Puzzle is great too though, I could easily make a top 5. Mr. Driller, Puyo Puyo Fever, Puyo Puyo 4, Puzzle Bobble 4, Chu Chu Rocket. Honestly I could keep going too, but I really like puzzle games. I'm not delusional enough to compare the library to PS1/2, SNES, Genesis or PCE but I think I could get to 10 in some genres. Fighters and shooters easily (these are THE reason I've never purged out Dreamcast completely even bitd). Not really RPG of course, especially if you only play US released games, there is next to nothing of any quality there except Skies and Lodoss War. Then there are some sweet goofy games like Jet Set and Napple Tale.
And I mean, @DefaultGen is right, you can play a lot of the library elsewhere. I can't argue that. I'll take VGA and the Dreamcast controller for most of them. And as for fighters, my stick is already compatible with Dreamcast so I can't see ever switching those.
Completely agree that all consoles are full of crap games, there is a LOT of crap out there.
