    The math for higher order polygons is not that complex but the question is why would you want to use them? For some topologies it can be advantageous, but for nearly everything else triangles are much simpler and can still generate every shape. The exception is a circle, which might take a lot of triangles, but a lot of early 3D titles use sprites for circles anyway.

    Dreamcast up through the last generation It was cool to see a sphere in a game and see how smooth it was or wasn't. By late last gen, it was starting to look darn good. Now it seems easy for devs with current power in PC/consoles. There is a sequence in VanQuish where these robots that are spheres roll up and they look pretty flawless and being impressed by them at the time.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    I guess that explains why the Saturn version of WLS 98 is better the Saturn had the advantage for polygon footballs
