SEGA =/= Sonic

#1 Posted by whoozwah (52 posts) -

A lot of people tend to equate the success of SEGA with the success of Sonic Team developed games. This is not accurate. SEGA has released so many great games that have nothing to do with Sonic. As an example, here are some upcoming SEGA titles that look promising:

  • Valkyrie Chronicles
  • Madworld
  • Bayonetta
  • Stormrise
  • Golden Axe: Beast Riders

Also, there are quite a few SEGA developed or published titles out there that are quite awesome including:

  • Panzer Dragoon Orta
  • Jet Set Radio Future
  • Outrun 2006
  • Virtua Fighter series

This may not change your mind. I don't really care if it does. But it needs to be pointed out.

Later,
Dave

I'd be diggin a new Jet Set Radio. What I really want is a new Panzer Dragoon on Wii. I could just see it being so damn sweet.

Panzer is a killer hit.

The way I see it, your aim reticule would be set up like it is in Resident Evil 4 on Wii. Point and shoot basically. The D-pad would control which angle the camera is facing

Well of course they equate Sonic with Sega, he is the mascot! Would a Nintendo console really be Nintendo if a Mario game wasn't there?

But I agree, there are many different Sega developed games that are all awesome and do tend to get overlooked. Just looking at the line up of games coming, besides Beast Rider, there dosn't really seem to be anything traditionally Sega on the horizon. Then again, it's good they are creating new and interesting games, like Madworld, rather than making constant sequels!

Sega's one a true mascot is Alex Kidd. NEVER FORGET!

The Dreamcast was so dope for it's time. Sonic is Sega but I'm glad the whole, "You have to have a mascot," thing went away.

Sega really just needs to take Sonic away from Sonic Team. They've proven again and again they have no idea what they're doing. Unleashed is probably their last chance not to screw it up, so if they don't pull it off this time, it's all over for them.

Just let Dimps make them all from now on. Those guys can make Sonic games.

Seriously, the Sonic Advance and Sonic Rush games are the only ones worth giving a shit about the past 7 years, and they were developed bu Dimps. And now the only upcoming Sonic game that promises to really deliver is being produced by Bioware. Sonic Team is a joke, no wonder Yuji Naka ditched them.

Sega always seems like they are at the verge of some new age of awesome but until now everything never seems to pan out.
