I still remember the days when I was just a young General. Pausing my Super Nintendo to take a quick look at my new Ultra Gameplayers magazine. Awing in excitement at the pictures of the 3D0. Little did i know it would turn out being one of the worst consoles in history next to the Atari Jaguar.

At a young age when little Kaos looked at those new consoles with invy. I learned the lesson very early to not branch far off from Nintendo. After eventually testing out the 3DO, the Jaguar, watching the sega saturn retire itself, watching the sega cd and 32x fall. Watching the Neo Geo attempt to charge me a record setting price of 599 US dollars. And only god knows what happened to the CDi. The lesson was driven home. Never turn your back on Nintendo.

Before all those consoles released and well after the destruction of %80 of the home consoles from the past. Nintendo stood proud on its two feet ready to continue to provide us with these amazing exclusives that we enjoy today. Those were some good times.
