      The Sega Ages ports of the first 2 games actually do have a cool new feature where it keeps track of your ring chains and saves your highest ring chain. That is much more meaningful than score is.

        Yeah I have seen some mods with this. Makes ring collecting feel more meaningful when the game actually acknowledges you didn't get hit long enough to horde a bunch of them.

      Score does matter in the later games in the series what with the ranking systems. I wonder how different the earlier games would be if they had ranks.

      It's just a way to grab a few extra lives as you go. Infinite sign bounce is somewhat fricked up by physics in some of the arenas and is a boring thing you are an autistic moron if you do, sign bounce is just for a fun celebration/to hit the hidden shields if you can remember where they are/occasionally/possibly to bump up to the next extra life if you're within 1000 anyways.
      I don't know why you would want it to be developed, the real stat to strive for would be time if you're gonna be a statgay since the character is about going fast.

          Dunno what your idea of bad level design is, but I always preferred the levels where you don't get stuck in a loop and end back where you were 2 minutes ago. There's one or two of those in each game but S3 has several. That kind of puzzle can be good but not when there's a death timer. I am kind of a brainlet

      That giant 3D Sonic moving around lags the frick out of the console and it doesn't read inputs during a lag frame so it's pure luck on if it registers you putting the code in or not.
      They compensated by making a different code for S&K/Sonic 3 but also made it harder to figure out initially as who expected it to be input in when you're playing the game proper?

        >more imediately enjoyable games with massive replayability.
        Speedrunning ads the same level of score autism as arcade gaming to non-arcades while still maintaining the linear progression that makes it more entertaining than arcades.
        Sure, movie-games suck, but the low time threshold arcade games work with makes it so you can hardly ever make a game with deeper mechanical coplexity to entice the player.
        You couldn't satisfiably capture Megaman Battle Network's features in an arcade game (maybe exclusively the versus mode), or the simple joy of enjoying Knights in the Nightmare's autistic involvement with the convoluted gameplay.
        Arcades fell because people were ready to move on from 1 stick and 3 buttons of complexity, and console games kept arcade score autism alive through self-inflicted challenge runs.
        There's nothing the arcade mentality can offer that can't be found in consoles, there's too much console mentality offers that can't be found in arcades.

            The objective in speedrunnable games is to get to the end, so speedrunning it is engaging the game while score attacking is actually keeping from doing that in order to explore a faux-Sisyphal mechanism.
            Score attacking in speedrunnable games is akin to ignoring the game's true purpose and finding a different, soulless boulder to roll up a hill.

      But Sonic 3 isn't designed like an arcade game, it's designed to be a long adventure with a definitive end point. Of course people don't care about the "full experience" because what this dumb homosexual is insisting is the "full experience" is something that not even the game itself cares about, evidenced by the fact that it never saves your high score. But even if it did save your score, doing challenge runs in a game doesn't constitute any percentage of a game's content, let alone fricking 75% of it. If that were the case, I could say that everyone who doesn't play Street Fighter with one arm tied behind their back isn't truly experiencing all that the game has to offer, which is fricking moronic

        You should try playing arcade games some time. This statement makes you sound like some grandma who thinks all video games are Pacman or Space Invaders. You are displaying bafflingly little understanding of video games for someone arguing on a video game board.
        >it doesn't save your score!!!
        Neither do most arcade games when you turn them off. What, do you want Sonic 3 to upload your score to your Genesis' hard drive? Do you want them to upload to your steam cloud? They're not paying for a battery in every cartridge just for that. But it DOES give you a means to save your score. Right in the manual.

        I'll agree with you that the claim "You've only played 25%" is over the top. But he's right that if you go for the bare minimum I-frame abusing "I'll just get 1 ring!" playthrough then there's much of the game you're not engaging with.

          This is a really dumb comparison because you aren't going to keep a game console on 24/7. When you get a high score it doesn't disappear the next day and I think you understand how dumb your statement is

          >do you want Sonic 3 to upload your score to your Genesis' hard drive?
          Sonic 3 does support saves, have you never even played the fricking game?

          You should try reading up about arcade cabinets some time. This statement makes you sound like some grandpa who thinks all arcade games lack battery saves. You are displaying bafflingly little understanding of video games for someone arguing on a video game board.
          >What, do you want Sonic 3 to upload your score to your Genesis' hard drive? Do you want them to upload to your steam cloud? They're not paying for a battery in every cartridge just for that.
          They have a save system, moron. Of course they can save your high scores, hell they could do it for each individual save file
          >But it DOES give you a means to save your score. Right in the manual.
          Imagine ruining your game manual by drawing your shitty high scores that you probably don't even remember correctly
          >But he's right that if you go for the bare minimum I-frame abusing "I'll just get 1 ring!" playthrough then there's much of the game you're not engaging with.
          Most bosses in Sonic games are piss easy regardless of whether you abuse I-frames or not. The only thing you're missing out on by doing that is having to learn the boss's patterns which, again, are so basic that there's not really any point. In normal levels, I-frames don't really help you all that much against the many other dangers in this game such as drowning, being crushed, falling into bottomless pits, or just plain losing your one ring due to knockback. It certainly makes it easier, but Sonic is already an easy as frick game so it makes little difference

        You're thinking about early 80's arcades. Arcade games with an ending are played for score as well. Hell, if you have the SEGA AGES Shinobi game you can look at replays, check the top scores replay. They play on the hardest difficulty and then they intentionally die at a certain level and milk respawning enemies to boost their score. They still 1CC the game on top of it. On the other hand people don't care about score in the Genesis Sonic games. There are simply better games to chase for score in.

        Even the Adventure era games still had a very arcade-like design in many ways
        People seem to miss that arcade-like design is core to Sega's design philosophy because they have been the biggest arcade producers for most of their existence
        Most of their home console games are arcade-like games that they just expand more to fit the home console market

          While I don't play 3D Sonic, they actualized what they wanted with scoring when it came with the grading in the Adventure games compared to the Genesis ones.

    Sonic was made for Time Attack, not Score Attack. Score focused Sonic games are fricking boring like SA2 making you take the long way around the rocket just to get the A Rank or Colors making you sit in Wisp Mode doing nothing just for the bonus points.

    I think the worst part is having a video focusing on score in Sonic isn't a bad thing, the games clearly keep it in mind all of the different play styles and replaying with a new goal could be fun but why does he need to act like he's an elitist about it? This narrative of one not completing the game or that it's easy mode to use core mechanics is something I'm sure the original developers didn't intend for, at least in this extreme.

    SA2 has a ranking system but you bet your ass this idiot would make a video of how you play it wrong despite getting A rank on everything, and btw, playing for ranks is boring in the long run, you just end up going for the most "point worthy" route all the time, making your experience just a carbon copy of any other.

      Playing for score changes how you approach the game. You interact with level elements you'd otherwise skip over, explore more of the stage, and the challenge of keeping your rings introduces such challenge that ignoring it is akin to an easy mode. It encourages you to replay those 2-5 minute levels to improve mastery, experiment, and see the rest of what the game has to offer.

    The scoring system in Sonic is obviously an afterthought. Also this moron is completely wrong when he says he thinks the spindash was added late into Sonic 2. I have no idea where he got that impression since the earliest build before even a single level was complete has the same spindash as the final game.
