:lol: That reminds me of the day that the Super NES came out. My grandad bought it for me in Toys R US and when I got home all of my 'friends' chanted "SEGA! SEGA! SEGA!" because they were jealous (even though I had a Megadrive, which I thought was SHIT).Jack Bauer said:There were a few people at school\college who LOVED Sonic and said Mario was "way too slow and boring". Personally I think they must have had ecstacy tablets coming out of their ears to be able to play Sonic at the speed it ran at...
Nah mate care to explain why Sonic was crap back in the day? I think it was better than Mario because it Advanced! Mario was 100% the same from Mario 1 to 2 and 3, same powerups, same enemies same everything...El Diego said:Sonic was CRAP back in the day anyway, who needs one in 2006/7? Mario was/is a far better game . . .

Sonic introduced new puzzles and enemies and powerups in almost every outing! Sonic for me was a far more interesting game and only Sonic 2 Disappointed me with the removal of Hidden Palace Zone which would have been a great level!
No wonder you're liking FIFA so much.djdoc360 said:My comparisons with Sonic and Mario are thus.
Sonic 1 was good - Mario 1 was also good
Sonic 2 was excellent - Mario 2 was abosolute Wank
Sonic 3 & Knuckles was excellent when you had the 2 together - Mario 3 was ok.
What an earth does this have to do with my liking of Old School Sonic games over Mario?airjoca said:No wonder you're liking FIFA so much.
Same genre but a lot of years apart yeah? It's the same as comparing Half Life and Doom. They're the same genre, but only a ton of years apart.djdoc360 said:Im comparing them because get this... they are the same Genre!! Platform games? anyone heard of them??!!
And WTF does this have to do with Sonic?airjoca said:You know, even the die-hard FIFA07 fans on this forum should admit they're just hangin around here (evo-web) waiting for someone to start a «PES6 is "out"» thread...
I was no MegaDrive Fanboy mate! I enjoyed both consoles but for me I found Sonic games more interesting/entertaining than Mario ones. Believe it or not I did have a Super Nintendo as well same as Xbox and PS2 I had both of them as well.El Diego said:Yeah Sonic wasn't aimed at a younger audience at all:
Flying egg-men, cutsie bunny rabbits, collecting rings and running around fairgrounds.
Sniff sniff - I smell a SEGA Megadrive fan-boy nearby. :lol:
