    I always love it when i comment system decides to put replies just wherever. It makes things more exciting.

    Dreamcast is my favourite console of all time!

    I really hope the Vita can save itself.

    The thing I loved the most about the Dreamcast was its unique feeling when turning it on - it was so arcady and polished that it truly felt Next-Gen. Crazy Taxi introduced me to Bad Religion, Phantasy Star Online was my first online experience and GrandiaII/SoA will always rink high among my favoutite JRpgs. Shenmue caused my friends to drop their jaws and Sonic Adventure 2 still has the best rocking soundtrack out there =) I also loved the controller, until today I advance the view that Soul Calibur never played better than back in the 99s. So many great memories...Dreamcast, you are awesome

    The Dreamcast was the 1st console I bought with my money. It holds a special place in my heart. Such an awesome system, it's a shame that it had to go so quickly.

    The 3DO was the most shameful failure of all consoles. The thing was literally from the future.

    Too soon to add Vita or WiiU?

    I didn't have a problem with the Dreamcast controller aside from the d-pad. It was a real step back considering how revered the Saturn's d-pad was. The VMU never proved it's worth, but other than a lousy beep when you powered up (assuming you never bothered to replace the batteries like me) it didn't affect me negatively. The controller mold felt alright, the analog stick was responsive, and it ushered in the tight springy shoulder triggers that Microsoft has aped ever since. I just wish Sega had the foresight to realize the importance of having two analog sticks, especially since the Dualshock had already been out for a while. I see that as one of the DC's biggest shortcomings and a contributing factor in it's obsoletion.

    If it weren't for the Dreamcast, I probably wouldn't be interested in video games as much as I am now. Granted, I did play a lot of Sonic the Hedgehog on the Genesis but the with Dreamcast I began to broaden the types of video games I play ( mainly fighting games and RPGs with Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Plasma Sword and Grandia II). Unfortunately I got my Dreamcast near the end of its lifetime so I didn't have too many games for it and soon made the switch to the PS2.

    Ah the Dreamcast, so many good memories. So much time spent playing great games with friends. It spawned one of my favorite games ever in Jet Set Radio, while introducing me to JRPGS with Grandia II. The Sega Dreamcast will always resonate well with me.
  • jedisamurai - August 19, 2013 7:17 p.m.

    And even if you no longer own one, at least you can play both Jet Set Radio games on an Xbox 360!

    Poor Dreamcast. But missed Atari Jaguar, I know I doesn't have a great games, but the name and the logo was viewthful!
  • Pruman - August 19, 2013 4:29 p.m.

    I never owned a Dreamcast because I could never really get into Sega's games. Don't get me wrong, I like them, but I bled gray and purple in the First Console War, and I've been that way ever since. :) Also, at the time, I was eagerly anticipating Final Fantasy VIII. Had I known then what a disaster that game would turn out to be, I would have bought a Dreamcast instead.

    My OCD is killing me on the Dreamcast picture. Using the European Controller (Blue Swirl) with a North American Dreamcast (Red Swirl). I know it works but still bugs me.

    Nice list. If this had an hypothetical eighth spot I would have the Virtual Boy on there. Yes, everybody knows it was a complete and utter failure in on itself, but it definitely was just a case of the tech not really being quite there at the time it was conceived. The fact that Nintendo later attempted to recreate the "3D" idea first in GameCube prototypes and then finally (and successfully) with the 3DS at least proves the device has some sort of legacy. But yeah, as a console itself...good idea, just handled fairly horribly.

    I remember me and my brother getting a dreamcast for Christmas, but it was stolen two days after. Totally ruined Christmas for me :(
  • Swedish_Chef - August 19, 2013 1:14 p.m.

    Just checking to make sure the Dreamcast made it on here... #1. Good.
  • EAC73 - August 19, 2013 1:03 p.m.

    Enjoyed the list, but I think the Gizmondo deserves a mention for how much it tried to do at the time.
  • danielcourtney - August 19, 2013 12:38 p.m.

    Dreamcast, what a system... Nothing wrong with it, fantastic in every way, just .. PS2 was better... in every way.
  • jedisamurai - August 19, 2013 1:24 p.m.

    Actually, you have it reversed. The PS2 was worse in every way except one. Marketing. Worse graphics, worse controller, worse price, worse games, worse company, worse experience. If only things had gone the other way and SONY had had a flop in the PS2, things would have been so much better.
