SEGA literally owns two of them Pat critically acclaimed and highest selling franchises dropping today lmao

Casuals love to talk about “the decline of sega” when what the really mean is “the decline of Sonic”


Like a Dragon, Persona/SMT are guaranteed chart toppers every drop. Sega is in no way in decline. In fact they’re probably doing better than they have in decades.

I think the lack of iconic characters really hurt Sega. Sega had dope a*s games like golden axe, Shinobi and streets of rage but only sonic ever became a huge a*s star.
Shinobi coulda easily evolved into a ninja Gaiden type of game but it dont look like Sega ever got behind anything other than sonic

Sega got high off of their own success and became greedy. They tried to shove useless expensive attachments down people's throat with the Sega CD and the 32x only to release the expensive developer unfriendly Sega Saturn. That really damaged their reputation in a major way with consumers. Then there were major internal struggles between Sega US and Sega Japan where they couldn't agree on a damn thing which caused a major rift. Then there was the Dreamcast which was too little too late. Just think about this: Sega released the Sega CD, 32X, Saturn, and Dream cast all within a 7 year span.

Sega of America was far more successful than Sega of Japan. When SoA was trying to school SoJ on how to do better, SoJ wasn't having it and they had internal beef. SoJ considered SoA as a branch and didn't take them seriously due to pride and seeing Sega as a Japanese only company with SoA needing to follow their rules.

Does sega still make games? I used to get excited years back when i first came to Japan when i would see the sega logo everywhere, but nope it just meant there was a pachinko place over there. Joypolis was the last cool thing from sega but they tore it down here in Osaka.

Facts, I remember my homie had a coworker burn like 30 Dreamcast games for him. We was running through all them sh*ts.....I remember they had a tennis game that we played jokingly at first and then it became extremely addictive.

Dreamcast was FIRE.........Soul Caliber 1 was different........
