The 2D-3D jump during the 32/64 bit generation immediately came to mind when I saw the thread topic. The best example is probably Mario 64, Nintendo nailed the transition of the franchise to 3D. At the same time, that generation also saw the best and worst of the Castlevania series for example, with SOTN sticking to its 2D roots and becoming and instant classic while the Castlevania 64 games were pretty terrible from what I remember. Took another gen before we finally got a decent 3D Castlevania game (Lament of Innocence).

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.
