I already have Sonic adventure 1 and 2 for GC, so what should I play? I was thinking Grandia 2, or Skies of Arcadia. Which one of those two are better? And what are some other games I should play?

Soul Calibur on DC is awesome, if you like fighting games, you'll love it.

Metropolis Street Racer is a decent driving game.

Chu Chu Rocket is just flat-out crazy.

I just realised how much I miss my old Dreamcast. I may have to get another one!

I liked Grandia 2 better. The story is cookie-cutter stuff, but the battle system is really cool. Also, Soulcalibur, Project Justice, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Street Fighter III, and a ton of other fighters.

I'd say that, as well. But I'd go with the first one, first. Because MvC 2 gets pretty dang crazy and hard to keep up with. Personally, I prefer the first one more just for that reason. But even if you prefer the 2nd one, I'd still recommend playing the first one first just to get the basics down. After you've gotten your feet wet with MvC 2, I highly recommend Resident Evil: Code Veronica and Draconus: Cult of the Wyrm for some more time-consuming games. Quake III: Arena and Unreal Tournament are great for multiplayer, if you have friends and extra controllers around as the online component of the games no longer work so well. And House of the Dead 2 is and excellent light-gun shooter if you can track down a Dreamcast gun.

Get a Dreamcast Arcade stick, the dreamcast controller is very mediocre with fighters.

get jet grind radio.. it's awesome:D

Pretty much any of the Capcom vs. games - or even any of the Capcom fighting games on the dreamcast - are freaking amazing. Skies of Arcadia is indeed rare and holds a lot of promise. Truthfully, my girl scored me a copy :D, but I've yet to play it. :o Even so, I also recommend picking up Space Channel 5. Simple game, but worth checking out. Rez would be worth it too, but will be ridiculously rare and expensive compared to simply getting the HD remake on XBLA. Nearly everything else I could think of, has been mentioned already.
