Dreamcast Attention Heating Up on Wii

"There seems to be a resurgence of interest in our beloved console of late, largely due to it's most comparable current gen system, the Wii. Sega are currently referencing some of it's finest Dreamcast games in new releases or actual straight ports of it's back catalogue."

But i will for one say to all those people that say it was the best console ever.... You sir are an idiot. It had internet, Shenmue, NFL 2K1, Grandia, Marvel vs. Capcom (my personal favorites of all Dreamcast games), and a few more greats for sure. But all that said, This stupid notion that it was the best drives me crazy. If it was great than the PS1 and the 64(both last gen consoles for the time) wouldn't of destroyed them, and when the PS2 dropped it was all over for the console.

You know what it is. Its an example of a console that just couldn't make enough good games. YES there were great games but there was so much crap on it, believe me i had one.

So what will the Dreamcast be known for in the end? Its few classics and the internet capabilities, and maybe the motion control (i never used it). Maybe thats all it should be known for.

Who the hell cares if someone says in their opinion it's the best. Hey, guess what? I consider it tied with PS1 for the best console of all time as well. Are you going to take away my bubbles and ignore me now because I don't have the same opinion as you? If you honestly feel the need to do that, please go ahead. I could care less.

Dreamcast had a huge list of great games, one of which *Skies of Arcadia* I still regard as the best game ever made, TO DATE. It had much more great games than xbox 1 did, and I might even go as far to say that it had the same amount of good games that the 360 has right now. IN MY OPINION! Let's not forget that part... it's all perspective... the entire god damn console war is all opinion.

Not to mention as they said in this article, they pioneered a lot of technology in how you play a game, that unfortunately, was never really noticed here in the states. Dreamcast had the first music game that came with a controller that emulated an instrument. It wasn't playstation, with Guitar Hero 1. Add on the fact that it was naturally a console meant for emulating other consoles on, so it is still the dream console of emulators.

So yes, I believe it was a great console. One that died far before it's time. Hell I still wish consoles would bring back a form of the VMU... imagine a screen built into the controller that you could play mini games on, even when the console was turned off. GENIUS!

edit- "So what will the Dreamcast be known for in the end? Its few classics and the internet capabilities, and maybe the motion control (i never used it). Maybe thats all it should be known for."

I have to ask, what the hell do you believe the current consoles are going to be known for? Xbox will be known for it's online capabilities, Wii will be known for motion control and Playstation will probably be known for it's classics. I think Dreamcast came on top, since it's known for all three of those.

He, like you, was simply expressing his opinion, nothing more.

I agree with Relcom for the most part, and gave him bubbles for a well-written comment. I also gave you bubbles for your comment, because you obviously put a lot of thought into your comment, but I still think you should lighten up.

I do believe that the Dreamcast was nothing short of revolutionary, and I'm grateful for what it's done to define the way we play games, but I wouldn't call it the best console ever.

I guess my opinion's halfway between yours and Relcom's, to put it bluntly.

B Man3559d ago

if he hadn't said "But i will for one say to all those people that say it was the best console ever.... You sir are an idiot."

That's not exactly the start to an intellectual post, now is it? I stand by my comment.

But thanks for the bubble, I do appreciate it. :)

myxomatosis3558d ago

... first he says " who the hell cares if someones says in their opinion it's the best?" and then types 300 plus words about gis opinions of it being " the best "? Silly boy! form your ideolgy on the relevence of opinion first, then come back! :)

you stupid little idiot.

B Man3558d ago

I wanted to explain why I personally like it so much. But to care about someone liking or disliking a console enough to call them an idiot for it? That's what I was getting at.

Moron.

Plus the controller was ridiculous.

LJWooly3559d ago

I agree with you for the most part, but it still beat the controller on the original Xbox.

Amnesiac3559d ago
