Story time:

> Be me.
> 6 years old.
> 2002.
> Ask dad for Playstation2 because I played my cousin's and loved Ratchet and Clank.
> Gets dreamcast instead.
> Complain because I was a **** when I was 6.
> Play console anyway.
> Two weeks later after playing the hell out of Fur Fighters and Sonic Adventures 1 & 2.
> Give dad biggest hug of his life.

> 19 now.
> Every year on my birthday we dust off the old Dreamcast and play each other for hours.
> I'm a lot better than him but I let him win anyway because he did it for me when I was a kid.

When I came to the internet for the first time and found out the dreamcast was called a failure it hurt, because nothing could be further from the truth for me. It was the best thing that had ever happened in my life when I was 6 and I'd be a different guy without it.

Thanks SEGA.

******* this.

Dreamcast was the best **** ever. I love all the games, Sonic Adventure (Which i played for the longest time without a memory card) So every time I played it for long enough to play a different character or even the one time I actually finished it I was left in awe. There was crazy taxi and Jet Set Radio and well as Soul reaver and Sonic shuffle. **** was amazing.

I've never gotten a playstation because I really hate using the controller. The dualshock looks nice but it's much too small for my hands. The XBox controller fits much more snugly in my mitts. (Also the dreamcast's giant controller.)

I also dislike the placement of the thumbsticks. The consoles are always decent but the controller just feels too light and awkward for me to enjoy playing with it.

you are right the ps3 and such controlers suck do they honestly think only kids and midgets play it? I wish sony would just make a contoler i can use... that is why i got a 360 and cost 200$ less. who needs blue ray when you don't have an HDTV

Aye, and it's also why I'm going for the XBoner. Now that the horrible policies have been dropped it's just down to the personal preference in games, companies and aesthetics and personally I prefer the XBoner setup thusfar. I'm still gonna call it the XBoner but I can't stand the thought of using those thumbsticks...

Also, the setup looks a lot more like facebook than a game's console from that new video. I'm all for social-ness but it seems cluttered and hap-hazard.

I remember playing Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast. No game will ever replace it; I still remember the moment I defeated Chaos at the end...

might be because your pc is too new/good for the old games. Go find an old pc or see if you can run it in konfigurated mode (run as windows 98 or something like that)

you could try to rightclick the games icon and go to preferences and from there force it to run with an older windows system

Wow, dude. That sucks... Fur Fighters is one of the best games I've ever played. Fantastic humour, great gameplay. Good mix of shooting and platforming and puzzle solving.

A tad easy but it really bites that Fur Fighters didn't stick. I LOVE the game so god-damn much!

That's probably Lower East Quack. New Quack City has some great and memorable levels, but then again, so does every hub in the game.

I highly suggest you seek out a copy that does work or maybe get Viggo's Revenge for the PS2. The Cell-Shaded graphics are a real detriment to the style of the game in my opinion but at least you'd be able to play it.

Well i had the Jaguar 64, i loved it as a kid.

Turns out it was the laughing stock of all video game consoles.

Don't feel bad. You have every right to find joy in anything you can. Personally.. I think Philips CDi was the worst console.. but.. yeah.

And I just realised I put a 6 rather than an 8.

That's what I get for posting after midnight...
