Why the Dreamcast is the best system ever.

The last Hardcore system?

The last Hardcore system?

To clear things up, I am not saying the new systems are bad.When I think of the my favorite times playing games I think back to the time I had my Dreamcast and playing Marvel vs Capcom 1 and Sonic Shuffle(say what you want about Sonic Shuffle, but I had fun). The Dreamcast was a system for the Hardcore and the casuals (grunts) with the excellent 2K series for sports fans and 2d fighters for fighting fans.Here is a list of Dreamcast games that even though I did not enjoy doesn’t mean they suck:
Chu Chu Rocket.

Actually, I think that is the only Dreamcast I couldn’t get into.

Anyway, I feel the console market is just too mainstream for any cool niche games cause all companies are to busy looking for the next Halo or Gears which is not a bad thing but, it shows how lazy we are now at games. We don’t like to take risks anymore, the new business strategy is if one thing is good clone it and make more money until we are sick of it. After playing Gears of War 2 I wondered how long I would be able to enjoy this, Horde was pretty cool but, you can only play horde for so long before it just gets tiresome. I don’t hate gears or Halo I’m just sick of shooters that is all we make anymore!

I guess what I’m trying to say is that the Dreamcast had the most variety out of any system I have ever owned and I don’t think there will ever be another one like it.

    i definitely agree with you
    and you did make a couple valid points
    i mean the variety of the dreamcast was one of it’s greatest qualities
    but you didn’t do much to support your points
    if i was talking about how dreamcast was the best system ever
    i’d be talking about all the fun i had playing jet grind radio
    the first game to use cel-shaded graphics
    or how it was the first console to support online play out of the box
    or how it was the first console to support native 480p
    dreamcast was revolutionary
    in both games graphics and peripherals

    Just wait till I win the lotto, start my own Design and production company. Then you’ll start seeing some new ideas in games.
