Giant Bomb looks back on the Dreamcast 20 years (!) later.

They're using a modded Dreamcast that outputs via HDMI and runs off an SD card, and it's a pretty fantastic thing.

The Dreamcast was such a bizarre console. It has a small group of classics that everyone remembers, but it also had a fair chunk of utter, utter shit. It had a life of about 2 years and killed off Sega as a hardware manufacturer. But it's still beloved.

As s bit of trivia, Sega has now been out of the hardware industry longer than they were in it.

I had a dreamcast, don't remember much about it except for a tennis game me and my brother used to spend hours on!

I don't remember it being called Virtua Tennis but I do remember having to knock down pins so it must be the same one! :)

Wasn't that Smash Court Tennis?

No, no... You are right, because I'm sure Virtua Tennis is the one I have on my Vita.

SCT was so much fun, I had it on a demo disk and played it to death till I could afford it, and when I had the money I bought Broken Sword 2 instead 😂

Anybody remember Nightmare Creatures? I loved that game.

I remember the joys of absolutely rinsing the demo disc instead of buying the game.

Tony Hawks Pro Skater when it was just the warehouse level I think and possibly a time limit, played that to death. Also Dave Mirras BMX which was also only one level, me and a mate found out you could glitch the game by doing certain things so it just became who could perform the biggest glitch, ah those were the days.

Demo disks were my life! Do you remember the indie games on the disks? They were sometimes quite good!

Net Yaroze 👍

I don't sorry, but in relation to that, the ice hockey game Blades of Steel on the NES is an absolute classic.

I remember the "BLADES OF STEEL" sound, but was this also the game that had fighting? Seem to remember a hockey game we played that included fighting.

Other Nintendo 8bit games that were a total laugh I'd like to add Simon Quest, Castlevania and Iceclimber. I loved that stuff.

Crazy that even the Wii had N64 titles on the virtual console but not a single one on the Switch yet. 

I'd love to play all the miscellaneous games I never played yet and don't really want to spend the money on. I have all the heavy hitters for my N64 but games like Yoshi's Story, Paper Mario etc I'm not super interested in. If I had them all consolidated on 1 console (no pun intended) that would be sweet.

I think its surprising that given their success the classic consoles don't have some sort of ability built in for expansion

if Nintendo were now lining up a 2nd wave of games for say £50 they'd get some takers

I need to try and get a way of playing ghoul patrol
