All my Jag games

Post by 3DO Experience » Fri Jan 31, 2014 4:48 am

Had an opportunity to snap a photo of all my Atari Jaguar games at once. Only one you can't see is the MYST Demo CD.

PS. Forgot the homebrew CDs.

Nice, tidy collection there! Only a few in there that I don't own/care for (Bubsy, Flip Out & Dino Dudes). But overall, great stuff! :D

If I had to recommend you any further titles, I would suggest:

Tempest 2000(!!!)
Wolf3D
Power Drive Rally
Super Burnout
Ultra Vortek (if you like Kasumi Ninja & WOTWarrior, as it's better than both of those)
Val D'Isere
Missile Command 3D

And, more expensively
Protector
Zero 5

^ All of those are great games btw 8)

Wish I had Worms.

One of the technological gems for the Jaguar is Hover Strike CD. If you look at the textures you will see the Jaguar doing what appears to be filtering and Anti-aliasing on the textures as they are absolutely clean with no Jaggies. They are quite beautiful.

Though the game itself may not be that awesome from a technical standpoint its something else.
What came after the Jaguar was the PS1 which for all it's greatness, ushered in corporate development and with it the bleached, repetitive, bland titles which for the most part we're still playing today. - David Wightman

Ninja, yeah Tempest 2000 and Protector SE are on my want list, Super Burnout too. I'm really happy with my 3DO Wolfenstein so I probably will pass on it unless I find a cheap (in box) copy out in the wild.

I did forget to include the homebrew CDs I have but they aren't with my Jag stuff. I'll have to find them in the game (storage) room some time.

Super Burnout is the standout hidden gem IMO.

I just got Towers II. I had completely forgotten about Worms. I remember when it was released I considered buying it, but I was happy playing it on PC at the time. Didn't think about the collectible factor.

Nice. I have about 30 Jag games, but only a quarter or so of them are boxed.

Mine weren't all boxed but I only needed a few so I purchased boxes for them. My previous box to Iron Soldier was a fright so I replaced it. I might have to sell that sealed copy of WORMS though.

Glad you are having fun with it before (if) you sell it.

Never realized how generic that poor cartridge label looked though.

It's funny you know. Although I agree (re: generic) I can't help but think it somehow makes it look cooler in a way. A game cart, with a black label, with a HUGE standard red font, entitled: WORMS.

Looks more menacing than it should do... :lol:

I'm a sucker for good labels. Back in the day a lot of times all we could rely on was artwork. Even if it often didn't reflect the game accurately, I always loved attractive labels. It's actually one of the things I enjoy most when it comes to collecting for the 2600. There are some bad games, but they often have wonderful art!

I dislike collecting for the SEGA Master System for similar reasons.

I give them props for being cryptic - they'd force me to pick them up just so I could check the back and see what kind of games they actually are! Funny you picked that game Ninja - I never knew it was a Spy Hunter type game until I picked up a loose copy - I assumed it was a 2D brawler or some such. :P

Yeah, Action Fighter's a great little game 8)

Shame about that horrific box art though! :shock:

I like the way 3DO Exp has it set up. It looks like the console is saying "I am an almighty 64-bit Atari Jaguar with state-of-the-art CD add-on, and all you 32-bit consoles are puny WORMS!" :twisted:

Seriously though, that is a nice little collection of Jaguar games there. It's Missing Tempest 2000 and a couple other oldies but goodies, but a nice collectiong. Hell, you have Rayman in there. An excellent version of said game if there ever was one!
This is a stick up! Put all of your 3DO games in the bag and nobody gets hurt!
