Super Nintendo is superior.
The controls on the Genesis game always felt a little slow and clunky to me. Same as the Lion King and Jungle Book games.

I speedrun SNES Aladdin on almost a monthly basis.

the SNES version. and this is coming from a genny fan.

>> No.1254645

I played the SNES version for years and enjoyed it. I only played the Genesis version for the first time last year. I liked it, though I felt that the SNES was better. A few months later I went through them back to back and revised my opinion. The Genesis version is more challenging and more fun, I think, and I like the final couple areas more than the SNES areas (actually most Genesis levels were better I think).

So far it seems SNES is the preferred version here. For years I'd mostly always heard people say that the Genesis version was their favorite. Then again /vr/'s favorite DKC appears to be DKC3 when anywhere else you go it's almost always DKC2.

Bullshit. They're too completely different games.

I can tell you that I prefer the SNES one because I prefer the platforming to the action, but I wouldn't say either is better because they're not the same game.

It's because all the kids who grew up with the version and used poor nostalgic reasons moved on, and now new people are comparing them properly.

Back then, kids used to argue all the time which version of Aladdin was better. Everyone used the same argument: in the Genesis version, you get a sword. AWESOME!

>> No.1254691

I vote Genesis, mainly for the super smooth animation, but also because the soundtrack was closer to the film. I liked the level design in both, and it was neat that they weren't exactly the same in that regard, unlike a lot of licensed games.

Most NES or SNES games sound like complete fucking garbage as well. The same is probably true of every system.
But generally with those other systems we focus on the games that are good and have good art and music and stuff in them, because the other stuff isn't worth remembering or talking about.
Why can you not do that with the Genesis?

Why do some of you guys completely derail the thread to talk about garbage internet celebrities instead of the topic at hand?

Personally I think the Virgin Aladdin game is completely worthless, with its floaty controls, poor hitbox detection and farty adaptions of the movie soundtrack being used in stages where they don't really fit at all, when put up against Capcom's Aladdin which is pure precision platforming among the best of its kind and with detailed and clean graphics.

In a previous Aladdin thread I saw people writing up statements like "it has been unanimously agreed that the Virgin Aladdin is the better game", and "Genesis Aladdin is objectively better". Please keep that level of commentary coming, I'm planning to use these for a song set to Arabian Nights and need a little more material before the lyrics are complete.

I'm a huge SNES fan but I always found the Genesis version of Aladdin much better than the average SNES version and the best Disney video game I've ever played. No wonder why the Genesis version was more popular. I don't remember anyone playing the SNES version.

snes version is a well-designed game all-around. genesis version is a clusterfuck of design that people only like because "ogm aladdin uses a sowrd" even though the mechanic itself is shitty and frustrating and doesnt fit his character at all. i kinda like the genesis version's graphics a little better though.

>Genesis
-Better graphics and animation
-followed up the movie a lot better than the SNES version[it applies for the soundtrack too]
-Action oriented[hence the sword]
>SNES aladdin
-Better controls
-Platforming focused
-Better level design
-Soundtrack was good but it didnt had some theme remixes of the movie

i think its a draw,both games are totally different,Genesis might follow up the movie a bit better because the soundtrack,however i dont remember aladdin using a sword outside of the battle with Jafar in the movie but if i remember correctly,you didnt even used a sword in the SNES final boss

TL;DR:Both versions are equally good so fuck anyone who says there must be only one
Seriously,its like trying to compare a square to a circle

Yeah, the SNES version is more well-rounded.
