Dreamcast game look A LOT better than PS1 or N64 games, a lot of games which were released on both PS2 and Dreamcast looked a bit better on the Dreamcast (Dead or Alive 2, Grandia 2 for example). There's a good Dreamcast emulator available, NullDC, try running Shenmue 1 or 2 and you'll see what the Dreamcast was capable off, Shenmue was released in 99 and looked better than anything else on consoles, and I can't remember any PC game looking as good either.
why did sega stop making consoles anyways they were always decent i thinks???
The Saturn wasn't selling well at all in Europe and the US and only sold decently in Japan, that was after the failure of the 32X too, the Dreamcast was the last chance for Sega and it failed in Japan, sold quite well in the US though until the PS2 was released, that console was the most overhyped thing ever and didn't have a single good game until late in 2001 and basically killed any chance that Sega could survive as a console maker, piracy was also a huge issue on Dreamcast.Edited by Telimektar - 1/8/12 at 9:10pm
