If Silver was main character...

  • What would things be like in the game series if Silver was the main character, rather than Sonic? Would Amy still be in love with Sonic, or would she love Silver? Would Silver return her feelings? How would he react to all the other characters? etc, etc.

    • It depends, if you meant Silver replacing Sonic's place, then it could be possible that the team is awkward of the new change, but will probably get used to it sooner or later. If you meant Silver having his separate game similar to Shadow and Tails, then probably only Blaze would be present, along with new characters.

    • If SIlver was the main character, I believe things will be different.

      I believe that Silvers first game would be Sonic CD because of how relevant time traveling is for Silver the Hedgehog, making the Time Stones more relevant to him over the Chaos Emeralds.

      As for Silvers games in general, Silver lives in the future. I believe that his future would either look like Crisis City or Grand Metropolis, (Or somewhere like Future City or Monopole.) Depending if his future has Iblis or not.

      Another thing, when it comes to villains, Dr. Eggman Nega may have the predominant role instead of Dr. Eggman. And for sidekicks, Blaze the Cat would perhaps be introduced in the second game.

      This is how I imagine Silvers games will be like if he had the leading role over than Sonic. Oh and his gameplay will be like his gameplay in Sonic '06, even on the Mega Drive, except Genesis C Button would be for his psychokinesis aura until later games where the right shoulder buttons take over for PK.

    • Hmm...I don't know. Sonic 2006 got a lot of bad backlash, but Silver has appeared in some more games. Maybe, they should do a spin-off game.

      I liked Silver and there was some bits of Sonic '06 I liked, though it's hard to regard those bits I liked canon anymore.

      For example while Mephiles was too dependant on Iblis, I liked Mephiles as an individual villain than half of a major enemy.

      Hm, it depends which gameplay would be most suited for Silver. If it was 2D platform then they can take sweet time with an N3DS release. I can imagine the use of the Stylus to pick up group of enemies or build bridges with PK and so on.

      And yeah, I think they so should make another patform 2D Sonic game like the original one in 1991 but with Silver as main character!! Who's with me? (And there would be no Chemical Plant Zone act 2, so I wouldn't be stuck on a level for years on end.) :P

      I like the idea of Silvers game being a lot like Shadows game. Shadows game had somewhat a budget and not the best of graphics (I'm pretty sure it mostly recycled Sonic Heroes models and gameplay) and it's story was comparible to a fanfic written by a 12 year old. But still it had some charm and important canon elements it contributed to the series and can imagine Silvers game being similar.

      Only replacing Chaos Control/Blast and guns with the use of PK. I can imagine the idea of "paths and bridges" lasting as long as you hold down the PK trigger. And perhaps no need for Action Gauge as Silver can temporary hover Princess Peace style anyway.

    • I know, I saw it. I mean Shadow the Hedgehog was pretty dark for a spin-off game. I mean it by him attacking GUN soldiers, while riding on the motorcycle in a Ghost Rider way. If Silver had a game, it could be lighter, and less violent, in a way.

      Yes, but don't forget that he is the second most popular character in the franchise. So what Sega did before, is just based on what the fans wanted before, and that he has a mysterious past to uncover. I also like Silver. So if he was in a game, I think it is good to see what he can do himself and uncover something from his future.

      Shadow is all about being edgy.

      I imagine Silvers game, or to be precise his future without Iblis, being a lot like Grand Metropolis. Or the very least one of the major cities from the Sonic Riders games.

    • Here are differences that Silver has that Shadow hasn't got:

      Silver tries to console his anger, while Shadow doesn't.

      Silver uses telepathic powers for his good, while Shadow uses brute strength for hostility.

      Silver cares for his friends, while Shadow tries not to show it.

      Silver thinks killing someone is bad, while Shadow does it the other way around.

      A game idea could be set on Little Planet or of late Silver has been recieving dreams or clues of a princess and tries to uncover clues about her, leading him to find out about the doomed timeline with Iblis on his journey to find her. It could lead to the fact that the saved timeline he lives on is indeed the Sol Dimension and goes to her kingdom to find her.

      (Ooh I like that idea, I best make notes of it.)

      Every character has some flawless. Like Silver was trying to kill Sonic in Sonic 2006, even with all the examples that he had seen that make his belief false. While Shadow worked with Sonic and helped him. Shadow know how to deal with things, while Silver makes some errors in his plans and easily being manipulated. Shadow is faster and know how to use his powers more than Silver in Sonic Rivals 1 and 2.

    • Silver's powers are very powerful, and he would be like a big rival to Sonic. I mean Silver has got big powers. Sonic's main ability is running at supersonic speeds, while Silver's ability is telekinesis. Sonic hones in on his enemies, while Silver can throw a box at them from a safe distance. Silver is cautious, while Sonic would rather just attack enemies anyway without thinking!

      It;s why he was in Sonic Rivals.

      But yeah, in Sonic '06 he was incredibly powerful, though it was difficult to say if it was more fault on the games programming. You couldn't directly attack him and had to wait until he was occupied.

      Sonic Generations show him powerful enough to keep ahead of Sonic in terms of speed, but I guess makes sense given psychokinesis is the mental projection of the mind and "thought" being faster than lightspeed.

    • Yes, but that should be used in newer games.

      Sonic's fight with Silver in '06 was frustrating because the player did not have clear definition on how to fight Silver. If Sonic was at least warned to keep away from Silver or that a direct attack was inefficient then the battle would be more fair and entertaining.

      Another thing can be recovery (that moment of brief invulnerability after losing rings) should be immune to psychokinesis so that Silver cannot instantly grab you the moment after attacking you, so that he won't kill you the moment you loose your rings.

      Silvers battle in Sonic Generations is completely rehauled with Silver not using is psychokinesis directly on you and the homing attacks green target to make it more indicative on when to attack.

      Honestly, Silver actually has a lot of potential. I think the reason why so many people dislike him is because of him being from Sonic '06. His personality isn't bad either when you think about it (Although some could say "personality-wise" that he is a Trunks clone), anyhow he is definitely the better character of the two "new" main characters in '06. Elise is not exactly a fan favorite...
