32-bit era for me, I grew up with the Nintendo 64 and the PSX.. Was the only kid in my group of friends that actually owned a N64. The word SATURN seemed so much like a secret or rumor going around school, but all others ever talked about is a Playstation.
What I loved about the 32-bit era is the textures and the way the models looked.. Now everything looks so realistic that I might as well plug a controller into my window and look outside.
The term Arcade gameplay just doesn't get mentioned anymore or if it does.. it's very rare.
I have a Xbox-360 and a Nintendo Wii and I love the Wii, however my arms to end up getting tired holding the remote up so it won't disconnect or actually aim straight, 360 is most likely the closest you can really get as a arcade type system, but even the PS3 fails in that part.. They are so similar there is no competition as like the 16-bit wars against SEGA and Nintendo.. I've always wondered what the 16-bit era would of been like as a teenager, hearing about the updated graphics and which system to own etc, much like what we have today with the Wii, 360 and PS3. I just don't think it's the same.
