I've never played any of the games in question, and I'm not actually making an argument. However, if the game hits you with obstacles that are impossible to react to, that would be a flaw.

Do you honestly think platforms in a platformer are flaws??

*mindblown*

If you look carefully at what I posted, you'll see that I actually didn't say that, or even imply it.

Mind.

Blowned.

Blanko considers stopping for platforms a flaw. Among other things.

Okay. Do you want me to talk to him about that for you, or...?

You seemed to inject yourself into the conversation with absolutely no background knowledge of the subject, so sure.

This thread is the most disappointing thing since 'dark souls is terrible'.

I am genuinely curious why you're so buttdisgruntled about a routine thread split. It wasn't even my idea, you know

How fast does it take for someone to react to something?

You really do talk in circles.

No, you do. You're the one who said that the sluggish movement is fine when you're encouraged to go fast; thus, when you're not encouraged to go fast, it's not fine. I really don't see how it can be any more simple than that.

Blanko doesn't know how to logic. Just because A implies B doesn't mean that NOT A implies NOT B. The original implication makes no statement about the implications of the opposite condition.

The fact that Sonic provokes such deep and logical thinking just goes to show how great the games truly are.

No, this society has seen several dozen pages of arguing whether or not north and south are opposites. We're just crazy.

Indeed, but we've already covered those implications, which is why this shouldn't be that hard. Encouragement to go fast was the given justification for the sluggish controls. When you can't go fast, that justification doesn't apply. And we don't have another one. So, either the sluggish controls are justified for another reason (which we don't have), or they are not fine.

Correct. You are in no position to assume one or the other.

I am in a position to hold a view, and I'm explaining my reasoning behind it. If people offered alternative justifications then that view might change, but so far that has yet to happen.
