Okay, that makes sense. I didn't follow that event, but at least I now know the context behind it.

Carry on.

Because we e-mail bombed them.

I doubt that's the reason, unless you are joking.

Really though, why come to this place for suggestions when you don't intend to include the character this site is about in the game? Unless Sega did some meddling and told Sumo not to include NiGHTS as a playable character for some reason, but even I don't think that low of Sega. Both Sega and Sumo obviously know this community exists. They have come here for suggestions. Why pretend otherwise?

This article from TSSZ does raise some interest. Apparently this community wasn't overlooked after all.

Sumo Digital keeps an eye on internet forums for feedback on the game, name dropping sites like NeoGAF, GameFAQs, and even the NiGHTSintodreams.com forums (a possible hint to an as-of-yet unannounced character). They use these to gauge interest on what characters and features people want to see in the game.

If this is true, why omit NiGHTS from the game when they are aware of this place? Was the site really mentioned in the actual Q&A?

On second thought, there is one classic IP that Sega has remained consistent with: Virtua Fighter. Okay, there was Virtua Quest, but Virtua Fighter 5 easily made up for it.

Anyone stop to think that Sega makes almost only terrible games these days?

As discontent as I am with Sega, that's a gross exaggeration. Sega still makes plenty of good games, only they are all based on original IPs. Their classic franchises, on the other hand, have not been done any justice. For every MadWorld and Valkyria Chronicles, they make Sonic 2006 and Golden Axe: Beast Rider. It's like Sega has no faith in their old characters.

Maybe this NiGHTS campaign will make Sega understand how important their classic IPs are. I think it's possible if this campaign is done right.
