Recommended Dreamcast Games
« on: June 09, 2020, 10:38:24 am »
I hooked up my new PC (finally a PC that can run games like GTA V), so I fixed up a Dreamcast emulator and downloaded Marvel vs. Capcom 2. I only remember a few titles like Power Stone and Power Stone 2 since I didn't have the system for that long back in 2000, so what games do you recommend for the Sega Dreamcast?

Thanks everyone.  :D

Considering how long the system has been dead, I wouldn't expect the list of recommended games to have changed much over the years.  I suppose things might change if some of the games get rereleased, but that hasn't really happened either.

Try searching on youtube for the top 10 list of dreamcast games, or top 20. You'll find hundreds of videos.

Sonic Adventure 1&2, the HD versions and ports have some graphics tweaks that make them worse imo, also SA1 is so much fun to break.

Jet Set Radio, it controls like absolute ass but once you get the hang of it it becomes a lot of fun, Bantam Street is my favorite area in the game.

I might as well give a sorta reccomendation to Ecco: Defender of the Future too, I have a love/hate relationship with this game, it's a beautiful game and you can tell that the dev team was passionate about it, but the stupid jank level design and bad writing definitely detract compared to the original.

No Skies of Arcadia? Although the GameCube port is best. Same for Phantasy Star Online with better quality of life and the ability to actually play online on private servers.

I suddenly remembered today that Evolution is a thing that exists, it's a neat little dungeon crawler rpg with a sort of battle system that works sort of like Radiant Historia's.

All the reviews I've read about Evolution seem to be rather unenthusiastic.  Anyway, it's another thing that is probably better on the Gamecube.
