The Painfully Poor Writing of Sonic Forces
No one should ever try to defend the story, writing, or voice acting in a Sonic game (I'm looking at you, middle school Jesse). That's just not what these games are about. Still, that doesn't mean it isn't fun to point out all the times when Sonic games really make you cringe.
Here are some of the pain inducing parts of Sonic Forces I've encountered so far. They're pretty darn bad. Enjoy!
Silver the "Optimist"
The gang has just discovered that Sonic is "dead" and is desperately trying to determine what their best course of action is. Amy laments the loss of the hedgehog she's been stalking for decades and asks Silver if he thinks there's any chance that Sonic is still out there somewhere.
In an attempt to make this game as miserable as possible, Silver replies with "I'm an optimist, but I'm also a realist." Class A Japanese translation writing there...
Not to have the stupidity outdone, Silver quickly follows up his mind numbingly stupid comment with, "Sonic is gone, Amy. And Tails is... Tails has just lost it."
Pure comedic gold.
I guess Infinite is like a pedophile or something. This is a little messed up, honestly.
Sonic Forces: Modern Furryfare
Knuckles should never have a role this serious in a game.
When Vector states that Dr. Eggman's planet destroying machine is bad, Knuckles comes back with his action movie one-liner.
That's why they call it "war."
I'm gonna stop there for now.
Those are just some of the bad ones I found in the first 20 minutes. I can't wait to play more of Furry Fest and discover what else the writers at Sonic Team thought was an appropriate thing to put in a video game.
