    Post your essential (favourite) Sega Dreamcast games in this topic and they'll be added to the list, for others to refer to when deciding which game to play.

    If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

    You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.

    The three categories are: 10+ Essentials List, 5+ Recommended List, 3+ Noteworthy and Others

    Shenmue
    Phantasy Star Online Ver. 2

    edit: instead of adding PSO Ver. 2 as a different game, why not just put it on to the already voted for PSO?
    Ver. 2 is really the better game, including everything from the first game and more.

    +1 Sonic Adventure 1+2 (Duh.)
    +1 Sonic Shuffle (The equivalent of Mario Party, incredibly addictive)
    +1 Chu-Chu Rocket (Great for multiplayer parties. I assure you, a fist fight will occour after a few games)
    +1 Soul Calibur (Duh.)
    +1 Unreal Tournament (Underrated on the system, and I don't know why - it's quite pleasant)
    +1 Quake 3 Arena (Duh.)
    +1 Phantasy Star Online/Ver.2 (Duh.)
    +1 Omicron/The Nomad Soul (One of the best action/adventure games I've ever played. I mean, you'd expect that kind of quality from Quantic Dream)
    +1 Space Channel 5 (Up! Down! Up! Up! Chu! Gotta love this game, it's so surreal it's fun)
    +1 Resident Evil: Code Veronica (Probably the first RE game that was made in full 3D and did it "right" unlike Survivor)
    +1 MDK 2 (Duh. That game's epic, what's more to say?)
    +1 Soul Reaver (Raziel is *the* most awesome wraith in the universe. If you dare to dispute that, I will personally suck your soul out)
    +1 House of the Dead 1/2 (Awesome railshooter, simple as that)
    +1 Silent Scope (Same as above)
    +1 Half-Life (Although playing it on the PC makes more sense, do try the DC version aswell)

    That'd be it... for now... Gotta

    Street Fighter Double Impact (Before Street Fighter 4's ugly 3D characters)
    House of the Dead (four player was freaking awesome)

    reasons to actually get a DC:
    *one of the few DC-exclusives left, now that JSR is coming to 360
    **Because DC is basically Naomi, this is the closest to the arcade version you can get, there is a big gap in high scores because the PS2/GC/Wii versions have framerate issues. Don't know about X360
    ***superior to PS2 version, inferior to PS3 unless you can get one of the DC's super rare arcade sticks
    ****there is actually a superior PS2 enhanced port called TXR0, but suffers because of wonky dual-shock 2 button-pressure feedback implementation, advise all DC owners to play this version

    Time Stalkers was pretty cool. Less for the story and more for both the cameos and how hardcore you could break the game.
