    Same question as the PS2 post. I picked up a DreamCast the other week and have it hooked up to the 19" 4:3 TV in my bedroom, but was wondering which ones would might be worth picking up and playing on the big (wide) screen. I've heard "Rayman" does, but that it's not anamorphic. Any others?

    I played a demo of Toy Commander that was anamorphic, so I would assume the regular game is, too.

    Basically all the games I tried so far support my widescreen TV:
    - Alien Front Online
    - Crazy Taxi
    - Fur Fighters
    - Samba de Amigo
    - Sonic Adventure 2
    - Virtua Tennis
    I should add, though, that I connect my US DC via a European RGB Scart cable to my European WS TV. It just automatically fills the screen and I don't have to do anything. Pretty cool, if you ask me [​IMG].

    Wow, VT and crazy taxi are anamorphic? I did not know that...
    Id just thought it'd be all squished up, coz i dont see an option for 'wide' screen...
    I WAS gonna say Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2, F355 Challenge, and MSR, coz they all have a 'wide' option that squishes the image horizontally, and to make it look normal, you gotta reduce the height of the picture, meaning widescreen...
    i dunno...

    My Virtua Tennis doesn't have a wide option. The TV just stretches it out like it would a TV signal.

    But I could be blind because I don't see a wide option in MSR either.

    One of the best games for any platform, Rayman 2, supports 16 x 9 on the Dreamcast. Highly recommended.

    The WIDESCREEN mode in MSR is a secret.. you gotta beat one of the races with higher than a certain amount of Kudos, then you'll get the cheat...
    Once ou get that, go into the CHEATS menu, and choose widescreen...

    Nick - That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.... almost.
    Playing 2 player Tony Hawk stretched out worked really well. It almost felt like we each had our own screen.
