Interesting. To me it's the complete opposite when it comes to both games regarding gameplay. I can barely do anything in the Mega Drive version. My biggest gripe with the SNES version is how the CPU seems to block pretty much everything, which makes the difficulty quite cheap at times. Other than that it's a pretty good Street Fighter clone and fighting game in general.

It's not? I only see people claiming that for either Mirage or IDW

True. Everyone I speak to says Archie is overrated. So I also thought thinking Archie was the best comic was an unpopular opinion.

I don't think Archie is the best by the way but I do like it a lot.

I've never really liked the multi Colored Headbands. It doesn't really make sense in story

I don't like Jim Lawson's Art. I'm not a fan of Super Stylized Art

Having the Turtles never/rarely use their weapons or kill their enemies not only limits what you can do with them as characters and in combat, but it goes against their name

There are literally zero characters in the franchise that couldn't be reinvented to be likable by the right team.

I concur. Who would have thought "Pigeon Pete" would get such attention in recent years?

Peter Laird did a good job with the franchise in the 00's.

As I've gotten older I'll have o agree. What comes next is way worse. But as a little kid that level was hell since I wasn't patient enough to be able to get past it.

I find level 3 a lot worse with that jump that lands you in the sewer water and takes you all the way back. The furthest I've gotten to was the airport level. I got crushed by the spikes as I climbed down.

Mecha Turtle would always give me the most trouble as a kid. Now I always seem to Game Over while looking for the damn Technodrome. Found it once, Game Over'd, never got there again.

2 unpopular opinions ine one what a deal

Idk how unpopular this is (PROBABLY POPULAR) but to me leo will always be leader (NOW HES MIKEY 2.0)

not hating on rise (DID I JUST STATE MY OPINION IT WAS LIKE ONE OF THE FIRST REPLIES TO THIS THREAD) but really Leo is better as leader instead of the jokester

I also feel like rise is just an origin story to the TMNT happening before everything else TMNT (EXCEPT FOR COMING OUT OF OUT SHELLS THAT ONE AND THAT ****** CHRISTMAS TMNT THING THEY MADE NEXT MUTATION AFTER EVERYTHING TMNT EXCEPT FOR WHAT I JUST MENTIONED)

The idea of accepting any new version of TMNT that comes around for what it is always seems to be an unpopular one. I have people telling me I have no taste if I like some of the newer stuff, or that the newer stuff is bringing down the brand, or that fans like me are the reason everything is "kiddy" or "mindless." I don't know. It just seems like we'd all be better off if we just took every new iteration for what it was.

Also, I think Out of the Shadows is the best TMNT movie.

Wait is this fandom toxicity or not?

Also did you have a fight with any of those users because why not

I agree, nothing wrong with enjoying other versions even if they are more wacky. I like Rise.

NM aside I also liked Venus and would like to see her updated.

PD Movies aren’t great but not horrible. No I did not watch them in theaters.

Shredder’s transformers-like suit in TMNT 2014 was awesome. People would have totally accepted it if it was in a cartoon or better movie.

Mirage is everything. Archie is pretty cool for what it was when it was. I dig some of the early most IDW stuff and the care put into everything since. The first movie is aight.

The rest? Harrible.

I like Slash better than Zach as a 5th turtle.

I don't like to collect the action figures.

I like Jim Lawson's art best mainly in volume 1 of Mirage.

Not a fan of Dan Duncan's art.

Not a big fan of "newer" Kevin Eastman art, with thicker lines, marker, seems more rushed than his classic tmnt stuff. That said he does still produce a cool piece now and then.

I'm not interested in 2012 and Rise.

The 2007 movie is the most unwatchable one for me, even more than the Bay films.

I like the Mark Martin issues too.

This for me, too. It's just not pleasant to look at.
