Dreamcast Best Console Ever

So who's getting the 360?

 

Seeing as the consoles have become stripped down computers, I'll stick with my PC for now

It makes alot more sense to spend 300 bucks for a console, with broadband online gaming, and knowing that every game you buy will play without fault on the system, then paying 2,500 - 3,000 dollars to play the top computer games.

 

360 is hardly like the typical video game system either.

I think the $300 is better spent investing in a computer. We all have a computer (obviously) so a $300 upgrade can signifigantly upgrade that machine

That article wasnt even about what was the best system, it was about what system had the best release...

 

Still I think it came at a bad time. X box and PS2 followed too soon after.

I dont think that is what this article is getting at...it is looking just at the release.

 

The hype, the original games lineup, the features.

 

I remember being in 9th grade when that thing came out, the whole 9-9-99 thing go in alot of people's heads. It was a hot item.

 

Also, the dreamcast killed itself, PS2 didnt come out for more then a year later and XBox was two years later.

Dreamcast bombed because all of its "must haves" weren't anything great. Seaman, Shenmue...*yawn.* By the time fantasy star online or whatever it was called came out, the thing was good as dead.

 

It's a shame because I liked Dreamcast more than PS2 around the same time because I thought Sega made better games (especially fighting and sports games), but all the other stuff that PS2 and XBOX brought to the table appealed to the casual audience, and that ultimately did it in.

DC died also because it was too easy to make bootleg copies since anyone with a CD burner could copy a game.

 

And Virtua Tennis is still the best tennis game ever

 

It felt like it didn't even have any games to copy.

 

Resident Evil 2, 3, Codename Veronica

Dino Crisis

Sonic Adventures

Virtual Fighter 3

Sega 2K sports series

Shenmue 1 & 2

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare

Mortal Kombat Gold

Ready 2 Rumble

Crazy Taxi 1 & 2

House of the Dead 3

 

Yeah, you're right. There were no games on that console.

dreamcast was a great console, it just didn't sell because after the failures of 32x, Sega CD, saturn, nobody wanted to have anything to do with any sega products

the N64 and Gamecube have both been crap, but Nintendo will always have their loyal following which is keeping them alive

I like my Cube better than an X-Box - more games. The only thing I'm missing on the Cube is the Final Fantasy series.
