    Please post the 'must have' games that would be a crime not to have for Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, Xbox and GBA?

    I've got plenty of unfinished games and games I should've played...I figure that I could kill some time until the wave of next gen boxes arrive! :twisted:

    Add those to the list:

    DC:
    Grandia 2 (Best RPG, no matter the platform. [Ok didn't play Fable])

    GBA:
    Mario Golf Taodstool Tour

    NGC:
    Bio Hazard 4 (Resident Evil 4) [Not yet released but sounds like a hit]


    I wouldn't recommend any FF, they are way too boring, same dated gameplay since FF7, when it first came it was fine, but now...

    PS2
    Ratchet & Clank series
    Jak & Daxter series
    Sly Cooper (I haven't played Sly 2 yet)
    Metal Gear Solid 2 (even though its story causes a sharp, stabbing pain in my head)

    Multiple platforms
    Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

    If I had to choose one game, I'd say R&C: Going Commando. Up Your Arsenal is going to be even better, judging by the demo.

    Thanks for all the above suggestions...no doubt I'll end up getting the games missing from my collection! :p

    I notice I have Ikaruga missing from my collection and I fancy an old school schump right now...which version is recommended, the GC or the DC version :?: Thanks...

    Whichever costs the less, I believe they are identical.

    They are identical, but the GC version has some extra features/modes.
