HylianSane commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Mario Kart DS was one of the best built Kart games for its time, with handheld multiplayer and a pretty decent range of content. Up until that point, quality-wise, DS was the best. From then until MK8, I feel like they tried to do so many different gimmicks with the series that it overshadowed what Mario Kart should have been at its core: A solid racing game with the best track design out there and plenty of content.

Mario Kart 64 will always hold a special place in my heart, but going back and playing that game now after getting used to the improvements to the series over the years makes it hard to really enjoy. Therefore, 64 is purely nostalgic to me now and I would have to say, without a doubt, that Mario Kart 8 is the best all-around title in the series.

HylianSane commented on Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World:

The only thing better about the original over this GBA version is the option for two-player. Otherwise, I see this as a superior port. The addition of not only a specific sprite set for Luigi but his own moves and Yoshi abilities, as well as the inclusion of the Yoshi coin collection menu, I only see how players would lose-out on the various improvements should they choose the original instead.

My biggest gripe with this being released is the same one I had about Advance 1, and that is no discount for those who already purchased the original game.

HylianSane commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

I'm not going to complain one single bit about GBA being on Wii U and not 3DS right now, regardless of how much sense it makes. However, the subheading for this article really got my attention: "Business needs trump the natural order".

In my opinion, a good way to include both of these would be to have by now introduced GameCube titles into the Virtual Console. The "natural order" would expect Wii U to be able to handle these games as those systems which closely resemble the Wii U's power (Xbox 360 and Ps3) both had original Xbox games and Ps2 games added to their library. Hell even N64 games have yet to make an appearance on the Wii U VC, although it is almost a foregone conclusion that they will be added at "some point". That point should have been about six months ago in my honest opinion, and by this point we should be seeing GC games being introduced.

As a kid, I distinctly remember going to the store with my dad to buy Sonic 3 for the Genesis. When I got back out to the car, I realized that they had mistakenly sold me a GameGear Sonic game, so we took it back in and returned it. Instead of getting Sonic 3, I ended up getting Aladdin at the last minute.

As big of a Sonic fan as I was and still am to this day, I have never regretted changing my decision on getting this game instead. It was simply brilliant, and is a constant reminder of how bad video games based on movies or shows these days are compared to the glory days of old.
