The PC-FXGA had a relatively small library of games, with only around 30-35 games released specifically for the console. Some popular games for the PC-FXGA include: Rayxanber III: A side-scrolling shooter game Spriggan: A action game The Firemen: A action game Brandish: A action-RPG game The NEC PC-FXGA was not a commercial success, it was criticized for its high price, lack of popular games and its late release, which came at a time when the market was already dominated by more advanced consoles like the Sony PlayStation and the Sega Saturn. Due to the poor sales, NEC decided to discontinue the PC-FXGA in 1998. The PC-FXGA is now considered a collector's item and is highly sought after by NEC enthusiasts and retro gaming enthusiasts. However, it's worth noting that due to the limited release of the console, games and accessories for the PC-FXGA are relatively scarce and hard to find.
