This is better than half of the other retro sonic games and that's fucking funny

I don't understand the sonic bad meme, sonic games are easily one of the best platformers of the 90's, most platfomers back then were crap
>>
>>9149005
Retro includes gcn nowadays grampa

>>9148960
CAN YOU FEEL THE SUNSHINE
>>
>>9149014
I still hold to my opinion that sonic was one of the best platformers back then, I just feel like that changed in 2010, where the internet brought in a greater number of games.
>>
>>9149018
Every 3D Sonic game is heavily flawed somehow. EVERY one.
>>
>>9149019
Yes, but they are great games. i prefer sonic than your typical collectathon.

What about sonic 3D blast, anon?!
>>
>>9149005
The modern gaming zeitgeist is written by ~30 year old millenials from the United States who grew up on nintendo trash, so to them, anything nintendo made was amazing and revolutionary, and anything that isn't nintendo is retroactively bad because it just is, ok?
>>
>>9149267
But surely if you grew up on NES you should realise Nintendo's decline over the years with bloat and baby mode injected into all their games.
>>
>>9149287
>decline
That's the problem, nintendo was never good.
>>
>>9149032
that is not a gamecube game
>>
>>9148960
I'll take Sonic CD over any of the Saturn games. At least you posted the superior PC version though
>>
>>9149247
I like it. MD/Gen OST is real fucking good
>>
>>9149287
What is "baby mode" and how it differs from "adult mode"?
>>
>>9149018
2007 was the nail in the coffin, which really started wtih Heroes just being a bad follow up to the already flawed adventure games.
>>
>>9149809
things changed when sonic fans started releasing fan games, they just play better than new sonic games and i don't know how frontier is going to be better
>>
>>9149579
Yeah anon,The games soundtrack is amazing
>>
>>9148960
No, it's not. It's shit.
Great soundtrack though.

Imagine you're tasked with writing an europop song where the prompt is "write a song about crystals in space"

All things considered I'm surprised at how well they did.

Sonic has been on Nintendo consoles for over 20 years and is pretty tight-knit with Nintendo. People generally only call the 3D ones bad and it's because they actually are

We need aword for games that are old but aren't retro. Stuff like Gamecube.

Someone think of a name.
>>
>>9151426
"Recentro"

>>9151426
It's called "the 2000's"

Another anon already suggested splitting the board and calling this kind of stuff /vr2k/
>>
>>9151426
Retro should have shifted to accompany gamecube by now, with everything else falling into vintage or antique status but /vr/ isnt ready to have that discussion.
>>
>>9151621
>NES
>antique
meds
>>
>>9151643
I was thinking more magnavox, coleco and atari for antique but sure pretend thats what i meant.
>>
>>9151762
You want to pretend NES isnt retro and gamecube is because you are underageb& and retarded
>>
>>9151832
The passage of time is unending and your death is inevitable. I'm sorry anon. As I said, you're not ready to have this conversation.
>>
>>9151867
>N64 isn't retro but Gamecube is
you don't have have a point you're just a retard
>>
>>9151867
>As I said, you're not ready to have this conversation.
Did you actually say that anywhere? lol
>>
>>9148960
It isn't even half a game. If every stage were 3x better than mainline Sonic games, it would still be a lesser game than them overall.
>>
>>9150013
Well yes.

I don't even know how you came to that conclusion. Here, let me actually draw some lines so you attack what i'm actually saying.

Gen 1-2 (Atari/Pre vg collapse): antique
Gen 3-4 (Nes & Snes/2d era): Vintage
Gen 5-6 (n64 and Gc/Early 3d era): Retro
Gen 7: Just kinda old.

Each new generation pushes the previous ones back one. Even if you don't agree with the list or timing, you'll eventually have to accept the gamecube is a retro console. What, were going to go another 10 years holding the line?
>>
>>9152317
Not him, but that's why I said in the other thread just go by decade. 80's gaming, 90's gaming, 2000's gaming. The same method is used for music and movies. Retro movies can mean anything from Charlie Chaplin to Sam Raimi Spider-Man, that's why we use decade numbers
>>
>>9152317
>i dont know where you came to that conclusion
You nigger. You literally said Gamecube is retro and all others should be considered vintage and antiques.
You are a retard. nobody cares what arbitrary words you want to ascribe to things.
>>
How is Gamecube not retro?
>Released more than 20 years ago
>Last games released 15 years ago

Dreamcast was only like 13 years old and N64 16 years old when /vr/ started.

Because the last good 3D sonic game to cone out was Adventure 2 on the fucking dreamcast. Every game after that has been shit (yes, including Heroes, unleased, colors, and Generations) and the last good 2D sonic game before Sonic Mania was fucking Sonic Advance 2

Literally all sega has to do is emulate the gameplay/gamefeel and level design philosophy of Adventure 1 and 2, while making the characters easier to controller is the only changes they need to make. But instead, the fucking insist on using the new homing mechanic that feels like slugshit, making the gameplay like framing Temple Run where it moves forward for you, and adding gimmicks like forced 2D segments, werewolf shit, and whatever the fuck those things from Colors were.
>>
>>9153515
It is retro, but unfortunately we have retards here that think "retro" is a "style" and not age.
>>
>>9148960
Maybe if you're including the GameGear games. I like Sonic R, but I'd still rather play Spinball or the DX port of Adventure.
>>
>>9153415
Aight fair I did say everything. Wouldn't say no one cares though, you seem to care way too much.
>>
>>9153542
Sa2 and advanced 2 were both the start of the decline.
>>
>>9153542
>the last good 2D sonic game before Sonic Mania was fucking Sonic Advance 2
Advance 3 was better.
>>
>>9153770
Im just calling you a retard, not a single person in this thread took anything you had to say seriously
>>
>>9153970
And advance 1 was better again. Man, I wish I loved sonic advance 3, the team mechanics are interesting and open up so many options but the level design is still loves to ram you into enemies amd focues on speed section entirely too much like sa2. If sa3s level design was more in line with sa1 and the classics it could easily be my favourite.

>>9153952
I think the exact moment it started going downhill (hehe) was when they decided to replace their prototype windy valley. The difference between the beta and final shows exactly what direction sonic team wanted to take sonic, making speed more extrinsic to sonic with each release.
>>
>Better than
Labyrinth
Blast
3D Blast (debatable)
Tails' Sky Patrol
Drift
Drift 2

>Not as good as
1
2
3&K
CD
Chaos/Sonic & Tails
Triple Trouble/Sonic & Tails 2
1 8-bit
2 8-bit
Tails Adventure

Not quite half, OP. You should get better at math.
>>
>>9154178
I'd very happily play Sonic R over any of those games and I'm not just joking.
>>
>>9154810
Sonic R is a jank formula 1 racer. Sega made so many good racing games and that's the one you want?
>>
>>9154820
I'm just stating my truth, which is that I would rather play Sonic R at this moment over any of the games you listed.
>>
>>9154823
Your truth is wrong.
>>
>>9148960
It's nowhere near as good as the Genesis games, but it's still fun. I got it for the Saturn one Christmas and my brother and I played the shit out of it.
>>
>>9148960
That's because the vast majority of sonic games are shovelware garbage. R is a unique experience
>>
>>9149016
>>9153542
>Literally all sega has to do is emulate the gameplay/gamefeel and level design philosophy of Adventure 1 and 2
literally sonic 06
>>
All the Sonic games are so short how did Super Mario World come out before them and Sega never even tried to top it?
>>
>>9154820
No one said anything about other SEGA racers, OP said half of the other Sonic games
>>9154827
Stop pretending to be me you fucking bitch
>>
>>9151426
The word you're looking for is allowed. Just because you're """""allowed""""" to talk about GC in the retro game board doesn't mean it's retro, it just means we were forced to tolerate its presence by some retarded mod, or janny, or whoever had the brilliant idea.
>>
>>9154959
>stop pretending to be me
I'd have to become a nu-gamer zoomie for that to happen.
>>
>>9154827
>your opinion is objectively incorrect b-because i say so (inhales copium, then strikes a pose, thinking they look cool and not like a retard)
>>
>>9155093
How am I a zoomer when I'm talking about exclusively retro Sonic games including the 8-bit games like fucking Chaos and Drift?
>>
>>9155162
Post your birthdate then.
>>
>>9155302
1995
>>
>>9156908
>1995
So the zoomer reveals himself.
>>
>>9157505
1995 is borderline at best, most places will just call it millenial
>>
>>9157519
If you're not born in the 70s or early 80s you're a zoomer.
>>
>>9157505
If I'm a zoomer, then what are you?
>>
>>9157528

>>9154882
This, it really feels close to both of the Adventure games. Hell if you want to stretch it you could say the first Sonic stage in that game is meant to be a rip on SA1’s with the blue whale and tropical setting.
That and the crazy plot, the HUB world, the multiple storylines, just let down by technical issues and being overly ambitious on new hardware.
>>
>>9149032
>>9149014
Post-Y2k games aren't actually considered retro. The sticky was edited just to reduce the janitors' workload.
>>
This game made me realize drifting should've been implemented more in 3D sonic controls.
