    Default Dreamcast survey... it's thinking.

    The Dreamcast turned nine years old today, and I thought it'd be a cool idea to celebrate with a survey.

    The questions:
    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    When did you get your DC?
    What made you decide to get a DC?
    What was the first DC game you played?
    What was the first DC game you owned?
    How many controllers do you have?

    What are your favorite DC games?
    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    What's your favorite DC find?
    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    How often do you play your DC?
    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    ____________________________________________

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    18. The most recent addition is Blue Stinger.

    When did you get your first DC?

    I bought a white DC in September 2007 for $20, which is the first one I've ever had.

    What made you decide to get a DC?

    While I had some interest in the DC, I never thought too much about adding one to the collection until 2007. A few months before I got my DC, a friend of mine included Crazy Taxi 2 as a bonus in a trade we had made. Then, after getting a new copy of Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX for a quarter at an FYE in August, I knew it was time.

    What was the first DC game you played?
    Crazy Taxi, at a friend's house during the system's heyday. A few months later, he offered to sell me his system and the game for $40, but I didn't have the money at the time.

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    Crazy Taxi 2.

    How many controllers do you have?
    Three (all first party - two white, and one blue). I'll eventually get a fourth.

    What are your favorite DC games?
    Crazy Taxi 1 and 2, 4x4 Evolution, Bangai-O, Ikaruga, Hydro Thunder, Soul Calibur, 18 Wheeler, and Chu Chu Rocket.

    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Sno Cross Championship Racing. I liked the track editor, but poor controls ruined the rest of the game.

    What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    I haven't played that much multiplayer yet, but so far, I like Soul Calibur and Gauntlet Legends.

    What's your favorite DC find?
    Getting StarLancer for a quarter was cool, even if it's missing the back insert.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    Crazy Taxi 2.

    How often do you play your DC?
    Unfortunately, it isn't hooked up at the moment. It's been a few months.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Staying up late and playing Crazy Taxi 2 after I got my DC.

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    A whopping 5 games.

    When did you get your DC?
    Only about 3 years ago.

    What made you decide to get a DC?
    Needed it for my SEGA line.

    What was the first DC game you played?
    Sonic Adventure

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    Sonic Shuffle and NFL 2K1 came with it.

    How many controllers do you have?
    One official, one madcatz.

    What are your favorite DC games?
    Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi - I haven't played much.

    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Never played it, but NFL 2K1 for a couple of reasons: 1. I hate sports games. 2. I see infinitely more copies of this game at used game stores than SMB/Duckhunt - nobody wants it.

    What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    Dunno.

    What's your favorite DC find?
    The DC itself - friend's neighbor had just moved in and found some extra junk still at the house, sold my friend the DC in a nice carrying bag for a penny and then the friend gave it to me.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    Sonic Adventure

    How often do you play your DC?
    Almost never.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Might be a little inappropriate, but the first time I ever got high I played the Sonic Adventure demo on the Generator Vol. 2 disc and when I got to the part where the whale chases Sonic, my jaw just dropped and I stared at the screen like a young boy seeing a nude woman for the first time.

    Playing Power Stone on Japanese Import. Still one of my favorite games to this day.

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    Not entirely sure, Sonic Adventure iirc.

    Still have a couple of pads kicking around, but my main one is part of the JAMMAcast. I used to have Twin Sticks, Arcade Stick, Wheels, Rods etc...

    Under Defeat
    Marvel vs Capcom 2
    Power Stones 1 & 2
    Radilgy

    Propeller Arena
    etc, etc.... the list goes on.

    I read reviews....

    Regularly, as long as I'm not playing Last Blade or Garou.

    Playing through Skies of Arcadia when I was still living at my Parents' and didn't have a care in the world....

    Great idea, here's my answers-- I love this system!!!

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    Currently my collection is at 25

    When did you get your DC?
    I believe it was around 2001 or 2002, when the Dreamcast was essentially dead. Various places were clearing out brand-new systems at around $50! I knew I couldn't miss this opportunity so--not having enough money at the time--asked my parents to get me one for Christmas. And they delivered

    What made you decide to get a DC?
    The price + the graphics. There was no better value at the time. Also, I really liked the strong Japanese influence on the system (more on that later).

    What was the first DC game you played?
    I think the first game I actually played might have been Crazy Taxi or Ready 2 Rumble at a friends house.

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    I think I bought two--Sonic Adventure and Jet Grind Radio

    How many controllers do you have?
    Four--all official (white, skeleton blue, and two recently acquired skeleton greys)

    What are your favorite DC games?
    Sonic Adventure, Shenmue, Jet Grind Radio, and Crazy Taxi 2. Bangai-O gets an honorable mention for sure though.

    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Haha--well just recently I got that Dave Mirra BMX game mentioned awhile back, and I thought the physics and controls were terrible. I actually like those types of games--having played plenty of Tony Hawk 2 on the Playstation--but this was really bad. Maybe I just don't remember how poor those games controlled, but I liked Matt Hoffman's version better.

    What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    Haven't played much multiplayer on the DC--not enough friends interested in it, and missed out on the whole PSO craze--but I've had some crazy 3-4 person Chu Chu Rocket battles.

    What's your favorite DC find?
    Hm, that's tough. In many ways I feel all my purchases for the DC have been "finds", even the system itself. Especially at the "beginning" (well, for me anyways), when you could walk into Gamestop (or EB or Babbages for that matter) and pick up a $50 brand new system, or a MINT copy of Jet Grind Radio, Bangai-O, or Fatal Fury Mark of Wolves for $15 (which I certainly did). It was the ultimate bargain system.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    Never got one for free! I've bought a few lots that the value of one game in them could pay off the rest (finding a disc-only Project Justice in one comes to mind), but I've never just got one without paying something.

    How often do you play your DC?
    Well, this summer, probably at the very least once a week, and more likely averaging about 3-4 times a week.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Definitely. One day I walked into the mall Gamestop (or it's previous incarnation)--I guess this would make me around 13 at the time, and set-up near the front of the store was a Dreamcast, with one of the clerks playing Sonic Adventure. Now mind you, this was well BEFORE the US launch, I want to say a good 4-5 months before--so you can imagine how mindblowing this was. I asked the clerk what it was--he said it was a Dreamcast, imported from Japan by another clerk, who decided to bring it in the store (yes, Gamestop was a different place back then). I was completely floored. SO FAST, SO BEAUTIFUL. I knew there was nothing like this out at the time--it completely obliterated the jaggy polygons of the Playstation--and was the most smooth, fluid thing I ever saw. It was like watching a movie. After a few mintues of me standing there oogling at the setup, the clerk asked if I wanted to give it a try. And I said NO. I'm not quite sure why I said that, I just knew, that I wanted to keep watching--everything was so perfect and amazing, I was still soaking it in--I didn't want to play it, no...I COULDN'T play it..not right now. So I just watched...watched the beautiful images of Sonic going around and around in the Wind level...watched the clerk use the strange controller which looked like a part of a ufo, navigating menus in equally cryptic Japanese...watched the smooth white console with it's little red light...I couldn't play it...it was very much beyond me. I walked out of that store on a high, I told my mom what I had just saw, but of course, she didn't understand--then again, I didn't quite either at the time, I just knew I had just experienced something amazing.
    Of course, I finally got to play it... but that memory is still very vivid in my mind, as the moment I exposed to something completely brand new.

    I got alot of my final needed games for my collection from Blackjax, right before he passed away. Not quite a favorite memory, but a cherised one, that makes me appreciate my collection even more.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast? - 30 original titles

    When did you get your DC? - 2003. Traded a Colecovision to another DP'er for it.

    What made you decide to get a DC? - Curiosity about what at the time was considered a "modern" system. Would I be able to get into modern games? The answer was mostly yes.

    What was the first DC game you played? - Power Stone 2 at a Gamestop kiosk. Didn't like it at the time because I was still on too much of an old school mindset.

    What was the first DC game you owned? - Sega GT Rally and Shenmue, which were included in the trade.

    How many controllers do you have? - Six (count `em) stock controllers: Two white ones, one each of red, green, blue and black, and all have extension cables and color-coordinated VMU's. Also two light pistols, keyboard, mouse and a Mad Catz steering wheel with pedals. DC is one system for which I really went all out in respect to peripherals.

    What are your favorite DC games? - Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Soul Calibur, Shenmue, Spirit of Speed 1937.

    What's the worst DC game you've played? - KISS Psycho Circus. That frame rate is inexcusable

    What are your favorite multiplayer games? - Soul Calibur and Gauntlet Legends.

    What's your favorite DC find? - Not one, but two, sealed copies of the Sonic Adventure 10th Anniversary CD package at a thrift for $3 apiece. Gave one away, though, but it was a good score at the time.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free? - Other than Shenmue, I'll say Ikaruga. It's really hard to play, but the graphics are absolutely stunning.

    How often do you play your DC? - Not as often as I used to, but it's still hooked up and ready go. More often these days I use it for NES/SNES emulation.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC? - I was having a really difficult time figuring out how to make working console emulation discs, as opposed to coasters. A very knowledgeable forum member was kind enough to PM me about it and explain what to do in clear, sensible terms. This memory is less about the "DC" than "DP", but I'm still grateful for the assistance.

    Well,
    How I got it. I saved for months for it and got 100$. That was the first time I saved that much money ever. I wanted my dreamcast badly. Then my report card came around and my parents went to see my teacher. I was sure I'd never get it... But when I got home.. there it was sitting in my basement waiting for me.

    78 original games. 56 US, 20 Japanese, and 2 UK. I may have a few burns around here too...

    When did you get your DC?

    About a week after launch. I missed out on getting one on launch day since I didn't pre-order and had to wait for a second shipment.

    What made you decide to get a DC?

    I became a huge fan of the Saturn after buying one on the cheap from Blockbuster. Once other rental stores in my area started dumping Saturn games I fell in love with Sega all over again. Plus I really wanted a home version of House Of The Dead 2.

    What was the first DC game you played?

    Sonic Adventure at a demo unit at Toys R Us.

    What was the first DC game you owned?

    Soul Calibur. It would have been Sonic Adventure but I got a defective copy and had to wait for a new batch to come in.

    How many controllers do you have?

    4 standard including a green millenium controller (oooohhhh!). I also have two import light guns, a Mad Catz light gun, Virtual On twinsticks, and I think there is a fishing controller around here somewhere.

    What are your favorite DC games?

    Virtual On, Shenmue, Soul Calibur, Rez, Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, House Of The Dead 2, Confidential Mission, Samba De Amigo, Phantasy Star Online...

    What's the worst DC game you've played?

    Slave Zero, Trickstyle...

    What are your favorite multiplayer games?

    Chu Chu Rocket, Puzzle Fighter, Typing Of The Dead, Soul Calibur, Phantasy Star Online....

    What's your favorite DC find?

    Marvel vs Capcom 2 for $5 at a pawn shop.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?

    I'm sure I got a bunch of games as gifts but I can't remember which at this point.

    How often do you play your DC?

    Not too often. But I got a VGA box to hook mine up to my HDTV last month and have been playing a lot of Virtual On lately.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?

    Bringing it home at showing my then girlfriend now wife Soul Calibur. "Cool intro but how does the gameplay look?", she asked. I think we played that game all weekend only taking breaks for food and snoo-snoo.

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    139 at current count



    When did you get your DC?
    First Christmas right after it debuted


    What made you decide to get a DC?

    I hadn't purchased a new console since the Genesis, and wanted one because I loved computer gaming at the time, but it was expensive to keep up during those early PC online games.

    What was the first DC game you played?
    Not sure - very vague, but probably Blue Stinger (I was really into Hexen, Doom, etc.)

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    Blue Stinger, Air Force Delta, Crazy Taxi, and Vigilante 8 were all very early for me.

    How many controllers do you have?
    Probably 10 or so due to picking up collections, but only 2 back in the day.

    What are your favorite DC games?
    Ms. Pac Man Maze Madness is unbelievably addicting, Blue Stinger was fun, Air Force Delta, and probably the most played game ever on my DC is Caesars Palace 2000. My wife and I used to play it all the time to get ready for our yearly trips to the Bellagio!

    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Kiss Psycho Circus only because I'm such a HUGE Kiss fan and it was a big disappointment in play quality.


    What are your favorite multiplayer games?

    Star Wars Demolition, Gauntlet Legends, Vigilante 8, and Caesars Palace

    What's your favorite DC find?
    Japanese "Hello Kitty" pink DC system in box. Complete except for the Pink VMU (anyone have one?)

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    Never got a free game.

    How often do you play your DC?
    I'm in a summer-long dry spell. Need to pull it out and play it tonight!


    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Some friends came over for dinner and we spent all night playing Sega Rally with the Madcatz wheel and pedals. We all took turns for hours and hours. Our kids had just been born and we put them down to sleep and got to enjoy some time just being "kidless" again and it was awesome!

    Yeah, when I beat Shenmue 2 and my mouth was hanging open for the last 45 minutes and then I cried because I knew deep down that a third will never be made.

    Today lots of DC topics are flying around various boards, but this one is the best I've seen. Good way to incorporate a survey, DS


    -How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    About 40


    -When did you get your DC?
    Around 2002 or 2003


    -What made you decide to get a DC?
    Actually it was sort of luck. I won the system for free on a Neo-Geo.com contest hosted by one poster. It involved an egg hunt online looking for clues to spell out the mystery word. I remember he even had me go to the Jurassic Park website to find one of the letters, lol. I even had a random NG member help me out on instant messaging, as he already had a DC and for whatever reasons thought it would be a hoot if the "resident Saturn expert" (as I was known back then) also had a Dreamcast. The mystery word ended up being "Gaiety" which basically means to be in "high spirits" or happy


    -What was the first DC game you played?
    God, what was it? I'm going to unofficially say.... Plasma Sword or Carrier


    -What was the first DC game you owned?
    The system came free bundled with EVO, Grandia II and Shenmue


    -How many controllers do you have?
    Just 1. Been meaning to buy another one but never ever got around to it


    -What are your favorite DC games?
    I haven't played a whole lot. I guess I don't really have any clear-cut favorites. I did enjoy Resident Evil 2 (before my save files crapped out on me). Also, I'm actually one of those folks who enjoyed Blue Stinger


    -What's the worst DC game you've played?
    JMO but probably Maken X. I liked it initially, but found it wasn't my cup of tea on repeated sessions


    -What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    Not that I have played it multi, but I'm sure PowerStone series if I did


    -What's your favorite DC find?
    Don't have a crazy good story I could tell you here unlike SNES/Saturn as I was always mostly a casual DC owner. Probably winning the system for free itself if you qualify that as a find.


    -What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    I'll say the system itself


    -How often do you play your DC?
    God, it's been a while. Not since RE2, which was probably late 2005 (or 06?) maybe...


    -Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Winning the system for free for sure, and also, during '04 I had my mini DC craze run there. I slept over at my then-GF's apartment probably 4 to 5 days out of the week (her APT was also a short block or two from University campus) and I left some DC games there which I ended up playing on a few occasions. She was a pseudo-gamer so she played with me and when she didn't, looked on with some interest.



    Sega Saturn Magazine's final page, fitting and beautiful


    PS- I was a big fan of PLANETDREAMCAST.com in 2004. It's nice to see the site is still around. Easily the best DC website I've seen.

    Happy Birthday Dreamcast!
    -How many games do you own?
    16. 15 US and a Japanese copy of Zombie Revenge
    -When did you get your DC?
    January 07
    -What made you decide to get a Dreamcast?
    I'd been looking at one for a while, and they were dirt cheap. My local used shop had them for $25 each, while still selling SNES's for $50. Plus, back then I only had 3 other systems.
    -What was the first DC game you played?
    Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
    -What was the first DC game you owned?
    Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
    -How many Controllers do you own?
    5. One came with my dreamcast, and the used shop I bought it from sold them for $2 each, so I picked up 3 more for backups and MP. Then, a few months ago, I bought a boxed dreamcast for $20 on craigslist with one included.
    -What are your favorite dreamcast games?
    Grandia 2, Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, Bangai-O, Virtua Tennis.
    -What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Bomberman Online. Just didn't like it.
    -What are your favorite MP games?
    Virtua Tennis, Virtua Cop 2 (courtesy of Sega Smash Pack Vol. 1) and Sega Swirl.
    -What's your favorite DC find?
    I went to a newly opened pawnshop and found a mint, complete copy of Bangai-O. The guy used eBay to set his prices (Sword of the Berzerk for $40?!) but he must of missed that one because he looked at it for a second and said $10. Not only that, but I had a copy of Eragon for the 360 that I was going to sell to him in my car and we just ended up trading game for game. Pretty sweet.
    -What's your favorite game you got for free?
    I didn't really get any game for free unless you count trading Bangai-O for Eragon.
    -How often do you play your DC?
    Not as often as I'd like. With 9 systems it's hard to set off enough time for each one.
    -Favorite Memory centered around the DC?
    A few weeks after I got mine my friend came over and we played Sega Swirl, Virtua Cop, and Virtua Tennis until pretty late into the night. Another memory is when I took my DC on vacation with me and spent almost 4 straight hours playing one of Crazy Taxi's Minigames, where you had to take a guy to the other side of the map w/o falling in the ocean. I forget my best score, but it was better then the 10th ranked guy on Twingalaxies leaderboards.

    How many games do you own for the Dreamcast?
    42

    When did you get your DC?
    January 2003. I made the mistake of getting a GameCube in May 2002 (Australian launch) and as such, I had poured all my money into instead of getting a Dreamcast for Christmas 2001. If I'd known I would be getting ten times more enjoyment out of a DC than my GCN, I never would've bought that stupid black box.

    What made you decide to get a DC?
    The games. The console just seemed so geared towards my taste in gaming - plus I REALLY wanted to play Sega Rally 2.

    What was the first DC game you played?
    Sega Rally 2

    What was the first DC game you owned?
    Sega Rally 2!

    How many controllers do you have?

    Um, well I have one for each DC I own, so 2 there. I have another standard white one and a transparent green one (US). Do we count ALL types of controllers? Because if so, I also have an Arcade stick, SEGA light gun (not the crappy Mad Catz one America got) and fishing rod. That would be 7.

    What are your favorite DC games?
    Sega Rally 2 (despite all it's flaws)
    Soul Calibur
    Shenmue
    The House of the Dead 2 (although I can't play it on my LCD TV )
    Crazy Taxi
    The Typing of the Dead
    Tokyo Bus Guide
    Zero Gunner 2
    Street Fighter Alpha 3

    What's the worst DC game you've played?
    Nothing particularly horrendous comes to mind - I guess Incoming?

    What are your favorite multiplayer games?
    ChuChu Rocket!

    What's your favorite DC find?
    Finding almost mind copies of Ikaruga and Zero Gunner 2 for $5 each.

    What's your favorite game that you got for free?
    I have only received two games for free on the DC, Tech Romancer and Phantasy Star Online. Out of those, I would say I prefer TR.

    How often do you play your DC?
    In 2003 and 2004 I would've said EVERY DAY. It was easily my most played console. Unfortunately, I think I truly have exhausted its library of games that I am willing to buy and play (at least from a PAL perspective). I still crank it out maybe once a month or so.

    Do you have a favorite memory centered around the DC?
    Going to a 1999 computer expo here in Perth, the most isolated capital city in the world and playing a Dreamcast for the first time ever. Played Sega Rally 2 (the console was still several months away from release). I also remember some of the DC's they had were buggy and kept resetting to the DC logo. It didn't deter me, I still wanted one more than anything. It is my second greatest regret not buying one back in the day (the greatest being trading my original SNES).
