Default DreamCast game suggestions?

So... The Sega DreamCast was actually the first game console since the NES to actually get me interested in buying game consoles.... Unfortunetly, durring it's entire life span I never really was in a position to afford one, thus I never did end up buying one (going x-box much later on)....

For whatever reason, I ended up on ebay today and looked up prices on dreamcasts... Turns out I could get one with AV cables, power chord and a couple of controllers fully tested as functional and including 30 day warrentee all for $30... So I bit and soonish I should have a dreamcast... What I don't have, are games or an idea of what games to buy... So, any idea's on unique/fun titles for the system? There seem to be a good selection on ebay for under $5.

Try to get the VGA cable if you can...and then get a converter to component. The DC library is 480p. Yeah, way ahead of it's time.

Second, the Resident Evil titles...RE 2, RE 3, and RE Code Veronica are fantastic. The RE ports are the best versions out there. They beat the GC version, because everything is already unlocked. That's a huge plus.

Umm, I recommend Shenmue 1, Jet Grind Radio, Skies of Arcadia, Sonic Adventure 1, Soul Calibur, Power Stone 1 & 2(you'll be pissed they didn't continue it), Marvel Vs Capcom 1 & 2, and Toy Commander.

There's some others but I'm having a hard time remembering them. There was some high quality stuff released for the DC.

*whispers* You can actually download Dreamcast games if you know where to look. At one time it was necessary to use a separate boot loader but the groups that released them onto the interwebs were quickly able to include the bootloader onto the game image itself. Use Alcohol 120% in RAW-DAO mode et voila...

If you can manage to find the keyboard there's always The Typing Of The Dead Although that came out for the PC as well.
