OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Thom, do yourself a favour - if you have never played Shenmue, give it a go. It's only on Dreamcast, but there are a couple of emulators that run acceptably under Windows and it's not too hard to find the ISO's online. Playing Shenmue under emulation drove me to buy a Dreamcast and a copy of Shenmue 1 and 2. It's an iconic game, and really worth playing at least once in your life.

Hell yeah! Shenmue was amazing and they had big plans for it to be a huge series. Too bad an unwilling market dictates what is released, so when it basically failed the gamers were screwed. ;) I wished they would have re-released it on the GameCube.

Another awesome one was Skies of Arcadia... admittedly I didn't play it originally on Dreamcast, but I was amazed when I played the extended Skies of Arcadia Legends on GameCube.

Shenmue was the best! I almost studied East Asian Languages and Cultures at college on account of that game.
