Here is a nice video review of the Sega Dreamcast by RetroCore.  The video reviews the console and quite a few games.

I like the bus driving game. Godzilla looks great. Always a big Sega fan and really enjoy the system but after the Saturn debacle it was hard to be enthusiastic when it first launched.

From what I've read, the Godzilla games doesn't play very well.  In fact, seems that no Godzilla game has been good on any system!  Do you know of a good one?

 ;D I had Godzilla for the NES. Taken for the time period, Godzilla was not a bad game. Think there were two NES Godzilla games. Being a fan like myself makes me tend to overlook the rough parts of a bad Godzilla game.

Can you tell I love Godzilla. I mentioned the name Godzilla a few times.  :)

LOL!

All this Godzilla talk makes me want to play the DreamCast. May not be a Godzilla game but there are plenty of titles to choose. Ok maybe I do not own that many but it is still worth enjoying. Yes, I do like Godzilla.

:)  I may now look for that Godzilla game just out of curiosity.  I would imagine it is not an expensive one to get for the DC!

Kinda odd to see a licensed port after all these years but still pretty cool. I have the original for NGCD and it's a good fighting game.

This thread hasn't seen action in some time. Figured I'd wake it up with this video from Top Hat Gaming Man looking at the Dreamcast and whether it is worth playing in 2018...

The homebrew scene alone makes it good. I'd get an early model DC as you can play burned games with em hehe~

Also the amount of quality was really good on the DC.

The DC is an awesome console.  I only got it a few years ago and it is unfortunately that Sega did not continue making hardware because you have to wonder where they would have been today.

I'd say they'd ended up in a similar position to Nintendo except being more lax about things and in general less screws loose.
