Right, so this year sees the release of Mario Odyssey and Sonic Forces. As someone who at various points in my life has been interested in one or the other, I find myself surprised to see both franchises back despite last being into either of them in the early-mid 00s.

To me Mario lis hands down more innovative than sonic but is let down by the fact that it is a nintendo exlcusive, has a soundtrack and is likely to have a crap story (as do virtually all mario games).

Sonic forces in contrast is multiplatform and gives me good vibes from what I have seen so far. It looks the best sonic game in years gameplaywise (cross between lost worlds, classic sonic and ratchet and clank), has a much better soundtrack than mario and looks more interesting in terms of design and premise. Downside the voice acting is crap (seriously, go for the voice actors from sonic x anime from 2004 or the adventure games), the levels so far seem easy and sonic has had a bad reputation for not delivering over the last few years.

So yh, sound off which one you would get / which your interested in

Short answer: Both.

Long answer: If I could only have one, then likely Mario Odyssey, as I've played far more Mario games and have yet to be disappointed by any of them. Though TBH, the Mario game I have my eye on the most right now is Rabbids Kingdom Battle (I love turn-based strategy, and it looks a lot of fun). With Sonic, I like the characters, but the games haven't always been good so I don't have the same level of nostalgia.

*I say all this, but I still don't have a Switch* :moon:

I've always been a huge Sonic fan so it's no competition for me, I'm really looking forward to playing Forces. Odyssey also looks super fun, but I don't have a Switch so I won't be able to play it.

Personally I'd go Mario, but that's largely because I haven't played much of the previous Sonic games.

I would get both but if i had to pick one then it would be Mario odyssey mainly due to the fact there is free roam
