  • @mediamogul the 3do was a technical masterpiece in its day, I for one played it before the playstation was released, it was like magic.
    I played the saturn before anyone I knew had a playstation. also a great piece of kit.



  • IBM-PC: UFO: Enemy Unknown (American title: X-COM: UFO Defense)

    much much below:

    MegaDrive: Mega Bombermann
    Super Nintendo: SFII (no special version)



  • @muehltime Pokémon Ultra Violet combines Fire Red and Green Leaf. It also removes the need for trading and anything else that was included in the original games to get Pokémon, so with Ultra Violet you can really catch them all.
    It was my first (and last) Pokémon game and I really liked it to not have to choose between Red or Green.



  • I think this sum's it up, hard to choose now a days.

    NES: Felix the Cat

    Indeed, it's a fun game. I only would like that it had a password system back in the days (today we have save states and/or can leave the game paused on our emulation devices).

    @spruce_m00se

    the 3do was a technical masterpiece in its day

    I'm probably a little tough on it due to the number of full motion video games it had. Like the SegaCD, the system was definitely at it's strongest when running more traditional game titles and despite it's limited library, it was indeed technically superior to anything else out at the time. I have to admit that I found 'Return Fire' to be particularly fun with a friend, so I've gone back and changed my answer ;).



  • @mediamogul I don't really know any 3do games... will check out Return Fire.



  • can you run the 3do on a pi3? I tried and it was pants



  • @spruce_m00se have not tried. haven't seen a good run of it yet.
