On September 9th, 1999, the Sega Dreamcast released in North America. While the console marked Sega's final foray into the console market, the system had an impressive library of games, including Sonic Adventure 2, Crazy Taxi, Skies of Arcadia, and Jet Set Radio. Unfortunately, the console failed to find a large audience, leading to Sega becoming a third-party publisher. The years, however, have been quite kind to the Dreamcast. Many of the system's features are now considered ahead of their time, and fans have a lot of nostalgia for the Dreamcast. In honor of the system's 21st anniversary, a number of fans took to social media to share their memories.

The system was a pioneer!
On 9/9/1999 in North America, the SEGA Dreamcast arrived. Unfortunately, It was the last console made by SEGA before going 3rd party. It was the first console to implement online gaming in their games like Phantasy Star Online.#videogame #videogames #gaming #SegaDreamcast #sega pic.twitter.com/45OvLgz2D8— ᴱᴱ_⁰².tar.gz📦 (@ee02_exe) September 10, 2020
