I've just brought my DC out of the closet (oo-err) after absolutely ages. Admittedly, it has been through accident rather than design, as the only two consoles I currently have with me are this and the Mega Drive.
I never bought the console during its lifetime, as I picked it up in 2006. Even then, I've never really given it the time it deserved. It's just so... odd, playing a console after it's already been and gone. It's just a totally weird feeling. It's the only console I have ever picked up years after it stopped being sold and passed out of " normal" gaming memory and into "retro" nostalgia.
Obviously, I don't have that nostalgia though, as a Sega/Sonic fan and as a fan of those hazy late-90s/early-2000s, the machine still stikes a chord. It also helps that I've played a few DC ports in my day (most notably on the GC).
Anyway, I've set it all up. On my HDTV through the RF connection. It doesn't look great, though it's still playable. The main drawback is that the colours are just so dull - even Sonic Adventure looks jaded. JSR is the best, as it's just so bright and colourful on its own.
So I should get a VGA or Scart cable then? I don't want to spend too much, mind, as the last time I had the console out was about four years ago. I would like to play Shenmue I and II properly though, and I just can't do that on the RF as it would put me off.
Saying that, I played my N64 through the RF for all its life - I wasn't an informed gamer then. Heck, I didn't switch my GC over to scart til some point in late 2003/2004. I am an idiot, clearly.
Anyway, these are the games I have:
Chu Chu Rocket
Jet Set Radio
Shadowman (I loved the N64 version, and this looks better, so I bought it again)
Any other recommendations? I did have MSR and Phantasy Star Online, but foolishly traded them in during a purge a few years back, thinking they would actually fetch something.
