Which let me just say, I have not been more excited for a game since Black Knight) but I want my voice to be heard. So, here ya go.

Well of cause he is many people still pretend that this are the only good sonic games and try to use arguments against the newer games that just as well can be used against the classics but unfortunately no reviewer has the balls to actually point out the horrible flaws of the classics.
A few examples:

Sonic adventure 2 sucks because only 1/3 of the game is actually fun. Well funny this is same can be said about sonic 1 with just 2 zones of the 6 being actually fun and this also happen to be the shortest in the game.

Sonic advance games suck because of the many mean spirited spikes and death pits. Well sonic 2 pretty much invented mean spirited enemy placement were springs throw you right into enemy attacks that you couldn't see coming and do I really have to talk about the enemy placement in Metropolis Zone and how could forget the pit in Mystic cave zone with is especially as super sonic more annoying than all pits in sonic advance 1 combined. 

Moder sonic games are buggy that makes them bad. Because spikes don't ignore you recovery phase in sonic 1 and the game doesn't freeze when you turn super over the goal post in Sonic 2 and enemy's don't have barley functional hit boxes in metropolis zone or the sonic 2 final boss or getting pressed into walls by moving objects forcing you to wait for the timer to run out in all classic games.

the camera is bad in the modern games. yet you praise the classics for having sonic run faster then the camera and so show just how fast he is when this at the same time makes playing near impossible.

I thing I made my point clear here.

You made an error here. You say classic Sonic is overrated, but you have his design from Sonic 3 on the stamp. The classic Sonic that's overrated is Sega of Japan's version of him, which is only present in Sonic Generations, seeing how the features on his design are nothing like what we had in Sonic 1.

I grew up with the DX Port of Sonic Adventure which was my first game despite its OBVIOUS flaws. I respect the classic Ganges but some people do glorify them a little too much. My favorite game from the classic era isn't even the obvious choices it's Sonic CD.

Sonic Fans need to realise that not every Classic Sonic game is a flawless masterpiece. And rabid Modern fans cannot apply the "You have to get used to it" rule to every Modern game that gets blasted for it's Gameplay or Story.

I can go on to say that I go out of my way to play the Classic's more often than the Modern series, but the Classic's have their share of flops, just like the Modern series. Doesn't justify that the fact that almost every Classic Sonic fan is seen this way, but I can't change unjustified, inaccurate stereotypes/opinions.

The hatred the Classic series gets because of rabid Classic Fans is just as infuriating as the Modern games being let off for nearly everything by rabid fans of that Era.

Poor Sonic, Classic or Modern, he just can't win.

Yeah, I think Classic Sonic is overrated, I've played the classics and it wasn't that enjoyable. (though I played it on the PC with an Xbox controller, so purists might attack me for this)

I guess nostalgia can make people hate newer things, especially the Genwunners

I don't find classic (younger is a better word, he's the same character) Sonic to be overrated, he's rated high enough, but Modern (Current age Sonic) is underrated, should rated the same as his younger self, and the Sonic Boom Sonic (that one actually makes sense) is the coolest.
But that's just my opinion
