Ask me, I wanna know! This is my first (and probably only) thread on this fourm, so I'm a bit nervous, so I'll start with something simple. What do you like in a Sonic ROM hack? There have been many a ROM hack over the years since 2000 regarding Sonic the Hedgehog. Something I wanted to know however, is what separates a hack like Sonic Erazor, from Latios in Sonic 3. There's a lot of reasons around, like understanding of what made the originals fun, a new, unique, or simple concept being used well, a good graphics and music pack, or your run of the mill meme hack. So what do you like about them ( I ask for the upteempth time)? Personally, from what I've seen, I feel that people take ROM hacks for granted sometimes. I'm okay with a vanilla ROM hack here and there, but playing Not Green Hill Zone a lot is starting to make my blood broil and boil. I really appreciate hacks with new stuff like bosses, badniks, coding, and character abilities. What I really strive for, however, is good level design, even my favorite ROM hacks out there have a problem with this at some points. I'm not really an expert sonic player, and there are times where things are taken too far. If there's one reason I'll play hacks that aren't changed drastically, it's for good level design, it will usually make up for it. As this is my first thread, I hope that it goes well, so I hope everyone has a great day, and can hope to look into other's answers for help on ROM hacking!
