Yeah, the CD-i was a big buildup to a big disappointment. Kind of like a blind date who pees her pants at the beginning of the date.
"Full Motion Video" was another buzzword used to peddle this console... We all know how far THAT got... About as far as "A Fork in the Tale" with the psudo-talented Rob Schnieder. CD-i DID have a few second party titles... Rise of the Robots and Lemmings, to name a few... But almost every other platform had these titles, anyway.
It is emulated now, though. At last, the CD-i may be worth the price of admission. Free.
