Reliving the Dream: The Launch and History

It was 1999 and people were smacktab in the middle of the Attitude Era of wrestling. On the very same day the Dreamcast launched, WWE launched it's Smackdown product, with a special on UPN. Like Smackdown did to the WWF / WWE world, the Dreamcast disrupted gaming's cliches and constants. Think of it, like the Nintendo Wii of the late 90's Early 2K era. The Dreamcast had one of the best launches in video game history.

Dreamcast holds some moments that will never be reproducable in any future gaming console. :(

The Dreamcast was and still is one of the greatest consoles of all time. It was a fighting game and shmup gamers paradise. It was a sad day in the industry when Sega dropped out of the hardware business.

Skies of Arcadia was a great RPG. I am still waiting for a sequel to Shenmue. Sadly. it will most likely never happen. :(

I still play Dreamcast to this day, it really has some great games across all genres.


So true. For instance Shenmue 1/2, and Power Stone. Two franchises SEGA NEEDS to resurrect. I still play Dreamcast to this day, and even today some of these games are above and beyond anything out.

Man, i loved my dreamcast so much at the time. Its still my favourite console. I still hold a soft spot for it, like an old girlfriend you realise you still have feelings for when you bump into her once in a blue moon.

DC owned the everloving sh1t out of the PS2.

Of course, this is not anything about which your average Sony slave would know.

Poor n00bs.

That is why it failed and the PS2 is the most successful platform in history.

You're so sad.

it was a part of the greatest summer of my life. nothing will ever come close to 1999. i moved from florida to california that summer. i made friends, met a new girl, and was 14. im 23 now, wishing i was as free as i was then. and still knew the people i did.

and wishing that the dream never ended...

Yeah that was probably the best time in gaming history for me. I was blown away by the dreamcast, it actually got me back into playing video games. I still play mine here and there. Might have to pull out fighting vipers 2 and rainbow cotton 3 for the dreamcast.
