List Rules Vote up the Dreamcast RPGs you most like. They do not have to be console exclusive.

The Dreamcast may have been Sega’s last console, but the best Dreamcast RPGs prove that Sega’s strength has always been making quality games. If you owned a Dreamcast at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few RPGs in your collection. There's something about role playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world.

Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain along the way are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Dreamcast RPGs of all time. Although it may not have been the best system, Dreamcast was responsible for bringing us some of the best RPGs, many of the franchises getting their start on the short-lived system.   

This list will feature the most popular and best selling RPGs that were released for Dreamcast. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This list features items like Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
