Which Dreamcast Games Still Matter?

by racketboy Thu Oct 12, 2006 8:46 pm

This question might be a little harder to answer as classic gaming aficionados, but what games for this system do you think are still worth playing to the average gamer?

Things to consider:
Has the game been ported/enhanced on a newer system?
Has a newer game in the same genre made it obsolete?
Does the graphics limit it?
How well have the graphics aged?
Is there something unique about the game?

Let me know what game for the console you think are still relevant in today's gaming market.

I start by nominating...
Power Stone
Virtua Tennis
Rez

I have a bunch more in mind, but i want to get your reactions.

Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram
Shenmue
Shenmue II (forget the Xbox version)
Soul Calibur
Jet Grind Radio
Cannon Spike
Sega Rally 2
Chu Chu Rocket (forget the GBA version)
Ecco (forget the PS2 version)
Grandia II (the only good version)
Samba de Amigo
Samba de Amigo Ver. 2000
Seaman

I'll leave it at that

I'm well aware, but the PS2 port isn't any better, nor is it very affordable...

Just to play Devil's Advocate, why should somebody want to play Soul Calibur when SC2 and SC3 is availible?

It's the Dreamcast showpiece. It's also the best version.

I'm with you on this one. I found SC2 on GC to be an improvement over SC1. But I don't have my Cube anymore, so I enjoy the first game just fine still.

I like Soul Calibur 1 best. While the later games improve graphics a little and add a couple more characters each, they're incremental enough to be Capcom Street Fighter 2 style upgrades at best, really.

I like DOA2 best on the DC, over the PS2 version as well. It has some charm.

But the real standouts are some of the shooters that have not been released since.

I rather like the whole customization aspect of SC3. I had loads of fun with that.
