I don't know if this is a unique version of the game or a port of the game from other systems. I wonder if anyone else can update.

Whilst I have 3 of these systems (VB, 3DO and 32X) I've currently voted for VB and 32X. I think the game selection for Virtual Boy is by far the best of the 5 options. 32X is a bit pricy and I'd prefer to stick to original carts, but there's a few decent options there.

Whilst I have a little bit of a soft spot for the 3DO, the actual library of exclusives is pretty dire. Guardian War is the only thing on the list that appeals at all, and I'm not exactly stoked to play it.

I don't think anything on the Atari lists looks any good.

Emulate, folks! Emulate! We're going to get some folks to jump on that train yet!

Of these systems, I own the 3DO, Virtual Boy, and 32X. My 3DO needs work, though, so if it somehow wins, I'll have to emulate. I would probably emulate Virtual Boy regardless; it's a pain to play that one in real life. The 32X I could hook up, but I don't have the necessary cabling to output RGB, so it would look like trash. So emulation there, too.

I'd be most interested in Virtual Boy and 32X, but I'm personally good with whatever you all wish to play. No matter what wins, I'll only beat two or three games for this upcoming TR. (Next month I'll be busy with my annual "Summer Themed" thing I do each July.)
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

Here’s a full list of true exclusives for the Atari 7800:

Atari 7800
Alien Brigade
Crack’ed
Hat Trick
Jinks
Mat Mania Challenge
Mean 18 Ultimate Golf
Midnight Mutants
Motor Psycho
Ninja Golf
Planet Smashers
Tank Command
Touchdown Football
Water Ski


(You can also make an argument for Super Huey UH-IX, but I don’t think it really counts)

Something for everyone!

Also...if Virtual Boy wins, everyone should play Wario Land. That game is great, and it is a crime against humanity that Nintendo never ported it to the 3DS.

I am still ticked that Lucienne's Quest got a Saturn port in Japan.

I, too, voted for Virtual Boy and 32X. Those have enough games that I'd be interested in playing.

I’m not big on emulating on my PC so my options are 32x, virtual boy and 7800. I’ve actually never played a 7800 game before (I just bought it cheap as a 2600) so that would be interesting.I love some Virtual Boy games so I’d also be down with that. Most of the 32x exclusives are pretty awful imo; Knuckles Chaotix is a tech demo stretched into a bad game.

I'm not actually sure how to go about emulating some things like the Virtual Boy, 3DO, or Jaguar. I do own a 3DO but none of the exclusives, unfortunately.

That said, I voted for 3DO and Jaguar. Why? Simple. Dungeons & Dragons: Slayer on 3DO and Alien vs Predator on Jaguar.
