Atari Jaguar: Lessons learned from a failed console

It’s no secret that the Atari Jaguar was a terrible failure–one of gaming’s worst. The last dud in the sordid history of Atari’s Tramiel family ownership, the Jaguar followed the Lynx’s underrated hardware debut in the late 1980s with an early ’90s abomination of poorly designed hardware and software.But why bring up that now?

The story is too old to be commented.

Lmao, I know right? I still want a Neo Geo. They were and still are too expensive.

I got one on Ebay a few years ago for $50 and its a pretty interesting system. There are a few good games like Alien vs Predator, Tempest 2000, and Rayman, as well as some really strange ones like Attack of the Mutant Penguins that aren't necessarily bad, but are just weird as hell.

Bad controller that had stupid numbers on it. Also, it was expensive. The thing was hard to program for as well, true if you added up all the processors it was 64 bit, but at the time developers didn't know how to take advantage of it.

They had a flying game that looked a lot like Starfox, but Starfox looked and played better on the Super Nintendo.
