    Okay, so I want to know what everyone else out there thinks. Do you like the Dreamcast? Do you hate it? Do you even know what it is?
    VOTE NOW!

    Also, feel free to post your Favorite Dreamcast titles. New/Independent releases are allowed!

    In my case, I love playing Wind & Water: Puzzle Battles, Triggerheart Exelica, Ikaruga, Karous, Radio Allergy/Radirgy, Chaos Field, Evolution, Sonic Adventure, and so many more that I just feel too lazy to finish the list X3

    Never had the chance to play on a Dreamcast. Such a shame.

    Unfortunately, despite its good games, the Dreamcast died a horrible death.

    Best Dreamcast game (and IMO best of all time [​IMG]): Shenmue I+II

    I voted for "It does have some really good games...", because I can`t consider the DC to be the greatest gaming console of all time because there were so many great systems! But it is most definitely a rather good one and as far as I know it was the savior for SEGA after they nearly fall into damnation because of the Saturn.

    So here`s to the Dreamcast [​IMG]

    BTW I love the DC-controller, even though it is as big as the console itself [​IMG]

    No the console wasn't the best ever. But it's games had a distinctive arcade style and at that time, were awesome. Sometimes SEGA can put out a very fresh polished game like JSR, and the Dreamcast had many of these. I tried Project Rub for the DS, and it just has that something in that same style.

    It was a great console, and i'm glad that i own one, but the library of games is woeful. It has some classics but far too few to be considered the best console ever.

    They still have some awesomeness today, call me old-fashioned. I do enjoy my VGA box and it at least makes the system still feel modern on my fancy-shmancy TV. Although, honestly, if I made an arcade cabinet I would DEFINITELY make the Dreamcast the core system XD
    Fun fact: Dreamcast and Xbox 360 are the only two consoles that natively support VGA.

    My favorite console of all time.
    SNES
    Then possibly my xbox then the 360

    Not a xbox fanboy but I just don't like ps2 or ps3's that much.

    I have a dreamcast but it paled in comparison to my 64 or SNES.

    Not sure if I would say it's the best console ever but it was certainly an exceptional product. I love mine dearly. It was sad to see it discontinued but I'm glad Sega's final console was truly a great piece of hardware.

    It's not my favorite console ever, but it does have a lot of great games. On top of that the homebrew scene for it is still active today. Some of my favorites are Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Crazy Taxi, Power Stone 1 and 2, Shenmue, and Border Down.

    House of the Dead + Dreamcast = epic.

    (it was my cousins, he left it there for the family to play when we visited, lol it wasn't my grandmas xD)

    It's both underrated and overrated.


    It's a very good system, but not the best one.
