This is no doubt a dissappointment for Wii U owners, as besides Pokken Tournament, the lackluster Star Fox Zero, and the forthcoming Persona/Fire Emblem crossover Tokyo Mirage Sessions ?FE, there isn’t a whole lot to look forward to for the system this year.

We’re four generations deep into reasonably realistic 3D graphics based on nothing more than colored triangles, but if you go back to the first fully 3D console graphics the picture isn’t so pretty. And yet we loved these games all the same. Was it am amazing as we thought, or were we just kidding ourselves? Vinnk and Sean try to take off their rose-colored glasses and give a serious look to the Nintendo 64, Playstation, and Sega Saturn. What game franchises were born in that generation? Which ones met their untimely end?
