Why the developers went with this bland looking motherfucker instead of this guy who actually has some personality in his design.

I actually sort of liked Robotnik's weird redesign, bottle caps and all. Modern Sonic is the one I don't like, though.

Because the second one looks like a boyband member and why the fuck would you want to play as a Backstreet Boys reject in inFamous 2? Terrible redesign, glad they ditched it.

Nothing IMO. Two of the better redesigns in recent video game history.

No way, Eggman 2006 was an abomination through and through.

The only thing I don't like about Modern Sonic in general is that dumb smirk Sega adds to him for no apparent reason. Like in that Sonic 4 logo.

In my eyes, the rest of the design is fine and seems somewhat conducive to his newer moveset, I guess. You know I'm cool with people who don't care for the design, though.

They wanted the character to be as unlikable as possible? I still don't get how you can spend so much time and money on a game but make such a profoundly bad lead character.

It's not a great redesign, but besides those bottle caps, I never really got what was supposed to be so offensive about it. Except for the fact that it appears in a bad, broken game.

Even though there is barely any consistency in the FE universe, I find these new character designs to be a huuuuuge step down from previous ones.

Going from this

Best upgrade ever.

Jill on the other hand, now that's a travesty!

to be fair RE5 Chris seems to be a more natural extension of RE1 Chris. Just buffer and capable of typing. I'll take a lovable lunk head over the doubtful leader they made him into in the REmake any day.

Capcom did fine with Jill until RE5. I liked RE3 Jill's personality and voice quite a bit. She has been crap from RE5 on though.

I loved the first one but I refused to play the sequel.

Cole from Infamous is a pretty good one. The proposed redesign was really good, but man the gaming community is really stupidly awful with their outrage sometimes. Still can't believe Sucker Punch caved and kept Cole as generic and unlikeable as possible, they should've stuck to their chops.

Eh, I actually like it so it feels consistent. The "new Cole" doesn't look like the first Cole at all so I am glad with the final product.

As for his characterization, though, I have no comment :P

Only redesign that ever bothered me was AC-R.

Just confusing since it's not a reboot and they all look completely different. If they had released a trailer just showing the faces I wouldn't have been able to guess what game it was for....also would be weirdest trailer ever.
