    The Sega Dreamcast is twenty-two years old today and I'm still playing mine.

    To this day I have never owned or really played any modern home console released after it.


    That said, the only game I still wish I could have for it would be Final Fantasy X.

    I love the Final Fantasy series. I actually have a PS2 copy of FFX which I have never played. And own a sealed copy of the EGM issue with the exclusive Yoshitaka Amano art for the release...


    Thinking about it, it's incredible how many great titles were released in the small window of time that the Dreamcast was supported.

    And it's astonishing to also consider the number of quality Japanese titles that you can easily import.

    But now it's unbelievable to think that thanks to the efforts of Dreamcast tech-savants that Atomiswave games are now fully playable.


    I feel more now than ever that the Dreamcast has the best library of its generation. The system that never dies.

    Happy 22nd anniversary, Dreamcast!
    Got one back in 2001 soon after Sega announced its homeconsole hardware business exit; the DC was my main console for several years until my itch for new Sega games made me buy a PS2 to play OutRun2.

    Regarding the topic, I agree with most of Team Andromeda's and Cafeman's list of Model 3 games. Other than that:

    - Shenmue 3: not the one we got a couple of years ago, but a proper conclusion to the trilogy on the Sega console;

    - Garou MOTW 2: had SNK not gone bankrupt (the NeoGeo version was reportedly 50% complete at the time), it would be a great final addition to an already stellar fighting game library;

    - Soul Calibur 2: it would be interesting to see how the DC compared to the other 6th generation consoles and which Sega character Namco would include... Golden Axe's Gilius Thunderhead or Phantasy Star's Alis anyone?

    - OutRun 2: if only we had got this one, I wouldn't have bought a PS2 to begin with...

    An arcade perfect version of G Darius and maybe they should've released a budget priced arcade port of the original The House of the Dead.

    Tekken Tag Tournament would've been great on DC if they would've released it back in the day, or even a few of the Metal Slug or Samurai Shodown games.

    Bloody Roar 3 would've been cool too.

    Probably shouldn't say but:

    "Vigilante 8"
    "Resident Evil"
    "Destruction Derby 1+2"
    "Grand Theft Auto + London Expansion"
    "House of the Dead"
    "Rally Cross"
    "Sega Rally"
    "Tekken 1+2"
    "8 + 16 bit Phantasy Star games"
    "Carnevil"
    "Die Hard Trilogy"
    "Lost World Arcade (both 16bit and 3D)"
    "Crypt Killer"
    "Clock Tower"
    "Dead or Alive"
    "Radiant Silvergun"
    "Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012"
    "Twisted Metal 1+2+3"

    Probably many more but for those I mentioned I would've enjoyed with high fidelity content, expansions, unlockables, behind-the-scenes making of, and sometimes higher difficulty.

    Maybe I shouldn't say but:
    I agree. I think after y2k bug fix when the Xbox marketed, games slowly started regressing. After AMD mantle technology on Windows 7, I don't think there's been much games worth getting besides a few odd conversions of Shin Megami Tensei catalogs and other similar games. Some of the very low price Steam games are so called "RPG Maker" types (and similar) and are surprisingly high quality and better than well known titles. "Resident Evil 4" proves gaming can evolve the wrong way. I think Dreamcast was the only marketed high capacity machine with high quality catalogs; it was great having many playstation conversions available even if the fidelity of the content wasn't much improved.

    edit:
    Probably shouldn't say but:
    "Final Fantasy VIII" surprisingly hasn't been converted with high fidelity content without fmvs. The ball room scene was demoed for the PlayStation2 market with hardware drawing the polygons, and yet most games still used fmvs or were tainted with ideas from the movie industry and still are. I probably would've enjoyed "Final Fantasy VIII" on Dreamcast. https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki...technical_demo.

    I wonder why Lestat de Lioncourt isn't named Lionheart...?

    Why shouldn't you say all those things? I don't get it.
