Was the released version of Sonic 3 really just a prototype?

  1. From a creator point of view, I feel as if that one Lucas quote on how "a movie is never finished but is only abandoned" kinda applies to video games as well.

    I mean, even when they're "finished", they're arguably never really "finished". Kinda like how DLC and updates are handled like you get now-a-days. (Jon Burton's Sonic 3D Blast Directors Cut comes to mind)

    Of course, technically S&K is the physical equivalent of DLC and updates that you can play stand-alone.

    Nah, I wouldn't call it a prototype. But with all the ways that things can go left during gameplay, Sonic 3&K is —as I was telling my son some time ago— "basically one giant glitch". Especially the Sonic 3 portion.
