Crazy Taxi and Chu Chu Rocket for a start..

To be honest there are a few like Radiant Silvergun that are a collectors dream.

Love mine! It's seriously close to my favourite console, along with the Megadrive.

Loads of great seu's on it, mostly japanese, but they are worth tracking down, Under Defeat, Ikaruga, Giga Wing 2 and Border Down spring to mind.

Too many other great games to list here, still cant believe the last official game was in March 2007! thats nearly 10 years it was officially supported, unofficially games are still coming out, so far 11 releases with 2 more planned for this year, have you guys seen Gun-Lord and especially Sturmwind? They look stunning (well i know The Laird will have ;)

i've only just started my Dreamcast collection, but some great info below - especially about new games.

usual suspects so far: Crazy Taxi, Powerstone, MSR

(Are there any cheaper, less cult Dreamcast games that are fun to play but are common - I see stuff like HeadHunter about a bit - but don't just want to buy fillers for my collection - but I am open to the idea of fun
games that aren't perfect)

The best thing about the Dreamcast is that they'll play back-ups of games (most of them anyway).
Ultimately this was a bad thing at the time but it's great for trying out some of the
rarer stuff.
I still buy original DC games but if it's going to be a more expensive purchase
I can DL it and try it out first.

Anyway, regardless of this, these are my favs..
Shenmue 1 & 2
Metropolis Street Racer
Virtua Tennis 1 & 2
Matt Hoffman's Pro BMX
Daytona USA 2001
Jet Set Radio
RE Code Veronica
Soul Calibur
Under Defeat
Ikaruga
Rez

Just had another thought. It's not exactly a "must have" because to some,
it'll seem the worst game ever but.........Tokyo Bus Guide is superb.

I played a train driving game on the PS3 and I actually thought it was really good!  :o
