    ^I appreciate this post because I'm just reading through the thread, and you've basically convinced me that I need Sega Rally, with your vote of confidence that it's best on console.

    Also I just got 1st in a mirror track and there is no trophy, I think I see now what people were referring to earlier... because apparently in the US version, mirror mode just doesn't record times,...

    By the way, a while ago, I did beat all 5 tracks in 1st place, and unlocked mirror mode. It's kind of automatically disappointing. But the core gameplay of VRD is awesome and it's not really...

    Haha hey it was 1994 so there wasn't much information available, I just saw magazine photos of MJ hanging with SEGA, and it was announced MJ was helping create Sonic 3.

    So then Sonic 3 came out...

    Excellent for historical understanding. Previously, I only saw the photos in which MJ was hanging out with Sonic, and playing Sonic 2 IIRC.

    Where did you acquire these photos?

    Wow, OK thanks, I've been playing under the wrong impression of the F-1 being fastest. I've beaten 4 of the 5 stages with F-1.

    Ironically I used to play with Prototype because I used to believe...

    I'm glad to hear from some other people who appreciate VRD. I think it's probably easily overlooked by many people because the graphics might not really sell it, or indicate how advanced the...

    Thanks for responses guys, I'm otherwise just playing VRD on my own here, lol.

    And yeah I can tell that it's building up skill, over repeated practice, so it is actually satisfying, eventually. ...

    Also I got 1st in Acropolis, in addition to Big Forest and Highland. So 3 of the 5 stages.

    It's annoying / disappointing that it works out this way, that each track just takes countless...

    I've just barely managed to get 1st place in 2 tracks: Highland, my favorite, and then Big Forest, which is probably easiest. It's taken me a...

    Well myself, I'm taking a break right now, away from Ocarina. I played for maybe 3 weeks in January. But now having lost all progress, I don't feel ready for that time sink, again, right now.

    So I might be lacking the proper perspective on it.

    Yes, I'm going to return to Ocarina, in the future.

    Ironically though, it's emulation that made me love it recently (late November 2021). Because graphics are clear and entirely...

    SixtyForce was just the best-working N64 emulator that I found, afaik, for my current set-up, which is the current version of macOS: Monterey.

    Before upgrading to Monterey, I was...

    Why do you find it overrated?

    Similar reasons as what I mentioned? i.e. overly obscure, random situations, that seem designed as one time-sink, after another, after another?
