9/9/99 – The day Sega’s final console launched in the United States. I didn’t pick it up on that day. I actually picked it up after Sega discontinued support for it and after hefty price cuts.
It was a fantastic console. So many great games! Here’s a sample of the Dreamcast library via ScrewAttack’s Top 10 list:
They’ve already mentioned some great titles, but there’s just so much more! Don’t forget about Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram, Dead or Alive 2, Capcom vs SNK 2 and Chu Chu Rocket. For such a short lived piece of hardware, there was a ridiculous amount of quality titles for it.
For those of you who wish to learn more about the Dreamcast’s short life, head over to Jeremy Parish’s fine memorial post about it. It’s such a sad story. As for me, I’m going to play some Dreamcast games for old time’s sake.
P.S – Even Peter Moore himself blogged about the Dreamcast!
