I wondered at first..."Is this thread a joke"? But some are really serious. The CV has *some* games with great graphics, but comparable to the NES? Why stop at the NES? Lets compare the CV graphics to the N64...the PS2...maybe even the 360!!!
Really?. Indeed, let's compare the Colecovision to the PS2, or, let's wait for the next-gen, and compare the 1982 CV to whatever's coming out in 2014. HA HA HA! Ridiculous, but who'd have expected more?
After that, you expect to be taken "seriously?" That is seriously funny! HA HA HA!!!!!! Please, how about an encore?
you could make a case that some of the Coleco games' graphics are comparable to the 5200/Atari 8bit line,
They are. Considerably. That's why the Colecovision is well-respected, to this day. Duh!
but even then it's a draw in many cases,
Yeah, it is, and it's not necessarily a weak point, for either system. Thanks for describing the OBVIOUS,
and in others the CV is outdone by the 8-bit graphics.
Let's see some examples. This clown claims to have me on "ignore" (because he can't win a factual argument) but I reply for the sake of the thread in general, not to the no-evidence clown, who should be rightfully ignored. Furthermore, Donkey Kong was never released for the 5200. This guy is always against the 400/800 (simply because he didn't have one) and strongly FOR the 5200 (simply because that's what he had) - but now attempts to amalgamate the two - for the sake of a Donkey Kong comparison???? HA HA HA!!! Please, "jetset," continue!!!! Very entertaining! When you're done, try to explain the Wells Fargo (he's a bank teller who doesn't know policy of the firm he works for, but argues nonetheless) policies! HA HA HA!
Look at the screenshots of Donkey Kong. The CV isn't even close.
Actually, the CV is "close" in every measurable observation. It was extremely arcade-like for the time, and one of the best. Of course, those who are biased and opinionated - or simply have their heads where the "sun don't shine" - are not likely to admit that.
Sorry, this is just a silly comparison. Yikes.
I'll bet you're sorry. You should be. I feel sorry for you!! Now, please, for the sake of the thread, tell us how you've been an Atariage member for over 10 years, as if that's relevant......heh heh heh.
