>games without a save or password system and limited continues

How did you boomers play this shit back then? The biggest offender is pic related for me. Only 3 lives and you can only earn continues by collecting rings in a stupid and annoying bonus stage.

Agree. There is no way anyone could legit be this bad at games that they can't beat Sonic and are complaining about its difficulty.

Some people really are very bad at games so other try to be decent and help them. When people make jokes like this, it's kind of sick, like mocking retarded people.

Hate to break it to you OP but Sonic 1 is a bad game.

Actually, there are no good Sonic games.

Play the Sonic Jam version.

>> No.5202269

Well it's not that I can't beat it. I was just discouraged from playing it any further after finding out about this. I think it's bad game design/artificial difficulty.

>> No.5202294

>artificial difficulty
So what's your ultimate objective here? To waste other people's time? Well you're already wasting your own.

Sonic 1 is good up until the 4th stage. then everything afterwards is slow agonizing memorizing stages.i dont mind them atleast the 5th stage but i can admit the game changes a bit there to not be as interesting or take advantage of sonics gameplay

Gotta agree with you on that.

You can get lives from collecting coins in the1.1 revision.

Still though, the game is pretty bad. Going from Green Hill zone to Marble is prolly the biggest dip in level design there is in any game.

Imagine crying about a 15 minute game not having saves.

Try Sonic 2 on the Gamegear if you want a bad time.

>> No.5203406

Good advice.

If you don't want a cheat, Green Hill Zone Act III is a stage you can easily get 3 free lives, kill yourself and do it again. Pretty easy to get a good stretch of lives to cushion through some of the more trail and error non-sense in some states.

I can't even COMPREHEND being this bad at video games, what the fuck is wrong with you? I could beat this shit before I was even speaking full sentences. You keep picking up rings and grab a continue if you need to. It's easy. It's so fucking easy.

Things were different back then. You don't really get sent far back due to check points and auto saves. When you ran out of lives and continues and got sent back to the title screen it was game over, and I mean it is time to turn off the game and put in a new game or do something else. Video games weren't something you autistically grinded out from game over after game over after being thrown to the title screen many times in a single day.

>> No.5205809

You played it until you died, then you turned the shit off and went outside to play because what else were you going to do? I spent most of my younger years outside playing in the dirt because a NES game was only good for a few minutes before you got your shit wrecked, so I could marathon all my games as far as I could get in like an hour and then had to do something else.

I would play football (soccer) all day every day if I could. That's what we used to do when we were kids. Then after elementary school for some inexplicable reason, it seemed harder to get people to play street football. There were clubs but they were like once a week, and they also had autistic, rigid people running it that wouldn't just let us play. By the age of 14 or 15, people stopped playing street football and I could never understand why. I wasn't a great club player and I believe that they didn't give me the ball enough to play, also my knee never recovered perfectly from one injury (excuses) and eventually quit club football but shit at 33 years old I'd go out in a heart-beat to play street football for hours again. I can get a similar experience with videogames sometimes still, but you don't get exercise, you don't build muscles, balance, powerful lungs, they're ok but it's not the same. It's how natural all that is, it's so good for people, no wonder people in modern society are getting so fat and autistic.
