'Points at you with both fingers' 'Clicks tongue' This guy gets it! Everyone, show your appreciation for the guy who isn't butt-hurt about change! 'Whole auditorium bursts out in applause' 'People cry and throw roses at you as you take a bow' Danny Devito: This kid's gonna go places! Me: Agreed Danny. Agreed.
Sad thing is, I shouldn't be treating it like a big deal. But I am.
Im not a brony [Well, used to anyways] I quickly accepted the change of Twlight getting wings, because it was SPOILED to me. I HATED the new designs of Sonic boom at first, I then adapted to the changes, as my friends cannot.
Funny story really, I once Rping as Sonic from Sonic boom. . .One of my closest friends just came up to me and said. "You should really let go of Sonic, his fanbase is dead" Which I do agree with her, His fanbase IS kinda dead, but what she said was un-reasonable, She was telling me to start disliking the fandom because she doesn't like it. But I saw no one else get annoyed by it.
Many people have been annoyed at the changes Sonic has gone through in the years, not just with his design, but with his gameplay, even though it's not changed by much. Sega just added a 3D environment, a homing attack, and more buddies to hang around him. I should know what I'm talking about. I've played the games on consoles, most of the main ones included Sonic Cd, Unleashed, Black Knight, etc. And they all still deliver what made Sonic so awesome. His additude and his speed. Even Sonic Boom has brought those two. Yeah, it's got a Jak and Dexter styled gameplay to it, but it was advertised as this from the beginning. Playing the game and getting unreasonable mad at it for reasons you didn't have a problem with before playing it is a little unfair. I've only played the 3DS demo, and I do like it, but don't love it. Also, your friend telling you to stop liking something because she doesn't ? That's one of the biggest crimes against 'Freedom of Speech' anyone can commit. I've actually had this discussion with another girl on this site a few days ago, and we both thought it is stupid. I still do.
Yes, but most of the fandom is NEVER pleased, it just proves how humans can be so selfish, it saddens me really. I'd prefer 3D then the Classics. Also, would'nt you get lonely going on adventures, saving the world? I'd get really lonely. Sonic is my favorite able Gaming icon because of the choices of games and styles you can. [Black Knight, Secret rings, Unleashed, ect] and not like the "Save the Princess, yada yada, she's in another Castle!" and I do Like Mario, even his choices of games. But they are not as great as Sonic's. [Mario Fanboy's lets not TRY and make YoshiWii1 happen again. . .] Also
"And they all still deliver what made Sonic so awesome. His additude and his speed." Wouldn't that be one of the keys of playing the game?. Instead of just looking at the designs and saying "Oh no! Change!, were all gonna die!"
Yeah, its a terrible thing, a close friend who told me to do that. I live in Australia, means that we enjoy the freedom, ALOT. She really hit me hard with that, and us Australians can get violent with words =.|.
I lost connection with the show a while back, but this is also what she said.
"Sonic can get reckted by Rainbowdash, he is completely SLOW compared to Rainbowdash!"
I didn't like her opinion, I HATED it. But I respected it, and I replied.
"I Respect your opinion, But I have to dissagree, Sonic has been fighting since he was about 5-10, and, He can run past the sound barrier, just like in Sonic Colours how that he can out run a Blackhole. Like Omega stated. From What I know, Rainbowdash only flies around the Speed of Sound, not beyond. The only fighting I have seen Rainbowdash so far is just yelling at people that she would do stuff, but I don't see her doing anything"
She THEN decides to go on, NOT listening to me, NOT even respecting MY opinion, and goes on about Rainbowdash can go PASS the speed of Light!? [I may even be behind since I lost interest] She keeps yapping on about facts that are not even true [In my eyes, Like I said before, lost connection to the show]
Any fandom has those bunch of people that base their 'loyalty' based on how the show/movie/person/group started out, but can't seem to enjoy any of the newer content based on the changes the have in contrast to the original, or just do something that doesn't involve anything they're interested in (Getting famous by parodying an already existing source material vs. Creating original content with the fame gained from using something else), but that's how people can be, unfortunately, but thankfully, not everyone. One of the greatest thing about the Sonic franchise is being able to change the tone of the game (Adventure games compared to the Storybook games) while still keeping that familiar aspect of the Sonic games found in most of his titles. The Unleashed game had the day missions which is just Sonic running as fast he can go, while the night missions had his Were self beating the crap out of all of those robots and gooey monsters, keeping in the formula while adding something new to counter-balance it, making it feel like a new Sonic game! It ones of the reasons I love them. So similar, yet present a new adventure with each new game. Also, yeah, Australia's awesome. In terms of freedom and acceptance of anyone just trying to live their life, it's probably one of the best out there. But, anywhere in the world, you'll find people who aren't accepting of your views. That doesn't necessarily make them a bad, just insensitive to a differing opinion. I assume your friend is a nice girl, but might have gone on the bandwagon of a view shared by many while not really letting her real point of view shine through. I'll also assume that she wasn't born in the early 90's, so she couldn't have grown up side by side with Sonic's early years, and most likely played one of the 3D games as one of her first. I believe what got her to think like that is trying to force itself onto you; An overly popular, unfair opinion that too many people are accepting with little thought as to why that is. It's that whole need to belong and be accepted socially that's inside all of us to a degree. And yeah, it's pretty rude and childish to ignore clear, well spoken evidence, then proceed to shove your opinion down someone's throat for the sake of holding on to the hope that your character is better than someone else's. No one is better than anyone. Just because I think Sonic is the best gaming mascot, doesn't automatically mean I look down on Mario. I respect them both, though Sonic a little more.
Yes, it was a really long one.Sonic was pretty much my whole life [lol] I found out about him after 2007, when I found out about "Shadow the Hedgehog" and I got hooked, also, She's 15, and No, she's not really nice in my opinon, Whenever I rp as Sonic, she either does very little contact with me, or start this thing called "Sonic Abuse" Its either beating the living CRAP out of Sonic with the god mod, or getting Rainbowdash to go in and beat the crap out of him. I have Rp'd with a brony, and we made Sonic and Rd have a bond [Not Gf, but like buddies] So you would really understand Why Sonic would loose in THAT fight,in any fight that involve him and his friends [apart from Knuckles really e-e]. Because He wont hurt his friends. She then goes and whinning to me.
"Why isn't Sonic fighting back?" "Why is Sonic so weak?" And her other stuff. She even did this. -I fly making five Sonic rainbooms in three seconds- I TRIED to point her out false, But I was HIT with About FIVE bronies just for saying the truth! From what I know, it took her about a minute to preform the Sonic rainboom, and in order for her to do FIVE Sonic rainbooms, she would have to be atleast HALF light speed in order! [Im not a thinker really ] She makes Rainbowdash have automatic wins in the races they have, but Sonic can clearly do Sonic booms when he is BORED. What also annoys me the fact that she is SO full of herself. ..This was there Convo.
Friend: "Hey, are there any Good Rpers here?" "She": "No, there is pretty much only two good ones here." Friend: "Who?" "She": "Me and [Username]" Friend: "Anyone else?" "She": "No, without me and him, the Rp's here would be out of wack, and f-cked"
Wow, She's that full of herself! That she could really say that. I can say this, Her skills in Rping, ain't really that good, they look the beginners Rping ways. How I used to start, now I use Quotations, LONG action sentences to at least make a scene, What she does is basic,
-I fly- -I eat it-
I even have friends who do this.
-I spectate the metal, as it shines in the sunlight, I am not sure to see if this is just some piece of junk-
and the Worst thing about her, She does S-X Rps! Even though ALOT of children go on this game. ALOT!. Even [Username] does them with her. Even if me and another friend are doing a Rp, [Username] would interupt, just to do some "Love" Rp, which is just FEMALE ON FEMALE RHAPE. I don't even understand why they don't even fight. [Username[ tried to start a Rhape Rp, When I was Rping as a seven year old girl...SEVEN.YEAR.OLD.GIRL. Doesn't that sound kinda strange ta ya?
