Just yesterday, Steve Aoki’s virtual concert for the 30th anniversary of Sega’s blue hedgehog was held from the official Sonic the Hedgehog channel on YouTube and the worst suspicions of the fans were confirmed. As with Post Malone’s virtual concert for the 25th anniversary of Pokmon, Aoki’s video has garnered a multitude of negative comments that highlight different little-worked aspects of the video. The concert has a duration close to 55 minutes and several classic phases of Sonic games appear as well as some characters such as Tails, Knuckles or Amy Rose.
Even though the concert also featured support for virtual reality, It was not enough to make up for its deficiencies. One of the most criticized sections of the video has been its musical selection. Although it features some of the most popular DJ and producer tracks, no reference is made to the mythical themes of Sonic the Hedgehog except for a small exception with the music of Stardust Speedway from Sonic CD; Again, something similar happened with the Post Malone concert, since the concert also consisted of the artist performing his own songs with places and creatures of the universe. Pokmon background as decoration.
“I feel like I should be forgiven for assuming that a Sonic concert would have some Sonic music on it.. Clearly I was wrong to assume that, “one user pointed out in the comment box.” Quite crappy honestly and they are lucky that they have removed the possibility of seeing the ‘dislikes’ “, commented another fan. Despite this, also there are some comments that are more enthusiastic. “Seeing this with the Quest 2 makes me wish Sega would make a Sonic game in virtual reality. Seeing Chemical Plant in virtual reality is amazing and I loved the concert“Explained a user. Next we leave you with some selection of the funniest memes that they have collected since VGC.
