Why was Sega CD so hated?

 



Mistakes include


  • Marketing

  • Price

  • Games

  • Time of release



The biggest problem with marketing came from the idea of someone trying to market it as CD 32 system when Playstation or Saturn was about to come out when it was no better than it is was overall when you could just wait a few months then buy Sega next console or Playstation or N64 for Nintendo. https://www.game24hours.com/2022/09/sega-history-with-success-and-failures.html



The price was a lot more than the price of Megadrive this alone makes it look way over priced.


The games were often very healthy rushed meaning the gameplay would be bad most of the time plus not a lot of gameplay in them all overall.


The games did have a lot of  Potential but over most of them being rushed to  sell to get them sold before Saturn came out this meant a lot of games could had gone from like Amazing Sonic games or very amazing like Megadrive games into like 32 bit system for example imagine Splatter house on Cd 32 that could had made the whole system something Sega could have kept working on for even like 5 years if they release a fun or amazing game it could have turned into a profit from them big time but they never took it to serious was the big problem with them overall.


A big problem a lot of people bought up was it was very hard  to  program games for it overall for example Wonder Dog  to me looks no better graphic wise than Snes or Megadrive game looks overall and I think a lot of people would think by how it looks it was 16 bit not 32 bit as the CD claimed it would be a  lot of the games look very low quality for modern times to me if you compare it to like Final Fantasy 7 the difference is giant when you compare it to like the CD system overall.


A lot of videogame firms did not want to release games for it since they all knew about  Saturn or Playstation as such getting games made for them was better idea than hiring people  to program for a system will be gone in the next months probably for why only a tiny amount of firms made games for the system which I felt was also big reason so many of the games sucked overall only 2 games out of 34 were any good which even Sega today will admit they regret making the system the American Chairman at the time admit it was stupid idea to release the Sega CD when even the main guy behind the company admits it’s a bad idea it does not sound good for a possible customer who bought it before but if you just want system as simply a collector item it could be pretty good overall but gameplay worst system they ever made by a large amount to me.


The last game they made which came  in the Japanese language would be Shadowrun was release for both the SNES and Megadrive the same time so in a lot of ways it would make sense being on it but it is more less just like at best update version of it since overall it plays very similar to it and has more less exact same storyline as well but just with a slight improvement which is not much to me in all cases for how it looks or plays in are our thoughts.


The system would often overheat or smell which did not help for people using it long term for example if you played it for like 2 hours or more it would give of like burning smell which does show it was not made in a high quality way either which did not help overall it as like collector console as well to me.



When it advertisement was done in the  past for Sega,Nintendo,Sony were all just months away from releasing three own 32 bit systems as well as such it made the idea of buying the product seem to most people kind of silly overall plus nothing was really being marked well since if you were like a Sega fanboy  you would probably just wait for the Saturn and buy that instead of waste money on a system that they will probably not make many games for it anymore so buying it was for adults or parents was overall not something to many did plus the price of it did scare of a lot of people as well since  the idea of addon costing more than Megadrive made it seem very overpriced if they cut the price a  lot it could had being more popular and they spent more time on creating good quality games it could had ended up a well respected system possibly

Review of Soccer Kid

 Classic game from the Amiga but it got ported to some other consoles such as the SNES as well  the basic of the game you play as boy known as Soccer Kid but it should be called Football since everywhere in the world it's called Football so it should be known as Football Kid . https://www.game24hours.com/2022/08/donkey-kong-country-review.html Has a very Amiga look to it for the animation style of the characters or part of the games which if you were  bit older or used older games then you should like the style of this kind of game a lot. Has a very 1990s style of gaming experience to it being platformer but styled in the sort of Arcade style of being fast-paced overall. The storyline is kind of basic a Alien steals the World cup from the winner competition before then the Alien crashes which leaves the kid to go around the world to bring back  all the parts of the Cup from say London in the UK to Moscow in Russia to the other countries. Some people may get killed often on it such

Adventures of Yogi Bear Review

 A fun steady paced platformer with the main guy from the cartoons of the past Yogi bear for why he was put into a game the jumps are ranging from hard to easy for some of them and also when you drop on a baddie he dies . The long jumps can be hard going from different parts of the game but it can look good jumping in the game a lot since it has very similar designs to the cartoons which were made before the game was created the idea behind why Yogi was put in was in regards it being fashional to add in a famous person to make a game sell better normally. You collect items that look 1800 century style of clocks which you collect and by jumping on top of the picnic which gives you a point but getting more than one jump to land on the other picnics can be hard to do I found overall.

Ace o Nerae! Review

 IT's a tennis game with good graphic but because of how slow you move in the game it's very hard to win at it overall it could have being  a lot more fun if you could move fast but the hitting graphic wise looks very fine IT was based on Manga of the past for why it has a strong Manga look for the men or women Tennis players overall as maybe like a quick game to play it could be okay I guess but long term it would be suck unless someone can program it better if that happened then the game would be way better in my thoughts overall.
