Gonna have to complain a little about this poll....generally MOST games are Japanese, I think you mean best game that's associated with an anime, or something, going by the poll?

Well my favourite game of all time is probably.....FFVII (yeah, it's a common choice but umm...BLEH!) and that's Japanese, so umm, yeah. o_o

got to add another game : Ghouls and Ghosts on the megadrive!! I got the japanese version on saturday and was playing it most of yesterday again. I converted one of my megadrives so that it will play all region cartridges using Porl's Patented Conversion technique (tm). hehe 😄


Mr Deathy is right. Most games are japanese...you wouldn't think some where though.

p.s. if anyone has a PAL (uk) megadrive and wants to know how to convert it to play japanese or US games without using a converter just holla.. ;)

yuh since the DC doesnt require a special disc, like the ps1/2 or xbox any disc will do you just need the right boot up discs most rom discs come with a boot up. but basicly you just need the right codecs and you can even get the thing to work as a media player.

COOL!! ;) I've never looked into doing that with my Dreamcast. I just got it chipped so i could play imports.

Do you just download the Roms then burn them to a CD yourself or are you buying them?

download and burn, they are distributed as freeware, actually theres warnings at the startup that go something along the lines of "if you paid for this you got ripped off, find the person that sold it to you and get your money back!"

Are you talking about commercial roms? If that's what you have in mind, their distribution is totally illegal, unless you own the original cartridges/CDs. They are not considered freeware by any chance!

I voted "other". My favorite game at the this time would have to be Beatmania IIDX 7th Style. It's technically called a "DJ simulation" game, though I see it as "The friggin' best ever rythm game to grace the planet"... It's made by Bemani (the same people who make DDR), but it is MUCH better than DDR. (DDR is still awesome, though) At any rate, if you've never heard of it, download an emulator like BemaniaDX and a couple of songs and check it out!
