Re:

I'm not so sure about the 3d rendering on the 3do. I admire your optimistic view on the 3do and if it could've done more in regards to 3d. When i go down the list of specs I see a system built to push pixels and not polys. The hardware polygon count figures don't appear in official documents, maybe...

I remember reading a similar article in the Official 3DO magazine, the gold edition i think that said PO`ed didnt look as good on Playstation compared to the 3DO version but had a better frame rate. Remember these titles were developed for 3DO to get the best out of it and converted to PS1 very earl...

While reversely i feel people underestimate the 3D capabilities of the 3DO. All games mentioned in this thread could of easily been done quite well on the 3DO, some not so well if released during its heyday but definately if the console survived longer and talented programmers started to push the 3D...

Forza is sterile
Yes like modern gaming to be honest.

Nothing beats the 93 to 98 period for gaming, the excitement over the first consoles able to do texture mapped polygons, PC 3D graphic cards etc.

Yes LD had that mystique about it like that the 3DO did, both way ahead of their time and underappreciated.

Well after doing some searching on the net i found this very interesting thread i think the guy called Michael Helgeson sums it up better than i could, the 3DO simply had a much better games catalogue than the Jaguar. Wow,Im finally able to post. Last time I checked I couldn't.. At any rate someone ...

Yup, they aren't the only one but everyone else besides us is kinda dead. It's too bad the 3DO fanbase isn't big enough for more than one site of forums. Yes its a complete travesty isn't it how unappreciated the 3DO is and was even during its life, makes me mad that jaguar forums are much busier w...

My fondest memories were not buying one and instead buying some decent consoles like the PS1, Saturn and then later the N64 and Dreamcast.

I didn't buy a 3DO until much later unfortunately but its now my all time favourite console, closely followed by the Saturn and Dreamcast.

Nope. Carmack was a Jag Fanboy and wrote the Jaguar version himself, and because, apparently, the consoles of the day (Saturn, PS1, 3DO, etc) weren't up to it, Thats strange as all three consoles are superior to the Jaguar both technically and software wise. I guess programmers like to push the wea...

3DOKid you seem to think the Jaguar is better than the Saturn and other consoles apart from the 3DO. Sorry i completely disagree, I think most consoles were better than the Jag like for example 3DO, PS1, Dreamcast, Saturn, N64, Gamecube, Xbox, SNES, Megadrive, NES are all surperior to the Jag with m...

As far am i am concerned the 3DO kills the Jaguar. Just like the N64 when everyone else was going to CD atari stuck with cartridges and when they did release a CD add on(add ons never take off) it was way too late. I hated the design of the atari joypad it looks dreadful just like the jaguar, the wo...

I would of loved to have seen Gabriel Knight 1 and 2, 3DO would of really done justice to them esp the second one, the 3DO's video quality would of been superior to the PC version just like Wing Commander 3 was. Also it would of done justice to Under A Killing Moon and The Pandora Directive, not sur...
