The Top 200 Dreamcast Games: Voted by you!


Happy 15th anniversary of the Dreamcast! The votes have been counted so now here is the final Top 200 Dreamcast games! Thanks to everyone who joined in on the voting!

Before we get started, some random facts about the final list:

- There is a total of 235 releases within this top 200: that's because in many case and game and it's sequel is one entry, and in the cases of a few, 3 or 4 games in the same series (NFL 2K, Pop n. Music) are one entry. The bottom 18 entries would have missed the list if I had not done this.

- Of those 48 were Japan only, 10 America only, 2 PAL only and were 11 indie releases.

- Release years are based on where they debuted.

- Of these 4 were released in 1998, 49 in 1999, 107 in 2000, 39 in 2001, 9 in 2002 and 20 in any year beyond that.

- Sega Smash Pack is not included, but Sega Swirl and Virtua Cop 2 from that collection are listed.

- I own 165 of the games featured, yikes!

Just a note: the article is a bit incomplete at the moment. All the poll positions are there but a few of the games do not have descriptions yet. I'm out all of today (in fact I'm celebrating the Dreamcast anniversary in style!) so I will be coming back to finish it off tomorrow.

So without further ado, beyond the jump is the complete list from last to first. Enjoy!

Dreamcast Top 200 poll is closed!


The Dreamcast games poll has been online since the American anniversary on the 9th of September and today the poll will close up for good, so get your votes in now while you have a chance! Keep an eye out for this blog tonight as we will be launching part 2 of this poll, in which you will have to pick games over the other that have an equal amount of votes. After today the games that make the top 200 will be set in stone but the order of them will be up to you! This new poll will open tonight and will be open until the end of Tuesday the 26th! That's only three days to get your votes on the order in!

Take note that some games are going to be combined to squeeze more games in. For example Sakura Taisen 3 + 4, Power Stone 1 + 2 etc. This is because their votes are very close to each other and will make the finished list far more interesting.

Happy voting!
