Tales from the Console Graveyard: The Sega CD

Take a trip to the Console Graveyard to explore the infamous Sega CD, one of the first CD based consoles with full motion video and CD quality audio. Learn how the Sega CD offered one of the best Sonic games... and some of the worst games period, including 'Night Trap,' leading to the ESRB system we use today.

    It was all about sewer shark. And again with the fail units of measurement. Its kilobytes of memory, not kilobits.

    Ahhh.. Sega CD! I totally got my name in an EGM magazine for sending in a code for Brutal: Paws of Fury. They were supposed to send me a t-shirt but I never got it. Where's Sewer Shark in the list of great games? that thing was fantastic!

    My best friend was ably to burn images of Sega CD game on actual CDRs and play them on the real thing, that how I fell in love with Reika, The Time Gal. A cheesy Dragon's Lair esq type game with a more 80s anime look, sadly never ported as much a Don Blut's masterpiece so never got to see a version with better resolution or DVD quality. Kevin, if you're reading this, Bing her LOL!

    Lunar: Silver Star, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, and Dark Wizard.... Many all-nighters as a teen with these games... Thank goodness for emulators to relive these but would gladly buy them again if they became available on PSN or Xbox... oh and Dragonforce on Saturn... and yes I would like fries with that.

    I had a Sega CD system when I was a kid. It was the second cheaper version. I think I remember it being better than it actually was.

    My favorite game was called "Thunder strike AH-13" (i think that's what it was called). It was a helicopter combat sim and I thought it was great. Good times.

    Technologically, the 3DO was far more promising in its time, and it even had some stellar games like Street Fighter II, Road Rash (maybe not "stellar"), The Horde, etc.. Being a Nintendo guy at the time, I always laughed at the SEGA CD and then 32X (LOL).
