Dreamcast was the last system to have a decent launch lineup.
I'd love to hear your opinion on why DC's launch lineup was excellent. I remember having bought most of the games, but only a few stick in my mind as excellent.
My favorite launch lineup is still the SNES, with only three games. Super Mario World, Pilotwings, and F-Zero are still some of the best games that Nintendo ever produced for that system.
Quality of a launch lineup, like anything else, is purely opinionated. Sales are the only thing that really matter in the short run, and 2nd gen titles are the grinding stone for any system. The Dreamcast (just like the Saturn), failed to produce 2nd gen titles that could cover their cost of operation. Heck, I still think the Saturn and DC were far superior library-wise to both of the Playstations, but those are the facts. :(
