Motherbase... that was the Viewpoint - style game. I liked Viewpoint on the Neo Geo... didn't have a change to play Motherbase. Had one go through the shop, but at the time.... didn't have THE TIME to play it longer than testing the cart.
I liked Star Wars - it almost sold me back in the day... but like the Virtual Boy, the 32X wasn't given a chance. It just didn't the market presence and staying power. The other thing was SEGA. SEGA as a company just didn't cut it. They came up with LOADS of ground breaking stuff and helped shape the gaming industry... but they just couldn't seem to get their formula down.
With that said... Formulas help keep many businesses in business. But you just don't see the creativity today and trying to break the mold. This goes into music, cars, electronics, games... everyone doesn't want to push the envelope to something new and risk failure.
