I just bought a Dreamcast on eBay and since this is my first one, I have no idea which games to buy. If you have any recommendations as to which ones I should check out, please let me know.

Thanks.

At least at the time, I enjoyed Headhunter and Shenmue II (imports if you're in the US). Shenmue II being a bit better paced than the first game. Also Soul Reaver and Rayman 2, if you didn't play them on other consoles.

Toy Commander, Power Stone 2, Grandia 2, and ChuChu Rocket are all awesome.

Also Jet Set Radio, fuck the haters.

I didn't play many puzzle games, but this was on one of my dreamcast discs (I think it was a browser disc?)

Tech Romancer. It's the hilarious mech fighting game that pulls from EVERY corner of mech genre.

I second Grandia 2. Skies of Arcadia is good, but the random encounter rate is THROUGH THE ROOF.

What the hell, get an early UFC game too

Shit! Now I have to go and plug in my Dreamcast and I'm pretty sure my maracas are somewhere up in the attic.
