I agree with this a lot. Ecco is one of if not my favorite 16 bit game and a solid part of that is the music. Though I like the CD version's soundtrack also, I don't think it fits the game nearly as well. The original feels like it was made to go along with the game, Spencer's music sounds like what someone would make if they were told it was a game about playing a dolphin but didn't know much besides that.

I still like the Genesis better for the last level, but really we all know there's only one piece of music that truly fits, they just couldn't use it.

It's one of my favorite games of old. Unique but wonderful controls and and good dose of challenge. I understand why a lot of people don't care for it though.

Personally I think authenticity is overrated, especially if you already played the game on hardware. Ecco is one of my favorite games ever for example, I've bought almost every release it's had, it's upgraded version was one of the reasons I got a Sega CD in the first place. But up until a couple years back when the glorious 3DS version came out, almost any time I played it was on PSP due to convenience and how nice it looks on the screen (it's still how I prefer to play Tides of Time) I even still had my Nomad and the carts, but the Nomad in reality kinda sucks.

Also I know some people like them, but I despise CRTs and if you're using hardware that's mostly what you're stuck with. I'd never tell you how you should best enjoy your games, and there's something funny to me about you trying to be authoritarian over how I enjoy mine. These days old hardware has zero interest for me.

Good design. It isn't across the board, there are still plenty of shitty 2D games the way there are shitty 3D games. But when designed and executed well, they are wonderful.

From the polls over the years it's usually been the case from what I can tell. And we can still reminisce about games, I'm in my 40's and do it here most every day. I also almost entirely emulate now though as well.

I'm an old fart who grew up playing these games and I still like them? We don't have to like the same kinds of music lol.

A few games had music I dug, but most just isn't my bag.

I hate to say it, but people like you are why younger posters get made fun of so much.

Yeah neither of those shows interested me either. Though from what I can gather our tastes on games are almost as different.

At the time, given everything that had come before it, the opera scene really stood out as something special. But like I say, the context is very important.

>>4230904
They are right, aside from a couple of specific bits it's not super hard. It just plays unlike anything else and is a game about patience under pressure which is unusual.

I like the Genesis version for it's music and the CD version for it's added levels. My favorite by quite a wide margin though is the 3D port by M2 on the 3DS which makes the game shine in a whole new light.

>we only got a few 3D remakes like Kid Icarus, Kirby, but where's SMB3? that game would look gorgeous on 3D.

Nintendo thought it would be fairly simple to make the games look good in 3D but quickly realized how hard it was to make it look good and that's why they stopped. It is a shame though, the few they released were great. Kirby 3D is really charming.

M2 perfected it though, all theirs looked incredible. This is actually one of my favorite uses of the 3D effect on the system. It brings old games to life in a whole new way. It's the only way I play Ecco now.

>For example, someone once told me that Ecco the Dolphin was a boring and uninspired game and that the soundtrack sucks.

To be fair, Ecco is one of my favorite games of all time and I've been recommending it for years and years. I know many people I otherwise respect and like who formed that opinion on their own.

I always recommend Ecco even though it's not for everyone. It's so unique everyone should at least try it.

What kind of games do you like?

Beyond Oasis
Ranger X
Comics Zone
Herzog Zwei
Gaiares

some of my other random favorites.

You should ask yourself why you feel that way. To me it's the opposite in many ways, but you're not me.

>1. Did you grow up before the year 2000 to actually truly experience retro gaming?

Born in '74 so yes

>2. Does it ever depress you that the retro generations are very old now by today's standards?

Not at all. That's how things go.

>3. Do you feel awful that modern gaming isn't anything like retro gaming?

Also no, not at all. Because I think gaming is still very similar and in most of the ways it's different, it's markedly better.

>4. Do you think retro games will eventually become long forgotten about in the not too distant future?

Many yes, but most classics will stay classics.

>5. If you could go back to experience it all over again would you?

Maybe yes, maybe not. This is a genuinely hard question.
