Six Games and Consoles that Were Ahead of their Time

GameDynamo - "Sometimes, you can set your sights a little too high. Sometimes, you can go a little too far. Sure, your brilliant concept and original design might set you light-years ahead of the competition… but that might not necessarily be a good thing. Sometimes, being too revolutionary is just as bad as not being revolutionary enough. " (Dreamcast, Industry, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, PC, Retro, Sega, Shenmue, Virtual Boy)

The Dreamcast was so ahead of It's time. The 2nd Xbox console had a pad that was pretty damn similiar to It. and It took the xbox 360 pretty much a decade to let everyone access a web browser like the dreamcast did

"It took the xbox 360 pretty much a decade to let everyone access a web browser..."

That was an MS decision, it had nothing to do with the 360 not being capable.

I completely agree! I remember going to my friends house right after he purchased a Dreamcast and being completely blown away by the graphics,online capabilities and that awesome controller(he even had a fishing game with a fishing rod type controller which I thought was just nuts!)As an avid Nintendo supporter I would have no problem buying a new Sega console to sit proudly next to my WiiU..man I miss those days-please Sega get back into the hardware business!

To me it was more of an extension of the Dreamcast because they were similar and games like Sega GT 2002, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Otogi, etc would've been on the DC if not for it's early death. I think the Xbox 360 is the "Dreamcast 2" or spiritual successor to the Dreamcast.

Such an awesome era in gaming. I had that on the 3D0, but we were starting to see some original stuff at that time. Oh, to go back...

Sega in general were always ahead of their time. Remember Sega TV where you could actually stream some games from their service.

The Dreamcast was heaven sent and if it wasn't for that damn Saturn, Sega would probably still be around today in the console wars.

I almost quit gameing all together when the Dreamcast died.( I was a big time sega fanboy in my youth) But then I played Grand theft auto 3 on my cousins ps2 and continued on with my addiction buying petty much every console since. I still play my Saturn and dreamcast from time to time to show my kids what games looked like in the "old days'.

Resident Evil Outbreak. It sold good on Playstation 2 but the console wasn't as online centric as the Xbox which still made me think if the title would have fared much better on a different system.

The online gaming community has grown quite large since last generation so if Capcom released this instead of putting online in the main series I would buy it honestly.....
