Best game in the original Sonic trilogy (and Knuckles)

Thinking back to the 'good old days'. Feel personally platformers like Sonic, Mario felt innovative in a way that doesn't quite measure today. (though this said Mania feels close to the originals)

Vote your favourite Sonic game here. :)

Forgiveness. I feel that the more people pray to our greatest source/God/mathematical equality for world peace, the more and more it manifests into reality (until our next spiritual death).

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

Mania does a good job at making the player feel like they're playing a classic sonic game. i feel that shovel knight, megaman 9, megaman 10 and sonic mania or bloodstained: curse of the moon are all games that on the hood have modern game design and hidden mechanics that didn't really exist back in the days, but they FEEL like those old games

they play a lot like what a lot of people "remember" those old games playing; when in reality if they went back and played the older ones there would be small flaws and  primitive game design within them.

they often do a good job at emulating the best parts of older games, but still keeping in modern and fair game design. such as "coyote time"; that hidden mechanic used in many modern side-scroller platformers where running off a ledge you still get a split second to jump (in the air essentially) before you fall. a hidden mechanic that helps the game feel modern and fresh without taking away the general feel of those beloved classics

i personaly like these games. it makes you feel good and they do a good job at giving you the same feeling of playing those old games; even though under the hood, what you're playing is pretty much a new game with a retro aestetic and borrowing some old design ideas that really worked.
like imagine if these newer games used passwords to save the game, they just wouldn't because that in itself feels so clunky and old by design and doesn't feel as nice as using more modern saving methods generally

But yeah, I picked Sonic 3 for the vote, but if mania was there i would pick mania.
(also, Sonic Cd is absent i noticed :o )

S&K because it has Flying Battery Zone and is therefore superior to all the others.

Sonic 2, as I actually enjoyed it. S3&K is a very close second.


Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.
