Just noticed (far as I can tell) that Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the few franchise I can think of (thats probably at lest a decade old) that hasn't really ever been 'remixed' (given graphical update*). What do I mean?

Capcom

Resident Evil (1 & 4) - 'remake' for the GameCube and 4 on the HD consoles I'd guess.

Konami

Castlevania (Rondo of Blood for the PSP

Nintendo:

Mario Bros (Updated graphics in All-Stars)
Super Mario Bros (1-3) [(Updated graphics in All-Stars)]
Zelda (Ocarina of Time for the 3DS)

Square (Soft|Enix)

Final Fantasy (1-6) - Ported and updated numerous times (GBA, DS, PSP, etc)

Sony

God Of War (1 & 2) - Given "HD" rerelease on PS3 (from PS2)


*Yes, generations HAS updated graphics of Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Casino Nights, Mushroom Hill (though really not) etc, but 1-3 (& Knuckles) haven't ever been given graphical release on a newer system from the Genesis, far as I know. Interesting thought I had.

Nik, I don't mean the Genesis collection(s) on the PS(2|3) Xbox (360) & Wii. To me (I am colorblind (red-green) . . . .) the collections still look like the Genesis games. Generations has updated looking Green Hill Zone, Chemical Plant, Casino Nights but those are all in the same game . . . . . . The NES & SNES) Final Fantasies look really different on the GBA & DS & PSP compared to the (S)NES. As does Resident Evil Remake for Gamecube compared to the PS1 release of 1.

If you compared some of the remade games (Remake, Final Fantasy 1-4, Mario All-Stars . . .) to the oringal set of games there should probably be a noticeable change in the graphics, espically in FF 1 (NES) - black background for battle with a tiny window for the 'fight' - compared to like the GBA where it's now full screen and you can tell your in a grassy plane for in the moutains or swamp, I'd say that's a large graphics leap . . . .

Sonic 1-3 & Knuckles on the other hand, in all the rereleases, ports all (to me anyways) look the same, except compare like Genesis Green Hill Zone, Chemical Plant & Casino to Generations and there's differenses there . . . . .

Sonic Adventure DX had updated character models. They actually had individual fingers rather than the solid blocks that was their hands on the Dreamcast.

Graphics have been improved considerably but actually the feel and style haven't

I REALLY need to play a sonic game, its been many years since I did

@Teebor yes I know of generations, but the ORIGINAL genesis games and all those stages haven't ever (to my knowlege) given a 'update' and sold like Mario All stars (1-3 & lost-levels) . . . . .
