Updates on my gameroom

On one of my tables, I have set up the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis
side by side. To be fair, they both display on the same model of TV,
AND the Sega Genesis is connected via A/V cables. Comparing the same
games side by side is very interesting.. sometimes the SNES comes out
on top (Mortal Kombat, hands down), and sometimes the Genesis is the
winner (Pit Fighter, Krusty's fun house).

On another table, I have the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision II
running side by side - both of them displaying on similer model vintage
"Zenith Space Command" TV's (which I collect), but in this case I ran
into a slight problem: when the Intellivision and Atari are both on at
the same time, there is interference with the atari screen (The
Intellivision picture is just fine!). I alleviated the problem a bit by
switching from channel 2 to 3 on the atari switch, but it's still a bit
distorted. Any ideas? You think of I switch TV's it could help? I tried
moving the systems away from each other to no avail.

Next, I'm thinking of running the Colecovision and Atari 5200 games
side by side, or the C=64 and Atari 800XL.

Also, assuming that SONIC ADVANCE is what Sonic the Hedgehog would have
looked like on the SNES, I might set up a Genesis Sonic side by side
with Sonic Advance running on the Game boy player. Any thoughts?

Speaking in general terms only, the SNES usually won graphically when both
systems were put side-by-side. Of course, the Genesis wasn't too shabby
itself.

Oh, to truly make your test valid, you may want to hook both systems up
to the same tv, or calibrate both with a DVD such as Video essentials or
Avia.

Kinda cool. Sonic Advance is probably one of the things that surprised
me mostin the past few years. The entire reason I got a Genesis was
because I finally gave up the dream of Sonic appearing on a Nintendo
system. The realities of the industry finally sunk in. It amazes me
that apparently the concept wasn't so far-fetched after all.

Well yes, it has a much richer color pallete than the Genesis did so
there's no reason for its games -not- to look better side by side.

This obviously didn't necessarily translate into better games though.
Hands down Mortal Kombat for the SNES looks and sounds better, but
doesn't play anywhere near as well as the rather ugly Genesis version
did.

What the hell? You actually make a concious effort to play Pit-Fighter?

I DO have them running on the exact same model 20 inch color TV side by
side. I currently have a total of 8 television sets down there, also 4
computers w/ monitors (2 PC's, a mac and an ST), and a vectrex.

I don't think it's so much "playing" as "randomly pushing buttons." To
PLAY a game constitutes that the game has sort of GAMEPLAY. Pit Fighter
has none to speak of.

Also - What the hell was Atari thinking when they attempted to port it to
the 7800...
