Another problem is that people who don't own a Dreamcast play the PC/Gamecube/PS2/whatever ports and assume those are the same as Dreamcast games, which isn't always the case. Sonic Adventure games in particular have suffered a lot from this, with pretty terrible Gamecube and even worse PC/nextgen console ports that have awful lighting, texture and sound quality downgrades and removed effects. SA1 for example is a very flawed game, but with the colorful and charming atmosphere of the Dreamcast version it's easily an 8/10 game. Replace that with the meh graphics of the 2004 port and all you have left is glitches. They basically remade the strongest areas of the game to make it look worse while not improving the weakest areas (bugs/collision) at all. I believe this is where the majority of "SA1 hasn't aged well" complaints are coming from.
