I remember my eyes being glued to the screen, astonished, really, admiring its jaw-dropping graphics while playing some demo fighting game (Power Stone) during its early release. In many ways the dreamcast was like a bit of a dream, it was clearly a step-ahead of it predecessors at the time (the consoles before being the N64 and playstation 1). Ah, these were the best times as a child growing up, simpler and better times.
As years went by I remember the Playstation 2 kept out-performing the dreamcast, coming out with more and better games. I remember seeing the Dreamcast dying a slow and painful death, what a shame, it had so much potential.
During 1999 I was mostly into Final Fantasy, I remember Final Fantasy 8 being released on 9/9/1999
