That’s fair. I’m just trying to frame it in the context of these tier lists and also answer why they’re not as remembered/highly regarded. Though most people here place it just under the classics or on par with Sonic 1 which is pretty reasonable IMO. The lack of ports probably contributes to lower awareness outside of Retro. Unless you’ve got a DS/GBA around or emulate, you’re out of luck. This pretty much precludes the fanbase that’s under 15 or so. They’re also old without the prestige of being the “classics,” so younger people will probably overlook them for that reason as well.
