There's nothing to get. It's a score attack game that values grinding over skill. It was mostly just a technical demo for sonic teams new 3d engine, because they were unwilling to use Sonic for it as it the entire technology behind the game was experimental.

So experimental that they still haven't managed to fix controls and camera in Sonic games today, 24 years later.

It was never as good as Saturn fans said it was.

It's still a very solid 8/10 but I wouldn't say it was the best thing on the system. Honestly it was an interesting departure, but I can imagine it wasn't really what people wanted to play back then. Over time its grown quite a massive cult following and has had moderate success in the forms of semi-sequels and a remake, but meh.. I never really understood what the appeal was.

>> No.6325917

I remember playing this at like an EB games, or maybe a best buy or circuit city decades ago and I was totally baffled by it. The controls were really difficult to get used to and it was impossible to really master any of the "tracks" or "races" or whatever you called the little sub sections you'd fly through collecting blue orbs and shit. That and you can't even see the whole area since the action is zoomed right up to the player's character.

I mean, all fanboys participate to a degree, but Sony are consistently the worse.
Every time there's a N64 or a Sega Saturn thread, you always see Sonyponys shitposting them, don't see that many Ninty or Sega fans shitposting PS1 threads.
Then there's the entire decade of evidence of Sony shitposting on /v/. That one black namefag whose name I forgot.

You're a delusional faggot. You cant have a crash bandicoot thread without at least 5 autists popping in just to remind us all that they think Mario 64 was better.

Also. In my experience, nintenyearolds are incapable of having an civil thread without mentioning how N64 was supposedly better than PS1. This usually irks the idorts in the thread who liked their PS1 more and starts up the argument. Then passers by see bits of console wars as they scroll by and it snowballs. But if the retarded nintendies had just STDU for once, none of it would fucking happen.

It's not as though you see sony threads where the fanboys rant and rave about how much better they think PS1 is than everything else back then. They're usually talking about the games.

The super soulful comfy levels and the ultra fast paced arcade gameplay dont mesh well. How am I supposed to take in the aesthetics, hatch eggs and whatnot If to score I need be rushing non-stop repeating the same movement over and over? The feeling of flight gets wasted on such an intense form of gameplay.
At very least I wish there was a mode without a timer and that lets you switch between nights and the kid on foot where you could just explore and fuck around the level doing pirouettes and whatnot for as long as you want, even better if there were some more lax tasks like finding hidden collectibles or something.

>> No.6328370

Arcade games should stay in the arcades. When you play a console or computer game you expect depth and longevity, not a game that you'll beat in a few hours or less, grow bored of and shelf, never to go back to (unless however you suffer from autism and actually care about replaying a game just in order to get marginally higher numbers than the previous times you played it).

you're looking at it wrong. the soulful comfy levels are what you're going to spend dozens of hours looking at while you practice and improve. it's much better to spend that time in a comfy laid back world than listening to shit like metal squad for the 200th time after the novelty wears off.

Ah yes, better to play a linear story game (with the writing of a young adult novel) you beat after a few hours and no longer have a desire to play than play something that you can develop a skill on, continually setting ceilings for yourself and breaking through them to get thousands of hours of gameplay out of.

if SeGAY would vastly expand the levels, give you more characters and release a level editor it would be a great title.
