not any more obviously. DiScuss
but can be summed up thus:
SONIC IS SHIT
As a game? I'm not even going to dignify that with a
Super Mario Bros 2
Super Mario Bros 4
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario All Stars
I'm afraid that's absolute bullshit pal as any sane man would know.
speed. That soon gets pretty tiresome.
to get the full speed you had to have a genesis. It's about the MUSIC, the LEVEL DESIGN, the SOUL, the RINGS, the OMFG amazing.
Sonic is absolute shit by comparison.
I feel like I'm in the nineties.
I fully endorse this post.
Sonic 3/Sonic & Knuckles in that combined game > any Mario game.
but i preferred sonic
I think mario is a better game. I just preferred sonic.
Like the film Pi. It's one of my favourite films, but I wouldn't say it's an amazing film.
I love it, it's so stupid, but pretty cool as well.
why would you want to play as a fat middle aged plumber when you could be an stupidly fast blue hedgehog?
also the music was better, it looked nicer and was just cooler
the video games featuring the fat plumber are, legitimately, some of the most beautifully crafted pieces of gaming history ever created.
Even the oldest, bestest Sonic games have dated terribly. Oddly, Nintendo actually made the best Sonic game ever in Unirally.
i used to dream about them being in a game together and they finally are! sadly, i couldn't give a toss now.
does anyone remember NiGHTS - that was fucking awesome and beats both mario and sonic.
nights is pretty much perfect
Who'd have though mario and sonic would even want to go to the olympics together!
I am looking forward to trying that Smash Brothers game though.
had a go the other day. it has a kind of story too (well the one player mode did)
so my judgement is limited. seemed like normal smash bros but looked nicer and was more fun
but as a game, nothing on sonic in the good days
up until Mario 64. Subsequently absolutely wrong.
hell, the first SMB, even.
See also: Yoshi's Island.
for being better than THESE morons.
but if you wanted substance you had to go with the plumber.
mario is excellent yes, but sonic. Sonic is a bit more excellent
You're comparing a series which spans the NES years to one which started out on the Megadrive. 'Rehashing the castles' was very much a product of what could be done with the 8-bit consoles; by the time Mario World came out the Castle levels were some of the most varied and impressive in the entire game (remember the ones with the masssssive spikes that you had to wedge yourself in next to?).
Yoshi's Island also had better bosses than all the Sonic games put together. A huge round man whose pajama bottoms fell down a bit with every hit? Yes.
I need to play this game again soon!
I never did find all the red coins.
was Sonic 2 with TIME TRAVELLING and awesome music.
Mario was way better.
you concentrate on averting the credit crunch. quickly.
Mario > Sonic
I've almost got the Credit Crunch sorted!
Sonic > Mario
until Super Mario 64
then Mario > Sonic forever
People who like Mario also wait for the man to go green, even if there's no traffic coming.
DiS's answer to Frogger?
Traffic dodging ftw.
= a complete waste of time
no no NO YOURE WRONG SO YOU ARE
