Which one, the original wheel-feet animation, or the figure-eight running animation from Sonic CD?

I'm partial to the wheel feet myself, but the figure-8 wasn't exactly bad.

Super Peel Out animation > any other running animation in the Sonic games.

Truth!

Sonic CD had both. When running in normal speed, Sonic does the wheel-feet animation. Then, where Sonic accelerates faster than his regular speed, he does the figure-eight animation.

One clever thing Sonic CD had was that when Sonic ran, the screen pulled him back further so you had more reaction time.

Another clever thing is that they changed the soundtrack for the U.S. version so all the Otaku fanboys would have to buy two copies and possibly Japanese hardware.

Were there even Otaku fanboys back in 1993?

On topic, I still think the cleverest addition to Sonic CD was the time travelling, where it was possible to play 4 different variation of the same level. If the levels were up to Sonic 2/3 standards, it would truly be as God-like as some fans claim it to be.

Even the Sonic2 beta running animation? I really think they should have kept that one.

I really enjoyed getting the final "good" version of each stage. At least in the first half of the game. After that it got to be a hassle, and I couldn't be bothered with it.

And there were always Otaku fanboys.
Why are we capitalizing Otaku?

Peel Out > Sonic 2 Beta, though the Beta one is pretty good.

It was slightly different from the final Sonic 2 animation. I guess you could see his legs kind of like blue "spokes" twirling inside the red "wheel" made by his shoes. Uhh. I'll let someone else post a sprite image, because I'm too lazy to go look for one.

So cool, so hypnotising...

But yeah, I still think the Super Peel out animation is the best.

Then Sonic's running animation is settled. The Sonic 2 Beta animation for regular acceleration, and Sonic CD's animation for high-speed acceleration.

Is nothing sexier than a teal echidna? Teal is the color of virility, by gawd.
