    My buddy recently offered to sell me a used Sega Dreamcast-in relatively good condition- with a few accessories and about a dozen games for just over $100.

    I'd always wanted to own that system way back in the day. Is it good enough to warrant a purchase, even now?

    The systems themselves are going for cheap. Like $20 or so. It's a fun system. What games is he including?

    Here's the list:

    Sonic Adventure
    Jet Grind Radio
    Soul Caliber
    Hydro Thunder
    Resident Evil: Code Veronica
    Shenmue
    Marvel VS. Capcom
    Quake 3 Arena
    Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
    Spider-Man
    Crazy Taxi 2
    AirForceDelta
    House of the Dead 2

    Maybe I should just buy the games and look for the system at GameStop or somewhere...

    If there are like 3 or 4 VMUs I would take it. The games listed there are pretty good.

    From the ones I played: Sonic Adventure, RE:CV, Jet Grind, Shenmue. They are all awesome. I would consider buying it, $100 for the system, accesories and games is a pretty good deal. Plus it is really easy to play emulators on the DC.

    There is a reason why it has a strong community, despite it being so old and no longer in production.

    I'd say go for it. Those games are all A-list titles for the system, except for Air Force Delta, which I'm not so sure of. But if the deal came with VMUs or the 4x memory card, it's a definite buy in my eyes.

    Damn, I sold mine plus 8 games 2 years ago for only $50. Then again, I only paid $5 for it and the big box of toys it was in.

    Was I the only one unimpressed and relatively bored with that game? Especially when you couldn't pick up the hooker in the beginning?
