Lots of shooters with 2D sprites overlayed on FMV, and fake "first person" games. Sega CD and TG CD had a bit of a benefit in that the companies making the primary games for them were mostly companies that made real games first, whereas on the PC side you had a lot of "game developers" come up out of the woodwork because in reality anyone can make a PC game with a minimum of investment and a lot of talent, back then anyway. But Sega and NEC too fell prey to these types of lame "games". 3DO came out and furthered this trend but once Playstation came out it got games back on track. PCs had already started to follow suit.
I would agree to this statement... however 3DO did have some good games that had FMV. Super Wing Commander, Wing Commander 3, Shockwave Assault 1&2 were all good games that had FMV without the typical crap of FMV games.... those were games in my opnion where the FMV was done right, and I am mostly looking at WC3...
