There is nothing wrong with the 3DO.


Not the console itself, but its game library.

The 3DO has a lot of great games. It has a lot of bad ones too. It certainly doesn't get the credit it deserves though. There is certainly more than $20 worth of enjoyment to be had.

Many of the ports are superior to those found on other systems.

Yeah, there's certainly enough games to justify $20 to me. Just the obscure fighting games and PC ports are enough.

Only reason I held back before was due to the high cost of the system.

I can vouch for that game. I had it on PC back in about 1995 or '96 and it was pretty fun.

This is a no brainer.

The two marvel v. capcom games are basically worth that much.

Nice find! :D

Sometimes, I think people post these "should I get it?" threads to tease us. Let me put it this way; if you don't get it, I will!
