So far I've got the following:

The Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Metropolis Street Racer
Quake 3 Arena
Shenmue (which I will sit down and play through completely one day, I swear)
Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure 2
and Soul Calibur.

I'm also hoping to get a cheap copy of Chu Chu Rocket! and Daytona USA 2001 from eBay. Can you guys recommend anything that makes owning a Dreamcast worthwhile?

I would be very surprised if you were able to find a non-cheap copy of that game. I remember buying a second copy of it only because it was like $4 new.

Anyway, I wholeheartedly second Jet Grind Radio, Toy Commander, and Crazy Taxi 1 and 2. They provide lots of great fun, they're common, they're cheap, they're amazing.

Other greats:

Bangai-O (original, clever take on shooters)
Border Down (my favorite horizontal shooter ever)
Dynamite Cop! (second best 3D beat 'em up ever)
Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves (SNK's crowning achievement, too bad it's so pricey)
Headhunter (similar to Syphon Filter, and really awesome)
Maken X (first person action game, pretty unique)
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (the DC controller is really good for this game)
Power Stone 1 and 2 (both are a blast)
Rayman 2 (really great 3D platformer, still holds up)
Rez (synaesthesia)
Samba de Amigo (one of the best music games ever, although you need the maracas)
Super Magnetic Neo (cleverly designed platformer based around magnetism)
Tokyo Xtreme Racer 1 and 2 (among the most fun racing games ever)
Tony Hawk 1 and 2 (the first two are the best two, IMO)
Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram (no elaboration necessary)

Some fine titles that haven't been mentioned yet (The Crazy Taxis, the Power Stones, Jet Grind Radio and so on are must-haves)

The House of the Dead 2 ... get it with a gun and you're in for a mindless good time.
Ooga Booga ... rather a fun and silly party game with a lot of charm and interesting characters.
Phantasy Star Online + Episode II ... you may as well get the Gamecube or Xbox re-release, but there's no harm in tracking down the originals. Of course, the single player mode you'll be restricted to can be a little lame, but I've still had a lot of fun with it.
Slave Zero ... there's a lot of negativity directed towards this game, but I just don't see it. Lots of action, fun weapons, and one dang cool mech.
Zombie Revenge ... it has some problems, but the cheese dripping from the voice acting combined with the sheer stupid fun of zombie thrashing in a 3D beat-'em-up setting gets my thumbs up.

I'm amazed they got away with naming that. An explanation would be nice...? :)

OK, so far I've purchased Crazy Taxi, Worms World Party (shut up, I'm a fan of the PC version; 4-player madness shall be fun), Jet Set Radio, Power Stone, and Toy Commander. All for 30 shipped, which is rather spiffy considering a single new PS2 game would set me back 40ish. Thanks, all.

Maken X is the only Dreamcast game I ever sold. I simply couldn't stand it. Slave Zero is okay but it's better on the PC. Ikaruga is cheaper and easier to get for Gamecube.

Anyway let's see what hasn't been mentioned.

No one mentioned the Space Channel 5 games, shame on you.

Sword of the Berserk is very cool but also very short.

Daytona USA just for the DAAAAAAAAAAYTOOOOOOOOONAAAAAAAAA! song.

Grandia II, second best RPG on the system, best battle system ever.

Tech Romancer, plain old super robot mayhem with tons of anime references.

Gundam Side Story 0079, did I mention I liked robots? Also short but pretty sweet. The most realistic Gundam game ever in my opinion.

Star Lancer, the best wing commander esque game since wing commander.

Mars Matrix, pure mayhem of a shooter and much better than its cousin GigaWing. Goes for a pretty penny now-a-days though like most famous shooters.

Every Japanese Shooter ever made but not released in the West. Bittorrent if you have to but it's worth the price of admission for a Dreamcast just to play its vast library of shooters and fighters that were never released in the West.

I didn't mention Space Channel 5 because Part 2 wasn't released in English for DC, and the US PS2 release includes both parts (and is dirt cheap). The graphics are significantly worse on PS2, but understanding what people are saying is kind of important to the fun of it.

The El Dorado Gate series, if you like old-school RPGs with glorious artwork/sprites...through VGA, this game is amazing.
I second Shenmue II. The PAL version runs fine on my DC.
I second Illbleed, if you're that type of gamer.
Ooga Booga if you have friends.
Floigan Bros.

Most of these are fairly cheap now, so it shouldn't break your budget. :)

Let's see. Opinions of the games I've purchased so far:

Crazy Taxi - Arcade perfect. Short as hell, but I think the sheer size of the two cities more than makes up for this. Shame there's no two-player mode, though. Blue, sunny skies, rocking soundtrack (is that the Offspring?), copmletely unrealistic physics, fun as hell - Sega spirit in one shiny spinny GD-ROM.
Chu Chu Rocket! - oh my God. Oh my God. I'm in love.
Worms World Party - Not bad. A great conversion of the PC version, but I'm not so keen on the lack of voice samples. It's still got daft weaponry, though, and the ability to blow players 2, 3 and 4 out of the screen.
Toy Commander - I don't know. The manual isn't that clear on how to play the game - even ingame, there isn't much clue as to what you're supposed to do. How do I drop sugar lumps into the cocoa? What button drops them? How do I pick them up? Do they come equipped at the start of the mission? Aaaaargh! It's great looking, though. I love the cel-shaded intro.
Power Stone - Still yet to play this. The disc only seems to work when it feels like it :/

-The House Of The Dead 2
-Sonic Adventure
-Sonic Adventure 2
-Gundam 0079 Side Story

So...I need suggestions. What else should I look for to try? My next Dreamcast purchases are going to be Confidential Mission, Outtrigger, and Quake 3. Opinions? Comments? Suggestions? Any bit of Dreamcast knoweldge you can impart on me would be greately appreciated.

Quake 3 is virtually unplayable without the keyboard/mouse combo. Using the colour buttons to move and the analogue stick to aim is very, very difficult. Other than that, it's an almost-exact port of the PC original. I've heard it's also possible to play against players of the PC version online, although I can't vouch for this. It's a minor detail, but I love how the VMU displays your character's icon ingame.

Looking past the control difficulties, though, the game is a pretty fun no-brainer 'frag everything that isn't you'-fest. Unless you like fragging bot after bot after bot the single-player mode can be dull, though.

Oh, and it very rarely shows a hint of slowdown, which surprised me considering how thick the action can get.

Now you tell me about Gundam and HotD :)


Also: Power Stone is haaaard. Yep, it's a Capcom fighter: fifteen seconds into the fight and I'm KO'd. I'm terrible at beat-em-ups unless I buttonmash :(

Flash1087
06-28-2006, 02:15 AM
Gundam Side Story is, hands-down, my favorite giant-robot game ever. It's a combination of mech sim, FPS, and strategy. You get to command the other robots on your squad to waypoints you designate and even control their style of combat, ala Ghost Recon 1. The controls take some getting used to, but very responsive when you get the hang of it, and there's some decent customization options for your Gundam. All in all, it's pretty fun.

House of the Dead 2? What's there to say? One of the first light-gun games to implement branching mission paths and hidden areas, and while you never get any weapons other than a pistol (which is one of my favorite things about the Time Crisis series) it's pure, brainless, challenging, zombie-blasting fun. Plus, it has the most awesomely-bad voice acting I've ever heard.

"We're...meeting G over-THERE."

Obviously
06-28-2006, 07:02 AM
Gundam Side Story is okay. I get pissed off that I'm in a giant robot and my weapons except for the beam rifle are incredibly impotent. As far as customizartion goes it's leagues behind games like Mechwarrior and Armored Core. Also like most simulation games your helpers are complete and utter retards.

I did enjoy it though, it's a good choice when you're looking for a more slow paced and tactical game but unfortunately it's only like nine missions and once you beat them once you know exactly how to do it every time and it loses all replay value. If the game had more missions and a bigger variety of mobile suits instead of just two GM's and a Guncannon it could've been one of my favorite mech games. I still think the graphics detail is pretty nice even today.

I heard there's an extra disk released only in Japan that allows you to use the RX-78-2 Gundam itself as well as the other White Base mobile suits but I've yet to track it down.

Sonic Shuffle ended up the same as Sonic R: some unknown third party developed the game, and a similarly obscure sidearm of SEGA bought it up and slapped Sonic and co. in there close to the end of development. Hence the reason it's not considered 'official' canon.

I just can't get into Toy Commander. It's not particularly difficult - it's just it's so damned vague. 'Push the eggs into the pot, don't forget to light the stove!' The pushing part is obvious enough - where are the eggs? Oh, there they are. Now I've lost half my fuel. Great. Restart mission, head to the counter again. Time to shove them in there ... now how the hell do I light the stove? I don't have a fire weapon, maybe if I roll a fruit onto the hob and set it ablaze ... nope. It just exploded. Oh, the knobs turn on the side of the stove. Which one? I mean, little indicator arrows wouldn't hurt. Grr.

Sonic Shuffle ended up the same as Sonic R: some unknown third party developed the game, and a similarly obscure sidearm of SEGA bought it up and slapped Sonic and co. in there close to the end of development.

Actually, no. Sonic Shuffle was developed to use the Sonic characters from the very beginning of development -- Sega wanted a Mario Party equivalent starring Sonic, and contracted the very developer of Mario Party to make one. They proceeded to make Sonic Shuffle, from scratch. That developer wasn't terribly unknown. I'm not sure who you're referring to when you mention a "sidearm" of Sega.

Additionally, Sonic R was also devised originally as a Sonic game. Its developer, Traveller's Tales, wasn't horribly unknown (as they had done Sonic 3D Blast after splitting from Psygnosis). Because Sonic 3D had been a hit (despite poor fan reception), Sega asked them to make another Sonic game. As I recall, they actually specifically requested a racing game, so as to be something that had Sonic in 3D but wouldn't 'compete' with Sonic X-Treme.


Hence the reason it's not considered 'official' canon.

I don't think there's really any substance in Sonic R or Shuffle to be canon or not canon.

I don't think there's really any substance in Sonic R or Shuffle to be canon or not canon.

I guess I was wrong - there's so much hyperbole surrounding both games it's easy to get your facts and opinions mixed up, heh.

As for 'canon', I meant Sonic R occupies the same niche as the Advance series, or more recently Sonic Pocket Adventure - nothing exceptionally great or terrible, and only shares a very slight link with Sega (if I recall rightly, Yuji Naka is mentioned as a 'consultant' in R's closing credits - everyone else is related to Traveller's Tales...?). As for Sonic Shuffle, it explains why characters like Luna and Void aren't seen again. Same goes for Bark the Polar Bear, Bean the Dynamite, Heavy and Bomb from Chaotix, etc. etc. etc.

My point was it's easy to point out certain games as being 'woe is me doom and gloom death rattle' for Sega and/or Sonic Team, when said games have only the vaguest ties to the company. I guess I worded myself poorly, though.

There is no way on hell, heaven or earth that Sonic Shuffle was developed by the Mario Party crew.

Sonic Shuffle is among the worst "games" (?!) I ever "played" (!?), only surpassed by the US FMV "games" for SCD.

Mario Party however you can actually play (!) and it is fun (!!!), the comparision is like night and day, black and white, fire and water, cats and dogs, etc.... It's just the exact opposite.

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that the Saturn and the Dreamcast are truly and officially dead. Granted, the consoles themselves hadn't been made for years, but Sega was still repairing them both, as well as manufacturing the GD-Roms that were specific to Dreamcast games. No more. This offically kills off all the "Dreamcast isn't really dead" rumors that persisted despite all evidence to the contrary.

It was released at the end of the Dreamcast's production as a way for Sega to say 'sorry' for the DC's poor reputation. I kid you not. http://hg101.classicgaming.gamespy.com/segagaga/segagaga.htm
