When the gaming world turned its eye to 3D in the 32/64-bit era, some franchises made the leap gracefully. Mario and Link knocked the ball out of the park with their three-dimensional debuts, Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. Bubsy did not make that same leap. While he was certainly no Mario or Link to begin with, this wretched platformer ensured that the snarky bobcat would become a gaming footnote at best.

Bubsy 3D was a notoriously awful title when it released in 1996, and we expected the worst when we decided to revisit it 16 years later. You can watch Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and myself struggle with the title below, and be sure to stay tuned for the second segment.
