It's time. It's time to settle this.

A while back, I got into a HEATED EXCHANGE with Kotaku columnist Lisa Foiles about her flagrant proclamation that the Super Nintendo version of Aladdin was superior to the Genesis version of Aladdin.


I did not remember this to be the case—from my recollection, the Genesis version was much better looking, and had better animation. Hadn't they used real Disney animators on the game or something? Wikipedia backs me up, so I'm not misremembering that. And you had a sword! No wicked cool sword in the wussy SNES version.

I am so curious to see who wins.
