Default Should Sonic the hedgehog be gone for good?

I dunno. He's really cool and my personal favorite game character alongside Mario as well but people lost a lot of faith in him lately and I know there's already games that I like like Colors and Generations as well as many other Sonic games but this one is sort of different like will Sonic Boom make a difference to the franchise? Is Sonic really the only thing Sega can make money out of. Do we really want Sonic to be gone for good?

I say no, but only because of his glory days. I actually slightly prefer Sonic to Mario games ( 16 bit era ). My first real console was the Genesis with Sonic bundled in <3.

He is a cool character, they just haven't got his new era gameplay down yet.

I personally never really understood the love for Sonic in all honesty. I dunno, I mean, I had nothing against him, but I never really "got it", y'know? That being said, he is undeniably a major icon in gaming. He's been around for over 20 years, and is EASILY recognized by people around the globe. How many video game characters is that really true for? Not a lot. The thing about Sonic is, he was perfect for the gaming world back then, but that was a different time. He doesn't bring the same charm to the screen, and he just isn't what people want anymore. Maybe it's time for him to retire. After all, all good things, do in fact, come to an end.

Even though there's a lot of bad Sonic games out there (possibly even the Wii U version of Sonic Boom). I still think there's a lot of good games to make up for it. Generations and Colors show that Sonic Team can still make a fine platformer. Alongside all the 2D portable games and even Sonic 4 imo. For every lull in quality of the games, there's always a rise later on (EX: Adventure, Colors).

Although I voted "YES" I don't really believe it. I think that Sonic should continue existing but there should be less games with him. game every 3 years or something.

The remake they are trying to pull seems like it's gonna fail miserably.

I'm going to say no? Megaman was in a very similar situation where all the latest games weren't anything to right home about (although I actually really enjoyed Megaman X8) and now he has been replaced. So I imagine that if Sonic ever does get the boot from Sega, we either will wait a while and "BREAKING NEWS: SONIC RETURNS!!!" or it will get a total re-skin and be called a completely different game. (Looking at you mighty number 9!)

No, not unless Sega can produce a more popular franchise. Besides, the Sonic & Mario at the Olympic Games franchise is one of their more profitable IPs, although it would be cute to see them take out Sonic and effectively make it a Mario game ^^.
Long live 3DSF!!!

They just need to give Sonic a break for a few years until they can actually give him a decent game.
