    I remember when the first 3D0 came out, it was $800. I didn't buy one until it was down to $400. You know you've played too many video games when you remember owning a large number of those.

    Best game on the 3D0 : Need For Speed

    I never played the top 4 or 5 most expensive... I guess I missed out.

    They didn't even include the SegaCD and the Sega 32x. Those were awesome back in their day!

    I miss the Dreamcast. It should have been bigger than it was.

    Man, I remember saving up FOREVER for the Turbo Grafx 16. I was such an idiot.

    Loved that Need for Speed on 3DO. The Supra and he NSX were awesome in that game.

    Played tons of Fifa as well.

    I have owned 13 of those systems.

    I don't see the Sega-CD, though it was essentially an add-on for the Genesis, but damn that thing was expensive at the time and a waste of money IMO.

    But I just had to have that Night Trap game.

    I'm at 17, 19 if you include the Sega CD & the 32x.

    None of that mentions portable gaming.

    I thought I was one of a few that owned 3DO. I can still remember the sayings from this one the most:



    I don't remember "Return Fire" I did have the "Need for Speed" game.

    I still have my NES and Atari 2600 in the garage, next time I redo the living room, I'm thinking about putting them in the rack with the PS3 & the 360. I wish I would have kept all of the systems instead of trading them to move to the next one.

    When the Playstation2 came out, I was able to trade in enough stuff to have $700 in store credit at Gamestop (or whatever it was called at the time). I bought the system, extra controllers, every game that came out at launch, bought a magazine subscription and I had to pay $6 out of pocket to leave the store at midnight. That's the one time I've gone somewhere early and camped out. My friend and I got there at 4PM and were number 2 and 3 in line at the mall in Norman.

    I gave my PS2 to a kid that didn't have one.

    Did you play a lot of Smuggler's Run?

    Of course, loved it! I was terrible at it, but I loved it.

    I've owned 4 of those systems, and developed games for 11 of them.

    Basically until MGS2 came out, every person that I knew who bought a PS2 at launch had Smuggler's Run. I always thought that was funny.
