    Well, like I was saying on SOA, I don't think people should be so eager for him to return. He did great work in the 90s, but not really in the 2000s. I don't even know how his recent games are, I never saw them when I was at Gamestop, and Rodea is still unreleased.

    I disagree. They should get this guy back and pay him double. At least when he was here, the games were good.

    He's had some bumps in the road, but so does everyone. But his track record from Sonic the Hedgehog to Sonic Adventure 2 will not be beaten in this day and age. Returning grants him the chance to put this series back to its golden age.

    He's had several noteworthy bumps, like you, I, and iHawk have pointed out. And while those can be forgiven, I don't think it's a good idea to just throw money at him right away. He has to prove he can still do it. And keep in mind I actually did like all of his games, even the ones people hate.

    Pleas tell me what he has to prove. Sonic 06 may have been a horrible game under his release, but at least the game had a decent story.

    We don't see those anymore.

    Every game that Naka has been involved in the past has had an inspiring story, better than the junk we've been getting nowadays.

    In any case, this is a ray of hope. One step higher from what we are at now.

    Even if you think Sonic 06 had a decent story, that's not a good enough reason to bring him back, especially with double pay. Personally, I've seen fans do better stories, so we've got better options.

    Yeah, this goes to show how bad the current Sonic Team is... when fans create better games than they do.

    Are you kidding me? If Naka was responsible for just Sonic 06, he should be fired. But that's not the case. Sonic 06 and ShadtH were literally the only bumps along Naka's releases. Naka was somehwat responsible for all the games before which were successful, and none of the bad ones after.

    Naka can't be worse than what Sonic Team is now. Maybe the last few games he made were crappy, but at least they were traditional Sonic and not this 2.5D garbage with horrible story plotlines we have now. At least he'd bring the traditional game back and not this fake Sonic 4 stuff.

    I didn't say games, I said stories. And yes, the fans make better 2D games, but very rarely. Probably only a couple are, and even then we're comparing that to Dimps, not Neo Sonic Team.

    Yes, but the problem isn't that they were bumps, but that they were consecutive bumps. This leaves the question if his skills are declining or not. We have to verify he can still do good. And maybe he can, he's made a few games after leaving Sonic Team, but no one here has played them, which leaves me to the question.

    And now it's matter of opinion. I feel that Unleashed, Colors, and Generations had better story and gameplay than Sonic Heroes, Shadow, and Sonic 06. And sadly, you don't know he'd do that. At best we'll have the original physics back. At best.

    The reason I didn't reply is because I keep on forgetting about this forum and Sonic because THE FRANCHISE IS CURRENTLY DEAD!

    SA2 had a great story when Naka was on board, and so did various others.

    I'll admit that Unleashed and Colors were good attempts at stories, but they were just bad games overall that took away traditional Sonic. (Still better than any Mario game though)

    I don't believe in someone losing ability. Okay, so Naka made a couple of consecutive bad games. Yet, their stories and way of gameplay (Adventure over speed) are still better than the bad games Sonic Team has made today. This may be my opinion, but I'll defend it nonetheless.

    I'd rather choose Naka who has proven he can make FUN games even if he's had bumps. As I said, it's a notch above those who have proven to make BORING Sonic games.
