Bad timing In a nutshell, especially with 32 Bit consoles like PlayStation and Sega Saturn so close to releasing.

I had one back then, but once I saved up enough for a playstation it was a wrap on that.

The 32X was the single worst purchase of a console I've ever done.

I remember I bought because the Sega Saturn was too expensive.

Kinda reminds me of the situation we in right now with the Series S and Series X.

Could be worse. You could've convinced your parents to buy you a CD-i. My dad gave me hell for almost a year.

32x was not a true 32 bit system. It displayed more colors and some advantages.

No game development
Most of the upgrades were trash like MK2 on genesis vs 32x
Games were 69.99

This when Sega of America was starting fu*k up

I still feel bitter about how they fumbled saturn and Dreamcast. i owned both

It was a wasted investment for sega.

The games didn't meet the hype.

It looked like a toilet bowl.

Dreamcast has to be the biggest fumble in console history. That console was ahead of its time and had potential to dominate.

I did not take the bait with the Sega CD or the 32x.

Sega CD was tempting tho because I really wanted Eternal Champions with the new characters & endings.

3DO was about to get copped too cuz it was the only console that had Super SFII Turbo at the time. sh*t was ruff back then.

Lol my pops got me a model 1 with a genesis from some teenager saving up for high end roller blades back in the 90ís came with a sh*t load of games too and Iím pretty sure my pops got it for cheap.

I was looking at that kid like he was Jesus come back because I had wanted a Sega forever.

Had my a*s playing Mary Shellyís Frankenstein just cuz I could lmfao. Had no idea what was going on.

There was a cool Jurassic park point/click game too, just wish I was old enough to understand the puzzles.

Thankfully, Saturn and Dreamcast both aged like fine wine.
