    Dreamcast.

    As long as you get an old one you can just burn the games to a CD-R and they'll boot.

    Ebay and local stores might have some good deals but you should try craigslist and classifieds as well. I remember spending 50 dollars for 60 games 2 controllers and the whole system from a classified.

    Not everyone likes to pirate.

    Not everybody likes to spend $200 for a "Collectors item" when it comes to the rarer video games.

    Well if your going to pirate I would say dreamcast since playstation 1 requires mod chips or software. I guess you could play it on your pc but it seems like you want the console.

    Wait why don't you buy a used Playstation 2 and mod that or get it pre modded. Right now it is probably in the 50 dollar price range and will let you play backups or Playstation 2 and 1 games.

    As there's no option for the MegaDrive, I'll say Dreamcast.

    if you want free games go with dreamcast, if your going to actually buy games and want good ones I'd go with n64 or PS1, look up their game libraries and see which has more games that interest you

    Go for the Dreamcast. The other two are easier to emulate.

    PS1 due to the fact that has the LARGEST library of games, you is talking about from 1996 till 2002? You have like Jet Moto 2, Vigilante 8, Parasite Eve, Silent Bomber, Medieval, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, Tekken 3, Marvel vs Capcom, Marvel vs Street Fighter, Kain's Soul Reaper, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Crash (If you want to enjoy them), Spyro the good ones before Sony fuck'd it up! PLAYSTATION!!! ALL THE WAY!!!

    Because the Dreamcast is one of the greatest consoles ever made.
    And the easiest to pirate.

    How is Dreamcast not winning? What the fuck is wrong with you people?

    EDIT: That's a little better, lets keep it this way. Or else I'm gonna have to get out my stabbing knife.
