Enough to make an entire half-an hour retrospective.[/quote]

True but more then 95% of GBA games were 2D can't say the same about the DS as plenty of 3D titles as well as 2D

It certainly would’ve made the late 90’s more interesting. That 5th gen didn’t really have anything for me. It was so strange when the late 90’s landscape 5th gen got settled and there was such a specialized type of games. I’ll actuslly agree the PS1 had good 2d graphics. Shockingly since I can’t stand that console. A port of Metal Slug X runs better than other ports I’ve played for sure. And it looks great. Maybe I should explore the PS1’s 2d library more closely. The Saturn had some 2d games. That system really should’ve focused on 2d. I don’t really like the look of those games though. I know it had a lot of power, but I like the Neo Geo’s graphics a lot better than what I’ve seen of the Saturn.
