Who did it: Nintendo
Nintendo sure is on this list a lot.
After the success of pretty much every console before it, Nintendo decided to do something different. They wanted to take gamers into a world of 3-D! Unfortunately, said world consisted of red lines that hurt the eyes and gave you a headache. The Virtual Boy didn't really last long enough to be considered a major player in the gaming business. Most wrote it off and didn't take it seriously. It was Nintendo's first major fumble. Unfortunately, it wasn't their last.
