To be clear: I’ve been playing Sonic since I was like. Five. So please do not pull that gatekeeping stuff on me if that’s what the “classic Sonic fans” bit is about. If it isn’t, Im not saying I don’t RESEPECT that a lot of people are super into Sonic Mania. It’s just not for me.
You say my description isn’t accurate but basically all I’ve seen of the game is stages that already exist. And I really don’t want to play Green Hill Zone for the ten thousandth time. Even if the game does have a lot of new stages and the remixes are just outliers for marketing… I still don’t really care. There’s no need for me to buy this game when from the looks of it I can just play Sonic 1, 2, ,3 or CD and have basically the same experience.
If other people are into this and see value in it that I don’t, rad. And I don’t say that to be condescending - I clearly just don’t have whatever it is Sonic Mania fans have that’s making them excited.
