Music used in order of appearance:
Sonic The Hedgehog 3 Genesis OST, Not That Serious 3

  • 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 PLworld.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Never knew Garfield & Sonic had a package game deal back then for pc, man the nostalgia! Out of curiosity, have you heard of the sega genesis game called Viewpoint based on the arcade? Never got ported as far as I can tell, which is a shame because it's such a bizarre shoot'm'up lost to time.

  • 12:59 ..."Nothing wrong with it"?? Even without playing a second of it myself, I can already see a major, gigantic problem with that game: the freakin' _CAMERA_ >_> I also love how the sneaky bastards in Sega's marketing department try to claim that S3&K apparently has 24 zones (spoiler: it doesn't). Seems to me that they weaseled in that figure by counting the zones from Sonic 3&K, Sonic 3, AND Sonic & Knuckles, _individually_ (despite the latter 2 "games" being just the two halves of the full game). >_>

  • Well, they started to really port games to PC in 1997 due to them botching the Sega Saturn and needing to make money from their software somewhere. Or at least, that's how I saw it. Having no mainline console to sell in 1998-1999 was a terrible decision and doomed the Dreamcast well before it came out.

  • There is also the Sega Rally games on PC. I think the original had a bonus track and the second game was more like a decent length version. I think you can get them to work on modern PCs with a bit of tinkering. Haven't worked out how to get the music for the sceond game running yet.

  • I never understood how people could play platformers on the PC with only a keyboard. One of the main reasons I'd shy away from PCs in those days for any kind of platformers or sports titles was the lack of a good uniform PC game controller (those widely available Gravis and Sidewinder pads at the time just sucked). The PC didnt have anything as good as any of the contemporary controllers such as a PS1, Genesis 6 button pad, or SNES controller. That's always been the strange thing specifically about IBM PC compatibles to me, because the older home computer platforms like the various Commodore and Atari computers had quite good controller support with a wide variety of compatible joysticks and paddles. For some reason, on the IBM PC, controllers were just shunned and unsupported for the longest time. Handheld gaming controlers were treated as some sort of weird anomaly on the PC. It really wasn't until Steam came around and kind of made Dualshock and Xbox controller support widespread and easy on the PC that I finally came around to PCs and actually started playing and enjoying the kinds of games I traditionally only played on consoles before on the PC. Finally the IBM PC had real game controller support with good quality controllers that most games were compatible with, and which finally (in my mind), only recently in the last decade made PCs viable for playing platformers, sports games, and sh'mups. Thanks for the great video!

  • Interestingly, out of Sonic R, Sonic CD, and the Sonic & Knuckles collection, Sonic R is the only one that isn't currently available brand new on eBay. I used to have these games for my Windows 98 PC when I was 5, and I just spent a whopping $23 for replacement copies of CD and S&K collection, both still in plastic that I never plan to open. Worth it for the nostalgia alone, considering how easy it is to play the games elsewhere.
