I might be in the minority on this, but If a new mainline Sonic is announced tomorrow morning I hope it's ambitious in a way Forces wasn't. Most of Forces' stages felt way too short, and the classic Sonic segments were easily its weakest parts
Sonic Team frustrates me with how much they hate fun. Forces introduces 'make your own avatar' and then keeps me from playing as that avatar for 70%+ of the game. They could have just imported the empty hub world from Boom, so I could pose my custom avatar and take screenshots all day, but apparently the idea that I would make my own enjoyment is alien to the developers.
@xinjinmeng I hadn't thought about that, but that would've easily improved the game by a large margin. I think most of the shared media I've seen of Forces has been of the character creator screen
