For your DC:

Jet Set Radio
Chu Chu Rocket! (Prepare to lose days at a time!)
Crazy Taxi
Daytona USA
Sega Rally 2
Oh, and Sega Bass Fishing. It's Hypnotic.

Also I've heard that Ikaruga is a very decent Shmup if you're into that.

You may want to give some guidence on the kind of game you like otherwise you'll get at least 500 titles between those 3.

3 essentials in my book for each system (not rpg's) are:

SNES:
Unirally - side on stunt racer, cracking stuff.
Super Mario World - self explanatory, my fave Mario game ever.
Axelay - fantastic shooter.

Dreamcast:
Powerstone - simply manic.
Jet Set Radio - great, with fab music.
House of the Dead 2 - amazing if you can get it with the gun.

Saturn:
Sega Rally - Brilliant conversion. Looks ropey, plays brilliantly.
Nights - Fun, fun, fun.
Doom - because its Doom.

I'm not the best person to ask about Saturn games, as I don't have many, but those ones are really good.

Snes
Super Ghouls n Ghosts - my favourite version - like even better than arcade

Street Fighter 2

DC
The South Park party game - if you have mates and about 4 controllers
Shenmue
Sega Rally 2

Saturn
Nights
Discworld
Tomb Raider
Sega Rally
Daytona
and dont miss - Parodius
Retro when it wasnt cool

For the DC, there are plenty of top noch Capcom beat em ups like Marvel Vs Capom 1 & 2, don't forget the Vs SNK ones too, also Super Streetfight 2 X Matching Service (Jap) & the Alpha 3.

The Megaman Games on the Snes are great too, they can cost a fair bit though!

Saturn - Sega Ages 1 is a must with Outrun, Afterburner and Space Harrier!
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

Saturn games can be a bit thin on the ground. You still cannot go wrong with Sega rally, although long left behind in the visuals race it is still fun to play especially with your mates. Sega Ages is a pretty fun conversion. For the collector I recommend Sonic Jam, a rarity which I now wish I hadn't sold, you can play the origanal 4 Sonic md games normally or with added exstras. Youu get on the disc what seems a like a walk around history of Sonic. There are a few good arcade conversions out there then you can enjoy, such as the Street fighter seris to name but a few

I played all 3 of those Saturn games yesterday.

Sega Rally - a bit of a duff really. Fun for 10 minutes though

Sega Ages (Vol1) - not that impressed. I know the Outrun is supposed to be the best home version, but it seemed abit jerky. Loved Space Harrier though.

Sonic Jam - Very good. Never played Sonic & Knuckles before.

Also played...

Manx TT - really good racing game
Nights into Dreams - Just don't get it. Overatted.

For the DC it has to be:
- Capcom vs SNK
- Street Fighter Alpha III
- Ikuaga.

- Metropolis Street Racer
- 18 Wheeler (no - really!)
- Some say Ferrari F355 is worth battling with. I tend to disagree! but if you like driving games.

Others worth looking at:

- Silent Scope is pretty good. (IMHO)
- Resident Evil code veronica is said by some to be the best pre-resident Evil 4 Resident Evil.
- Virtua Fighter 3Tb.

Sega Rally on the Saturn I really liked!

Is there actually anywhere that you can still play this online, like what has happened with Phantasy Star?
