If there's just one fighting game you aim to get for the Dreamcast, I strongly recommend Marvel Vs. Capcom 2.
Agreed. Still pimping Garou and Soul Calibur 1, though.
Hang on. I just have an urge to hear this.
I'd get Soul Calibur or Project Justice over Mv C 2 honestly.
Ya don't need to pimp, man—I'm already a fighter nut and a recent convert to the Church of SNKology, so I'm probably gonna grab all the fighters I can get.
First thing I'm gonna do though, is get the parts to build an arcade stick.
(What I do wanna hear more about, are Survival Horror games, shooters, RP Gs, whether or not there's any nice 3D platformers, or even 2D platformers...)

Rayman 2? If you already don't have it for any other platform that is.
For some reason I feel like it inspired some of the Xbox's design, and it's downfall was what made room for Microsoft entry into what's been the big three for the last decade. It was an important bundle of developments that influenced design since, but itself never caught on in time. Also it marked Sega's downfall.

Dreamy was never much of a competitor with Sony or Microsoft because.... the library isn't very good.
If anything, it is the heir to the N64. And unlike Nintendo, Sega had only one cash cow franchise to lean on, and no side ventures or portables.
Don't get me wrong, there's a place for the Dreamcast just like there is for the N64. It's mainly for casual gamers like me. But by no means could it last in a ring with the two juggernauts.
It's weird seeing the Dreamcast described as "for casual gamers." I would think its got a niche audience by this point.
Honestly I think the problem is Sega didn't seriously stick with or back the system. They saw that the PS 2 was stealing their thunder and decided to pull the plug. They could've been a contender, but they were too demoralized by their previous defeats that they decided to just throw in the towel. And throughout the land, all the children cried for the god had left their world.
(Yeah, I'm a Sega fanboy and I'm proud of it)
Illbleed if you love Survival Horror, Dantes.
And a happy new year rolls in as I now finally have a second Dreamcast game, and it has turned out to be the game that justifies the entire console.
Here's a hint: its crazy and you drive a taxi ;).
For some reason though after anywhere from "immediately" to "an hour in" the game will bring up a message claiming a disc read error. Oddly, it'll still let me play, just some textures won't load up (so I wind up driving around in a great big void with inexplicable floating cars and people). I have no idea if this was the disc, the console, a mix of both, but I excessively cleaned both and that seemed to help the problem, though time will tell if its been fixed completely.
Necroing this thread because SEGA of Japan might be subtly announcing a Dreamcast Mini.
Essentially, SEGA of Japan is suddenly asking people to pick their favorite out of 5 variations of Sega Dreamcast.
If it has Crazy Taxi, they need to pony up for The Offspring.
Seriously. There is no point otherwise.
No. Sega have been openly talking about porting DC games to the Switch. This is nothing more than a poll to decide which games would do best.
I myself recently picked up a DC, and could not for the life of me figure out how to get my TV to accept a signal from an RF cable, so I've had to order a SCART cable which looks reputable. My console also didn't come with a VMS; I'm seeing a bunch of them on eBay in neon colours that proclaim they have never been opened, all for under €20, mostly from Poland. Does that seem reasonable to anyone else?
sorry for the necro but today marks the 20th anniversary of the Dreamcast's US launch
It's Still Dreaming, Baby!
Anyone here familiar with the Virtua Striker series? My most recent DC import is Virtua Striker 2 Ver. 2000.1 and for the life of me I'm having trouble controlling my players. I'm not big on sports games and this game is supposed to be more arcade-like, but it seems like the game is choosing which players to pass the ball to rather than accepting any of my directional inputs. I'm playing on an arcade stick if that bit helps, since apparently the game doesn't use the analog stick...

20 years already? Time flies. If only Sega would do a plug-n-play for the Dreamcast instead of rereleasing the Genesis for the 40th time.
That'll never happen for a multitude of reasons, but it's nice to dream...
From what I heard, the new Genesis mini is legit, not another one of those shoddy At Games clones!

Sega actually made this new Mini in-house, which is good, but why it has Genesis VF 2 and not Truxton is an annoyance.
Hey, at least no one has tried emulating a Saturn mini. That would be a programming nightmare.

... someone else cares about Truxton? Huh.
I tend to enjoy shooters for nostalgia sake, although I won’t front and say I’m particularly good at them.
I mean the Japanese version apparently got MUSHA. That would have been great.
