    House of the Dead 2 had the best boss battles especially when you have the light gun, that giant welding chainsaw dude was such a bitch to kill when I was young

    I loved Shenmue. An incredible open world game. Apparently Yu Suzuki in on the verge of securing the game's rights from Sega, so that he can make the third and final installment of the game. I always hated that they didn't manage to get the 3rd game out, but if Suzuki gets the rights, we'll see it for sure.

    Most of the Sonic games were of course excellent.

    There was an ECW game that was pretty cool. Can't remember which one it was though.

    House of the Dead 2 with the light-gun was also a favorite of mine.
    That would be...

    There were a tonne of great shmups for Dreamcast, if you're into those sorta games. Ikaruga and Gigawing come to mind as being especially awesome.

    My Dreamcast model could read games that were burned onto a CD-R(*), so I actually used the console sporadically well into the late noughties. I know there were still homebrew games and arcade ports being released for the system as late as 2009, but I'm not sure if the whole DC community is quite as active as it once was.

    Nonetheless, my fondest memories of the Dreamcast is playing Chu Chu Rocket online, which I managed to get for free by logging onto the Sega website. The console was also my first shot of the internet as well, since our family computer didn't have a modem at the time. I remember going onto the in-built chatroom and being confused about why I was being called an a/s/l.

    (*) - All or most of the earlier models could, I believe. It was before they changed the colour of the spiral from orange to blue, or something like that? I don't really remember how it works. I discovered it by complete accident though.

    I still have my Dreamcast with over 400 (copied) games. The ease of pirating games was probably a major contributor in why it failed as a console. But it definitely deserves it's place as a console cult classic.

    I wouldn't say that the Dreamcast failed as a console. It was a pioneer in the consoling world IMO. Pirating issues aside, it was a fantastic console.

    The Dreamcast was great, its just unlucky for Sega that the Playstation and N64 came out around the same time.

    Yeah I remember that bad boy! There was also one dressed as a postman (the first boss if I remember correctly) that was a real bitch!

    It wasn't really the N64, it was the PS2 launch that knackered it.

    Yep. And the fact that the PS2 had an inbuilt DVD player and backwards compatibly.
