Now the interesting part is, based on my collection, the blu-ray forum statistic page says I'm:

Strongly overrepresented: Family, Fantasy
Overrepresented: Adventure, Foreign, Martial arts
Underrepresented: Drama
Strongly underrepresented: Comic book, Crime, Dark humor, Erotic, Film-Noir, Heist, Horror, Nature, Other, Psychological thriller, Short, Sport, Thriller

But most of you says I love comic books.

The fact is I have purchased those blu-ray titles mainly for family watching. So in this round, the computer statistic wins haha. If it is purely my own collection the list could be slightly different, but now came to think of it, it will not be too far off. I'm not young but probably just young at heart haha.
Well, no point in making an ASSUMPTION of you now i guess.

I don't agree on 'PoS' as I've had some fun times with mine, but I will agree on overrated, both at the time and in retrospect. And it tends to be remembered by fanboys with revisionist gaming history ideas. Still, surprising for one using the name Segagamer.

The controller is garbage, plain and simple, any fun I might have had was nullified but that utterly useless piece of crap. The N64 controller was bad but it worked fantastic for the ONE game it was designed for and was crap for everything else. But Dreamcast, to me, is the worst controller ever made. I hate it more than I hate the Wii remote.

There were maybe ten games on the console that couldn't be played anywhere else, when it was brand knew Bleem was marketed like crazy. Why bother playing Dreamcast games when you could play PS1 games on the console, that translated to bad press and made the must have games look less desirable.

The machine was underpowered for the time, the games were lacking severely in framerate usually slowdown was rendered most games with any action like fighting games, wrestling games, shooters, nearly unplayable. People tend to over look those flaws either due to nostalgia, or they just don't care about tight gameplay I don't know. Saturn had flaws, sure, but it didn't have framerate issues on every game. It's biggest flaw was pop up which was normal for 3D games at the time so you can look past that.

I play Soul Caliber or Mortal Kombat Gold on Dreamcast they are not playable. I would rather play MK4 on N64 and SC 2 on any of the systems that followed. IDK maybe I was too harsh on it when it was knew *because* of the bad taste Saturn left in my mouth and the bad press Sega garnered as a result.

I saw the merits of Sega CD but it was flawed and the emphasis was, wrongly, placed on CD audio and FMV games. Turbo CD provided a template for what CD Rom games should be like and Sega dropped the ball but there was true potential. 32X was well a stop gap, it was a cheap entry gate into the next gen without going full in. At the time I loved it just for the MK2 game and Doom ports alone. Sure they were dated games but these were the best versions available, at the time.

I am not usually that picky, I tend to enjoy most game consoles, and maybe POS was too strong, but I felt the Dreamcast was overrated, failed to deliver on it's promises and above all it just leaves a sour note being the LAST Sega console, and the last true home console to really try to cater to the arcade market. As a person who grew up playing arcade games seeing the arcade industry die was harder on me than losing Sega, the undisputed kings of the arcade industry also. So yeah Dreamcast was just not my cup of tea.

I could enjoy the games that were worth playing on superior hardware with controllers and framerates that made the games playable or "barely" play them on the Dreamcast with it's terrible controller and framerate issues.



Also no assumptions based on my library even after I retracted my original objection?

Completist in nature. Age about 35-40. Pretty much selective, and only the best of the best goes into your blu-ray list.

Our movie taste is quite similar, just that I haven't find a good price for those in your list, yet.

Absolutely right! And there is one rule I always use when picking films to be in blu-ray -> of course I watch other films in other format too but for blu-ray collection, I am particularly picky.. The rule is simply that for most of the movie in my collection it has to be watchable again and again for at least 10 times without getting bored.

You're a sexually charged transvestite with a door knob fetish and an affinity for fifties-style diners.

Uses the word 'knockers' when referring to a woman's breasts at least once a week.

Excellent relationship with your mother.
