I think what these games show you really is Mario can get away with gimmicks...give him Fludd or a magic hat and it works. Give Sonic a sword, alien wisps, a werewolf form etc and it dosen't work. I think that should tell Sega something...stop trying to be like Mario. Only thing Sonic should have is abolities from the item boxes like faster speed, special shields or short time invincibility.
You want to know why a 3D adventure like Sonic Adventure works...no gimmicks, it was it's own thing.
But the point is they can't help putting something in whether it's small like the wisps or a game changer like the werewolf form.
Sega always feels the need to add something and it's getting annoying. I mean even in Sonic Forces they thought about wasting time on a custom character creator. Who asked for that? I mean seriously? Polishing the game and making it better then it was would have probably been a better option,
You're making out I'm saying it as a bad thing...I'm not
I'm just saying when they add a feature which COULD be considered a gimmick, it works so well that it's not
Unlike Sonic where when something is added it feels like it is
