List of 60 fps Dreamcast Titles

At the beginning of the Dreamcast’s invention, hardcore gamers and game marketers decided that the new benchmark for video game imagery was the new, smoother level of 60 frames per second. It is pretty much agreed that gaming at 60 fps also makes visuals appear smoother and helps in the overall transition of animations, and for reflex-based games such as shooters, driving, action titles, and fighting games, a higher frame rate is essential.

For example, in a game of Street Fighter III a few missed frames could be the difference between a combo landing, or not. Therefore, while during the previous generation games mostly ran he lower standard of 30 fps it soon became apparent that if the Dreamcast was going to offer a truly, next generation, arcade experience as the company intended, then it would need to ensure that games could be presented in a 60 frame refresh rate. It’s a testament to the company's efforts that a large majority of Sega's first party titles for the Dreamcast were able to be played at this speed, especially considering thatmany modern day titles continue to fail to offer such a feature.

Games like Guilty Gear X would have been painstaking to produce in 60fps, think of all the animation cells!
 
Below is a list kindly supplied by fellow Dreamcast enthusiast, YouTuber , Twitter user, Dreamcast-talk.com member, Twitch gamer, and general social media mogul, pcwzrd13, who along with other forumites from the aforementioned website were able to come up with this comprehensive list of Dreamcast titles playable in glorius 60 fps. It is obviously still a work in progress and so please leave a message if you see any discrepancies or games missing from these lists!
