It’s Craaazzzy! My Crazy Taxi Display
One of my most memorable gaming moments was walking inside the massive Sega display at E3 in 2000. The Dreamcast had just been unleashed to the gaming public and I was chomping at the bit to see what games were coming out for the system. Notable games like Sonic Adventure, Virtua Fighter, Sega Rally, and Soul Caliber were all being hyped up, but I was particularly interested in one game: Crazy Taxi.
When I finally got a chance to try I it out, I was blown away.
The graphics, the sound, the music, and the gameplay was exactly like the arcade version! Talk about impressive! I walked away with a great appreciation of what the Dreamcast had to offer and what it was capable of delivering. As is the case with most trade events, I took home a bunch of souvenirs including posters, magazines, hats, and a few Sega key chains. The best souvenir, however, was the mini cardboard display of Crazy Taxi the Sega reps were handing out.
Despite being made out of cardboard (and having been in storage for so long), the display looks just as sleek and pristine as it did when I first laid my eyes on it almost twenty years ago!
