Sonic is back in 2D

Finally Sega is seeing the light! They announced a 2D Sonic game in HD! Most of the Sonic games that come out these days are in 3D and horrible. They give Sonic and his friends the stupidest voices, bad controls, and just ruining Sonic as the years go by. That is until now. With Sonic returning to the 2D style of the game, this could return Sonic to his glory days. The point of a Sonic game was to go fast and collect rings. When Sonic is in 3D that is not going to happen. Collecting rings is a pain and going fast isn't much easier.

So I am welcoming this 2D HD Sonic with open arms. I am a fan of the original 2D games and even the 2D games for the DS were descent. Why did Sega even bother with 3D? To compete with Mario of course. When Mario 64 came out and was amazing, poor Sonic the Hedgehog was thrown to the side. Sonic was even made into 3D before Mario, but no one really liked the original Sonic 3D, but when Sonic was made into a 3D game for the Sega Dreamcast, everyone loved it (well except for Shawn and I). They kept making them in 3D and ended up making Sonic Riders, one of the worst games I've ever played in my life.

Sega has finally played their 3D sonic games and figured out "If it's not broken, then why fix it?" I can't hope for more news for this 2D Sonic game to come out.
