Surely there are way more once we get into Japanese exclusives. I don't think Kurokishi no Kamen was released anywhere else, for instance.

This is an interesting idea, dish.... And I actually own all this hardware! Don't seem to have too many of these exclusive games though. 3DO is the best option in my opinion, because of Guardian War.

I own none of the systems, so I will let July pass.

I chose 32X and 7800 because I believe those to have the best quality of games. In fact, I was interested in a few 32X games, but only a few.

Very interesting topic and one completely different from what we have done this year. I commend you on something unique.

I don't own any of these systems myself, but because it is easy and convenient to do so; I'll gladly emulate whichever one wins.

Apparently the best 3DO emulator out there right now is a Russian one called Phoenix. It also seems to support most Jaguar games. I'll probably give it a shot here pretty soon, regardless of what wins this month.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but I used FreeDO V1.9 to beat some 3DO games at one point. But hey whatever works! None of these systems are difficult to emulate. I remember two years ago reading about a dude that used Google Cardboard to play Virtual Boy games on his phone, in 3D of course. The article: https://www.androidcentral.com/unoffici ... -cardboard

I wonder if you could emulate the VB with a modern VR headset. Would probably be a close proximity to the original experience.

Not sure I trust Russian emulation software... Who developed FreeDO?

Yes you can do that. The VBJin-OVR fork lets you do it via Oculus Rift (may support other VR helmets as well). ( https://github.com/braindx/vbjin-ovr )

From http://www.freedo.org/HTML/faq.html :

"Q. How did the FreeDO project get started?

A. awright69 got the inspiration to form the FreeDO project in early 2002 after his wife, a former 3DO gamer, persuaded ( some would say nagged ) him into finding and buying a used Panasonic FZ-1 and some games for it on eBay. awright69 fondly remembered playing some of the cool titles then available for the system in-store, and after looking at the quality of the console he’d purchased secondhand, which was ahead of its time in many respects, he decided to form FreeDO to enshrine and memorialize the hard work of the visionary folks at NTG (and ultimately 3DO Corp) through emulation. Being the mentally feeble type he is, and not having the extensive electronics and C/Assembler programming skills required to undertake such a task, awright69 floundered around for a few months studying the work that had been done a few years prior by troosh in Russia and kashi in Japan. awright69 had also managed to contact 2 other authors of previous 3DO emulation projects, but was unable to get any useful information out of them, and they were unwilling or unable to assist for fear of legal problems. Then, one day in early April 2002, a mad genius named felixl contacted awright69 and offered to lead the coding. With felixl's fierce determination, and pulling together some other coders (troosh and jsammons) who shared the vision and skill, the FreeDO project has taken form in code. Within weeks, the first CELs began being displayed, code snippets began running on felixl's core app, and the coders have been building on it ever since."

Dope, I know where my vote is going then, as this is likely something I'll mess with regardless.

Yeah, I've used FreeDO as well. Not for long, but it seemed to work fine.

Honestly, I'm just glad that one of the options isn't the Philips CDi, although for some reason just thinking about that system makes me so hungry I could eat an Octorok. ;)
