NEC's PC-FX is a 32-bit, CD-based console that was released exclusively in Japan back in 1994. Despite being a 2D powerhouse, it was quite expensive and lacked out-of-the-box 3D acceleration; it thusly never really sold that well. The machine only got 62 games released for it and, to this day, remains the only console to look like a (beautiful) PC. Oh, and you can always grab this brilliantly preserved, complete and boxed NEC PC-FX via eBay. Seller ships worldwide.

Wonderland by Magnetic Scrolls (Amiga)

Wonderland was released by Magnetic Scrolls back in 1990 and was a brave attempt to re-imagine and save commercial interactive fiction. Not only was it a sprawling adventure sporting excellent graphics and more than a few animations that came in a big box filled with goodies, but it also featured an innovative, windows-based, point-and-clickable interface which minimized typing and made the gameplay just flow.
