Dreamcast Buyer's Guide (Home)

So thinking about Dreamcasting? Wondering what games are still worth spending money on? Here's a quick list I made to guide you into the wonderful world of the Dreamcast. This list follows NSTSC/U and PAL releases, with the import list to follow in my next post.

As a general rule and outside of Daytona USA and some other rare exceptions, games that that were online-based are just not worth getting anymore and you should just avoid them. Also, the scores are meant to be for what games are now, not what they were when first released.

EDIT: Note that the scores are from a buying perispective, i.e: 0-5 may not be worth purchasing 5-10 worth purchasing still.
