22 brilliant Dreamcast games doomed to die

With the end in sight, these ingenious efforts didn't stand a chance

As with Rayman, Maze Madness is a multiplatform release that performed best on Sega’s ailing console. Gameplay was simple as can be (run around Pac-Man mazes eating pellets and avoiding ghosts), but there was enough map diversity and charming music to make this feel like more than “Required Pac-Man Release #48.”

As “serious” gamers it’s easy to ignore releases like this, as Pac appeal is so broad it may almost count as a “casual” title. Oh, it’s worlds easier than half of the games on this list, but that’s part of the draw – it’s a laid back, just-for-fun trip when alone, and a remarkably addicting mainstay with another friend or two.

Current value: Sealed copies start at $30 (no freaking way) and one guy’s ready to let it go for $8, a much more realistic total.
