Not all consoles are created equal. Some of them fail even though they were good. Luckily, the ones with unspeakably awful features and ideas fail so hard that no-one attempts to rehash them.

The Jaguar was a decent console for its time. Yeah it was a stretch to call it 64-bit (one of its chips was 64-bit, but it's main CPU was the same 16-bit 68000 CPU that powered the Genesis. It failed because Atari no longer had the marketing muscle to make it a success- didn't get enough developers on-board, etc.

that, and a slew of crappy games (minus a few good ones)

I quite liked the controller with the weird number pad.

Worked great for selecting weapons in Doom and Aliens versus Predator... Two of the best games on the system.

I don't think we should ever be happy in the failure of others, however I'm somewhat glad the Gizmondo failed. If it was successful I don't even know if I'd still game. Why? Because the Gizmondo's idea was to play nonskipable commercials throughout every day you played. Imagine having commercial breaks in a game you paid $60 for, That's crazy!

The jaguar was worth the price just for tempest 2000.

I owned the Jaguar and enjoyed several games from it
