Nephlabobo: Blood and gore in games= Not a big fan of it, so i can remove it, i will.

Btw, y'all. Soul fighter was a great game, until the damn code stop working. I use to love that game, couple weeks ago, i' was trying to put in a damn code, all you have to do is hit " Up + Y at the title screen. I'm sitting there hitting the sh** for about 30 mins , finally i just gave up : (



This game is pretty cool, if you dont mind playing the game with some of the worse control ever to exist in a video game

San Francisco Rush 2049 was the best racing game on the Dreamcast, lots of shortcuts, awesome graphics(no pop ups), and no loading times.

They butchered the game(in fact they butchered all of the games) in Midway Arcade Classics 3, with the super long loading times, the tiny screens in 2 player mode, the not so sharp graphics, the frame hiccups.

Where the hell is Tokyo Extreme Racer? For the most part I agree with the list, but Shenmue 2 should've been up higher on that list. Hell, it should've been #2 imho.

Tokyo Extreme racer is good, part II has serious problems, but if you have enough patience go for it. I have little patience, but i might get back in to the game. The problem with part II is earning money, it takes forever.

I never was a fan of Tokyo extreme Racer, don't know why it just didn't do anything for me. Left out Rayman 2 tho. One of the best platformers out imo.

As for Rush 2049 it looked fantastic and was fast but the controls felt a little too rigid for me.

Will do a few revisions to take into account what people have said. If people wanna post there personal top 5's here and I will make a combichart feel free...

So you no longer like a game because of a code? Cheat codes are lame anyway.

About 99% of the time i dont use cheat codes, i like to play games without codes. But if you played soul fighter, the game is fun as hell, but you have to use some sort of cheat to stay alive, if not, the game is impossible.

Its ok tho, because i was looking through my dc game collection today trying to figure out what to play next and i found:



This game has replace soul fighter Plus its easy, which is good. I hope a part II comes out on xbox or xbox 360 or the pc. :cool guy:

Oh if only these games had stayed on the Dreamcast it still could have been a great system today. If anyone has any suggestions or thinks differently ten post below and we can debate.

Dreamcast

01 Shenmue

Whilst it had its critics. Shenmue was simply the most immersive, detailed game on the Dreamcast. It had stunning visuals, a tremendous storyline and innovative gameplay.

Spinoff : Shenmue 2 (Xbox) Shenmue Online (PC)

02 Metropolis Street Racer

Despite the European release being dogged by bugs. MSR was one of the most amazing games of its time. Recreating in painstaking detail 3 major cities and innovation with the kudos system meant this was a DC must have. Was a massive challenge also.

Spinoff: Project Gotham Series

03 Crazy Taxi

No game had more replay value than Crazy Taxi. Perfecting drifts and boosts was essential. And the Crazy Box added longevity. This arcade perfect conversion was a must have, The PS2 remake was not a patch on the original and the Dreamcast sequel didn?t touch it either.

Spinoff: Crazy Taxi 3 (Xbox)

04 Virtua Tennis 2

The easy to play, tough to master gameplay in Virtua Tennis 2 was impressive. The gameplay was speeded up and women were introduced. Also added player creation and a world tour mode. Made the best even better. A port to PS2 was released.

Spinoff: Virtua Tennis: World Tour (PSP)

05 Resident Evil ? CV

Took the series into glorious 3D for the first time. Gave a fantastic storyline and tight controls, with a perfect learning curve. Easily the best RE since it burst onto the scene with the original. Was remade for PS2 and Gamecube but the DC version always stood out.

06 Jet Grind Radio

One of the best kept secrets on Dreamcast. Tremendous graphics and originality as well as a great musical score meant this was one of the coolest games out. Critically acclaimed but like so many DC titles never made it to the masses.

Spinoff: JSR Future (Xbox)

07 Sonic Adventure 2

The best 3D sonic to date. Great graphics and level design made this title a must have DC title. However despite Sonic and Shadows levels being great fun the other characters levels were more of a chore and hence didn?t capture the ganre defining 16-bit days. Was remade on gamecube with crisper graphics.

Spinoffs: All the Sonics

08 Phantasy Star Online

This game was hard to place on my list. It was highly addictive online. And was responsible for more hours than any other game. I still play the Gamecube version now. The addictive simple RPG that became more in-depth the more you play it pioneered console online gaming. Gamecube and Xbox ports followed which included split screen multiplayer.

Spinoffs: PSO 1&2 (Xbox, Gamecube), PSO: BB (PC)

09 Shenmue 2

The sequel to the best game on the Dreamcast. Was released in Europe with subtitles and Japan, and got a full English Xbox translation. Lost some of the feel of the first game but retained the great visuals and polished story.

10 Soul Calibur

This could well be many peoples No.1 game. Personally for me it falls short due to the fact that despite everything it is still a standard fighter with weapons. That said a bloody good one. The graphics were better than the sequels. The gameplay superb and unlockables galore. Easily the best DC fighter.

11 Sonic Adventure

Whilst it hasn?t stood the test of time well. The thrill of Sonic flying through the emerald coast level won?t be forgotten. When Sonic was released the graphics were miles ahead of anything out at the time. The biggest selling DC game.

12 House Of The Dead 2

As gun games go. Virtua Cop set the standard and Time Crisis perfected it, the story of Segas life. House Of The Dead 2 tried to do something different, and succeeded. Enemys on the whole were not armed and had dashed at the played. They also needed multiple shots to kill. This was a short lived but intense expieriance.

Spinoff: House Of the Dead 3 (Xbox)

13 Dead Or Alive 2

The ability to counter and multiple floors per stage made DOA2 stand out from the rest, oh and the boobs of course. Just falls short of Soul Calibur but still a master piece in itself. Looked better than the PS2 version and propelled this series into the limelight.

Spinoff: Dead Or Alive 3/4/Beach Volleyball

14 Virtua Tennis

Relegated down the list due to its sequel. Virtua Tennis is the one that started it all. A smash arcade hit that DC owners loved.

15 Ferrari F355 Challenge

This simulation racer was not everyones cup of tea. It was incredibly difficult. But it looked gorgeous and played fantasticly well. A PS2 version was made but was inferior (again) to the DC version.

16 Skies Of Arcadia

As turn based RPG?s go this was up there with the best. The graphics were good and the gameplay immersive. This addictive game certainly roped you in for many hours and is one of the most sorght after DC games after the DC?s life.

Spinoff: Skies Of Arcadia : Legends (GC)

17 Daytona USA 2001

Probably the most famous arcade game of all time. The 2 saturn versions of this game failed to do it justice. So after nearly a decade of waiting users finally got a definitive version of Daytona. Great visuals and speed and additional tracks made this a great purchase, shame that online play didn?t make it out of Japan.

18 Ecco

Visually stunning. Ecco took the original 2D Mega Drive title to the next generation. But it maintained some of its original criticisms. Such as its rock hard difficulty level. However thradhing around with Ecco was a joy to watch and control. PS2 version again was weaker than the DC original.

19 Samba De Amigo

Despite its ?100 proce tag. Samba remains one of the most original games in modern times and was one of the DC?s most fun game. And physically demanding. The music was great too!!!

20 Powerstone

The Dreamcast was blessed with many great fighters. So to stand out you had to be special. Powerstones isometric view and ability to use weapons as well as pick up the environment and throw it really made it a winner. The sequel lost some of the originals sparkle.

Spinoff: Powerstone Collection (PSP)

21 Sega Rally 2

The sequel to the Saturns surprise smash was not as groundbreaking as the original. However it retained its thrill a minute arcade experience and fun gameplay. The Model 3 conversion wasn?t easy as was proved with Virtua Fighter 3 but it more than held its own.

Spinoff: Sega Rally Revo. (PS3/X360)

22 Space Channel 5

This highly addictive dance game was brilliant fun for all. Slick graphics and great presentation made it another great original game for Dreamcast. A Japanese only Part 2 was made.

23 Quake 3 Arena

As online multiplayers go this was the best there was. The action was fast and lag minimal. For blast a minute fun there was nothing better. It also had compatibility with PC servers.

24 Ready 2 Rumble

This launch title proved a massive hit as it was available on most of the Dreamcast Demo pods and proved a real people magnet. Hilarious over the top animations and special moves made it stand out as the best DC boxing game. Round 2 followed, but didn?t have the same appeal.

25 Outtrigger

Coming towards the end of the DC?s life. This game offered an alternative to Quake. Great vibrant visuals with tight arcade combat areas meant this was a frantic fast paced shooter. If a little bare in the single player department.

26 Ultimate Fighting Championship

UFC?s close controls really gave you the feeling you were on the canvas grappling. The DC version was the definitive version and caught the mood and feel of UFC brilliantly.

27 Sega Bass Fishing

Possibly the most boring game ever you would think. But Sega bass fishing was perfectly implemented making it the most realistic sim out there, not up everyones street but a dream come true to fishing enthusiasts.

28 Marvel Vs Capcom 2

Despite being inside the top 30 it ranks 5th in the DC fighters list. Fantastic animation. Fast gameplay and a great soundtrack make this the best 2D fighter and shines in a world dominated by 3D fighters.

29 Hydro Thunder

Maybe a surprise but Hydro Thunder is a unsung DC hit. Its visually vibrant, fast paced action that takes a lot to master. It was an arcade perfect conversion that impressed all who played it.

30 Headhunter

Headhunter came before the days of Splinter Cell & Co. Though not the same calibur as Metal Gear Solid it certainly was not a bad game and had some great touches. Only released in Europe and Japan and one of the biggest US import DC games.
decent list but Shenmue 2 should be at the bottom, what a letdown that was...

Someone I know gave me a burned copy of Zombie Revenge, but it would screw up on me. I got up to the part where..... I think you're on a train. But the parts I played were good. I wish I can find a good copy to either download or buy for cheap.
