Ladies and gentlemen, we here at videolamer pride ourselves on our knowledge and coverage of both current gaming trends and the very best in classic gaming. However, everyone makes mistakes sometimes, and one piece of gaming history has gone unnoticed by us for far too long. Of course I am talking about the Sega Dreamcast.
Almost a decade after its release, the Dreamcast still astounds new comers and old fans alike with its incredible library and fresh ideas. While the three console race of Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft is now ingrained in our minds and memories, we must never forget just how much the Dreamcast brought to the table, as well as how much more it could have done given a little more time. In a time where some gamers bemoan a lack of innovation and creativity, I cannot think of a better remedy than a Dreamcast and a hearty stack of its best titles.
So without further ado, I will be spearheading an effort to remember the little console that almost could, with a few weeks of Dreamcast reviews, discussions and retrospectives. I will be kicking it off tomorrow with an introductory article, and will continue later in the week with the first in a series of articles titled “What Did We Miss?” During this time, I also encourage you all to share your comments, and please recommend any games or topics you have an interest in.
Let’s get this party started, Sega style.
