Shenmue 2

>> No.6236315


The Dreamcast is great for arcade-perfect ports of fighters and shooters but the controller is terrible for them. Invest in a DC-compatible arcade pad if that sort of thing interests you.

Otherwise look into SEGA's own library for the system, they released a lot of unique games such as Space Channel 5, Jet Set Radio, Shenmue, etc.

If you're a horror fan, the system has unbeatable ports of RE2 and 3, plus Code Veronica, along with the very unique exclusive Illbleed. Capcom supported the Dreamcast pretty well, and there's a couple good racing games on it as well.

If the idea of playing a long-defunct online game on a discontinued console appeals to you, it is still possible to play Phantasy Star Online on a Dreamcast and connect to the Internet through it. Look it up online and consider getting a DC-compatible keyboard.

Finally, it has an arcade-perfect port of The House of the Dead 2, which makes for a great experience if you can nab a compatible gun controller.

Wrong. The Dreamcast port of House of the Dead 2 is not arcade-perfect.

I have a small DC selection, some good ones. Half are DC essentials but I’m missing some reaalllll classics like crazy taxi and jet grind radio. If I would buy any more i’d get those two and quake III, starlancer, 102 Dalmatians, and -maybe- D2

The only angry one here is you. Using humor doesn't make a post a troll post. His post was more of a troll post by giving blatantly wrong information. My post corrected his post with facts, and had a small amount of humor. No need to overreact to every little thing.

Tony hawk games are great on dreamcast. Marvel vs capcom 2 is amazing. House of the dead 2, and Crazy taxi are arcade classics. Also would recommend sonic adventure. Soul calibur is awesome, and I have a lot of fun playing quake 3 arena splitscreen with my friends.

I felt ripped off for my parents because the Dreamcast library was so gay. The vast majority of it was arcade style trash and ultra grind-heavy JRPG weab shit. Surprisingly, one of the worst games on that system was something called Industrial Spy: Operation Espionage. I liked puzzle stuff growing up so I played the Myst games and Tomb Raider, so I thought I-Spy was going to be interesting. I could not have been more wrong.

This game is a must have! Project Justice, AKA Rival Schools 2! The sequel that I almost skipped on had I not paid any attention to the front cover artwork. What's crazy is that Capcom was actually putting in work for Sega Dreamcast. Power Stone series, Capcom vs series, etc.

They had to makeup for the lazy port of games they released for the Genesis.

If you like fighters, DoA2 and MAHVEL 2 should keep you satisfied. If you like arcade style games, Crazy Taxi should keep you more than happy. If you like batshit insane horror games, absolutely check out Illbleed.
Also some Dreamcast systems have non-existent antipiracy protection, to where all you need is decent image burning software and a basic CD-R.

Two words brotha.
Crazy. Taxi.
That game is so much fun and Crazy Taxi 2 is good too. CT is one of my favorite games in general. Other good DC pickups include the obvious stuff. Shenmue, SA1 and 2, Jet Grind Radio, and Skies of Arcadia are all pretty much must haves. If you REALLY want to do a deep dive into the DC library you can set up DreamPi and play games online again, in which case I strongly recommend PSO. Another good one is Samba De Amigo but the maraca controllers loose are roughly $60 and a CIB set is roughly $100 so only go for it if you'rd gonna gocus on being more hardcore with DC stuff after a while.

CT gets bonus points for having the original music and stores (pizza hut etc). Rereleases such as the one on steam have different music.

Wait are you serious? What retard at Sega thought to replace the iconic music in CT?? That's a shame.

>> No.6240910

I doubt anyone thought the game was better without the original music. It's just a licensing thing, same reason we'll never get a Jet Set Radio Future remaster.

>> No.6240923

I can live without a JSRF remaster. Microsoft's been good about backwards compatability so even if I decided to buy whatever their newest console is I could still play the original disc. I always liked the original though so maybe that's a me thing. Even though it's out of Sega's hands for Crazy Taxi it's still sad. I couldn't imagine that game without that soundtrack.
