Moreso here than anywhere else on the internet, I know I'm preaching to the choir with this one! My goal here was to provide a video that people might refer to when someone says they don't "get" classic Sonic. I figure nobody like that is going to want to watch a 30+ minute video telling them why they're wrong, so I made it as succinct and direct as I could. I kept it simple, sticking to the idea that Sonic is a game that's made to be replayable, and unfortunately, "replay value" is out-of-focus nowadays. I know there's quite a lot I left out in trying to keep it short, but that's what all my hour-long retrospectives are for, haha. I also included an anecdote based on something I wrote here years before I ever even had a YouTube channel, so thanks for kickstarting my thought process! Hope it's a good one!
