Then Dreamcast will be next. I was originally thinking of N64 when I came up with the idea. But the NES will be an interesting snapshot

I'd be curious to see someone's Genesis/MD list. It seems like the Genesis has had ports and compilations just about every year or so for the past twenty years.

So many of the DC’s best games are arcade ports, and the remainder were often ported to other systems. The only good, “true” DC exclusive I could think of was Seaman, but even that received a PS2 port in Japan. Accordingly, I can’t think of any DC games for this list!

This is true, but there are still a ton of first- and third-party games that never made it off the system. Moreover, the system has an extensive library, and I suspect I could come up with a lengthy list of solid exclusives.

Toy Commander is a true DC exclusive, but there are a few others.

the DC was basically completely mined of its best titles at least 3-4 years ago: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=50890

I feel games that did a good job integrating the VMU can still count as somewhat exclusive. I'm playing the GCN Sonic Adventures right now, and the GBA integration is still different from the VMU. For one, VMUs were a lot easier to carry around. But overall, it's similar, so maybe that's not a great example. I'm not up-to-date on the later ports. Maybe they send chao to an app on your iPhone for similar integration. I guess I just really liked VMUs.

True. I struggled with this too. The DC versions of some games have exclusive content, features, etc. (The DC version of Daytona USA has a lot of extra content, for example.) At what point do all of those extra features make the game an exclusive? (Is Daytona USA 2001 it’s own game? Or, is it just a really, really enhanced port?)

Maybe this is controversial but Carrier on DC doesn't entirely suck for a clunky horror title.
