10 games, 3 controllers. Anyway what games do you recommend? I am trying to track down a few RPG's as those are my favorites, I heard Rayman 2 was super good and Resident Evil code veronica.

Seriously, best sports game ever.

Also, you heard right about Resident Evil: Code Veronica.

get some 2d fighters. 3rd strike and the like. The Dreamcast killed it with those releases.

do you play any fighting games on xbox 360?

I have 2 dreamcasts still, great system, by the way, you can burn the games without any sort of modding to the system required at all. Probably why it died so fast.

I recommend:

RPGs:
Skies of Arcadia (great RPG)
Headhunter (really fucking cool game, kind of like a 3rd person shooter)
RE code veronica of course
D2 (kind of weird but cool)

sports:
Tennis 2k2 over virtua tennis
NBA 2k2
NHL 2k2
Tokyo Xtreme Racer 1/2 (its like a highway-racing RPG its quite addicting)

fighting games:
street fighter alpha 3
street fighter 3: 3rd strike
Guilty Gear X
King of Fighters (2k1 is the best imo)
marvel vs capcom 2


other: Unreal tournament (great 2/4player FPS)
Worms Armageddon / world party (if you dont know worms its AMAZING multiplayer turn based strategy game)

I remember playing a lot of NFL2k2. 
THPS2 was good too.  It had slightly better graphics than the Playstation version too.
Crazy Taxi was fun.  My brother liked to play DOA2 a bunch.

Play Shenmue 1 and 2 but be prepared to be super bummed the series never got a 3rd one. Such a good game easily one of my favorites, soooo much stuff to do. Also I'm not sure if you realize it but you can just find the games online and burn them to a cd here's the tutorial http://theisozone.com/tutorials/dreamcast/burning-and-backup/dreamcast-burning-cdi-2012-style/. Then here's the games to download http://theisozone.com/downloads/dreamcast/dreamcast-isos/. Good luck and man, am I jealous! I've had some amazing memories with the dreamcast, still bummed I sold it.
Any dude that hates on roller hockey hasn't played, and likely haven't played a sport in their entire life.

damn thats almost my childhood right there...

i guess noone has mentioned it because skate exists now but thps 2 for dreamcast was by far the best rendition of the game.
i also used to love crazy taxi, and this top down shooter called ikaruga

Dreamcast is the best!  Thanks for posting up that iso site.  I still have a ton of original games that I bought for my two dreamcasts (one US and one Japanese) when the games were $10 each.  I also got a bunch of japanese titles when I was stationed in japan, but I could never find the virtual on dual stick controller.  I'm going to go download the missing games from my collection now.  So stoked.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Power Stone 1 and 2 were very fun fighting games.

Grandia 2 is a pretty good RPG

House of the dead 2. If you can find one of those guns in working condition, it is the shit. It is still fun otherwise though.

That's what I got off the top of my head. Maybe Jet Grind Radio and Worms Armageddon too!

If you like wrestling, Giant Gram even though it is all japanese language.  I had a lot of fun playing Crazy Taxi, Project Justice, all the Resident Evils, and Seaman.  Can you even find a VGA adapter to hook it up to a lcd monitor?  It made games look so much better.
