Top Nine Arcade to Dreamcast Dream Ports
By Gregory Oborne | October 12th, 2022
Thinking back it feels like the Dreamcast was particularly prolific in arcade porting; Soul Calibur, Crazy Taxi, all of those CAPCOM titles… one could argue the Dreamcast’s best games started in the arcade. After doing a very quick count though, only about 8% of the Dreamcast’s library are arcade ports (I counted 77). That sounds strangely small in number. Maybe it only felt like we were getting so many arcade games with the barrage of new game announcements that were happening.
At any rate, when the shocking announcement of the Dreamcast’s plug getting pulled reached us, all of those awesome games Eric and I had heard about in magazines were now canceled; many of which were arcade games.
