The Dreamcast, SEGA's final attempt to salvage their poor performance in the previous console gen. The Dreamcast was revolutionary back in the day being the first console to offer online capabilties yet SEGA mismanaged this console as well, bringing its discontinuation in 2001, barely 3 years after its launch.Selling barely over 9 million units, two million short of the safety mark, the Dreamcast was the first 6th gen console to leave the market. Despite its short life-span, the Dreamcast is home to many classic - must play games. The Dreamcast is the home of the arcade,of multiplayer fun and hidden gems. Many of its titles have been ported to other consoles yet very few of those ports are actually better than the Dreamcast ones: Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, and Grandia II come to mind.

So what's so great about a console that ultimately failed? Why should I bother getting one? Any gamer should keep an open mind to consoles they haven't tried and the Dreamcast not only packs a punch, it has a few surprises up its sleeve. If one wants shmups, look no further as the Dreamcast houses many must-have titles like Gunbird 2, Ikaruga, Mars Matrix and Twinkle Star Sprites. The Dreamcast also has its fair share of horror games, Resident Evil: Code Veronica, D2, Illbleed and Blue-Stinger just to name a few. Likewise, its library holds some rather experimental and outright bizarre games like Seaman, Rez and Segaga. To this day the Dreamcast is still seeing releases in the form of its very active homebrew community. Games like Gunlord, Volgarr the Viking and Pier Solar and the Great Architects, and we're not even touching on the Dreamcast's arcade fun: Dynamite Cop, Hydrothunder, Zombie Revenge, Crazy Taxi, Cannon-Spike and ChuChu Rocket. Ultimately, this console, much like the Saturn, was forgotten among its rivals due to some of SEGA's baffling decisions, don't let their mistakes withold your fun.

Another forte for the Dreamcast. Its selection of shmups is more than satisfactory with titles like: Bangai-O, Cannon Spike, Mars Matrix, Ikaruga, and Shikigami no Shiro II just to name a few. Again, I'd...

The Dreamcast has VGA support allowing one to play games in 480p (I believe it was the first console to support this, don't quote me on it though). The image is crisp and clear and only 20 or so games...

The controller is rather lackluster when compared to its predecessor, the Saturn controller. The Dreamcast controllers have decent triggers, a rather flimsy analog stick and a pretty bad D-pad. The buttons...

The Dreamcast, apart from the Saturn, is probably the best console when it comes to arcade games. If one wants quick. fun and addictive gameplay one should look no further. The ports are excellent 1:1...

The Dreamcast is one of the few consoles that doesn't have any anti-piracy measures (only a small percentage of model 2 Dreamcasts) making it a great console to use back-ups for, that way you won't have...
