Ex: This isn't the first time in our brief gaming history that 3D realms have come into play. Remember the not too distant past when virtual reality was the next step we were going to take in gaming?

Turns out that Sega had been working on a VR set that would plug directly into their console, but fearing customer lawsuits over the health risks involved, dumped the project all together.
