Do you think that Sonic 3&K (and mania) doesn't encourage you enough to not get hit? the only reward for collecting rings is an extra life, which isn't all that useful considering how difficult it is to die in sonic games. And even if you'd manage to get a game over, it still isn't a big deal, 'cause you just start at the beginning of the zone (assuming you're playing with saving) which isn't all too punishing.
No crappy NES graphics.
No ugly low poly 3d.
Pure beautiful 16 bit style.
I'm tempted bros. I tried the NES way back when it was localized, but NES games have aged horribly.
