I used to be a big Sonic fan. That was the franchise that made me like Sega. I think it was 2012 or so where I stopped being a "fan". I'm still a fan of Sonic to this day, but not nearly as big back then. Nowadays I don't really care for their games. They may have a game here and there I may play and like, but now I'm indifferent about the company. The big thing that is leading me back to Sega is Atlus. If Sega lost to Nintendo in the bid (which I still can't wrap my head around) then the situation I have for them along with their financial situation would be far worse.
I personally don't care much for their biggest IP right now (Yakuza), but I do enjoy the smaller games they put out such as, PuyoPuyo Tetris, Sonic Mania, and more. Sega for some reason hates their older IP, like they just flat out ignore the IP that people keep asking for them to bring back. Jet Set Radio, Nights, Sonic (we all know they don't care for him anymore), Shining Force, Phantasy Star (I know they have Online 2, but I want single player), Crazy Taxi, and more. Right now it seems like their priority is Phantasy Star Online 2, Yakuza, and Atlus. I do not know why Indie developers had to come in to revive Shenmue, Streets of Rage, and Panzer Dragoon. I also do not know why Sega does not get on Atlus' ass to make their games multiplat. Atlus games going multiplat is literally the easiest way to gain more revenue.
They really need a Capcom miracle right now. For those that don't know in the early 2010s Capcom only had $150 mil (USD) in the bank. They were in a financial situation that looked dire, which is why Street Fighter V had to get financial help from Sony in exchange to keep it off the Nintendo and Xbox. But we know where they are now. Their games are great and are selling extremely well. They brought Resident Evil back to it's roots, Monster Hunter broke through the last gate in the West, Devil May Cry returned in all it's glory, MegaMan of all IPs finally got a new game, and now Ghost and Goblins is coming back.
Capcom is one example, but that is the best example of what they need to do to gain interest not only from me, but other fans.
