Several arcade-perfect ports of fighting games and shooters, the best versions of some PS1 survival horror games (in terms of graphics and content), cool racing games, a handful of action-adventures that haven't been ported elsewhere (like Shenmue and D2), and the original Phantasy Star Online, which can still be played online on private servers through the console.

However if you are at all interested in the arcade ports, fighters and shooters, you need to invest in the Dreamcast arcade pad because the standard controller is awful.

- SA 1+2 since they're more stable and better-looking than most post-DC ports
- Jet Grind Radio if you're a fan of Yappie Feet

- Soul Calibur

- Samba de Amigo if you're willing to pay $40 for maraca controllers
- Seaman series
- Boot Disc of something like Utopia, since many DC games are dramatically cheaper if you buy the Japanese version

I would not recommend burning your own games when you don't have to since CD-Rs put a lot more wear on the disc drive than proper discs, and badly burned games are a relatively fast way to make your Dreamcast into a glorified clock.

They're also a glitchy messes with an uglier lighting system. There's a reason why people went through all the trouble to literally make mods to try and add DC shaders back into the Steam version.

>Jet Grind Radio if you're a fan of Yappie Feet

Yappie Feet is not in the HD re-release, it also happens to be one of the better music tracks in the game

>It's been on literally six systems. Go fuck yourself.

Yes, and the DC version remains the tournament standard for a reason.

>Other systems.

It's literally the only option for a physical release for SC1.

>What?

Capcom shmups that never got ported off of DC. They also are cheaper than some of the other big DC-exclusive shmups like Mars Matrix or Border Down.

>Meme game.

You're welcome to your own opinion, but 'meme games' do tend to add a lot of color to the respective consoles they get released on. OP can always just watch a gameplay video to decide if it's not for him.

>Are you fucking kidding me? One of this system's perks is a boot disc? You're fucking retarded.

As >>4571168 mentioned, I misread the question slightly, thought the advice about the boot disc still stands. DC collecting right now is basically a less insane version of Saturn collecting if you live outside of Japan.

It's one of the best games I've ever played. I like vaporwave music. Therefore I like Jappy jappy zen game where you just walk around talking about chinese people.

Idk maybe it's just nostalgia but I just spent >$100 on a dc and shenmue only to play that so hopefully it's more. I just have some kinda feel about it because during one of the last weekends I spent with the girl I might've loved she was staying at her neighbor's house while they were on vacation and she invited me over and we rummaged through shit until we found a dc with only shenmue (but no memory card) so we played it for like 6 hours straight and laughed a lot and fucked each other

Donald Duck Goin Quackers (it's on a bunch of systems, but again, DC is best)

You don't have to buy it, I think emulation of the system is probably very good now. However, if you do not like Sega system styled games, like arcade, racers, shooting, fighting, light-gun, and strange quirky stuff, it may not be for you. I like it a lot as it was really fun in its day, as I loved the Saturn.

Don't mind the old pic, I got the GDemu, but never installed it because I am either too lazy or broke to get someone to 3D print me its tray.

First of all, this is /vr/, where most people prefer playing on original hardware

Secondly, the problem with all those ports after the DC went under is that they were spread out across like 12 different platforms. Why buy all those consoles to play minimally improved versions at best when you can play all of them on a single Dreamcast?

Plus it still has exclusives that never got ported, like Record of Lodoss War, Frame Gride, Blue Stinger, Maken X, etc

I wouldn't jump to conclusions. Talk about CRTs and consoles is very regular but there are also loads of threads about emulators, fpga systems, virtual console and clones. Even if the latter group gets hounded by the former it's not like anyone has taken numbers.

Then there are factors like the system in question you have to take into account. All the retropie kids won't play anything further than SNES on it, but might have a real N64 or dreamcast.

CRTs are getting very scarce around here and it just takes one minor incident for one of my consoles to stop working. This just isn't a sustainable hobby in the long term.

I used to have a Dreamcast with the gun controller and House of the Dead 2. It was such a blast the gun was super accurate and nice and heavy.
