    So, recently I bought a Dreamcast. I don't have very many games for it. These are the good ones I have : Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Crazy Taxi 2. Ray Man 2, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, and I've tried Skies of Arcadia. Any suggestions for good games? I like RPGs and Adventures.

    Also, I checked the essentials topic and there is nothing there...

    Whoever started the thread hasn't actually updated the list but if you read through the posts themselves you'll find peoples suggestions. [​IMG] I didn't really play any RPG/Adventures on it except Record of Lodoss War. Should really grab more but prefer the SNES/Saturn for my RPG games. Can recommend some other games from other genres if you want though.

    Thanks! It would be great if you could recommend some fun games. They don't have to the genres I stated on the first post, those are just my favorites.

    Not a problem! And congrats on picking up an excellent console. It's a shame Sega screwed up with the Saturn so badly that it caused the death of the Dreamcast before it really got going. It's a damn fine machine with some outstanding games on it.

    One of my favorite RPG on the Dreamcast has to be Segagaga, but the only problem is that it only in Japanese. I got around it though and used a guide that led me though the dialogue.

    Last Blade 2 is also pretty sweet.

    As for RPGs and adventure games, can't go wrong with Shenmue.
