    Default Dreamcast exclusives in 2022?

    While the Dreamcast had its fair share of amazing exclusive games, it seems 20 years later that almost all of them have been ported to other systems and the PC, including: Sonic Adventure, Shenmue I and II, Street Fighter 3rd Strike, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5, Power Stone 1 and 2, Ikaruga, etc.

    What games are only on Dreamcast that make this system worth owning in 2022? I honestly cant think of a single one outside of the original Soul Calibur.

    Wasn't the Dreamcast port of Soul Calibur put up on XBLA?

    Have the Eldorado Gate games been ported.

    That was one of the Dreamcast's best exclusives.

    That includes arcade ports that were only ported to the DC. I might have accidentally listed a couple that aren't exclusive, but I think the list is mostly ok.

    Besides true exclusives, there's also games that aren't exclusive, but the Dreamcast has the best or only console port, or the Dreamcast version is unique in some way.

    you're right, there are almost no exclusives that make the console worthwhile.

    blue stinger, crazy taxi 2, fighting vipes 2, Plasma sword, swords of the berserk, sports xtreme, sakura taisen, project justice, spawn, outtrigger , max steel, floigan bros, under defeat, time stalhers.virtua fighter 3.

    but for my personal taste only EGG compensates, the other games for me are weak its continuations are on later console and I played almost all of them, also my favorite dreamcast games are: Tomb raider, Soul Reaver (my favorite) Shadowman capcom vs snk 2 that is, games can be found on other platforms, I think the Dreamcast was the console that lost the most exclusives in console history. but having the physical console is always worth it for those who are fans

    People often say this, but the Dreamcast has a lot of games that are still exclusive considering its short lifespan, relatively small library of games., and having barely any third party companies developing games for it. Here's a list just off the top of my head, loosely sorted by genre. I'm only considering games that were released in North America so if you include Japanese or European releases this list would be bigger. Games that only had Dreamcast and arcade releases are included, games with asterisks were never released on anything else besides Dreamcast.

    Horror:
    *Blue Stinger
    *Carrier
    *D2
    *Illbleed
    *The Ring

    RPG:
    *Armada
    *Elemental Gimmick Gear
    *Evolution: The World of Sacred Device (Evolution Worlds on GameCube doesn't contain the full game)
    *Record of Lodoss War
    *Seventh Cross Evolution
    *Time Stalkers

    Action/Adventure/Platformer:
    Alien Front Online
    Dynamite Cop
    *Draconus
    *Floigan Bros
    *Gundam Side Story 0079
    *Max Steel
    Outtrigger
    *Red Dog
    *Soul Fighter
    Spawn: In The Demon's Hand
    *Super Magnetic Neo
    *Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage
    *Toy Commander
    Zombie Revenge

    Racing:
    *4 Wheel Thunder
    *Daytona USA 2001
    *Flag To Flag
    *Metropolis Street Racer
    *Pen Pen TriIcelon
    *Pod Speedzone
    *Rippin Riders
    *TNN Motorsports Hardcore Heat
    *Tokyo Xtreme Racer 1 & 2

    Fighting:
    Plasma Sword
    Project Justice
    Soul Calibur
    Tech Romancer
    Virtua Fighter 3tb

    Shmup/Lightgun:
    Cannon Spike
    Charge N Blast
    Confidential Mission
    Giga Wing 2
    Heavy Metal Geomatrix
    Mars Matrix

    Misc:
    *Air Force Delta
    *Bomberman Online
    ChuChu Rocket
    *Coaster Works
    *Industrial Spy Operation Espionage
    *Iron Aces
    *Ooga Booga
    *Sega Bass Fishing 2
    *Sonic Shuffle

    Sports:
    *NCAA Football 2K2
    *NBA 2K & 2K1
    *NFL 2K & 2K1
    *NHL 2K & 2k2
    Sports Jam
    *Tee Off
    Virtua Athlete 2000
    Virtua Striker 2
    Virtua Tennis
    *World Series Baseball 2K1

    Then there are games that are still regional exclusives, like yeah, Seaman came out on PS2 in Japan, but if you want to play it in English the Dreamcast version is your only option. And there are edge cases where something like Maken X was significantly different enough from its PS2 port (first person vs third person) that it could be considered an exclusive as well.

    OK, not every game in this list is a banger, but of all of the true Dreamcast exclusives, Blue Stinger, Carrier, D2, Illbleed, Armada, Elemental Gimmick Gear, Record of Lodoss War, Draconus, Super Magnetic Neo, Sword of the Berserk, Toy Commander, Daytona USA 2001, MSR, Pen Pen TriIcelon, and Tokyo Xtreme Racer are all essential Dreamcast experiences in my opinion. And all of the rest are interesting enough to at least be worth checking out.
