Okay so, recently I replayed a bunch of older Sonic games. Had no worries with the 2D games, but I was honestly expecting to not like the Adventure games as much as I used to. Hell, when I booted them up briefly a few months back (it was the first time in a while I had access to a system that could play my GCN games), I remember not having much of a good time.
But as it turns out actually sitting down to properly play them was a different experience. The flaws are more noticeable now but when it comes down to it, they're still the same games I remembered. The only place I ever cut corners was with Mad Space and Cannon's Core...and with the latter it was my fault. I accidentally reset the entire thing during one of the later sections and I'm sorry, I actually love Cannon's Core both conceptually and in execution, but--no, I wasn't going to go through the whole thing again that soon.
On the other side of the coin, I'm sorry but I don't enjoy Kirby Air Ride much anymore. City Trial is fun but uhhhh, I've noticed I usually lose interest pretty quickly. I've never bothered to unlock everything in it either. If they ever make a follow up (unlikely, but) it'd be nice if they gave us more to do and y'know, made other modes fun..
