Hmm, we talk a lot about what's out there now I thought a trip down memory lane would be interesting to see where some of us supported that didn't maybe pan out as you thought it would. This topic is not for systems that did well but rather, what did you own that didn't make it for various reasons and do you still have them today.

For example I owned the Sega Game Gear until I lost it one day (man that thing ate batteries though) and that didn't seem as bad as it just couldn't hang with the Gameboy like many other portables have tried and usually also failed.

Some other systems to give you an idea of this topic can include (which I used http://www.gamefaqs.com/ for some help) : Neo Geo Pocket, 3DO, Sega Saturn, any of the Sega Genesis add-ons like the CD or 32X, Jaguar, Atari Lynx, VirtualBoy and TurboGrafx 16. Take care!

^ I love your topics. Even though I'm not that old, I've always loved the old gaming systems and retro-games. :lol:

I still have my gamegear. It's a memorable system for it's firsts: first handheld to have a color, back-lit LCD; first handheld to introduce an 8-bit (but clunkety) D-pad, first handheld to weight a ton and use 6 AA batteries! Gwaah! And it was also notorious for having tons of pixel burn outs... I have one dead pixel on my screen, and it's colored red... :sweatingbullets:

Jaguar... only thing I remember there was Tempest... pretty cool... wish I could play that again.

I just locked a previous topic about Retro Games and changed this topic so that it includes both consoles and games.

Aww... oh well... guess it can't be helped. :D

Yey! People replied in the thread! I'm kinda sad... I accidentally plugged my SNES into a 220... and it's fried now... Sigh...

At least my MegaDrive (asian equivalent of Genesis) is still working. I mostly have sonic games. Do you guys remember that version of Sonic & Knuckles where you could attach Sonic 3 on to it? I found that so cool during it's time!

Anything without an asterisk I've played myself. I left out some of the obvious titles.

I quit playing computer games around 1996, and didn't start gaming at all again till about 2000 so my knowledge of that era is preety skim. Early 90s though... I lived and breathed PC gaming back then.

You got me there, unless you're referring to a mod for the new one. I know that ROTT has some easter eggs if you set your computer's internal date to christmas when you play it, but I've never heard of a Christmas wolf 3d, unless it's some obscure mod.

Remember that shitty shooting game that was for Sega and arcade with Aerosmith in it? Generation X i think, you shot CD's instead of bullets, it was really lame.
