Don't you already have an introduction thread we all said "hi" on already?
The poll was for worst, not best.

The Mega Drive has a wide selection of other games
I remember playing Desert Strike when I had the Mega drive way back.
I'm gonna say Secret RIngs on account of I found holding the Wiimote horizontally felt kinda awkward at times. The wiimote was made for one-handed play so having to use both hands for it felt like it wasn't practical for my large man-hands.
Or the very least the game could of had a PC release where it can be played with mouse and keyboard.
Given Black Knight had Sonic with a sword, they had to remap the controls. With movement assigned to the nunchuk this made handling the wiimote more comfortable so gameplay was vastly improoved.
I still don't have a Nintendo Switch, but if Sega ever decided to rerelease the games for the Switch I hope that it be an option to play S&tSR with the Switch Pro Controller, because those Joy-Con things look tiny to my massive hands.
I voted for someone else.
That someone being Jeff Fowler.
Doesn't matter if they're both about Sonic, this isn't a place for advertising.
You should give Alex Kidd's game a try. The Master System didn't have save files at all so it was also a gauntlet to play. But what I found surprising was that the game was more than just about Alex reaching the riceball at the end of each stage but a story began to subtly unfold. But the stages begin to be more challenging and there were some stages purely for small cutscenes and such.
If you wanted to finish the story you had to finish the game in one sitting, a game which challenges you more the more you play which just makes the ending more satisfactory.
I wish Sega didn't just retire Alex Kidd after the Master System's life.
>its probably going to be same like the first one and it may not be good at all
That's an oxymoron. If the sequel will be just as good as the first movie how can it not be as good at all?
Because my local cinema isn't showing it, I'll be visiting my old hometown Monday to see it with my best friend.
Though given how the trains were and the storms we've been having, would much rather see it here than all the trouble with the trains.
I was gonna watch it regardless if it was good or bad, but even I figured it be naff. Kinda happy and somewhat proud how well recieved.
Hopefully I'll get to watch it on Monday.
Why do you think Jeff Fowler is a bad choice for the sequel when he has done so well for the first movie?
Sure he only worked on two shorts in the past but a lack of filmography doesn't proove he is a bad director.
I think you should stop comparing him to the quality of others and appreciate what someone like him has done for Sonic's movie.
I've been meaning to ask your oppinion on Sonic's movie given you were set to believe it'll be terrible. What's your thoughts on how much of a turn-around it is?
I remember the first time I finished Sonic 1 for the Mega Drive. It was like finishing a gauntlet and proud of what you acomplished. This was back when games had save files so when you wanted to finish a game you played to win.
I've yet to see the movie (will on Monday) but for a movie that beats Detective Pikachu in box office records then I must say that is quite some feat given Nintendo wouldn't of been careless who would make a movie for cinema.
I just hope Nintendo wouldn't underhandedly retaliate towards Sega over them making a video game movie better than their own.
(I still imagine this will happen someday.)
>Sonic plots are usually the same: Eggman is trying to rule the world, and Sonic has to stop him. The only difference is how Eggman tries to take over the world.
Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach.
Princess is in another castle.
Defeat Bowser, save princess.
Rinse and repeat for most Super Mario games.
The crossover movies still had actors like Bela Lugosi (Dracula), Lon Chaney Jr. (Wolf man) and Boris Karloff (Frankenstein's monster) reprise their roles in most of the crossover movies. So sure it didn't have a solid continuity but still regards these movies the first "cinematic universe" in cinema history.
So even if the "Sega Cinematic Universe" is just as flimsy that is fine. Hypothetically speaking if The House of the Dead 2 took place on Tom Wachowski's Earth and when SOnic shows up no one ever talks about the outbreak or any consequences from it then while it would make little sense to the continuity at least we'd get some movies out of it all.
(I'm being hypothetical. I know the old THotD movies do not have anything to do with Sonic's movie at all.)
Yes, but those movies didn't rely on grand finales or phases. They kept it simple.
If Paramount did want to make a "Sega Cinematic Universe", with some creative thinking I myself can think-up some excuses for how the movies may tie together.
For example if I get to direct the Virtua Cop movie but Paramount asks me to tie it with Sonic's movie in someway then I would have Tom Wachowski as the leading protagonist. He's an SFPD cop and the Virtua Cop games look like they take place in a coastal city. If the "virtua cops" use high-tech firearms then those firearms could of been modified guns from when Dr. Robotnik worked for the government.
But I myself would prefer it if we can have more Sega movies that were more it's own thing and wouldn't be restricted to conform to the requirements left from the other movies. After all Virtua Cop games had their own two protagonists named Michael "Rage" Hardy and James "Smarty" Cools so what about them as protagonists?
It be especially be complicated if Paramount asked for a House of the Dead movie to be in a shared universe given zombie outbreaks arn't something you can hide under the rug after each game.
As said I propose the "Sega Cinematic Universe" more as a means to get more Sega movies if theres less chance of stand-alone ones.
I'm just gonna go ahead and assume you mean the "Dark Universe", a cinematic universe that Universal Pictures which I think are still trying to get off the ground with but so far floundering given how bad The Mummy movie was.
Nah I'm on about the original Universal monster movies such as Dracula, Frankenstein and Wolfman and all the other monsters. These monsters have become iconic thanks to Universal Studios but not many remember the crossover movies they made which made these monster movies to be cinemas first ever "cinematic universe" which lasted from 1923-1956.
The Universal Classic Monster movies had the occasional crossovers but most of them were stand-alone. Sure they didn't have "phases" or major team-up movies for those phases, these movies were simply a matter of various movies series that had some crossovers in common which established a shared world amongst these monsters.
This is what I would have in mind if there was a "Sega CInematic Universe". Between Sonic's world and Tom Wachowski's world can be various stories and events based on Sega games.
