Mania is looking golden. And the price is cheaper than I was expecting as well.

Really looking forward to this. If you'd said to mid-90's Zero that he'd one day enjoy playing Sonic games on Nintendo consoles, he'd have laughed you out of town.

Mania just looks stunning, I wish there was a physical version releasing.

Amazing. Like, even the designs are more appealing to kids imo. Why would anyone pick/play Forces over this? Forces looks so so awful, not just in comparison, just as a game. Is it me, or have all the modern sonic games got this dark tone to them now? And I don't mean like, Majora's Mask kind of dark atmosphere, or like blood or something. Just look at how boring and dull the Forces trailer looks. Like, I get it, it's edgy, the city's being destroyed right? Oh, I wonder who the villain's gonna be that could have done something so bad right? so 'epic' and 'grand' of an adventure right? No. It just looks like a brown mess. Now look at Mania. How bright and colourful it is. It exudes personality and something creative. And you get to play as Tails and Knuckles again too! In the modern sonic games, you'll be lucky if you get to play as a 2nd sonic, let alone any other character.

Well, the easiest answer is that not everyone prefers 2D games, so Forces obviously would appeal to them even with Mania being everything that Sonic should be.
Modern Sonic these days just seems confused on everything, even if the gameplay can be fun at times.

Honestly, I think both games look really good and will get both of them.

I like the old school 2D Sonic games, but I also like the modern Sonic games too. I'm a bit bored of the narative amongst some that there hasn't been a good Sonic game since the mega-drive, there's been plenty Adventure 2, Colours, Generations, Lost World, even the day levels of Night and Day were pretty good. I'm not that interested in customisizable Sonic - but if in Forces we just get a serviceable unofficial Generations sequel - I'd be really happy.

I really enjoyed the 2D/3D hybrid design introduced in Unleashed; and after mastering several of the levels to the point of being able to maintain a near-constant speed boost, I found myself repeatedly returning to the game because it was both exhilarating and fun. Learning a level, honing your reflexes, and being able to just boost through in a clean speed run is among my favourite experiences in gaming. That is why I care about Forces.

We've also barely seen anything from it, so it's too early to write off things like art and creativity - though I don't doubt that it won't boast the same level of 'coolness' as what you see in the games of yore. They do tend to ground the modern games more, besides Colours.

Regarding Sonic Mania, it does look - and sound - amazing.

Of course not writing it off, it's not even out yet, just the trailer didn't give a good impression at all.
