The Question: Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic?

[Every Friday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

With yesterday being Sonic the Hedgehog's twentieth anniversary, it's been a bit of a SEGA-themed week for us at Destructoid Towers. With that in mind, only one question is fit to be asked this week -- do you prefer "Classic" Sonic or "Modern" Sonic? 

While you can talk about aesthetics, I almost want the question to involve gameplay. Do you still prefer the old school Genesis platforming, or do you think the 3D "racing" style from Sonic Adventure onwards is the way to go? 

Although Sonic has been in some famously poor games in recent years, the newer Sonic has a very dedicated fanbase that possibly outnumbers those who grew up on the Genesis these days. So let's settle this once and for all -- old or new? 

Anybody who says "Neither" shall be dubbed St. Smarmy of Smarm.
