Why these games?

#1 Posted by flufflogic (321 posts) -

I'm confused. With the mass of fantastic Dreamcast games, why waste a disc on these? 
 
I mean, I understand not putting, say, Shenmue on there; after all, put both on a single collection for full price, it'll sell. But why not, say, Jet Set Radio? Daytona USA? Metropolis Street Racer? Any of a number of good Sega published DC games? 
 
It makes no sense to put these 4 there, as frankly I don't know why anyone would want those particular 4.

Where the fuck is my Skies of Arcadia?

They're all games that have been rereleased on the PC and are easy to convert. 
I agree though, an absolute waste of a disc..  It's going to sell poorly and they're never going to make another one. 
 
Casual fans aren't going to care about "classic games" and people who might have bought something like this have been turned off by them releasing utter crap for a quick buck.  It's a guaranteed flop.  I really have to question what monkey's they have incharge there over at Sega.

Kinda fitting isn't it?

I would kill for being able to play Jet Set Radio again.

Theye have all been ported one way or another as WinterSnowBlind said. 
 
If they were going to add other games like ChuChu and Shenmue they would need the time and money to convert these but why would they use up such and time and money which is being used for more crappy Sonic sequels.

Jet Set Radio was a fantastic game, I bought a Dreamcast just to play that game. Not sure if I would buy it now though.

I'm curious to know if the version of Crazy Taxi included will be the original version or the later version with the music and ads removed.

I'd buy it at a high price if it was an HD remake

Because releasing a bunch of shit they've already released elsewhere on new hardware is easier than porting other, better games to newer hardware.

So true, its bloody worth it.

My bet is that they're saving some games for another disc.

@Hailinel:  Due to licensing, I bet it'll be the stripped version.
 
I really don't get why SEGA thinks people want to play Sonic Adventure. It was a bad game when it came out and its even worse now.

It makes more sense to include in a collection like this than a bass fishing game, honestly.

Because this is Sega, and they have no shame.

Sonic Adventure's a great game - when it's not the PC port. I mean, I believe the DC original had widescreen support... The sequel was better though, and that's the one that needs the port.

Every day I am more convinced that Sega is full of the most retarded team of developers in the entire industry.

Not close enough though. My GC stopped working ages ago, and I don't have a Wii, so a HD remake would be pretty sweet.

Can't say I disagree with this statement.

I'm in full belief this will be the one and only Dreamcast collection. There's no other converted to PC Dreamcast games. 'Sides, I wanna play Bass Fishing, I got a DC with a fishing rod controller. Great way to play.
