Best game ever for the Sega Dreamcast console, as per usual i will tot up the totals and edit the first post with the current standings every couple of days or few posts.

Feel free to vote for up to 10 games, these will be awarded points from 1-10 based on the position you enter them in, so to avoid moaning later this will apply from top to bottom, depending on the number of games listed i may include a nicer looking separate result thread later.

Obviously we will probably end up with one of these for the other consoles/computers too, argh you have been warned!! :D

Now there's one i'd forgotten about, another class game that.

Missed record of lodross war off my list as well and i spent many an hour on that too, i could think of a dozen more titles worthy of inclusion, so many great games on a vastly underrated console.

When you look at wii graphics and some of the best dreamcast graphics there isn't a lot in it. The wii has a 2meg frame buffer and 1meg texture cache where as the dreamcast has 8meg dedicated to graphics over twice as much. Its tile rendering gpu also saves a lot of bandwidth and memory issues. When you look at shenmue so rich in textures your looking at something truly impressive for the time. A truly fantastic console and technically well ahead of its time.

Yeah the DC was a fantastic console and it's a real shame that it failed. I guess Sega only have themselves to blame though. The marketing was poor, the Saturn failed against the Playstation (especially in the west) and they failed to get some of the big software houses and franchises on board (EA being the highest profile absentee).

There's no getting away from the fact that it was a superb console for the day and was technically better than the much hyped PS2. I guess it just shows what marketing can do!

This is a hard decision as so many great games were released in such a short period of time. Personally it's my favourite console and picking a top 10 is very difficult. I have many DC games and often go through periods of playing one game, then move to another, thus changing my favourites. At this point in time my top 10 are:

1 - MSR
2 - Soul Calibur
3 - Shenmue
4 - Resident Evil: Code Veronica
5 - Virtua Tennis
6 - Samba de Amigo
7 - Ikaruga
8 - Quake 3 Arena
9 - Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

Ikaruga is on the list twice

Propellor area is there and it was never officially released - which means alot of people probably hasnt played it and Border down/under defeat arnt mentioned which means people havent had a chance to play them either

Border down and under defeat are certainly top 10 - top 20 material

under defeat on Youtube

speed to 2:45 on the clock and watch the attack on the battleship - just amazing

my top 10 would be:

1. Shenmue 2
2. Jet set radio
3. Under defeat
4. Samba de Amigo Version 2000
5. Streetfighter 2 X for matching service
6. metropolis street racer
7. Rez
8. Powerstone
9. Phantasy star online
10. Soul Calibur

So it was thanks for that.

I don't care i'm only interested in entering the votes, if only one person played it and wants to vote for it that's fine.
