For some reason music in 1990s, at least to me was better than most of the music that plays today.

Oh boy. This thread is way off topic. Lol. 90's in general is my favorite decade for music, but the mainstream rock around the Dreamcast launch was mostly not to my liking.

Understood. We should get back to the DC indeed lol

It may have been with us only briefly, but what an impact it's had on us since then. :)



Some days I just blow up.

I'm a huge fighting game enthusiast. So the Dreamcast was by far the best thing smoking til PS2 hit. I'm talking both Marvel vs Capcom titles, Capcom vs SNK, Power Stone 1 and 2, Soul Caliber, Rival Schools, All Street Fighter 3 renditions (3rd Strike is the best of them tho), Street Fighter Alpha 3, and a few more. I still have my Dreamcast in pristine condition. It looks exactly like it did when I bought it back in 2000. No yellowing or anything like that. I still have all my controllers, and VMUs. Some still in the box. I adored that console. One of my favorite consoles of all time. Definitely ahead of it's time.

One of the greatest consoles ever made. If Sega hadn't been in such a deep hole perhaps things would have turned out a bit differently.

Agreed. They put their eggs all in one basket, outside of the Saturn not being a commercial success. Also the PS2 was coming. Yeah man I bummed to see Sega go under like that. Imagine if they were still in the console business. I think we would have another powerful innovative console that would compete with the other 3.

Great console! SEGA’s best for sure, it’s sad that they couldn’t give it the time it deserved anymore.



Thanks for the reminder xD

Sega was always on the Vanguard even if things wouldn't pan out. The DC however was such a well put together system, great price point, serviceable online play and a great catalog of games. I agree Sega was an innovator in this business.

The 90s were Magical in all aspects...especially in gaming. The 3-D era was in its pioneering stages still, and while the N64 was the first to get it right, the DC really polished up the visuals ...I mean in those days I remember looking a wooden textures and saying "Finally wood looks like freaking wood" lol Great times ...oh glorious High school days.
