When this Genesis ad ran I was drooling with anticipation. Stereo sound, great games and Modem play. A Game modem on a console! Sadly the Telegenesis was pretty much a no go from the get go. Still this ad sums up the future of gaming – stereo sound, high def graphics and online play – and this was back in 1989.
I was a total Sega fanboy from Day 1. I even lined up to buy a Dreamcast on launch and I am not ashamed to say I have almost every US title in my collection (thank eBay).
