Yeah, it's not current gen, but it was just 47 years ahead of its time. it was like the Orson Welles or Ernest Hemingway of consoles. It should be honoured...

Couldn't agree more I'm dissapointed at the lack of GBs Dreamcast support

Dude, saying the Dreamcast is the Wells of gaming is a disservice to Orson.

Why would "overrated, dead console" be an alignment option?

EDIT:

Oh wait, you said "dreamcast", not "overrated, dead console". Boy do I feel silly. ^_^

Agreed. The jaguar had a cool name. I half-expected it to roar when I turned it on.

The Dreamcast is still thinking? Fuck, dude! That IS an advanced console! Not even these current gen motherfuckers have a thought process.

well, I'm guessing a good "Arcade" alignment would do well?

I'd have to agree with you, sir. Too bad most people aligning with that would keep blogging about how it is a great console and how it would have succeeded if SEGA had not gone down the drain...

I think later, as GB develops, they should include something in our profiles along the lines of "Alignment History"...what say you all?
That way we can stake our claim for the generations/console wars of  past.

Wow nice to see some ignorant fanboys, very few consoles have ever garnered such a fantastic library in two years. That is undeniable. I could make a list of great games (of which I do have a list of recommendations to new owners) or go on about how on paper Dreamcast is more powerful than PS2 (which I have a blog about over on 1up) and we never saw it's true potential, but chances are you'd all be too slow to understand it if you have not caught on to Dreamcast being regarded as a true hardcore gamer console already.

Nevermind the fact that it introduced the first full fledged unified On-line service to consoles, and the first MMORPG to consoles, or popularized pressure sensitive buttons. Maybe it's Virtual console-like service called Dream library for TG 16 and Genesis available in japan. Or it's amazing fighting game and SHMUP library. Foolish, foolish trolls.

Edit: Hello Lou, nice to see another 1upper here

I am playing Shenmue as I type this post. It still shouldn't be an alignment though, as much as I adore the console.

While it might be silly to have it as an alignment, it's a good opportunity to rant about Sega and Dreamcastocity.

Right, but other than Nintendo what other video game company manufactured first party consoles for 20 years or more? SEGA.
