I still have my Sega CD and Coleco Vision but always wanted a 3D0 j ust for their great version of Star Control 2, if nothing else.

Thankfully, we have the Ur-Quan Masters project now...

Saturn. Given all the facts it's no mystery why it lost, but that's not to say there aren't some nice RPGs on it.

I still want to replay Magic Knight Rayearth, Panzer Saga, Shining Force 3, and Shining the Holy Ark again.

I never played Magic Knight Rayearth, but SF3, and StHA were 2 of my favorites. Panzer was good, but i was more a fan of the first 2 shooters and not the RPG angle.

Think Secert of Mana-like gameplay with Lunar Silver Star/Eternal Blue graphic and presentation style. Mix in a good dose of funny and you've got Magic Knight Delay..er..Rayearth.

Yup. Like most of ya, I'd go for Dreamcast. I just wanted that console so badly. Only ever played it once in a store though with Virtua Fighter 3 running. Back then, I never even heard about online gaming. I couldn't believe the Dreamcast could do that until years later. It was just the console that pioneered the way we think about gaming.

Also, how could you say the Turbographix was a flop? It was a huge success as the PC Engine back in Japan. The only flaw would probably be that slow 8 bit processer. The Mega Drive/Genesis, had a 16/32 bit processer.

Intellevision - too bad by the time it started hitting mainstream, Mattel decided to pull the videogame plug.

Althought the Coleco was much better graphics wise and Sega CD had some fun titles (but having too many power transformers on an extension cord was a PITA)

Oooh, good one. I had that one. I really liked it, too.

You can still buy one via amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Atari-Portable-Handheld-Video-System/dp/B000O52X56/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=121580579 9&sr=8-1

Intellivision was cool too. Part of it is that kids were losing the plastic controller guide...

I voted Dreamcast for the Dead or Alive games... Plus, on the football game, I was able to beat anyone who ever played me by over 100 pts. As a matter of fact, they only get the ball once the whole game. :-)

Colecovision.

At the time I had an Atari 2600 and comparing Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Burgertime made me a little jealous. I finally picked one up off E-Bay with 10 games for about $75 a few months ago.

I always had a thing for Mattel's 1980 Intellivision. For me it was a more refined system over the Atari 2600. The sleek numeric-bubble pads had a 16 direction control over the Atari's blocky 8 direction one button joystick - not that it really mattered much in actual game play. And then there was the always on-going, never fulfilled promise of a keyboard with extra memory(64k)/cartilage slot and printer to get an affordable computer. Despite the slip-up, it was my machine, By 1982 - 2,000,000 had been sold. Too bad I diden't save mine.

Now the PS3 fills that role of came console/computer that I always wanted for my TV er HDTV.

Back to First Systems

I actually liked the Sega Game Gear. I bought that for my son and when he wasn't playing it, I was. It had the coolest thing too, it was capable of playing TV with an add-on.

I had one of the original Atari Lynx handhelds - aka Classic:



Several games, one with an F-18(can't remember the name... Blue Lightning?), California Games(4-in-one) and a couple others that I can't really remember. Been a while.

Great little gamer!
Games were the size of a large book of matches
