After reading the sonic is now lame thread, i went to moms house and dug through the closests, trying to find my genesis and super nintendo,so i could replay sonic 2 to see if it's still fun, and so i could play final fantasy 3 again.
Couldn't find the genesis, but i did find my brothers Dreamcast. Dreamcast was the first failed system my family ever owned(We had one of the ataris though...but that was pre nintendo so i'm not counting it,as i was like 1.) It sold great when it came out, the graphics look better then psone and n64, it had some really good games, and it sold wonderful at launch.
So i can say i was shocked at it's failure, it didn't make the mistakes of the Sega cd or 32x (IE, being a fairly useless addon that really added nothing) It was, unlike the saturn, designed for 3d games, which were hitting their stride att he time, it just kinda flopped, due mainly to the ps2 (i beleive that was the case at least).
But ps2 also trumped gamecube, and it didn't go anywhere.
So, anyone else have a negative surprise? Maybe surprised that no one played System Shock 2?
