    Default The "Real" Worst Console Ever

    You'll never guess. It's not the 32X, Sega CD, or even Virtual Boy. Game.com is pretty close. If you own one of these, you probably already know the answer.

    Wasn't VHS developed by JVC and not RCA as the article implies, what other facts does it have wrong?

    JVC just means "Japanese Victor Company", Victor being the same as RCA-Victor, didn'tchaknow.

    The article isn't factually incorrect on that one.

    VHS was developed by JVC, but the article implies that RCA pretty much won the format war in the US, which is true. RCA, using tactics that JVC didn't necessarily approve of, such as marketing the the six hour tape, was responsible for VHS' market dominance in North America.

    There's even a Wikipedia article on it.

    He's one of the only reasons this abomination is still remembered. Home Pong systems were okay, but releasing one in 1977, after Channel F made the first true innovation with actual controllers (not pay phone keypads like Studio II) and proper usage of cartridges, and making it look like a relic mere months later by the 2600, with its graphics and intetactivity unmatched for its time. It's an awful thing that was late to the Dedicated System party, enough said.

    All consoles mentioned so far = wrong.

    The worst game console ever is the Action Max. Runner Up: R-Zone.

    ENOUGH. THe Sega CD was cool. Sick and tired of people who bash it because of the awful FMV stuff.
    It had many fantastic games, with great music.

    VB and 32x did suck though.

    32X had some quality games, though. At least half the library was worth checking out at the very least.

    Studio II is bad, but the VIS will always be bottom of the barrel, unless you REALLY want to run some Manhole.

    Except for Wario Land, Mario Clash, and Knuckles Chaotix.

    Default 3do M2

    My vote would be the 3DO M2 for the worst. Pricewise and what software you can buy for it, if any.

    I want one with the R Zone sweat shirt. I will do a mod on that controller to use the Genesis Activator instead. Now that would be badass...

    Virtual Boy, 32x and Sega CD worst systems of all time? You must be joking, they are far from it as all three systems have AAA titles.

    Game.com and R-Zone are definitely the worst of the worst, there's nothing redeeming about those systems. Jaguar is definitely worse than VB 32x and Sega CD as well, although that had Rayman and Tempest 2000.

    Yeah. Yeah. True, Sega 32X had a handful of good titles. But that's it.
    I have tried a few VB games and while a few were indeed cool, ANY SYSTEM that makes me bloody eyes water after 15 minutes sucks balls.
    Nintendo deserved the ridicule and humiliation for that one.

    And I think the Jag was horrid, it had about the same amount of games as the Sega 32X, with a similar percentage being pretty darn good titles.

    Glad someone agrees with me, in a round-about way, that the Sega CD was pretty sweet.

    I have to disagree about the Virtual Boy Fantastic_Duck. I don't know if I'm the only one in this situation, but I have never experienced eye strain from my VB and I have played Wario Land for upwards of an hour and a half at a time with no problems. I also think that while VB was seriously flawed in a lot of ways, it was a unique system with a couple of really cool games (Wario Land, Mario Clash, Teleroboxer, Jack Bros) and it just gets a bad rap because it's cool to hate it. That being said, Sega CD is indeed an awesome add-on if you find the right games.

    Sega CD was indeed an excellent add-on, not only that, it featured great games, and was revolutionary as it popularised CD console gaming...no, PC Engine did this not....
