Starter dreamcast games

Post by Zealous zerotype » Sun Sep 16, 2007 2:42 am

One of my friends has said she wants a dc and a store is having a sell on them for like 14 bucks so I figured I'd go ahead and get her one. She of course already knows certain games she wants to play, but I was wondering if any body could recomend some games that she might enjoy I know I'm kinda just saying list games, but have at it.

that's easy, but is she a complete game noobi and wants to play dreamcast to get her game back on or she just wants to see what the dc is?

If she is a noobi we will take a slower approach such as playing Crazy Taxi 1 and all the 2k games.

IF she just wants to check the console out we will play Crazy Taxi 2 and all the 2k2 games.

She is pretty into gaming
The games she wants so far are Ecco, Rez, and JGR.

edit: I'm thinking she might like bomber man online and a shump.

Ecco is a huge pain in the ass even for someone as intellectual and clever as I am with such games.

I'd recommend D2 and Jet Grind Radio of course.

- VMU

- Performance rumble pak (2x)

Games (all games except Grandia II include case and manual)

Are the accessories seperate from the games or is that included in the lot?

I'd like to recommend a few and go for:

Rayman 2 - excellent platforming with a nice sense of humour and cute graphics.

Sonic Adventure 1 or 2 - more adventure/platforming but in my opinion not as good as Rayman 2.

Virtua Tennis 1 or 2 - easy to pick up but with plenty of depth

Space Channel 5 - a good fun rhythm/memory game

If your friend like puzzle games then Bust A Move 4 (Puzzle Bobble 4) is good for that sort of stuff and Chu Chu Rocket is a good group game.

I'd also recommend Soul Calibur if she like fighting games and both House Of the Dead 2 and Confidential Mission are good fun if you can get a light gun (and she uses a CRT TV - to my knowledge, the gun won't work otherwise)

Shenmue 1 and 2 might appeal or maybe an RPG like Skies Of Arcadia?

Thanks everybody the games she decided to go with (so far)
Seaman (I'm letting her borrow my mic)
JoJos bizarre adventure
Soul Calibur
Crazy Taxi 2
I gave her 3 shumps, don't think she really digs em'
Skies of Aracadia
I'd give her sonic adv1/2, but she has them both on the gamecube.
I actually hadn't thought of Virtual Tennis, I actually need to get that game.
Ecco the Dolphin
Rez
JGR
Guilty Gear X

Awesome enough to become a Dreamcast classic and be known as one of the greatest rhythm games on the planet.

Also, I was a virgin until I met Juan's mom.
