putting my flame suit on ... I dare to ask

Those with a Dreamcast what games are you still playing on that system? The reason I am asking is because I think by now there is about not one single game for the Dreamcast that has not been ported or remade. I'd really love to play the system but there seems to be a drought of exclusive games.

I was shocked to learn that Sonic Adventures 2 was on PSN and Shenmue 1&2 was getting an HD version. I know that Dreamcast excels in Fighting games and Shmups but I am guessing that those 2 genres they either have games that have been ported, remade with better graphics, or a newer bigger better version has been released.

So I would like to hear from you what games that are still worthwhile that is exclusive to the Dreamcast?

I know some people will always prefer to play games on their original systems for the nostalgia's sake (Which I do with the N64) but for me its like buying Thriller album on tape(originally released on media) or downloading it over iTunes which has better sound quality and more convenient to play in my ipod,car, and PC and easier to backup and save from wear and tear.

There's actually a bunch of DC games that never got ports.

Project Justice comes to mind immediately.

It's also worth noting that many of those future ports simply don't run as well as they did on the Dreamcast.

Where'd you hear about Shenmue I/II HD? I remember talk about it over a year ago, but nothing coming of it. Is there actual confirmation or is it still just speculation and wishful thinking?
