Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis version is hard to compete against. Surprised me how bad the GBA release was in comparison.

In my opinion these two games where made for different reason. The genesis version was aimed to do the best they could technically and make a new mascot for sega. The GBA version which was very late in GBA life cycle was just meant to be something to keep you amused for a small amount of time which of course meant less effort went into it. I would likem to the genesis version being a large burger and chips and the GBA version just being a light cracker.

Makes sense. The GBA and handhelds in general seem to fit the system on the go to keep you busy till you get home. Home consoles fit the full version of a game when you have the time to play.

Very profound Ryhui.

Helps me to understand why some gamers prefer a certain version over another version of a game. I think most of us enjoy the experience of playing and some of us want the full experience.

If I wanted a Sonic fix and the GameBoy Advance was close it would be easier than hooking up the Sega Genesis or using a modern console to play the Genesis Collection.

Turn on the television, plug the system in or connect it to the television if it is not already. Put the cartridge or disc in the console. Plug in a controller or make sure the batteries are charged if wireless. Lots of work compared to picking up a handheld.

All about convenience for me.
