"Bad Playstation game"?
We played Bubsy back in the early 90s and compared to a lot of other games it was pretty OK. I have fond memories of that game. Wasn't deep, but we
enjoyed it and played it a lot, because it was the 90s and not the 2019 [graphic wise].
I watched a few seconds of that video and was bored.
Yeah, Bubsy he even wobbled his bottom like a proper cat before attacking!
I never played the PS game myself... but online vids look pretty rough.
Plus 1996 saw Mario 64, blowing everyone’s mind with a real 3D world, with fluid controls.
Also NiGHTS into Dreams, same year. So Bubsy didn’t really have a chance in 1996.
Regarding the OP: it’s a half hour of gameplay that will make you think about life... but I guess maybe it’s a tough sell.
I think of Let’s Play vids as something to play in the background while you’re doing something else, like cleaning your apartment or something.
(But I know that some folks dislike Let’s Play’s.)
Re: the online game:
Some aspects that might not be obvious at first:
Bubsy’s sprite is ugly on purpose, to reference the PS game. It’s a joke.
Also if u go to Bubsy3D.com: the website itself is visually a joke; it’s set up like a 90’s site, with low color, and badly animated GIF’s. On
Plus the game itself has been deliberately preserved... because of its art value re: James Turrell, and promotion of museums, etc.
Plus the game controls pretty nicely, as Bubsy can jump-glide everywhere. So it feels nice to play.
If people don’t want to watch then I wish they’d try the game at Bubsy3D.com.
Then again, maybe this is all uninteresting to most gamers, idk.
I do find it fun and thoughtful... but I also don’t get into most modern games...
I keep seeing ads for Game of Thrones that I can’t get into, at all, for example lol.
