How come Dreamcast games all look so bright and colorful? Dumb question, I know, but most of the recommended games for the system seem so sunny and pleasant to look at, and even games set during the night also were still really colorful. Even if it wasn't as advanced as the systems that came out after it that gen, most of its games look better to me than a lot of PS2 games.

>> No.6238754

>>6238729
I think it's mostly because the Dreamcast was only getting a ton of development during the late 90s, so what happened was those design trends being the main ones, also a really big variety of weird japanese companies that sega was friends with that had more bombastic art

>> No.6238756

>>6238729
It's the late 90s.
Japan is on an economic recovery.
Technology just keeps advancing---3D became useable only a few years ago---there's an urge, a desperation, to break the mold.
Colors had been restricted all throughout the decade due to low graphical power. Muted and muddy color schemes have been the norm for 2D and especially 3D games.
A new millennium is on the horizon. Things can only get better from here. Optimism is in the air.
So what gets made? Jet Set Radio. Crazy Taxi. Ecco the Dolphin. Sonic Adventure. Phantasy Star Online. Space Channel 5. 3rd Strike. Real shiny games.
The Dreamcast has branded itself as a shiny system with lots of polish. It's the beginning of a new era, and the culture is a reflection of that. Hip-hop, D&B, Ambient, very cutting-edge, upbeat stuff. This is what the future was supposed to be: clean, soothing, uplifting, sharp yet classy yet rebellious yet progressive. Good vibes.
That's what the Dreamcast was about. That's what the games were about. You could see that spirit carried on past its prime into its ill-fated releases on the Xbox, its spiritual successor, as well as too its own later releases. But after 9/11, there was a shift and gradually that ethos died out in gaming and the public imagination. The future we saw was grimy, desperate, dark, hopeless, dangerous, and the cultural output came to reflect that.

Great posts, I was trying to formulate from an outside perspective how I saw these games and that explains it very well. Never owned a Dreamcast, but my cousin had one and I always wanted one because of the games and their colorful visuals. I can see why there so many Sega faithful even after the Dreamcast died out, their place in the console market was a sign of a shift in video game presentation.

His reasoning for a port being worse is because the textures are slightly worse. And because of this, the ports are so inferior, they don't bear mentioning as worthwhile parts of the Dreamcast's library; don't leave out the context because that's the underlying reason for the argument to begin with. If there was a great disparity in content between the versions or the Dreamcast version ran at half the framerate, or something, he (you) might have a point but that isn't the case.

No it doesn't. The original version of NAOMI has a single 100 MHz PowerVR2 just like the Dreamcast.

All that NAOMI really has over Dreamcast is more memory, and everybody knows of that advantage. It makes sense based on that, that it could have higher resolution textures.

>faster VRAM bandwidth
Only there to increase access times across the larger VRAM. In any case, it doesn't matter. PowerVR2 literally runs at peak theoretical performance with the VRAM that Dreamcast has (at least in terms of framebuffer write speed), so faster memory bandwidth wouldn't help. It's tile based deferred rendering after all.

Dreamcast performance is entirely bound by CPU/T&L/triangle setup.

"The NAOMI (New Arcade Operation Machine Idea) from Sega is an arcade system based on the Dreamcast that became available in 1998 and succeeded Sega's Model 3 series. The similar architecture between the NAOMI and Dreamcast include a Hitachi SH-4 CPU (running at 200MHz), Yamaha AICA sound, and a different version of the PowerVR Series 2 GPU. Where the NAOMI out performs the Dreamcast is in having double the system memory (32 MB VS. 16 MB) and double the graphics (VRAM) memory (16 MB VS. 8 MB), four times the sound memory (8 MB VS. 2MB) and updated PowerVR GPU with better performance."

Because we grew up not knowing anything about gaming industry and some dudes were selling clones of NES and Mega Drive 2 (no one here knows about Model 1).
And, of course, we were poor and piracy.

Dreamcast is popular here because we knew SEGA and bootlegs were ~100rubles ($3).

Also, PS2 and other 6-gen didn't rise here because:
1) Around ~2000 there was a trend for PC for "studying", and it was actually a first PC for many.
2) We had a dozen of PC-only magazines which either never talked about consoles or straight-out shat on them.
3) Very few of us liked anime, and even if someone knew about consoles, but disregarded them as kids-game because majority of its games were anime/cartoony.

But DC was SEGA and that was enough.

You could try one of those cheap vga to hdmi converter boxes. They're not the worst thing if you don't care about absolute reference quality video. I think at most they will crush the blacks with a VGA signal. If you're not looking to spend much, that would be the cheapest option. OSSC has a vga input on it, but you're gonna be at the mercy of what kind of signals your hdtv can accept from it. I'd rather chance it and get an OSSC than deal with Behar Bros. products to be honest.

What really happened is that the Dreamcast made a gamble and lost. They made a 90s console at the end of the 90s, based on arcade games already dying by '99.
They didnt try something innovative and new, they made a few games for the system and then ported everything else over from the Naomi and tons of old PSX games.

PS2 is the best console of that gen for the same reason it ruined future consoles. It had that DVD player which artificially inflated the playerbase (people who didn't play games bought one), so most devs naturally flocked to it because it had the biggest playerbase in history. The PS2 had such a massively wide range of games in every genre and a lot of them knocked it out of the park. The consequence is ever since then every single console has either been either a gimmick or a media device.

The Dreamcast and Gamecube overflow with charm, but when it comes to the library PS2 wins hands down.
