Before Polygons : Sega's Legacy of 3D (Youtube Video)

Youtube's recommendation algorithms were useless and just plain annoying for a while. 
Seems like they're coming back around.

This video about Sega's history with 3D effects before polygons popped up in my feed.
There are a lot of nice looking games in there which I haven't played enough.

It's interesting to play their 3DS release of Galaxy Force.  I think the sprite based 3D actually looks better with the 3D functionality of the console turned off.  Thunder Blade is another one that's a wash, too.



This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

That's been popping up in my feed a lot as well. Got it saved for a watch later at some point (last weekend being entirely taken up bingeing on s3 of Stranger Things).

What about games like Final Lap or Suzuka 8h?
