I was a secondary Sega fan. Sonic 2/3 were guilty pleasures to play at friends houses with myself having a SNES. Only Saturn game I played was Sonic 3D Blast and that was on PC. Played Sonic CD and Sonic Generations recently on Xbox.
But god damn did I respect them during the Dreamcast era. Short lived but made some gems like Skies of Arcadia and Sonic Adventure 2, which I enjoyed immensely on the GameCube. Powerstone was a arcade favourite. I had a lot of respect for their work on FZero GX, still my favourite sci-fi racer to this day.
Nowadays their IP just don’t interest me, but I know they have a audience and serve different niches. They still have value and potential.
