At least, I think you did if you opened this thread. I hope my parents haven't chucked mine out; it should be appreciating in dust (if not worth) in their attic somewhere.
Thought about some of the good times I had with it though; Soul Reaver (so many hours of back and forth looking for that one newly acceptable area), House of the Dead 2 (+ beer and two player - hiyo!), Shenmue/Shenmue II (so very detailed) and, of course, Sonic Adventures (argh! Epilepsy!!).
Sega's console may be gone, but it shouldn't be forgotten. Got any Dreamcast memories to share?

I played Resi Evil 2 on Dreamcast, from start to finish, in one sitting and on my first attempt....and there was no VMU to use, so I couldn't save. Took 6 hours and was the most thrilling game experience I've ever had. A Survival Horror is 100 times more frightening when you know death means you have to start all over again Very Happy

Also: Skies of Arcadia is my all time fave RPG.

6 hours? following a guide or you just zoom past everything?

I remember playing Seaman with the microphone aha. We would cheat and change the system's clock ahead so that it would grow faster. I think our Dreamcast got ruined when our basement flooded. It's probably the only system I've owned and no longer have. I've done a good job of saving all the others including a PS1 that has to be duct taped together to work.

No; I was just really cautious when moving forward, and back-tracked if I needed health.
Had next to no ammo by the end. I'm amazed I finished it.

I had to make my housemates play REvolt for HOURS to make multiplayer entertaining. Still not sure if they've forgiven me for it (I was practically pushing them back into the sofa every time someone tried to escape), but I sure enjoyed it. The best/most frustrating racer ever!!

MDK2 - only played the demo at a friend's house, but we played it over and over and over and over again.
