It’s worth checking out Metropolis Street Racer and F355 Challenge if you’re into driving games. Also Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX was really nicely done.

I loved my Dreamcast, such a pity it couldn’t be developed further

Test Drive Le Mans is excellent as well for circuit racing.

Don’t forget about Star Wars Episode 1 Podracer!

Oh nice, I hadn't heard of Dreampipe! I'll have to check it out. I mostly just play DC games using an emulator for convenience, but sometimes I feel the urge to use the actual system.

What are you using to connect it to the TV? I have a Dreamcast VGA box from forever ago, and then I bought a VGA-to-HDMI converter. Is there a better setup nowadays?

My TV has AV input that I use for my consoles.

isn’t dreamcast supposed to be in 4x3?

VanHalbgott@lemmus.org on 14 Jan 2024 15:17 collapse

My TV is set to a wider ratio for AV inputs.

You should be able to change the aspect ratio with your remote!

We played a lot of PSO on the Dreamcast but my true love was Armada

I’m sorry I ever let mine go. It was a great emulation platform, and I ran all kinds of retro games on it. I also miss Skies of Arcadia, which I’ve always felt was underrated.

Fucking awesome. I love my Dreamcast, but it stopped reading discs recently :/

If you care to spend the money they do make optical drive emulators. These will trade an optical drive for an sd card. Kind of like adding an everdrive to a cart systems.

Oh, that sounds awesome! I think that the general aesthetic that Dreamcast games have is unmatched, probably would be the one system I mod.
