If you’re a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog on Facebook, you can now vote in a new poll that may or may not determine the outcome of the next entry in the “Storybook Series” and the shameless gimmick that comes with it (that half of us will more than likely complain about 😉 ). Here are your options for this “just for fun” poll:
Greek Myths & Legends
Those who are on Facebook, but are not friends of Sonic should visit this link and “become a fan.” Not only will you get updates about Sonic from SEGA themselves, but you can vote in the poll above and chat with even more Sonic fans.
As for my opinion on the choices, horror could be the well along the lines of “Scooby Doo Meets Addams Family” from the old Scooby-Doo Movies or a playable version of a game with “Night of the Werehog” vibes. Film Noir would be all kinds of odd, in my opinion, as it’s not really a “setting,” but rather, a style of filmmaking that does not lend itself to action. Picturing Sonic and friends as the cast of The Big Sleep would certainly melt my brain. Western would be a fun setting to bounce about. Although, it probably comes with a six-shooter, so that choice is also a hesitant one. Sci-Fi and Greek Myths are fantasy settings, so like the two games that came before them, are more appropriate for the next Storybook game. That sutibleness is probably a good indication as to why they are the top two choices in the poll at this time. I can see it now: play Sonic as Gilgamesh and Shadow as Enkidu and try to take down the nasty Humbaba. The best part about the story of Gilgamesh is that Shadow, as Enkidu, dies. I’d pay to see that one.
That’s my two cents. We want to hear your takes on each of these settings! Sound off in the comment box.
EDIT: AAUK has informed us in the comments below that the three best wall posts on the poll’s page will win a bag full of SEGA goodies! Well, now you just have to go vote now. 😉
