I am going against the grain and say the jump to the PS2/XB/GC was comparable with installing a Voodoo 3D accelerator card on your PC. 3D graphics went from low res 320p trash to playable 480p 60fps smoothness (on some games lime Metroid Prime). Dual analog controls became standard in that gen as well and 16:9 support. 16bit did have 3D, remember Star Fox et al, not a novelty of PS1/N64?

SNES/Genesis games are very playable today and so is anything on PS2 and beyond but PS1/N64 gen games are barely playable on real hardware.
