For me, growing up I had the Genesis and adored everything sonic and Sega. I kind of skipped over the 32 bit systems and when I heard there was a 3d sonic game coming out for the new Sega system I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately my father didn't think the Dreamcast was a good investment because of Sega's downfalls of the 90's and got me ps2 one year for Christmas. That was an OK console but didn't satisfy my Sega lust haha. I ended up getting a dc from sears when they were being sold for $40! The next week I was playing PSO on schthack and haven't looked back since !
