Haha, are you trying to upset me? I thought that game was considered a classic by everyone! (not Ecoquest)

Dolphin jumping stuff in Ecco was at least pleasant, like one of those marine creature paintings sold at aquariums. Ecoquest was just a really preachy Sierra C-lister.

A soft volley of clicks, the equivalent of a cough to get attention was heard from behind me. Turning, I gave a groan of deepest loathing, that old cow of a mother was behind me. “What is it?” I snarled.
“I just want to talk to you Sonar,” she said softly, her deep brown eyes, showing worry and concern.
I glowered back. “‘Bout wot?”
“About...” she started. She stared into my angry eyes and saw it. Rage. She knew I was being rude, she could see I didn’t care. I saw her body begin to quiver with uncontrollable fury, then it exploded, “What is your problem Sonar? I never had this trouble with your brothers and sisters. Why do I get it from you? I bet Ecco...”
And that did it. The mention of the name forced it out of me, the secret I’d kept for so long, ultimately revealed. “Wanna know my problem? Ecco! I hate Ecco; just as much as I hate YOU!!!!”
The brown eyes of my mother stared in shock, hurt flooding into the chocolate colored globes. She couldn’t believe I’d just said that to her; she opened and closed her mouth a few times, trying to think of something to say. But, instead of words, my mother burst into tears and fled, like a calf witnessing a shark feeding frenzy for the first time.

"Search for Cetus" sounds vaguely pornographic

I hated this game, but hey. It's not like they had Sega when i was four years old either.

Trying to move Ecco around was about as effective as trying to control a live dolphin with a Genesis controller, except the live dolphin was less likely to decide to fatally bang into something.

It was a pretty enough game, what I saw of it, at least. Some of the most esthetically pleasing dolphin death scenes I've seen.

Yeah, what's with all you Ecco-haters? As you get through the game it just gets more and more "WTF".

two weeks pass...
It was fun to swim around and jump out of the water in Ecco, but I don't think I got very far or really figured out what the hell to do.

That sounds like a pretty accurate description of what it's like to be a dolphin.

They don't call it edutainment for nothing.

Yea, Ecco was boring.

when it comes to dolphins, this is the only "game" that matters:
