Why is the Sonic fanbase the worst?

I just want to get to the bottom of this, that fanbase is shat on constantly and I'm curious to see why.

Sure, they've made a few bad games, really bad broken games that've bruised the Sonic brand, but again, the fans are still there. They're loyal, not the worst.

I've seen the Star Fox fanbase and I can tell you, bad/inconsistent games lead to bad fanbases. The fans are always still there because they loved one or another game in the franchise, they won't ever go away. But then again, I only know the Star Fox franchise - with Sonic being far bigger, more inconsistent, with worse games, you just know it's going to be shit.

I don't feel like repeating myself, nor do I feel like copy+pasting, so I'm gonna simply say that the Sonic fanbase acts immature over every little thing, and does weird things on sites like DeviantArt that I don't wanna get into.


The same could be said for Zelda, Pokemon, and anything else that has animals in it.

I've seen horrible fan art of Pokemon, truly disgusting shit, it deeply saddned me that someone spent a few hours making it.



Sonic is an old franchise and had many different types of games that people like and dislike

but I guess any reason pointing at a bad fanbase for Sonic can cover bad fanbases for anything...

I can't think of a game in the last 10 years that the whole Sonic community loved. I have a cousin who is big into that stuff and even he agrees that its messed up.



Because the Sonic fanbase actually got the hype train going over Sonic Boom when it was announced, when anyone could see from a mile away that it was going to be a train wreck: it's a 3D Sonic game developed by a 3rd party, and based on a kids TV show, which makes it a LICENSED 3D Sonic game.

What were you expecting???

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

They aren't. They're just an easy target. Final Fantasy community is the worst.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I would like to submit the previous statement as Exhibit A.



the fan art alone scar's people for life.

The Sonic community complains about everything for the sake of complaining. It gets to petty levels quickly. Community is so fragmented in sooo many ways that nothing will ever be agreed upon.

Pretty much exactly on point.. Go look at Sonic twitter page and look at these older adults complaining at sega and sonic lol.. Seriously he appeals to the younger crowd.. We're not in the 90's anymore, either support Sonic or move on.



 

Haven't you read the thread? They aren't the worst. Star Ocean fans are.
