    I know this is going to generate a lot of hate, but I actually enjoy Sonic R. It was one of my favorite games when I played it via Sonic Gems Collection on GameCube.

    When you realise that the standalone Sonic R box had a Y2K compliant badge on it. Ah yes, a racing game that needs to count it's own time. I guess it makes sense for time trial date codes, but really...

    Ironic that, the first 3D Sega games I played, were on PC. And then I played the console versions, and for the most part, I to this day prefer the PC versions. However, some of the games were better on Sega hardware, and I agree that Crazy Taxi was better on Dreamcast. Thing is, I only got to play it once on Dreamcast. Daytona USA was arcade first for me, I did not like most of the console versions... but the PC did improve the look, even if it failed on the FPS. I miss the days of arcades.

    FUN FACT: The person singing at 4:55 is Eric Martin. He is the singer and frontman of Mr. Big. And the crazy thing is that he did this after Mr. Big hit it big in the early 90's

    I still enjoy Sonic R too this day and genuinely don't understand the hate for it, I've never had issues with the controls and my main complaint about the game is the size, i just wish there was more tracks.

    I remember House of the Dead 3 also had a PC version. I enjoyed this game a lot in the Arcade, and I was more than happy to know there was a quite decent PC version around, quite enjoyable TBH.

    I played a lot of Sega Rally and Daytona USA's PC ports. Thing is, I still preferred playing them on my Saturn, since those PC ports had no Direct3D support for my Riva TNT and we're mainly coded to take advantage of MMX, so....they ran kind of iffy for me. When I upgraded to a P2-450 CPU things got better of course, but I was more into FPS's by that time and my interest in console games started dying out.

    Um wow... Afterburner DOS is terrible compared to the Amiga version. Framerate is still choppy but theyt got the visuals much closer to the arcade. Also for some reason Sega ported the PC version of Virtua Cop 2 to the Dreamcast Sega collection. Weird but there you go.

For Some Reason, I Couldn't Find Any Information On This Re-release Untill I Found Listings For It On Bid Sights! But The Image Of The Game In The Listings Didn't Match Mine! Mine Said "Sega Series" On The Top, I Couldn't Find Any Info Or Even a Single Image On This Unknown Re-release (Sadly, It Isn't a Big Box Re-release. It's In a Standard PC CD-ROM Case) This Isn't My Only Time Finding Unknown Things, One Time I Found a Motorcycle Crash Bandicoot Plushie From Universals Studios For R15 (It Wasn't Of The Motorcycle Crash From Crash 3, It Had a Different Motorcycle Jacket And Gloves). I Couldn't Find Any Information On It But Except For a Single Image, It Was For a Ebay Listing Which I Couldn't Find Anymore! Let Me Know If You Know Anything On This Unknown Re-release Of Virtua Fighter PC

    Every SEGA video games or arcade games was able to port on PC atleast since 1984 and eventually another one, unlike Nintendo, the port to PC was hard and sanctioned from other companies to want porting such as Donkey Kong and Mario Bros.

    Sonic CD on the Sega CD over here in Europe (or Mega CD) had the Japanese soundtrack. The PC version here had the US soundtrack, as did the Sonic Gems collection version. Needless to say I never played the Sega CD version so only found out about the Japanese soundtrack with the advent of NLdron.

    It just shows that for years, if you wanted to play games, you got a console. They were just better. Sure PC’s overtook them in later years, but in the 80’s/90’s you were so much better getting a console. I remember having Street Fighter 2 on the SNES and my friends PC version was utter shite by comparison. The music at colours were wrong, it was crazy bad when looking at what consoles at the time were doing.

    you should've at least gave a shoutout to the golden axe port. it's based on the genesis version rather than the arcade, with all the extra bells and whistles that entails (begginner and endurence modes and the extra final boss), uses the midpack sound driver (compettiter to ail/mss) for music playback, is the only sega dos port I know of with sound blaster support, and has loose sprites for all the characters.

  • rolingthunder86

    fun fact: the replacement songs exclusive to s&K pc collection don't originate there. they are actually from the 11/1993 prototype of the original genesis game before a certain moonwalker was (allegedly) hired to compose music for the game.
