Stop being an autist.
Grabbing an already existing story and turning it into another kind of story is also an art.
Disnney's versions don't negate the originals.
That's like saying because DMC exists the original series doesn't exist anymore or isn't canon/valid.

But just because they inserted musical numbers to cell CDs and toned down certain subjects doesn't mean they aren't great works of art. I mean I don't expect any adult to watch these movies for the plot.

Taking old stories and re-telling them differently has been a staple of human culture since forever, it's the entire basis of oral tradition. Only a handful of Shakespeare's plays weren't based on any known pre-existing material.

There's no way in hell the Genesis version was better. I played that shit when I was a kid. Aladdin had a sword in which all you did was barrel through enemies mashing slash like a retard, and he had no acrobatics. Most of the levels were really lame because of those limits. The boss fights, especially the final fight with Jafar was fucking awful since you just throw fucking apples to kill him. The Cave of Wonders Carpet level was garbage and the following Genie level was HORRIBLE. Genesis gameplay was braindead SHIT.

Meanwhile the SNES version's levels were much better crafted, Aladdin was a lot more mobile with swinging and that handstand vault. Instead of direct combat, you had to be tricky with throwing apples which only stunned enemies, avoiding and jumping on enemies. Infinitely better carpet ride levels. It was far fucking better. The graphics were vastly superior, and the music was better (but both were shit).

You can like the snes aladdin if you want, but saying that it had better graphics is just a plain fanboy lie. The genesis version had graphics produced with the actual Disney animators, and looks far better by using its "digicel" tech.

SNES had worse art, worse animation and just overall completely botched the artstyle of Aladdin. Look at this awkward looking shit. Looks like a bootleg, not an official game. Having more color capability (read: not used) doesn't not make up for this shit.

I really like the effort put into the aesthetic of the Genesis game. The animations are impressive, although the soundchip does it no justice the soundtrack is directly from the movie, the games a closer adaption, etc. It really seems like they wanted to make a good Aladdin game instead of just another 2D platformer with a license.

But Christ I can't stand Virgins level design. Capcoms game is a simple but effective platformer where Aladdin has really flexible jumping mechanics, parkouring your way through levels is very satisfying and later levels like Genie World get pretty creative. Virgin uses the mazelike approach other western games had, which I've never liked, and despite its great presentation its mechanically less interesting. The swords not useful, collision is weird sometimes, there's no sense of speed.

The only reason the Genesis version is so widely remembered while the SNES isn't is probably because its a lot more unique and ambitious, while Capcom had dozens of identical platformers on the SNES that were better, but that doesn't make it the better game. Just the more memorable one.
>>
Which one did you play as a kid?

Cause its the other one
>>
>>387036809
na, Mega Drive had that retarded "Shiny" style Earthworm Jim gameplay. It's really janky.
The animation was better, but it didn't make for a better game, just felt like a gimmick.

Capcom know what they're going. Always loved the SNES version. It just feels more "meaty"
>>
>>387036851
>Don't negate the originals
Yes, new things can and do negate the originals. Even taking into consideration Disney, a lot of the stories they've taken were very dark stories, with death, rape, etc. Very few people know about the original stories and new people who are just learning about them through Disney have no idea they exist. Eventually the Disney story of Pocahontas for example, will strictly known through only Disney's telling of it. Which, in essence "negates" the original.

SNES levels were designed around acrobatics

The Genesis had more licensed songs instead of that weird (but oddly comfy) Capcom sound chip they always use though

Still, gameplay > everything else.

I'm really not sure why people praise SNES hardware so much when it's full of weaknesses even compared to consoles 2 / 3 years older.

All it can boast is a fair range of colors (less than TG16 though), a 50/50 blending mode, and Mode 7. The sound chip being entirely PCM was versatile, but when you've only got 64 KB of space for sound samples, what's the point?
