Why is there no, no limit holdem game for DC?? With its vmu it would be perfect to play sit'n'gos with up to four players.
Just like in Sonic Shuffle the personal cards can be displayed on the vmu.
The Dreamcast is the only console (except handhelds) which makes this possible because of the vmu.

So what do you think about it? I mean it couldn't be this hard to program such a game. You don't need any extraordinary graphics or animations. If it looks like party poker it would be absolutely fine. You also don't necessarly need AI Players.

I think the resonation for a poker game would be great ! I hope I motivated someone :thumbup:

yup, there is also Hoyle Casino which is better, but you can't play multiplayer!
Only the dreamcast makes it possible to sit with 4 players in front of one(!) TV and play poker having their personal cards on their vmu!
Despite that the "feeling" to play with real chips and cards is of course better, it would be much more comfortable. No more shuffling, automatic blind posting and beeing able to see exactly how much chips everyone has. Games would be much faster.
