He's a superhero, which in turn gets the underwear-on-the-outside tradition from color balance
In MM11's concept art, you can see ideas for his redesign that would've dropped the underwear but they kept it in the end, likely since it adds to his color palatte and keeps him from being completely cyan.

You seriously mean to tell me these dumb effers didn't think of putting CD-ROM images onto much-larger modern cartridges? MicroSD can hold a terabyte now, hundering facepalm.

>Master System Minis being viable
Master System was no NES, but it had a lot of cool shit.

>32x
See: SegaCD

If this company had competent people in charge, Genesis Mini would run everything from Master System 1 cards to Dreamcast. You could fit a shitload of Dreamcast games onto a Nintendo Switch cartridge and online multiplayer (was already on TV commercials in the 16-bit days, even in the west) is no longer an overwhelming challenge to put together. Dialup in the early 90s cost more than 3mB/s costs today, even if you ignore inflation.

Sega would come the fuck back if they did that. A freaking Raspberry Pi could probably run Dreamcast games, just use a better competitor and you're good to go.

BUBSY BAD is a zoomer meme.

The first 16-bit game was fun and well above average platformer, while the second one was okay. Neither are "bad" games.
The Gameboy and Jaguar versions are irrelevant because no one is referencing those ports when they trash the Bubster, but they do kinda suck.
I think the negativity around Bubsy is solely drawn from viewing Bubsy 3D through the post-Mario64 lens, which isn't really fair.

This. Basically until the NES there were joysticks and there were paddles and that was pretty much it. Cokecovision and Intellivisions controllers were actually confusing to people in that they were shaped like paddles but controlled like joysticks. Nintendo standardizing the cross d-pad was the point where random people instantly grasped what they were looking at and so there was need for a new term, "controller" or as my older son hilariously called them until he was about 4 and a half, 'trollers.

80's games were not all text. Early 80's games were graphically primitive like Atari 2600 and Intellivision. Nintendo and Sega made "realistic" graphics in the mid to late 80's. That said, the golden age of gaming was the 90's.
