The cell-shaded visuals like Jet Grind Radio, the innovative gameplay mechanics, the humor and charm, it just makes me think of Sega and the Dreamcast every time I play it

I love the Jet Set games. I would love to see a third. That'll never happen though like half life ep. 3.

I agree.

Borderlands 1 not so much but definitely Borderlands 2.

I loved the Dreamcast game aesthetic of games like Sonic adventure and Phantasy Star Online and now that you mention it, this game has like an HD version of that.

Since 2000? Dreamcast put cel-shaded graphics on the map. Wacky Races was arguably the first cel-shaded game, followed by Jet Set Radio and others such as Sonic Shuffle, Looney Tunes Space Race and Bomberman Online. The success of cel shading on Dreamcast inspired many cel shaded games on its competitor, the Playstation 2, where cel shading reached its peak popularity.

So apparently you missed the point.

To state the obvious, without the innovative strides Sega took with the Dreamcast's titles there probably wouldn't have been an Okami.

Sega had a great machine and a lot of great games, the timing just sucked. Maybe if they waited another few years and had something equal to the Ps2 they might still be in the console war today. Hell they jump started the online gaming front too.
