I'm not sure ANY system aside from the NES or Atari 2600 ever got pushed to its absolute fullest.
and no, I disagree that the Dreamcast always had smoother, cleaner graphics.
That's just the general consensus. Look at videos on Youtube and read comments. Look at polls comparing early PS2 games that were on Dreamcast as well. You'll see it's not just me who feels that way. The point here for me is how much do you value potential and big numbers in comparison to how these games ACTUALLY look and how smooth they run?
Are you into cars? I am and can find similarities. You can find many examples of cars that have significantly more power but are slower or perform worse due to factors such as gearing, computer tech and even weight etc. Yes PS2+Gamecube>Dreamcast on paper but I never felt that way actually playing all the systems.
