John Bower: When I was a kid, I used to dream about one day having enough money to buy myself a Sega CD for my Genesis. It was the pinnacle of gaming, upping the sound quality of games and pushing graphics to a whole new level. That's what I thought, anyway. In reality, it was a fairly expensive piece of technology that didn't really improve all that much at all. Worse yet, the bulk of its game library were shitty Full Motion Video games where the only thing worse than the gameplay running behind a bunch of horribly-compressed video clips was the acting. Suffice to say, the next generation couldn't arrive fast enough.
