2. Gran Turismo 4
3. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Vale
4. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
5. Taito Legends

Sega Dreamcast

1. Shenmue 2
2. Shenmue
3. Sonic Adventure
4. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
5. Metropolis Street Racer

Phantasy Star Online drops out of the top 5 because it was very dull in single player mode and I didn't want to unlock it to go online. I swapped it for Sonic Adventure 2, which is great!

Shenmue 2 is amazing. Even better than than the original. I don't intend to get it for the XBox even if I buy one because how will they transfer the original Shenmue game saves to it? It is a work of art on the DreamCast. The only down side is a rather poor quality conversion of Outrun in the arcade - it was arcade perfect on the Saturn 5 years ago.
