Interest in Dreamcast rising, or... ?

Post by |darc| » Thu Dec 30, 2010 8:02 pm

Are we just becoming more popular for DC-related stuff as other sites may be going away?

I just thought it was interesting that we are seeing a steady, albeit small, increase in unique visitors per month.

I think that a part of it may be recovery from the .org shift. From when your data starts there were very very few links to .org. Now most of the dead sites that only linked to the old .com are gone, and many more links to us exist. Plus what you said of other sites simply fading away.

If everyone of those unique visitors were to send a letter to Sega, I'm pretty sure they'd start producing the Dreamcast again. DREAM ALIVE.

I think some of it may have to do with people looking back to the retro games they missed playing years ago. I know I've been. So perhaps google searches about Dreamcast related stuff brought them our way?

In any event, thanks for posting the statistics. It's always interesting to see.

Yeah, a decade on and it still has the best graphics and the best games.

Look at this sweet ass game called Outtrigger - doesn't it amaze you when you realise that nobody has been able to make a better FPS game than this?

Ive managed to never play Outrigger, but Id imagine its more fun than the last 5 or so Call of Duty games.
