Hello all.

I am a big 3DO fan - I was one of the shmo's that was there forking over the $700 for this console at it's release.  IMHO, there were a great deal of great deal of games released for this system.  Hopefully I caught the big ones here in this poll.  Your thoughts?

Hm...to tell you the truth, I think I was too young back then to even understand what the 3DO was - I was 9 years old when the 3DO hit the German market in 1995 (kinda late, huh? Same year as Saturn and PSX, too), and back then, all I was interested in were the Super Nintendo and Game Boy. I still have to get a 3DO someday, but it's kinda difficult to get a console complete with its box and manual in Europe.

As for your list, you definitely got the obvious choices Wing Commander III and Super Street Fighter II, even though I think there might be a handful of other games worth mentioning.

What about FIFA International Soccer, for example? The 3DO version received rave reviews in Europe for being a revolutionary step up from the 16-bit FIFA games graphically and in terms of gameplay. Some even considered it to be the best soccer game of that time, together with International Superstar Soccer Deluxe, dethroning Sensible Soccer.

Super Wing Commander isn't too bad, either, judging from what I've heard at least.

Gex received critical praise at least from some magazines as well, and it sure looks like the best platformer on the system.

Let's not forget Samurai Showdown, which, supposedly, was more faithful to the arcade and NeoGeo versions than the SNES and Genesis ports.

Then there's Need for Speed, perhaps. Probably not so great anymore, but noteworthy as the granddaddy of the series.

As a more obscure choice, why not Daedalus Encounter? An interactive movie with surprisingly ambitious production values and starring Tia Carrere  inlove.

Well, maybe as some sort of gag, why not make a poll for the worst 3DO game after this one? There are quite some nice choices, after all: Mazer, Kingdom: The Far Reaches, Sewer Shark, Strahl, Way of the Warrior or Virtuoso...and tons of low quality interactive movies.

I had never even heard of the 3DO until I started collecting a few years ago. I only knew of Nintendo, Sega and Playstation growing up. I've managed to find a couple 3DO games since then though and have only played a few minutes of each. Of the ones you listed in your poll, I've only played Out of this World. It seemed like it could be a fun game, but I just couldn't get into it. I'll probably give it another go sometime though.
Of the other games I've played, the only other one I played for more than a minute was Gridders, it seemed fun but I couldn't really figure out the goal of the game so I quit after a few minutes. Another one I'll probably get back to at one point.

I have yet to own a 3DO and the only games I've played on it are Street Fighter II and Night Trap. With that said, the mystique I get from the system are:
Star Fighter
Wolfenstein 3D
Stellar 7
Return Fire

Also Icebreaker seems like a promissing game to play as well. The others listed have either been played on another system or computer, or appear over hyped for the system. Wolf3D and Stellar7 have been played dozens of time on my PC but just sound too fun on the 3DO to not give them a try.

I voted Night Trap, because it's the only game I've played on the 3DO. It was at a friend's, never owned one myself Smiley

My vote goes to Night Trap.  Beautifully done on the 3do and still a blast to play for those who love FMV games.

I was thinking of Need for Speed myself! Smiley I never actually played it, but I know the first NFS was released on the 3DO. Would've voted for it if it was in the  poll.

Good suggestions. 

Need For Speed did rock, as did FIFA and for that matter Madden.  I did tend to try to stick to the best popular games for the system and hit every genre.  Gex was a complete miss for me (both on this poll and the game itself).

I thought I would add some 3do love to this old post.  I own one and around 30 games and love the system.

It introduced many games that we know today - Road Rash (best version on any system), Need for Speed (best version), Space Hulk (best version), Foes of Ali (1st game which led to Fight Night from EA), Fifa (1st 3d version of Fifa), John Madden (1st 3d version of Madden). It also introduced a headphone port in the Joypad (PS4 anyone?). It was also the first region free console.

Such a shame on the price which stopped it from properly taking off - oh and a certain PS1 of course.
