Personally the CD-I is possibly the most dullest system on the planet, with no redeeming features whatsoever. Hell, I could even find more redeeming features in a toaster than a CD-I.
Toasters are pretty useful kitchen appliances... which game platforms compare to the utility of a toaster would be highly debatable
In regard to the CDi, it's a system that I enjoy but I can't claim that everyone will like it if they give it a chance. Alice in Wonderland is an amazing update of the Commodore 64 classic IMO and I found it really engaging once I got into it. It tripped me out more than any game in recent memory. Other games that I think stand out are Lost Ride, Steel Machine, Burn Cycle, Voyeur, Atlantis, Hotel Mario, Zenith, Flashback, Arcade Classics, Plunderball, and possibly Thunder in Paradise (if you have the gun). There are some other solid games on the system too that I wouldn't necessarily buy the system for like Dimo's Quest, 7th Guest, Inca .etc. I have given every platform that I listed a chance and needless to say the CDi did not make my list because I'm a bit of a fan
- Super Marathon is commonly known as the crowd pleaser for the system because it's a good game for a popular genre. And it was developed by Bungie. I think L-Zone is great too. Jungle Park is the best version of the game and has a small cult following for other platforms (I wasn't a big fan). Shockwave Assault has some nice enhancements over the other versions if you like it. T-Break is a good peg solitaire game. Some of the other good games are Japanese only (Gadget, Gundam .etc). There are Power Rangers and Racing days which aren't all that great but aren't the worst either. At least they show off the 32-bit capabilities of the system in ways that many other pippin games dont.
- Chip Chan Kick, Super God Trooper, and Zenki FX are above average.
- Tempest 2000, Space Invaders XL, Merlin Racing and Freefall I find playable. I do not really like Iron Solder 3, Iron Solider 1 is interestingly the only game in the series that I have ever liked. Still I don't remember the last time I played the Nuon even though it's been hooked up to my family room TV for years as a DVD player.

Cybiko was pretty bad, the overall quality really sucked although it had some really decent games.
I always wanted one of those when I was in gradeschool, it looked even cooler once I found out there was an MP3 player addon but for some reason I never got around to buying one even after the prices fell sharply
