Neo Geo CD

As CD drive prices dropped, and as CDs had always been vastly cheaper than cartridges, SNK attempted to make their Neo Geo powerhouse of a console (and its games) almost affordable, and thus the Neo Geo CD was born. With the exception of the tiresome loading times, it was and still is a great console, sporting some of the most impressive 2D games ever developed.

Handily, you can grab a fully working Japanese version of the machine via this Neo Geo CD eBay auction.  The console comes in its original box with two controllers, manual, and all necessary cables, bits and varied pieces.

Eric the Unready (MS-DOS)

A lavishly illustrated text adventure with a clever interface and an absolutely bonkers plot, Eric the Unready by Legend Entertainment was sadly one of the last major commercial interactive fiction releases.

Super Mario Bros. 2: Mario Madness (NES)

Sega Saturn Boxed Bundle

Sega's Saturn complex architecture did allow for some absolutely stunning 2D games, while also making a few impressive early textured-mapped 3D tricks possible, but it sadly also made the console both expensive and difficult to code for. Still, the machine has aged very gracefully, and you can grab a working, boxed one via this Sega Saturn eBay auction.

The console on offer is in apparently very good condition, comes with its cables and things, and also two controllers. As for the (boxed) games included, they are a mighty fine selection including Nights Into Dreams, Tomb Raider, D, Command & Conquer, and  Virtua Fighter 2.

Amsptrad 6128 Plus

It was released late into the 16-bit period, and thus failed to really leave its mark, but the Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus was -- and still -- is a wonderfully impressive 8-bit micro. Its 4096-colours palette, hardware sprites and audiovisual tricks, 128kb of RAM, handy 3" drive, proper keyboard, cartridge port, and SCART video-out made it a machine that could almost compete with the likes of the Atari ST. On a good day, that is.

Yes, the Amiga 600 was a pointless update to Commodore's classic 16-bit machine back in 1992, and that was why it was swiftly discontinued.
