I have this weird fixation with the port of Half Life for Dreamcast. I had half life on pc, but for whatever reason I ended up playing a LOT of HL1 on PS2 at my friends house who had that version. I got the pirated version of HL on DC maybe 7 or 8 years ago and sort of…. love playing it? The game felt a little dated on PS2 but playing it on DC its like “hell yeah, this is some next level graphics.”
Love the DC, but my “retro budget” goes towards PS1 and Genesis. Sadly my DC still just has composite cables etc.
One of the most defining memories of the DC for me is in one of the 98 GAMEPRO issues where it first announced, and they said “the console is a third of this magazine cover” or something like that. And it seemed so impressive to 13 year old me.
