I don't give a shit if the PS2 ain't allowed here. This board is for old shit and that's cool with me. I like talking about retro games. As a matter of fact I am playing the Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 1 on my PS2 right now. Which has all kinds of comfy as hell classics like 1942, Forgotten Worlds, Final Fight, Commando, etc. I just think it's funny when Dreamcast fanboys get such a hate boner for the PS2. Maybe it's cause Sony wrecked Sega's shit and Sega fanboys are still salty about it.

I'll add some good ports from other systems:

--Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
--Gauntlet Legends (arcade perfect, four player, keeps all the cutscenes. Best version)
--Resident Evil 2 & 3: 2 has more content than any other version. 3 isn't better at all, sadly, but good enough if you want to keep everything on one system.
--Rayman 2.
--Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver has a much better frame rate on Dreamcast.

Yeah, basically. The audio was compressed quite a bit to make it all fit on one disk, but in my experience, 99% of gamers don't give a shit about audio quality. If you're playing it on an LCD, those have shit audio output anyway, so you likely won't even notice.

But even taking that into account, the improvements are worth it.
>lowered random encounter rate (increased gold/exp yield to compensate)
>bounty hunter bosses
>Piastol bosses

>more discoveries

Especially considering those extra boss battles are some of the most difficult and satisfying in the game, it's hard for me to justify playing the original version anymore, as much as I love the Dreamcast.
