Anyone who's owned a Dreamcast will understand the punchline. The DC had the noisiest drive that I've ever heard. The PS2 can actually also be a noisy little fella too, especially when the laser is gouging grooves into your game disc like a drunken Darth Vader playing pin the tail on Jabba with his light saber.
All that being said though, the Dreamcast was a great little system. Who can forget Dead or Alive 2? Soul Calibur? Sea Man? Power Stone? Shen Mue? Skies Of Arcadia? I don't own a DC anymore, but I'm thinking of buying another one.
