10 Essential Games to load first

21 Jun 2020, 17:52

I know MODE will allow everyone to dump full sets on a hard drive, but for the sake of discussion what will be the first 10 games you put on to play?

Here's my Saturn list:

Burning Rangers
Cotton 2
Cotton Boomerang
Game Paradise
Guardian Heroes
Keio Flying Squadron 2
Nights Into Dreams
Radiant Silvergun
Saturn Bomberman
Soukyuu Gurentai Otokuyou

I'm getting this specifically for Dreamcast.

1. Illbleed
2. Soul Calibur
3. Space Channel 5
4. Sonic Adventure 2
5. Crazy Taxi
6. Jet Grind Radio
7. Mars Matrix

This will be the (hopefully) final mod on a Dreamcast that is pushing $500 in mods and upgrades.

That's a pretty killer set of import SHMUPS you got going on there. Did you mean Symphony of the Night instead of Dracula X? I do believe Dracula X was PCE-CD exclusive.

Dracula X is the name of that series of games. They are linked. And if you want to get technical, on Saturn it's not called Symphony of The Night. It's Nocturne in The Moonlight.

Those aren't imports for me, though...

The Japanese title for all versions of what is known outside of Japan as Symphony of the Night is 悪魔城ドラキュラX月下の夜想曲 and here's a relatively low resolution picture of the Saturn version minus the obi, but it works.
