So I was a big Sega nut in my youth, still am as many of you probably know lol. but I also had a fondness for the Atari Consoles. I'm pretty sure we had one of the originals with the really bland and ugly joysticks and the shocking pixelly graphics, then I got the Atari Lynx and the Jaguar... Anyone else own either of these from the ill fated hardware developer? Heres my games for both:
what do you guys reckon?
The Jaguar is certainly an underrated 2d console, had they not marketed it as a 64bit earth shatteringly powerful super console they might have done ok, it was, at best, a pretty good 32bit 2d and slight 3d console, it could hold its own against the saturn in terms of 2d sometimes but the 3d it produced was attrocious by comparison lol.
The top games have to be:
Alien Vs Predator (EXCELLENT game, paid around £40, pretty rare)
Doom (looks and plays great on the JAG)
Rayman (looks even better than the Saturn version)
Cannon Fodder (looks awesome on Jag)
Super Burnout (think Super Hangon only much better)
Syndicate (sucks you in for AGES)
Tempest 2000 (best version by far)
anybody else got a Jag or owned one before?
You can see the jag in this photo, it was a pretty ugly beast but I loved it:
The Atari Lynx was also the most powerful handheld at the time, the thing had 16bit rather than 8, Stun Runner, Xybots, Qix and Batman Begins were highlights for me, I never got very many games for it sadly.
I'd be interested to hear peoples Atari thoughts
