Based on review scores as well as fan reception. Sonic 06, Sonic Boom and Fallout 76 are all sequels/sidegames that got pretty much universally panned by critics and fans alike. That's not the case for Sword/Shield, whether it concerns reviewers or fans.

That's the difference between the two of us. You only consider your own personal judgment, but I look at a large number of opinions. You can say for yourself that Sword/Shield is a bigger disappointment than Sonic 06 was, but that's not an opinion that is representative of the majority.

So popular opinion, I guess that's a fair enough.

Well of course, I'm not so full of myself that I would try to speak for thousands of others, nor do I judge things based on popular opinion.

He does not have to speak for thousands.  Sales already do that.  And it is very good that you do not base your feelings on popular opinion, because as we know opinions are subjective.

You can't possibly have been a Sonic fan and be more disappointed about Sw/Sh than you were about Sonic 06. Either that or you forgot.

Here is a true sonic fan talking about his experience with Sonic 06.

Let me tell you, even if I haven't played Sw/Sh, nothing in the videos I'm seeing (even the one above that points out its bugs) resembles this. :(

Regarding this thread, I see that some people equate defending exaggerated criticism of the game with blind defense.

At the same time, I see reasonable posts showing that attacks are unreasonable and out of proportion.

I invite everyone to keep a good dose of discernment when looking at all sides.

Both Sonic 06 and Sw/Sh are in a state that makes them unplayable to me, but Sw/Sh means future games will be like it, whereas that wasn't the case with 06. That's my opinion, if that makes me not a true Sonic fan to you, lol whatever.

Unplayable to you does not mean broken or that it is a bad game when it is still enjoyable for most players.

You are correct about the possibility however that you may never see the changes you want when this happens to be the case.  You have every right to feel upset and no one blames you for that.  At the same time you cannot blame other people for enjoying something you could not even make an attempt at.

Unplayable is a gross exaggeration. And is laughable at best.  Which proves that nobody is defending the game, people are only pointing out absurdity.

Yet this post is you defending the game, further highlighting how you can't accept differing opinions. Your warped sense of reality and failure to see your double standard is really fascinating.

We've reached the point where people are seriously comparing Sword/Shield to Sonic 06. At this point we are only one step away from someone predicting that both the Jets and Dolphins will qualify for the playoffs this season because anything seems to go.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nothing in my post is "defending" anything about the game. A game sitting at 81 Meta isn't unplayable. At this point you are just trolling. I suspect you don't even believe what you are typing at this point. Have fun with that. lol

Well the point of trolling is to have fun, and while I'm certainly getting a kick out of some people's inability to accept differing opinions, I am indeed speaking honestly. I can't help if some get insecure over it.



Seems like it didn't made the reviewers happy, still 81 is a good score ( a little lower than Death Stranding for those who were guessing who would stand in front).

The only person who cannot seem to accept differing opinions is you it seems, so I literally fell out of my chair laughing seeing you say this!  🤣🤣🤣

No one was guessing as they are not even remotely the same type of game.
