Just ordered a "new" Dreamcast, need some game suggestions

#1 Posted by m1k3 (1338 posts) -

so i sold my old dreamcast many years ago, and i am now regretting that decision. I only had my old one for like a year at most so i really dont know what 'good' games came out. 
Now i ordered a 'new' dreamcast from thinkgeek.com and need some game recommendation. i dont have any of my old games so im pretty much open to anything. All i really owned way back then was Grandia II and Virtual ON. I already placed an order for grandia ii and skies of arcadia though. 
 
(also, im thinking about doing an unboxing of the dreamcast when it arrives, but that if it really is "new." still up in the air)

Powerstone 2, Soul Calibur, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and maybe the Sonic Adventure games (1 &2).  The Dreamcast had a lot of great fighters.

You're just in luck since I have a list of all the Dreamcast games I would get...if I had a Dreamcast. Hopefully, you'll find something you like off of here.
 

Reasons I Should've Bought a Dreamcast

I was a Nintendo Power subscriber who barely knew anything about the PlayStation 2, and even less about the Dreamcast. How was I to know that I was missing out on such a great console way back a decade ago? I didn't. Sorry, Sega, for letting you down.

Rayman 2 was great on the Dreamcast, as were the DC versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2.

Thats pretty awesome. I wouldnt mind getting a Dreamcast also. I have played Shenmue 2 so that would probably be what I would get if I were to get one. But I don't know that many Dreamcast titles as the only one I ever played a fair bit of was Crazy Taxi. JackiJinx seem to have a pretty good list of titles though.

Soul Calibur and King of fighters Dream Match 1999 are pretty good fighters for the system!

Chu Chu Rocket, Jet Grind Radio, Shenmue, Soul Caliber, Dead or Alive 2, Rayman 2, and Skies of Arcadia. Also, Bomberman Online is pretty good (although Bomberman Live for Live/PSN is a little better).
