6. SEAMAN: Virtual pets, especially the Tamagotchi, were all the rage in the 90s. Kids and teenagers alike were tied to the schedule of cute little electronic animals that lived in their pockets. Sega decided to apply this concept to the Dreamcast. Only, they took it in a completely different direction with Seaman which (when you can get over giggling like a 10-year-old about the name) features a fish with a human face. This probably isn’t what most people had in mind when they envisioned a virtual pet inhabiting their gaming console. Much like a Tamagotchi the Seaman has to be cared for and interacted with as it evolves, otherwise it will die. But this interaction is far removed from the kawaii style you get from a Tamagotchi. Instead, the player must talk to their nightmarish, virtual pet through a microphone. He talks back, via the voice of Leonard Nimoy, at first just asking simple questions, but then later progressing to full blown psychoanalysis. If the conversation doesn’t haunt you, the face will.
