Then what I said is exactly what you ment. You think your better because your opinion in something makes you better. I personaly couldn't care less about your selfworth I'm not sure why you brought it up. Now your arguing that Speed runners are like pop music fans when people who play anrgy birds would be way more akin to said fans.

You dropped the ball mang. The speed runners thing works liek a charm, unless you got a poll from thousands of people all hand selected that played both systems like these guys, I suggest you step down off that stacked pyramid of horses.

I'm not forcing you to believe what I do, I love games, games are for fun. More people are still having more fun with their Snes games it would seem, so says Youtube.com, Tasvideos.org an Speedemos.com. All which have both systems plus many more an large communites of people. Can you give me a reason to think this massive group of gamers is wrong?

[QUOTE="Heirren"]

[QUOTE="rilpas"]

wait, then why did you pick my post, Valknut is the one using speedruns as an argument WHY the SNES is better, because apparently there are more SNES speedruns then there are genesis ones.

I get that people may prefer the SNES over the Genesis, but using speedruns as an argument is just facepalm worthy

bultje112

He's got a point. In fact, if that is true that means there are more snes youtube vids, which is very saying of its staying power and popularity. My cousin had a genesis as a child, and these days he'll say the snes was the better console. When people get old enough they drop the nostalgic factor and just tell it like it is. SNES is the better system. A lot of the games have yet to be topped, and likely never will because that form of game design has been taken over by what hits shelves today.

wow. that couldn't be more wrong. it's completely the opposite. the older people get the more the nostalgia factor comes into play. and whata bs logic. there are more dutch people on twitter than of any other country in teh world. so netherlands must now be the biggest country in the world then

How old are you? Because I'm finding it quite the opposite.

The last thing you said did not make any sense.

The reason I used TAS, not youtube, I never once used outube by the way. Was they are gamers, good ones. They love games form those consoles, like us. They are more then 2 people like us. They haven't been forced to chose one or the other like us, the just have.

More of them chose SNES. Please go fidn an example of gamers that chose Sega with some sort of crutch attached. Because I have found 2 great example of more retro hardcore gamers choosing SNES.

Well if I look at which game are speed run, then all genres, if I look at which games people play on youtube, all of them. I mean If I use my opinion all of them. If I use the majority of people who play these consoles still to this day, most of them.

You can do the work yourself, i have proven that I'm right you jsut lack something called perspective to see it from other peoples views.

If only me an you mattered they tied if I went out an asked a random gamer, the info I can draw from sales, from speed runs, from youtube, from general opinion. All point to him picking SNES under all circumstance.

You are right if I asked someone in ILOVESEGA .com they would pick sega, no kidding right?

If I ask someone from a non bias site aka, either of the ones I have listed they will 67% of the time pick Snes over sega. Why because it has better games. i dont care about genres or popularity, or lenght of games. Thats not the question. The question is which system does the majority of legacy gamers prefer, answer is Snes.

And I don't post either, but the fact remains that it is still a measureable means to compare the two consoles. I've never heard anybody bring this up before, but it is a very good point. It is polling gamers without really asking an opinion. Proof is in the pudding here--where the pudding is people actually playing the games instead of some nostalgic opinion.

Because it is the more widely played system, to this day.

how do you want to prove that?

The youtube point is not 100%, but it can be taken as a very large poll--a blind poll, at that, which is even more telling because it isn't directly asking the person the question.

the youtube point is 0%. for instance japanese people upload a lot less to youtube than western countrys that are small. that's a cultural thing. that's why you see most youtube uploads are from usa. not because most people live there. brazil don't even have youtube. spain and italy use something else as well.

are you even aware that snes failed in europe? nintendo had a 15% marketshare and megadrive had nearly 70% it was the same with the nes and master system. it's also reason why nintendo often postponed having a nintendo of europe and central distribution at that as they failed to get any foot in the door in the old world. only in france was nintendo more popular than sega.

It is still very telling. Europe doesn't have access to youtube, or a similar type of site?

it does, though as I stated before, each european country has it's own youtube and I'm not entirely certain just how popular speedruns are outside the US and Japan

Type Super Nintendo into google, see how many search results you get.

Now do the same for Sega Genisis.

There you go, google isnt just english sites, thats pretty worldwide. There is nothing else I can do...

But what does that say about each respected system?
