Definitely both Tetsujin/Iron Angel of the Apocalypse games. They are slow (especially the first one) but have a great atmosphere.

Someone said, either on here or the AtariAge forums that the 3DO and Jaguar compliment each other perfectly. Both out around the same time, both attempted to create the next generation but ended up stuck between the 16-bit and 32-bit gens. There are similar games on each system too. Some great games...

I recently sold my NES and SNES as I rarely played them and while the NES in particular is a big part of gaming history, I find both overrated. Anyway, I don't think I could bring myself to sell any other console, especially the 3DO, Jaguar and Saturn.

Tesujin & Tetsujin Returns

Anyone else really like these games? I completed Tetsujin (aka Iron Angel of the Apocalypse) and I'm now playing through the sequel Tetsujin Returns. I really love the dark atmosphere of these games with the ambient soundtrack and gritty style of graphics. I've heard people bitch about the controls ...

Pretty different from what I remember. Though I haven't played Toy Commander in a while.

On topic, I think Army Men 3d and Army Men: Lock and Load are awesome. Great for multiplayer!

If you can, it's worth getting an S-video cable. I've tested both that and composite on various TVs and the quality ranges from quite noticeable to very noticeable. Results vary but you'll at least get a cleaner image.

I was still wowed by the 3do when I bought one last year. I think it's because the system was underpowered compared to the Saturn and PS1 but there are a lot of games that look better on 3do.

Just got Doom today off eBay and having played 9 levels and the secret level in one sitting I have to say it's not as bad as most people are saying. In fact, it's actually pretty good.

Yeah it's not like most consoles where you can run RGB through a HDMI converter/upscaler. I'm using S-Video at the moment, running it through a VGA converter and to my CRT monitor. That gives an awesome picture.
