Years Since the Release of the Dreamcast in North America

Sega's Dreamcast has a special place in the hearts of many as a console a bit ahead of its time. For me, it was a gateway into the world of addictive, zany Japanese games. I played everything from Jet Grind Radio and Samba de Amigo to Space Channel 5 and Rez.


What about you? Did you ever have a Dreamcast? What were some of your favorite memories with the system?

Not a bad console at all but I'll be damned if it isn't the most grossly overrated videogame console of all time judging from the amount of people who go "BEST CONSOLE EVAH!" everytime someone mentions the DC. There are no reasonable arguments to name it the best there has ever been.

Now maybe the best Sega ever produced? That I could get behind.
