    Hm... Power Stone would be a good choice, Nice Fighter (And Soul Calibur is a Fighting game , not a beat them up, Beat Them Up = Final Fights or Street of Rage) Marvel vs Capcom 2 awsome Fighter too , I heard a lot about Samba de Amigo, which i never played but it always in the top 10 Dreamcast game.

    Oh and for Manga/Anime games i would have to say the fighting game of JoJo Bizzare Adventures. Ikuraga should be a must play too.

    Cool cool toon (SNK dance game)

    The sequel to radilgy, KAROUS must be released this year (probably the last game of the dreamcast since sega does not manufacture GD-Rom anymore...)

    A lot of games got remade or sequels on other consoles (soul calibur, phantasy star, shenmue, resident evil code veronica, skies of arcadia to name but a few)

    I quite enjoyed that list of mine above as well as jet set radio, head hunter gets an honourable mention.

    that's a mighty fine list of games for the dreamcast, some memorable and fun games like Bangi-O from Treasure as well unique Sega titles like Rez. Fortunately I have pretty much all those titles and more. Suprised no one mentioned Street Fighter III, which is only available on the DC at the moment, iirc

    Well, New Generation and Second Impact are only available on Dreamcast. But Third Strike is playable on PS2 and Xbox in the Street Fighter Anniversary Collection. I've never played the Dreamcast version of 3S, but from what I hear the Anniversary Collection port is more arcade-accurate.
