An ill-fated multimedia console from the early 90's, developed by Philips. Known best for harboring some of the worst games ever made, many of which are so bad that they're actually fantastic. "Zelda: Wand of Gamelon" and "Link: Faces of Evil" are the games most people associate with the device.

The Playstation 3 is the CD-i of our time.
a gaming console that should never have been invented!

the kids next door crying and bats are flying out of hell...
whos playing cd-i?
Widely considered one of (if not the) worst console(s) of all time, even surpassing systems like the Sega CD, 32X and 3DO, which each had at least 1 decent game each.
Its most (in)famous games included the Nintendo-licensed Zelda games Faces of Evil/Wand of Gamelon/Zelda's Adventure, along with Hotel Mario.
Interestingly, the CD-i would live on to finally entertain people (in a way) about a decade and a half after its release, when the Youtube Poop fad (which is heavily rooted in the horrendously bad, yet hilarious, Nintendo FMVs).
Notable cd-i game quotes:
"Enough! My ship sails in the morning. I wonder what's for dinner?"
"There is no time, your sword is enough!"
"You DARE bring light into my lair? YOU MUST DIE?!!!"
