|My modest collection of CIB games...|
Most of these games were bought at full price during my most irresponsible of credit card days and include 38 boxed, near-mint UK titles as well as another 14 boxless discs/intructions, and even one US import I bought many moons ago but never got around to playing. I know, I know, but I hope to change that soon! Quite a sizeable part of my collection consists of racing games (probably my favourite genre on the DC) but there's also a few 2D fighting games, and even some of those new fangled 3D adventures (including Shenmue), and there's nary a sports game in sight (okay, Tee Off is a golf game but it's a one-off, and it's great too, so it doesn't count!).
Oh well, I suppose I can just use this as an excuse to start some of my fave games from the beginning again. On the racing front there's the aforementioned Speed Devils as well as another I spent a huge amount of time with, Sega GT. Capcom's fighting games are always great fun (not to mention challenging for an unskilled oaf like me), especially Third Strike. Then again, thinking about it, I could make use of my DC steering wheel and arcade stick respectively for these two genres, but that means finding them first and guess where they are... That's right, buried behind a tonne of junk in my old room at my parent's house!
I guess I should also use this opportunity to finally play some of the titles I never got around to such as Shadow Man, Soul Reaver, Skies of Arcadia, and all the rest of those lengthy action adventures. I could even buy a few more titles I always wanted like Silver, Fur Fighters, Slave Zero, Rez, Fighting Vipers 2 and various others. Anyone else have any fine suggestions for games I might've overlooked or unfairly dismissed? It's good to get back to Sega's finest anyway. Ah, Dreamcast, however long it's been, it was too long...
