Got the old Dreamcast
out to try an entertain the kids (that was after faffing with the Saturn
and getting *no picture).
Lots of games, short attention span (not me), match made in heaven.
What was odd was their favourite game was Crazy Taxi
, which was odd on many levels, from controls to ease of failure.
One thing Crazy Taxi
does well that a hell of a lot of other Dreamcast
games did really badly was time from boot to actual game play.
What with opening sequences that could not be skipped to numerous "select a save file"/"Mission briefing"/"select character(even though you only have one choice)" screens.
My all time favourite game that I thought would capture a child's imagination was Toy Commander
, but it was just to complicated and they did not connect with the fact you were playing/imagining with toys!?
* might be updating that soon after doing an hours Googling.
