hehe yeh chuchu was ace too, only game of that "genre" that superceded it for me is loco roco on the psp

Didn't have a dreamcast had a Saturn and LOOOOOOVVVED it best game ever - Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Where to begin eh?

Bangai-O (best version of this shooter by a mile)
Resident Evil Code Veronica (again best version on all consoles)
Grandia 2
Skies Of Arcadia
Metropolis Street Racer
Soldier Of Fortune
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Virtua Tennis
House Of The Dead 2
Jet Set Radio
Marvel Vs Capcom 1 & 2
Powerstone 1 & 2
Samba De Amigo
Space Channel 5

Jet Set Radio and Soul Calibur :]

Metropolis Street Racer would be my top game for the system, this is what I bought it for and was certainly not let down - it really stood out as something quite different in the racing genre, I was so pleased it continued with PGR on the Xbox and to this day remains my favourite racing franchise.

Rez and Ikaruga are both oustanding titles in their field although cheaper and more readily available for the PS2 and gamecube respectively.

For arcade fun, it's hard to beat Crazy Taxi and House of the dead which are both great conversions.

I really enjoyed the 2D fighters although I appreciate they don't have so much mainstream appeal, Capcom vs SNK and Street Fighter III spent many hours in my Dreamcast.

Shenmue was the best in dreamcast played it all the time!

"lets go make some craaaayzeee money"

haha

well out of my first lot of games its been track and field & gta 2 that have held my interest the longest.... just about to revisit sega rally 2 as well!
edit - can now confirm sega rally 2's still excellent!

Aww man I love my Dreamcast! You know that they still sell bucket loads of games for it in Japan? And they know their sh*t.

Best games? Without a doubt Shenmue and soul caliber.

I'd spend hours playing the arcade games in Shenmue.

yeah shenmue really did suck you in! not been anything quite like it since

i remember u had to get the guy a job and then actually do the work every day until something unfolded. quality!
