After Burner on the amiga, with that stupid border and the tiny gameplay area was just pathetic, but the arcade version was awesome and still is.

Have seen videos of Brutalities and they look quite fun, in a lame ass sort of way :lol:

Just not worth it though. Especially when fatalities was so much easier to pull off ;)

Interestingly enough, the activision amiga version was so crap that sega released a completely different, much improved version for the US market.

"hey Guys, you know that fabulous new N64 console we're developing with brilliant SG style capabilities? Let's use an expensive obsolete and tiny capacity format with it, thus ruining any chance it has before we even launch all in the name of preventing piracy. Pardoxically of course, the 16MB downloads will mean that piracy of N64 games to play on the PC will actually be considerably easier than the other formats in 4 years when thanks to our idiocy the N64 will already be dead and buried but a machine that only exists because we don't respect signed contracts will have sold 70 million and counting."

QTE's (quick time events). You know, where you die at least once before you realise that your game has suddenly morphed into Simon Says for a minute.

Worst offender: Spiderman 3. Bloody tragic, as the swinging parts are brilliant.

No it isn't. it's already done in 'Tokio Bus Guide' for the Dreamcast!

Virtual Boy.

Somehow I never did see the appeal of strapping a supposedly "portable" unit (which required a desktop in order for you to use without suffering neck injury) which contained two small, retina-piercing screens an inch away from your eyes. The fact that the big N produced it defies belief.

Having said that, I still want one. Just so I can invest in boxes of Ibuprofen and play it in 30 second bursts. :wink:
