Sega can make a comeback dreamcast 2 please! if they were to be funded or team up with samsumg it would be the way to do it_they need good smart management. if they came back tomorrow with new games and sequels to even old 2d games, they would make millions. always was a sega fan.

I loved my Dreamcast as well. I remember being I think 12 or so and coming home from school with a Dreamcast and Sonic Adventure 1 sitting on my bed was a great surprise!

Sega's best days are long gone sadly.

It was the first console to nail arcade perfect 3D game ports.

It was basically Sega arcade hardware in the home.

The thrill of playing Soul Calibur, Powerstone, Virtua Tennis, House of The Dead 2, Ferrari 355 and Crazy Taxi at home was something else. It made the Playstation and N64 seem completely archaic by comparison.

Man what a great system and it's a shame Sega will never get the credit they desire for on-line and the like. Games were f***ing great. It's sad Sega has turned to well s***. I still got mine. I want to hook it up again one day. I got no room right now. I still want my god damn Shunmue so bad :(

Te system was also a 2-D fighter powerhouse man had some great stuff.

Sega got that online ball rolling for consoles and PSO was great fun. The fact they haven't re released Chu Chu rocket just shows how they have no clue. Too busy making countless Yakuza games that still play like they did on the PS2.

I want the Yakiza games but f***ing sega does not want to bring them over god damn it or when they do they cut s*** out. s*** all they need to do is change stuff to English text and make them DD games if the following is that small in North America.

Give me the damn HD remakes they did on PS3. I own the games but never played on PS2.

Long live the Dreamcast. It sucks that Sega isn't still around. So much wasted potential.

DC actually sold pretty well in it's short time. What killed it was lack of content from key third party devs. EA, Konami, SE, Namco all made either zero games or hardly any games.

DC's remaining games were generally very good. The 2k sports were great, Sega's arcadey games were solid, fighting games were all nice. Actually more games ran at 60 fps than PS2's first batch of games which were pretty lousy in year one. Yet PS2 still succeeded despite being about $150 more. When PS2 launched it was $300 and DC was already down to $150. DC even had a built in modem.

Goes to show that like any console generation, content is typically king. Although, Wii is a key outlier due to it's unique gameplay approach.

I didn't bother with DC. I wanted EA Sports and Ace Combat. None of them came out on DC.

DOA 2 was one of the coolest game I ever played.

Also gundam side story was my favorite.

What killed it was the ease of piracy. Not far after release people were creating SELF BOOTING ISO's that you could easily burn and play games where you did not need a modchip or swap disc, etc.

OH that HD Shenmue video it's such BS I will never got to read play see whatever the rest of the story. I always guessed the game was going to have two ending one where Ryu becomes like lan di because he kills him and one where he does not kill him when he beats him.
