Sonic is literally just as bad as Bubsy.
It just had more money/marketing behind it.
>>
It's not even close to "literally" as bad. It suffers from the same problems, which are inherent to the design of the game, but sonic shows what that kind of game can be like in the hands of competent developers. Bubsy shows what it's like when it's not.

Sonic is an unplayable mess.
>inb4 "git gud"
You can "git gud" at Bubsy too. Doesn't make it enjoyable.

Sonic doesn't have the annoying/cheesy voice samples so your statement is already objectively wrong. Have sex.

>>5728335
Bubsy wasn't bad tho

DKC was bad

Bubsy has fall damage. In a fucking platformer
Come on man, you're free to dislike Sonic all you want, but don't try to prop up Bubsy in the process.
>>
Sonic's controls are fluid. Bubsy's controls are slippery, especially when gliding.
Sonic has constant protection as rings and shields are everywhere. Bubsy has little to no protection with an occasional invincibility.
Sonic can fall from great heights with no problem. Bubsy can not.
Sonic can go fast enough without compromising the gameplay. Bubsy can not.
Sonic's enemies are easily readable and you can make a proper judgement call on how to approach and defeat them. Most of Bubsy's enemies do not have this leisure.
Sonic's environments make it clear what will harm you or kill you. Bubsy's does not.
Sonic does not talk. Bubsy won't shut the fuck up.
Sonic's bosses are fair and engaging. Bubsy's bosses are repetitive, and stressful when they're not.

Both outrun the camera, and both use an outdated lives/continues concept, but Bubsy is punished more as a result due to flawed design.

>mfw I enjoyed the fuck out of both games

>>5728362
It also has a glide button you can hit at any time to avoid said fall damage. Why are you so shit?

Yep. Only a furry would care about the actual species. Get some better taste, bro, no dick is worth enduring endless puns.

You are so fucking ignorant it's not enjoyable to dunk on you.

First of all, Sonic the Hedgehog is a superior game to Bubsy using objective criteria like gameplay, graphics, and sound even if you think both are terrible games. Accolade should be completely embarrassed at this fact since Sonic was released in 1991 and Bubsy came out in 1993. Accolade had 2 years to ape Sonic the Hedgehog on superior hardware and couldn't fucking do it. That's fucking embarrassing.

Sonic had NO frame of reference to base its design on. Platformers before Sonic were all Mario clones and side-scrolling action RPGs. Bubsy had Sonic and, to underline this point, Accolade still fucked it up.

Visually, Sonic incorporated cutting edge 3D-like techniques for the rendering of its sprites like tessellation. Bubsy's art style looks like shitty public domain art that you saw on grade school posters.

Sonic's soundtrack was composed by a popular and cutting-edge Japanese performing artist for the time. Bubsy's soundtrack, developed for a superior sound chip, uses awfully outdated '50s rock music that belongs on touch-typing software on MS-DOS.

Bubsy had good marketing! The fact that you're a stupid zoomer and you know who Bubsy means that Bubsy's marketing was just as effective as Sonic's marketing. I remember seeing Bubsy every damn day on an Australian television show called Amazing where kids would compete to see how far they could get in the game. Bubsy was given an incredible chance and this is indicated by the fact that it got a sequel and it continued on the Jaguar.

What's with all the threads lately bashing Sonic?
I replayed the 1st one today and I think it still holds up well.
>>
>>5728660

It's always newbies who go into the game thinking it's push right to win. Always.
>>
>>5728335
Omg THIS!!!
>>
>>5728660
the game who's big meme was to go fast incentivizes going slow.

Go fast, you die. Go slow, and you might win. Also, the level design encourages you to explore and look around which is impossible if you go fast.
>>
>>5728660
"sanic sux gotta go fast xd" is a very epic gamer culture joke that never, ever gets old. Epic gamers seem to have discovered recently that they can get more epic lols by shitting on the old Sonic games as well as the new ones.

What's wrong with the lives/continues system?
>>
>>5728335
Not gonna lie I thoroughly enjoyed (the amount I could actually progress) the Busy on jaguar. I'm not sure if I'm a masochist or something but dying frequently and memorizing enemy patterns to zoom through was fun in a weird way. By no means a console seller, let alone a good game. I still liked it though, never really played any of the others. Anyone else into jag Bubz?
>>
First bugsy is a 6(a good game), the second is a 3 and the 3D is a 1 or even 0.
I think the master system's Sonic and 3&K are the best Sonic, but all Genesis Sonics are better than a 6.
>>
>>5728924
don't get it wrong. there's nothing wrong with Bubsy as a whole. I just think some of the hate for Bubsy 3D rubs off into the other two. at least Bubsy is better then Awesome Possum.

Sonic was never good. I'm sorry your parents were divorced and bought you a Sega. It's time to grow up and stop pretending that Sega were ever good.

I'm disappointed no one replied to my cutting reply... even to just dunk on me...

he's not wrong

>>5730942
most people got tired of that sort of conversation many years ago anon
>>
>>5728769
desu StH wasn't really about going fast and neither was Sonic CD, they were about fluid movement and physics and a sense of momentum. Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 are the ones that were marketed that way and they're not that great as videogames. S&K is basically designed backwards from marketing team passed down to developer.

bubsy doesnt have rings, dumbass

Sounds like you're just fucking terrible at the game or otherwise playing Sonic 1 instead of 2 or 3, which are both better games
>Also, the level design encourages you to explore and look around which is impossible if you go fast
Literally only in Sonic CD, which again, is not very good compared to 2 and 3&K

Go back /v/.

Sonic games are excellent and Bubsy 1 is actually ok.
>>
>>5728335
Busby 2 is unironically fun. Once you get into it it's super rewarding to just fly around, rack up money for powerups, and explore pits for bonus games.

>>5728362
literally git gud

Literally Zoomers getting their opinions from youtubers
