    3D games of the 90s that have aged the best

    in Gaming Discussion 11 hours ago

    F-Zero X is another great example I feel. It runs at 60fps which was rare for 3D console games of the time, and like Starfox 64 its design sidesteps the camera and control problems of a lot of early 3D titles. Still plays like a dream over 20 years later. ...

    Great responses, though I should probably have elaborated in my OP that I mean in terms of gameplay as well as graphics. Cerebralbore101 said: 4. Starfox 64 This is probably my number 1 pick, as thanks to its simple design it doesn't have the camera/control/framerate woes that so many early 3D games suffered from. ...

    Mr Puggsly said: I did mention some impressive UE4 games. Hellblade on Switch is not a great looking game in my opinion, but that game wasn't built for Switch anyway. The Yoshi game on Switch has an unusually low resolution albeit 60 fps. Maybe the Yoshi game should have been UE3, could have had similar visuals with a better resolution. I mean its like 600p? That's pretty...

    3D games of the 90s that have aged the best

    in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

    It's often claimed that games from the early years of 3D haven't aged particularly well, as like any new form of technology, 3D gaming had its growing pains and has progressed a long way since its primitive beginnings. Which 3D game from before the year 2000 do you think has aged the most gracefully, and why?...

Even at its height it was never particularly popular there, and this gen they may as well not bothered localizing it. Heck, about the only place where Xbox One sells even decently is in America, and even there it tends to lag well behind Switch and...

    Team Sonic Racing is... different than I was expecting. It actually reminds me very much of Mario Kart Wii; that more chaotic brand of Kart action with powerful items being used constantly, as opposed to previous Sonic Racing games which focused more on the driving and toned down the item use a bit compared to MK. ...

    Mr Puggsly said: curl-6 said: A very early version of the concept was in development for the original Xbox using UE2; it was probably easier and cheaper to keep their established baseplate and bolt new techniques and technologies onto it than restart it with UE3.
