First off, I said I think their games suck, I don;t know how that translated to hate. Also, me and a friend bring up Epic Yarn all the time, and he showed me the sales, and it bombed, even then, nobody can defend the game, all anyone can say it "you need to try it first" or "it sold well", but since you're the only one hwo said it had an unique style, let me go on record by saying it doesn't automatically mean good. Also, I don't listen to reviewers, they say whatever they want about a game for their own agenda. :P
I like how nobody who brings up that rivalry just can't say that Sonic won it, it was more then just being popular, Sonic and Sega flat out beat Nintendo till Donkey Kong came back, and won due to graphics, where Sega responded with Vectorman. I would go into the rest of your message, but this isn't about what Nintendo has done for games or their history, it's what they have been doing recently, and how the games they make now can only succeed through name and not much else, plus, all the things they've done to ruin it for the guy who wrote that article I posted, and he IS, or was an NIntendo fan:
This topic wasn't about being exclusive at all, it's about Sonic being made to please Nintendo fans, and not Sega fans, but of course, Nintendo fan wouldn't have a problem with that either, despite the games they're making now are either killing their characters or barely that good. Also, Sonic Colors sold well because more fans who were butthurt about what had been going on with the Sonic series needed a game that catered to them just to be good. Instead of telling the devs to make their games better and blaming Sonic's failures on their own poor dev skills, they blamed it on the characters, storylines, and having dark elements in his game, despite dark elements being present even back in the day, from the games, cartoons, and comics, but even with that, Sonic was always an all-ages titles, even Shadow was rated E10(Smash bros Brawl was even rated T), so the age range had nothing to do with this. Also, Sonic games may sale well on Nintendo titles, but you have to ask WHY that is, and it's because Sonic lost his appeal with the rest of the games, so nobody is going to buy his game when they're not even cool anymore, but the funny thing is, I've heard a few times that SA2 had been one of the best selling title on PSN, top 5 for a while actually, but usually in debates like this, people never wanna bring that up. Of course, SA2 still ha the original appeal of Sonic, I mean really, did you think a game like Sonic Colors was gonna sale well on the same shelf as COD, Gears of War, Prototype, Assassin's creed, and Saints Row? It's about appeal, and Sega of Japan keeps killing it off in order to appeal to Nintendo fans, the people still playing those bad title Nintendo makes nowadays, claiming them to be good or down playing their own failures.
