I am currently in the process of convincing video game developer LakeFeperd that one of his characters' shoulders look like ding dongs

Sonic Mania is good, but...
Spoiler
... the latter half of the game seems a bit phoned in compared to the first half (except for the final zone). Like Act 1 of Mirage Saloon is just Sky Chase Zone from Sonic 2, Act 2 of Oil Ocean is just Act 2 of Sandopolis Zone from Sonic 3, and the boss of Metallic Madness Act 1 is just the final boss from Sonic 1. Also I was hoping for a lot more original stuff, only 4 completely original zones doesn't feel like a lot, especially given that this game was developed in well over a year.

That being said, Mania is pretty good and I think I am being too hard on it by judging as something I wish it were rather than for what it is, and it is a genuine celebration of 25 years of Sonic. It feels like a love letter by the fans rather than something that was conducted from marketing surveys and with investors trying to harvest the most profit. It is definitely riding on its successors' coat tails but that's exactly what it's supposed to do. It's a celebration of what have been and is proof that there is enough potential to keep the series alive for years to come.

Less a joke and more a random reference/meme in my head at the time
