I loved that game when I was a kid! It's the first game I can remember completing. Streets of Rage 2 holds up a little better, though.

Tough question, both great consoles but the SNES is so widely emulated (legally and otherwise) that I'd say get a Dreamcast!

The two blend together for me because when I had them originally they were both on teh same cartridge.

Something I have come to realise, HDTVs do not like playing old consoles that use the RF in, the picture is sometimes pretty bad.

I have a snes emulator but its just not the same on a computer with a computer controller or keyboard. As for the dreamcast I want to play the games but I have a bad feeling from what I read that it would be rare to find a dreamcast that works well, might try and get a decent dreamcast emulator for the computer and play teh games that way and get a snes. But I have disk emulators... decisions decisions...

Thinkgeek, weirdly, are selling them new and boxed and you can emulate SNES games on the Dreamcast .

Fawkes so broke that game. You never have to fear death once you get that guy. I've NEVER seen him get killed by enemies. Shit, it took forever for me to kill him when I was purposefully trying to do so.
