Not have music during the gameplay, I mean

I'm sure there's more

Limited available sound channels
Limited cartridge space

Limited development

Since the Jaguar was very short-lived, programmers hadn't figured most of the quirks to properly exploit its power.
For exemple, Doom famously used the sound processor to calcul the hit detections.

that controller will never stop being funny

Because most of its games were made by Europeans.

Euro computers often give a choice of either music OR sound effects

The only thing that I remember about the Jaguar was that some store in a mall was offloading all of their Jag merchandise (this was just after Atari did their reverse acquisition thing in 96). I could've bought a mega-deluxe box set of the Jaguar game system for $50 dollars and probably every single Jag accessory & game that they had (plus the CD drive) for $200 total.

I passed it up because I was too tired at the time and just wanted to go home.

Not my finest hour.

So you saw the deluxe box and reddit-spaced out of there huh.

The fact that the Jaguar port of Doom used that processing power for hit detection and stuff, is probably why overall, the port actually ran so well.

You really didn't miss out that hard.

At least the arcade version got two good memorable games.

I remember the exact same thing at Kaybee Toys at the mall - a literal wall of new Jags for $50.

Still, it would have been nice to sock away a room full of that shit to sell now at big profit. Reminds me of seeing Saturn Rayearth (US ver) brand new at EB when it came out for like $50.
