Liking or Praising flaws by Psyco-The-Frog Liking or Praising flaws by Psyco-The-Frog
Apparently, because talking about 06 without being ignorant is a crime, I had someone claiming that me calling 06 good(when I said it was flawed and never denied them), is the same as someone saying "Sonic Boom is the best thing to ever happen to Sonic. Thing is, I call 06 good for everything else about the game not concerning it's flawed mechanics, which even then were no big deal and played 98% of the game without any glitches. The flaws are mainly the 3 hedgehogs being slow, Tails and Rouge's bomb throwing that needed to be worked on more, and Knuckles bad hit detection. That's liking a game despite the flaws.

What one person tried to claim was that it was the same as someone saying "Boom is the best in the series", which is so far from the truth. As I said, I like 06 for it's other qualities outside of the gameplay, which still worked anyway, however the person who wrote the article I was referring to about Boom was praising the actual flaws, pretty much taking the bullshit Boom does and over glorifying them, like Knuckles being a "lovable oaf" as if that's some shit to white knight. Sorry, but that is a sign of having bad taste, even when someone else tried to claim they have good taste, when you claiming that shit is good, you have no room to try and get mad at the statement.

THIS SO MUCH! The Non-Boom, actually awesome and engaging Sonic was such a good and progressive series, and these people reach SO DAMN FAR to find things wrong with it. I'm just so sick and tired of it. 

And Sonic is not the only series I know of that has gotten this treatment. I've seen plenty more stuff I'm into where people reach so damn far to find things wrong with them, even the smallest and most insignificant things.

I'm not gonna say the Sonic we love was flawless, but bashing it for any little tiny reason that can be thought of is too much, especially when said reasons don't condemn the whole series. Not everything needs to be dissected down for Problematic Content. This is one of the ways that good series turn bad. Please learn how to chill sometime.

Both games are awful, anyone who likes either of them for whatever reason can't be taken seriously.

There is one little sentence in this that bothers me.

"Sorry, but that is a sign of having bad taste, even when someone else tried to claim they have good taste"

I very much object to the idea that there are good and bad tastes. We all have our own opinions and what we like and what we dislike. I find that telling someone that they have bad tastes is demeaning them and putting their value beneath yours, and that's an extremely arrogant and disrespectful thing to do in my opinion. You have a good idea for a point there of the person calling bad things good, but I feel there is a way you could have worded it to not make you seem like a jerk, because the way you worded it now comes across as ad homonym.

I don't mean to antagonize you or come across as a jerk, I just disagreed with the sentence and thought that I'd explain why.

This is why I hate Sonic Boom more then Sonic 06.

At least Sonic 06 had a lot of potential, it's just that SEGA ruined it by wasting their time and resources splitting Sonic Team into two so they can make a Sonic game for Wii when they should have just let Dimps make a Sonic game for it instead. Sonic 06 at least played like a Sonic game, even if it wasn't a good one. In fact people are trying to put Sonic 06 in a better gameplay engine, which means it CAN be fixed and there ARE people coming in to fix Sonic 06.

However Sonic Boom was Dead on Arrival. The WHOLE thing is just a BIG mistake right out of the gate. I don't see anyone coming in to fix that mess of a game.

At least you can find something interesting with Sonic 06 but because people only want to focus on it's story, gameplay, and what damage it cause to the series when it really didn't do, but they don't ever criticizes Boom I mean Rise of lyric came out 2 years ago and people want the whole anti-boom thing to die and some of these are the same people who continue to remind people about how bad Sonic 06 and how Sega hasn't made a good game in years after 06 ruin everything and say that Colors save the franchise when the exact opposite happen and they say the TV show is the best part of Sonic Boom except it's really not their just taking every overuse joke in the book and try to make it relevant again when it wasn't even relevant to begin with.

Indeed. Seriously, I like Sonic 06. Even with it having some flaws,yes,but it's still a good game. HOWEVER, with boom, the WHOLE thing is a mistake with no charm to it whatsoever.

"Lovable oaf"? More like "Freakingg retarded".  And as for that statement "Boom is the best thing to happened to Sonic"? That would be as if I said "Street Fighter V is the best game in the Street Fighter series". It's nonsensical.

You know Knuckles' Sonic Boom version really does work well for the comedy aspect that the show is based around. I do like him as part of the Sonic Boom continuaty because he does work well with it and he's a separate character from the Knuckles in the main series so there's that.

Not this whole "It's a different continuity." argument again. All Sonic cartoons so far are non-canon and still had some impact on the franchise. The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog invented the Chili Dogs. SatAM spawned the longest still running comic series. Sonic Underground marketed Sonic on the Dreamcast. And Sonic X, due to actually being based on the games, heavily influenced the writing of the later games and started Knuckles' flanderization. In Sonic Boom, the flanderization is complete, you can sum him up in one word. I don't even want to know which state he'll be in when the next game comes out though it probably can't get any worse. If Boom Knuckles had at least some kind of personality, but no, he's just the Dumb Jock stereotype and everything that goes with it. Would a little bit of actual character really hurt the precious comedy of this show that much? I mean, they're not even trying. I can guess most of the jokes they're going to do with him before they happen.

They can't giving characters personality would killed the whole point of the show. But on a real note everyone is a stereotype Sonic is the typical hero stereotype, Tails is the nerdy stereotype, Knuckles is the big jock stereotype, Amy is the typical female stereotype, and Sticks is the stereotype of a crazy person, and Eggman is your typical backdoor neighbor super villain stereotype this series heavily focus on stereotype.

And that's the problem. If this was its own thing I wouldn't care, but it's supposed to be an adaptation of a series that simply isn't supposed to be that way. It's as if they took the Teen Titans and... Oh, wait...

Sorry but that's like saying Teen Titans Go works well just because making everything stupid works for comedy and being separate from what people had with the original and young justice. Neither Boom or Knuckles works well from any aspect.
