Fake gameplay footage shows what Sonic, to many, should look like

  As much as I'd like to have a real opinion on the mater of whether or not the franchise should kick the bucket, I like to think that any once-loved franchise should have at least one or more two good games be put out before it kicks the bucket. For example, I don't think its flattering to see Sonic go out on 'hogwolf' and a guy singing about his LSD experience. I know Sega won't be killing off its cash cow anytime soon, but they should learn a few things from the next video.

 

    
This is one guy in 3DS Max and After Effects. Pretty awesome. Is this the kind of Sonic the gaming community wants to see?
 
(This is the part where cans of worms get opened and 3/4 of the population call for its demise. Fun fun.)

That is just the original sonic but 3D. Sonic is something that does not need to exist in 2010. If you want a Sonic game just go play 2.

...and how exactly is this significantly different from Sonic 4?

Wow if they made a game like that, i'm sure it will sell. The graphics looks great.

That's gorgeous. This has always been one of my favorite Sonic stages because of the atmosphere. If they could make this in 3D like the video...amazing!

Meh. Reminds me too much of Sonic 3D Blast.

Better graphics won't make Sonic better.  Except for shallow people and desperate Sonic fans.

...which in turn, reminds me that I really want a Battletoads HD remake, and the circle is complete.

It needs to be faster.  That's what Sonic is about, SPEED.

I just want them to ditch the Sonic franchise all together at this point.  It really is done with now.

That looked cool but yeah, needs more speed
