Because he's a self righteous nit wit that has had an easy care free life. Something the populace can relate to much more than something of urgency and despair much like shadow's past, or heavy metal music.
They need to make another Shadow the Hedgheog game, although I feel that his appeareance in Sonic Generations is gonna disappoint me...-_- and plus they changed everyones voice actors... Shadow's voice really suited him.
my gosh! a being than can use both chaos energy and hell fire to a grand extent now has the powers of a savage werewolf?! time to get lots of silver bullets and daggers, and get the eclipse cannon while I'm at it too.
Anyways it is a nice job you did on this man the red moon was an intriguing addition as well.
ya. i don't hate sonic but other characters should get more of the spot light. i ment yes shadow the hedgehog was a bad game ( or atleast to me it was ) but chacters like knuckles or shadow would make a great game on his own if u ask me.
