I had no idea that first-person recreations of classic titles existed, but apparently they are quite popular. There have been multiple remake videos that use the first-person perspective, including videos of Bomberman and Super Mario Bros. The latest entry in this series of videos is Sonic the Hedgehog. A few days ago, Machinima posted the first-person version of the Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic and I think this recreation seems like a better game than most 3D Sonic titles (I’m looking at you Shadow the Hedgehog.)
I enjoyed that there’s the big screen shows the first-person view and that the little screen shows the sidescrolling action from the original. It’s worth pointing out that the video isn’t very fast, but I’m pretty sure that this was made to show the level of detail that this recreation has.
