Quote from: Kiwi on Apr 17, 2023, 05:07 PMI have bought five Dreamcasts over the years because the arcade ports of Crazy Taxi and Powerstone were fabulous. House of the Dead 2 ranks right up there when paired with the consoles light gun and I saw nothing on the PS2 that came close to the visual fidelity of the Dreamcast. The VGA adapter capability of the Dreamcast at the time was amazing. The subsequent PS2 conversion of Crazy Taxi after Sega went software only was an abomination with missing music and awful visuals.Nintendo proved you can make a console work with eclectic hardware if you have the games to support it. People flocked to the PS2 simply because Sony went with a DVD drive , making it by far the cheapest option to play movies at the time when the prices of standalone DVD players were ridiculously high. I went with the PS2 because of that very reason but if Sega had provided DVD playback support on the Dreamcast I would've stayed with that console. I can't begin to describe how disappointed I was with the PS2.
