    For racing: I've always liked MSR. If you've played Project Gotham it's identical.
    For RPG: Try Skies of Arcadia. It's probably the best true RPG on Dreamcast.
    Fighting games: The best is probably Street Fighter 3 3rd strike. SF 3 Double impact is also pretty good. Other than that, I play a lot of Soul Calibur, Last Blade 2, and Fatal Fury Mark of the Wolves.


    Dunno about snowboarding. Maybe they have SSX or something?

    I agree with Methos' suggestions. I remember quite enjoying Grandia II on the Dreamcast, though Skies of Arcadia is definitely better.

    In terms of fighting, I enjoyed Power Stone and Dynamite Cop, though they are not strictly beat em ups in the one on one sense.

    ive played a little of grandia 2 its good but ive played the first one first and it just made the second look like crap. i got capcom vs snk mf 2000 i enjoy that. ill look into all your suggestions ive heard great things from skies of arcadia (gamecube version) and powerstone.

    I recently picked up Power Stone 1 and 2. I really think if you're looking for a fighting game to go with one of those. It reminds me a little of Super Smash Bros.

    It basically is Smash Bros, just with different characters and in full 3D.
