I had an Amiga 500+, CD32 then when releases slowed up i bought a saturn and ps1 then a PC in mid 1996 and i have to say its my favourite machine, there were some great titles being released on PC in the mid 90`s and the WWW was really taking off and the best way to access that was via a PC, have fond memories of going online on compuserve and AOL talking to people online which was very new to me back then using instant messages and of course playing great dos/windows 95 games like Wing Commander 4, Gabriel Knight 2, Privateer 2, Spycraft and Under A Killing Moon, i think you missed out 3do kid they were all titles i would of loved to see on 3DO and i'm sure it could of handled them all pretty good.I never liked Doom. I remember the PC version. Maybe it's because, I loved the Commodore Amiga and the Atari ST and HATED, really HATED, the PC. It ran under Windows '95,
I didn't actually buy a 3DO until a few years back, at the time they were released they were too expensive and then the saturn/ps1 came out, always had a fond spot for them though as i bought some official 3DO magazines around 1995, loved that mag i am collecting all issues if i can off ebay, there is something about the 3DO which makes it my favourite console but the PC is my fave game machine of all time, there were really some great dos titles out there.
Recently i have really got into building retro PC`s to play games from different era's especially SVGA dos games which some need a P3 500 to get smooth, also i have fond memories of getting a 3dfx orchid righteous voodoo 1 and adding it to my pentium 150 system with matrox millennium graphics card and being wowed by crisp bi linear filtered graphics with smooth frame rates
I love Need for Speed SE on my PC
