I still have it.

Maybe I need to hook it up and get a little ALTTP or Mario All Stars or ISS Deluxe going.

CF86, what you know bout that dreamcast bruh?

Clearly the best of all time. Already had one, saw that rare black Sega Sports one at a game store about 2 years ago for 50 bucks, and said fukk it and bought it just cause lol. Love that damn system, still play it every now and then. And burned so many damn games for it too.

I've collected all the controller and vmu colors accept yellow, that bitch is super rare to find. And bought the arcade stick last year, since we all know dreamcast was the best arcade to console port of all time.

And like TheMarkMadsen said, still get some new games every now and then, but they are mostly shooters.

Got the dreamcast connected to my HDTV right now with the VGA adapter, pushes the graphics to 480p and can match just about any thing graphically a Wii can. Shenmue for example is just beautiful in 480p

Yea, I use to buy em too, but some of the good stuff, like Marvel vs Capcom 2, people wanted too much damn money. So I just went into burning them. Super easy, all you need is a burning program like Discjuggler or Alchohal 120%, and some blank CDRs.

And getting games is real easy. When a console goes out of production and games are no longer sold for it, it is officially legal to download and burn games for it. So for now, Dreamcast, Xbox 1 and Gamecube are legal. The reason Dreamcast is the most popular method is cause you don't need to mod the system like other consoles, you ca literally burn it, pop it in and play it. Some people blame this as part of Dreamcast's downfall in the early 2000's, but oh well, might as well enjoy it now lol.

So it's like burning any CD basically? Download with one of those programs and burn? I may do that instead of buying any games. Will standard CDR's have enough space on disk for a game? I would assume no.

In just two years in America Dreamcast made at least 15 classic games which is a great rate. If it got 10 years like the PS2 can't imagine how far it could have went. It's one of gaming's biggest tragedies honestly. Sony crushed everybody...

Here are the exact side by side specs of the actual hardware.



Dreamcast: 128-bit, 200 MHz main processor, with 16 megs of system RAM, 8 megs of dedicated video RAM and 2 megs of audio RAM.

PS2: 128-bit, 294 MHz main processor, with 32 megs of system RAM and 4 megs of video RAM.


So you see they are comparable. More video RAM for Dreamcast, more system RAM for PS2 which at that level really doesn't make a difference. Just like the PS3 did vs 360... Sony once again claimed 5 times the polygons yet it translated to nothing. PS3 graphics can be matched by 360 despite that and Dreamcast usually won graphics comparisons to PS2 in reviews.

Anyways I digress... I don't want us to debate really, just curious to see what you guys have at the top of your list. If people feel compelled you can even give a top 3 or a top 5.

One of the things that doesn't get talked about a lot with the Dreamcast failing is the controller. Sega seriously took a step back in design with only one analog stick, especially after the PS1 had introduced us to the 2-stick Dual Shock a generation before Dreamcast. The lack of commitment from Third Parties was the final nail though. With that, when I think of "Music" (and I mean GOOD music), I think of the Dreamcast and the games it was putting out.

My favorite system is the Xbox 360, because it combines the best of the old games with the New (and the compatible Xbox 1 games in between-Ninja Gaiden Black is golden). IDK, the Xboxes always felt like the spiritual successors to Dreamcast for me anyway.

Disagree, as the second half of my username suggest, I am a HUGE streetfighter/general fighting game fan. So I can be very picky about my controllers, specifically the feel of the buttons. And Dreamcast is honestly one of my favorite controllers of all time. Bar none, the BEST D-Pad on a controller, period. Xbox 360's D-pad was shit til they released the new adjustable ones. And even though Dreamcast didn't have the second analog, they are the ones who established the essential perfected analog position, which is on the left above the D-Pad. Both Sony and Nintendo failed imo, Nintendo's being in the middle was awkward feeling for certain games, and Sony STILL has realized that dual analog's right next to each other can be umcomfortable. Dreamcast also established the triggers, which have become a staple for the gaming, especially for shooters and driving games. And CF86 already talked about how the VMU is STILL ahead of its time, we are just now seeing something similar with the Wii-U and Xbox's Smart Glass just announced at E3 this year.

Definitely, especially with the fantasy genre. I remember reading about how Sega's president at the time was strongly against RPGs on the dreamcast, and felt it wasn't something that would catch on in america. Well, Square-Enix proved them VERY wrong.

In a sort of way, it is. Remember that when dreamcast was on the scene, they had a VERY important partner that was a major part of the push into the online multiplayer world, and that was Microsoft. And they had a very close relationship as Microsoft even developed OS software for the dreamcast, never seen before on another system, Windows CE. So the connection between Sega and Microsoft was definitely strong, and its easy to see how Microsoft borrowed elements from the dreamcast.

Here is the article that came out a few years that explains how Dreamcast and Xbox 360 (Also my favorite current system) can be eerily similar in certain aspects.

No, standard CDR's are ABSOLUTELY enough. You might run into a few games that require special 99 min CDs, but the plain ole CDR's that you would buy to burn songs, that's all you need most of the time.

it's very true that Microsoft developed the Dreamcast OS, but it was NOT the first console to run a Microsoft OS... the first "game" console to run a Microsoft OS was the Memorex VIS!!

N64 (gaming prime)
NES (so young, few games)
Sega Genesis
Gamecube
XBox
Xbox 360 & PS3

I love them all though really. The Gamecube could have been closer to #1 if it had released more games in the US. N64 was my favorite and I enjoyed it the most because it pushed the envelope for it's time with plenty of great games. Especially when I was upgrading from a Genesis to a N64. The difference was truly amazing. Super Mario 64, Goldeneye, Zelda and Turok were some of my favorites.

By the way, I disagree with people who hate on the controller. I loved that thing, despite the joystick wearing out so easily. The N64 controller was great and I refuse to buy their Gamecube styled version of it.
