    Default What is your favourite Sega Dreamcast game?

    I think these types of threads are fun so I wanted to start another for my favourite console of all time.

    Oh man, very hard decision, although nostalgia combined with my love of giant robots would say;

    Tech Romancer
    Chōkō Senki Kikaiōh

    I've been reading upon the release since 1998 and playing direct Sega Naomi-board arcade titles soon to be released on Dreamcast Power Stone, Marvel Vs Capcom, Spawn In The Demons Hand and Tech Romancer that lead me to pre-order the system. Although my first few games I bought were Psychic Force 2012 and The King of Fighters Dream Match 1999 I was greatly anticipating Chōkō Senki Kikaiōh!

    Posts like this make me feel really good!

    Given all the good name drops is I feel obligated to mention Project Justice & Star Gladiator 2: Nightmare of Bilstein on the fighting tip.

    Cannon Spike, Giga Wing 2, GunBird 2 for Morrigan as my SHMUP picks!

    I only played a few (it doesn't mean it'll stay that way though), but out of those I've played so far, it's definitely Demolition Racer: No Exit. Being a huge fan of the PS1 version as a kid, I enjoyed every moment playing the improved Dreamcast version after so many years.

    I think the theme is "Break the Madness" by Cirrus. By far my most favorite song from the game soundtrack.

    Weren't faverit threads supposed to be banned

    Code Veronica/Marvel vs Capcom 2 were probably the ones I played the most and tie for 1st place.

    Second place would probably be Gran Turismo 2 with Bleemcast.

    Favourite DC game for me has to be the best tank combat game on console: Panzer Front. The game was a PS only one originally but over-ambitious and graphically compromised by that console's lack of power. Still a great game but on the DC, peculiarly a Jap only release, it is at its best graphically although even then far from as good as you'd want it to be.

    Despite likewise not being DC exclusives Soul Reaver, MDK2 and TR4 & 5 are also favourites simply because the games are good anyway but look at their best on the DC.

    As for a favourite DC game, originally a console exclusive, it would have to be SoulCalibur.

    Great choices, I never got to play Skies of Arcadia.

    Might try to get it working on Dolphin or Chankast at some point.

    Definitely Shenmue. That you're living Ryu's day to day life, down to an incredible amount of minutiae detail, still blows my mind, and some of these simulation-like aspects have yet to be rivalled in any modern game I've played to date.

    Fantastic list of games! I honestly never heard of the Dreamcast until I found it in a doctor's office and I played Sonic Adventure. Fast-forward a few years later when I started making money on my own, I had a bought a Dreamcast with games and accessories from eBay. This was at least 3 years after it was discontinued. Here were my favourite games;

    Phantasy Star Online.. I REALLY wish I had this game when the official server was still up. You can still play it on private servers.

    Someone else mentioned Grandia 2. I LOVED the first Grandia, but for some reason my save file got corrupted when I was at the near end of the game. When I saw this gem I played and didn't stop until I beat it. This game holds a special place in my heart for being one of the first games I actually completed. <3

    Fighting games were never as interesting to me as RPGs. Mortal Kombat and Super Smash Bros. series might hold my attention for a few weeks. But this game held my attention just a little longer for my teenage-self. If you're aware of DOA, you're aware of its game physics and why I only played it when I was alone in the house.
