Happy 10th Birthday Sega Dreamcast!

Well, today marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. release of the Sega Dreamcast video game console, and it seems like everyone is getting in on the action, so why not me as well?

I bought a Sega Dreamcast as soon as it came out, and to be quite frank, it was probably the best purchase I ever made. I loved the thing to no end, and it provided me and my friends with many sleepless nights playing games like Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Jet Grind Radio, Seaman, Soul Calibur, and countless others. I've owned a lot of video game systems over the years, but for some reason, the Dreamcast sticks out as the host of all of my fondest memories attributed to my video gaming hobby - there was just something special about Sega's last machine, and the fact that it died an early death makes it all the more special. So here's to you, Sega and your Dreamcast, for providing the best, most unique gaming experience ever. You were awesome!
