Donkey Kong Country 2 > Super Mario World

Let's review:
>Far more engaging platformer (no capefeather to fly over everything)
>More challenging and actually takes skill to beat
>Prettier game
>Incredible variety of obstacles and level design
>Awesome as fuck music

SMW is great and it has the exploration factor but DKC2 kills it in everything else.

>> No.2518346

>No capefeather to fly over everything

Nobody is forcing you to fly over everything, dumb ass.

>> No.2518354

its still an option though dickface. eat shit.

>> No.2518368

I agree, I think it's vastly better in every way and one of the best games ever.

I don't understand how anyone would prefer SMW. For me SMW is a step back from SMB3 and sometimes barely even good. Agree about the music as well, while with SMW it was bland.

>> No.2518383

That doesn't make it any less of an invalid point.

>More challenging and actually takes skill to beat

Most of the challenge comes from the small field of view and obstacles that can't be circumvented. There's no variety of obstacles. It's just a different arrangement of the same obstacles repeated for many levels. Whole game feels like you're running through a cramped hallway while being only able to see a few feet ahead.

>> No.2518417

I agree with you but I like Yoshi's Island even more.

I just love sprites and the prerendered graphics I feel haven't aged as well. They're still great and the atmosphere is done astonishingly well but game feels a little bit weaker because of what was really just a graphical gimmick. The controls feel a little bit less responsive and I've yet to play a game with prerendered graphics that doesn't have a slightly awkward feeling to it. Don't know if anyone else feels similarly.

That being said, most of your points amount to "better this better that better x x and y" which is more of a list of opinions than an argument.

>> No.2518423

I think DKC2 is a better game than World but it's also silly to compare the two. They excel in different areas and both are great games.

Also the pre-rendered graphics still look great to this day. I feel like people who say they haven't aged well are playing them on LCD screens or with filters or some shit.

Except being fair. who the fuck wants to redo a chain of levels 4-5 times every time the fuck up on a jump or lose to a boss?

It should have allowed you to save after every level.

I'm actually not a fan of Super Mario World. I'm a bit obsessive with games...I have to beat them at the maximum percentage and without using guides.

I wasn't able to do that with Super Mario World because of one stupid secret.

That stupid secret where you have to jump off Yoshi under the first exit gate to find a second one behind it. Who the fuck is going to do that? Waste a Yoshi at every exit gate to look for secrets behind it? That secret really pissed me off. Turned me off the entire game because of it.

>> No.2518938

>nearly forgotten
nigga, both dkc returns and tropical freeze were resounding successes

>> No.2518946

the intended way was to use a cape to fly underneath it. Also if I recall right there was a block or message speaker right behind the goal post to serve as a hint, and it was a red level with a very linear path and few places to hide an exit, so you knew the secret had to be in there somewhere.

>> No.2518952

when was that? I seem to recall two levels that having something like that, cheese bridge and chocolate mountain

>> No.2518970

This was a bitch to figure out. The instruction manual alluded to it what with Soda Lake being marked on the map, then there not being any other clear way into Star Road 3.
The fact levels with red markers had more than one exit is also a clue, but that isn't really helpful because the level also has Yoshi wings at the checkpoint.
I did manage to figure it out all on my own without guides and before the internet. None of my pleb friends ever managed to figure it out and had to ask me how to do it.

Definitely the most obtuse part of the game though. Tubular is a close second.

>> No.2518982

The Chocolate Mountain secret was the one where the goal post was suspended by a platform and you had to use a cape to fly underneath it.

that's one of the main reasons DKC2 is great

there's true punishment for error, whereas SMW gives you thousands of lives so you never have fear of death

DKC2 is the best 2D platformer I've ever played, and I played a lot more SMW as a kid. Only returning to it now I've realised just how fucking great it actually is.

DKC1 is also splendid. When I'm done with these, I'm gonna give DKC3 a proper chance, too, since everybody said it's shitty but I never tried it!

DKC2 is the best 16 bit game ever. The levels are well designed and visually interesting, the soundtrack is superb, the graphics are the prettiest on all 16 bit games, the characters are charming, the boss battles are well paced...

Basically, the whole use of any imageboard is to stay anonymous and post your opinion without any restrain or shame.
Being a namefag just means the guy is helplessly seeking attention and giving himself some importance. Just look at any namefags on this board. Most are completely condescending, self indulging pricks forcing their opinions as factual truth. NESfag, the one in this thread... The list goes on. Altough, ecchiweaboofag doesnt seem to be an arrogant buffoon, he is still always seeking attention with his softcore porn chinese cartoons.

Just ignore that guy or any namefag/tripfag and keep discussing the RETRO GAMES.

>> No.2520569

Most of these points are misleading are downright stupid.

Mario and Donkey Kong games are both fucking easy. The difficulty difference between them is fucking insignficant. If you wanted to nominate a platformer for it's challenge you could have mentioned Ghosts and Goblins series: not the watered down console versions. I'm talking about the arcade ones.

SMW also looks a lot better when played on a proper screen instead of on a 1920x1080 screen on an emulator.

The sense of exploring in SMW is what made it so good. You could skip all over the world and find tons of secret exits. So much more engaging than just finding a few extra lives.

>> No.2520595 [DELETED] 

Another shitstain on this thread. You're retarded. There was no reason for you to bring up that hard game or emulators.
