I used to feel like Sega came out with so many varied and interesting games when they had their own hardware. When they went purely software, I thought it would mean more of that, but outside of a handful of games, I barely think of Sega anymore. And mostly all of that is just Atlus.
 
I feel like now that they aren't a hardware manufacturer their focus is to emphasize the games they feel like are strengths for them and ignore genres they felt they needed to produce to ensure the hardware platform had a wide variety of games from all genres.
 
No mention of Lost Judgement and Sonic Colors sales. I wonder why :lollipop_neutral:
I hope the sales were good.
And surprised by SMB selling so much :lollipop_grinning_eyes:
Deserved! I think it was an improvement in almost every way, especially combat and side content!
