Strange. There was a friend of mine had a FZ-10 with Street Fighter. He was a huge SF nut back then and he loved the 3DO version, never said anything about the controller being unsuitable. But then again, each to their own I guess, and they brought out arcade sticks for fighting games on 3DO anyway...

Keystone Kapers for the Atari 2600. One of the cornerstones that built Activision, it's infinitely replayable, and was a standout staple for Atari's line that separated them from Intellivision and Magnavox. EGM's Game of the Year in 1983. I'll say it's uncommon, because it took a backseat within Ac...

Strange behavior by my FZ-1

The setup: I have a game room in the basement of my home -- the "man cave." Due to a lack of composite-ins on my TV/surround setup, and for space considerations, my consoles pull double duty. The 3DO is my CD player, the PlayStation 2 is my DVD player, etc. It's very ghetto and college dorm life. La...

What is often overlooked in the 3DOs demise in the US was how it was presented at retail. There was a major shift in the 90s, thanks to Nintendo going mainstream in the 80s, and 3DO failed to take advantage. If anyone remembers the good ole days of the 70s and early 80s (again, from my US point of r...

Primal Rage was a bundle with many GoldStar 3DOs, so I would gather there are a fair number of people who are fiercely loyal to the game because it was their "baby" when they bought their 3DOs.
