Wich one is better? State why you think your opinions is true
Honestly, this doesn't work. The 64 and Dreamcast were different hardware generations. They're too different to compare:
Released in 1996
Cartridge system limited memory
32.9 million sold
Dreamcast (128-bit system)
Released in 1998
Online play, albeit limited
Disc system allowed for much bigger games
10.6 million sold
See? And those are just the basics.
Yeah, they're both really cool systems..
..BUT. If I had to pick.. I chose the 64. What am I gonna play on the DreamCast?
well there from different gens, the dreamcast is from the gamecube/xbox/ps2 gen while the n64 is from the saturn/ps1 gen. (that's like comparing the gamecube to the 360)
the dreamcast is graphically better.
they both have great games
the dreamcast has online & internet browser
dreamcast use disk, the n64 use carts & n64 dd carts & has expandable ram
the dreamcast saves on external vmu only, n64 saves on carts or external memory pak
they both have 4 controller ports.
they both have controller ports for accessories merory cards, rumble, ect.
if you ask me the dreamcast could have been the next gen n64 with online & minigames on vmu at the time. if nintendo & sega joined forces thenit would have been beast.

Deamcast had a better CPU, but the library of games weren't that popular. The memory card at a screen and buttons which was new to gaming. Not to mention online play too. Though the popularity and the sales was a failure to Sega's Dreamcast, (which led to stopping production on it early) it's the end of Sega making Counsels and just being a software company.
Nintendo 64 was a 64-Bit CPU System. The library of games were a lot more popular with Nintendo's big franchises. The N64 sold 32.9 million systems worldwide. So it was bigger than the Dreamcast in popularity.
If I had to pick one I'd pick my humble Nintendo 64. The graphics aren't as good as the Dreamcast, but hey, Its got my Goldeneye and Zelda.
After mulling this over, I suppose I'd choose the N64. Having a full life cycle really helps a console have many great titles. Granted, the Dreamcast had some pretty good games, but not nearly as many (only being around for 3 years opposed to the N64's 5).
Fun fact: N64s were produced in Japan until 2003(!).
