I'd say they played this one for the extra stuff, and the modding, some say it has performance issues but that's only on Brigth island, at least in my case, other than that it's pretty much the same experience, don't play Brigth island.

Bright Island is alright but it has that problem where the combat just drags on and on.

I really have no use for Revolutions. Before I opened it up again recently the game said Last Played 2019

I guess you could launch it for the convenience of having FE and SE available in the same place, but if you wanna go that route I'd more recommend getting the Xbox version mod for SE, which is the superior edition of the FE and SE imo

Is the mod that adds to the cinematics of the Xbox? Wasn't that incomplete mod? Revolution also has an xbox mod (which I recommend in general) But it's purely visual, but it's still very good.
Personally, I do not find the xbox versions so "superior" I like their style and weapons, but they have a crapy life system that throws all difficulties overboard.
I like the revolution for the convenience of having mods on hand easier (the xbox mod) and I like the customization options it has. And also it does not have the muzzle flash screwed up like in the originals.
On top of that I much prefer the style of the original games over the xbox version

It's incomplete and the cutscenes were never finished, but it was enough to satisfy my nostalgia for the Xbox version. As far as the lives system, you can ignore it if you want to. There's still normal saving. Lives system isn't that useful since you don't always respawn where you died. And save scumming is more abusable

I like the styles of PC and Xbox for different reasons but imo the aesthetic of Serious Sam hit its sweet spot around SS1 Xbox / Next Encounter

Lol "save scumming" that's aggressive dude, jeez.

Not sure what you mean, it's a pretty neutral term for 'saving all the time'

My last FE playthrough had over 1000 saves because I'm really meticulous about not wasting health or ammo

Lives can make the game easier, but they dont reset to the state of the game prior to death, they just drop you back in the action, making hard saves more valuable

It is kind of bizarre that SS1 has lives though since the Xbox had a hard drive and you could basically make infinite saves

Well since it has "scum" in the word one assumes that it is to insult, and it is only if you abuse the save state, I suppose it applies to that, the xbox viads system literally leaves you in the place where you died and plus you It gave a period of invincibility, by the end of the game you already have about 80 lives.

Words and phrases can mean almost anything, as a descriptivist linguist would tell you

When I say it, it's not an insult. If it were I'd be insulting myself and I don't see anything wrong with save scumming. Serious difficulty would likely be too tedious for me without it

The lives system leaves you in the place you died, but minus any ammo you already used up and other things. A hard save lets you go back to before you screwed up. That makes saving more useful than a lives system to me

Though the invincibility of the lives system can be exploited to do things like take out large amounts of marsh hoppers

Can you pass a link to download the Xbox Mod?

When I was searching to see if anyone had even made a mod of the Xbox content, I found a YouTube video with this link

https://www.serioussite.ru/load/serious_sam_xbox_pc/16-1-0-2709

This is where I found it

It's in Russian but shouldn't be hard to navigate

There's a patch that's supposed to fix the cutscene videos, but I never bothered installing it to see if it works

It seems to be permanently unfinished, and since it's been nearly 20 years since I played the Xbox version I can't say if it's 100% accurate to the console version or not

Oh, that's what I was referring to earlier, but thanks anyway.
