Don't say Dreamcast.....

My brother's birthday is coming up and I kinda wanna get him a weird system we never played.

Any you recommend? Bonus points if it has a fun game somewhere for survival horror or family-friendly multiplayer.

I'm a big fan of 3DO, and it's got some great horror titles on it: Killing Time, Doctor Hauzer, D, Escape from Monster Manor.

TurboGrafx 16

I think this is typically seen as the best "obscure" console.

yeah tg 16/turbo duo has a bunch of interesting games and some multiplayer stuff but everything is probably insanely expensive.

This topic has already taught me two things:

1) 3DO, not 3D0.
2) Turbografix isn't a handheld.

Huh.
