Last weekend while retro game hunting, I made another great console find! It's one of the less commercially successful consoles, which is a shame, because it's got some jaw-droppingly amazing games. Any guess at what it is?
I think this was a pretty easy one to figure out - the Sega Dreamcast! It was initially very successful, but the release of the PlayStation 2 drove it into the shadows and ultimately led to its demise.
It was in fantastic condition so I couldn't pass it up. After purchasing it, I was surprised to run into TWO more Dreamcasts while hitting my other thrift stores. Luckily, the one I picked up initially was the most complete and in the best condition of all three. This means I'm finally nearing the point of having all the consoles I want. Just need to find myself a Sega Genesis and a Japanese Super Famicom and I'll be quite the happy camper.
And as an unexpected bonus, there was a copy of Ms. Pac Man in the console! Good thing, too, because I have yet to actually find one single Dreamcast game in all my thrifting expeditions. So many good games I need to find now - Power Stone, Sonic Adventure, Shenmue...the list goes on and on.
