I think your find 3D was preferred from 1995 onwards after the Playstation and Saturn came out, otherwise the snes and megadrive would have stayed around until 2000!

The Neo-Geo was a 2D powerhouse in 1990, plus they never added memory to it...the rom cartridges got bigger sure but the base system stayed the same and it never had carts that enhanced the system like the SNES.
