It’s fitting, perhaps, that our first site poll of 2018 looks back on yesteryear. We asked, simply enough, whether or not you thought that the Sonic franchise had a good showing in 2017. With over 500 votes counted, here’s what you said:
Yes – 68%
Indifferent – 19%
No – 13%
Over two-thirds of the respondents believed 2017 was a good year for the franchise, and just under fifteen percent believed the opposite to be true. With Sonic Mania achieving near-universal acclaim and Sonic Forces finding a dedicated fanbase of its own, it seems clear that Sonic finds himself on surer footing heading into the future.
A new site-wide poll is now open; it asks you to consider Sonic’s modern gameplay and how it has evolved over the years. We encourage you to discuss the aforementioned poll results in the comments below.
