I recently got a NOS Dreamcast Mouse so Confidential Mission is probably my 9/9 game this year. Strangely, it doesn't list mouse compatibility anywhere, but it works great from my limited testing the other day.
I grew up in a tiny town that had no major distributor of any kind. Wal-Mart was all there was and it was 2 towns over. Just so happened I went on a trip with a friend's family on launch day to a larger city and while at the mall we tracked down a demo station at a game shop.
Got to play Ready 2 Rumble Boxing and it blew my goddamned mind. The fidelity on the animations and character models were just on another level. The sort of thing you'd only see in arcades and probably cost a dollar for 90 seconds of play.
Terrible quality photos below of what I think is my collection at this point, but you get the idea. Beyond that, I have two DCs ( US + Jpn), two light guns, keyboard, mouse, BBA, one set of Samba de Amigo maracas (sold one set + game many years ago), two VGA adapters, numerous VMUs, and random other stuff. Also had the karaoke unit, but sold that as well.
Broke my heart when the Dreamcast died. Sega's final console, but one of their most daring, with a library of games that felt both familiar and unique. And good lord, don't get me started on Phantasy Star Online, the game that truly introduced me to losing hundreds of hours of my life to online virtual worlds.
Sorry for the low quality pictures, I'm keeping all my discs in binders while I'm at uni so I've cropped in on an old picture of my game shelf. I think the only gamed missing from that picture are Crazy Taxi 1 and Shenmue 2. The slightly folded spines are Gunbird 2 and Sonic Adventure.
I don't have a massive Dreamcast collection but the games I do have are some of my favourite of all time, would love to get my hands on a few more gems.
I remember bugging my mom to go to the mall in the middle of hurricane Floyd so I could trade in a bunch of games to get this. We didn't have school because of the rain and I needed something to do lol
Haha... I was thinking back to what the real startup sound was before I hit the bottom part of the post. I ended up putting tape over my VMUs to dull the tone. Wasn't perfect, but is was cheaper than replacing those CR2032s all the damn time.

Oh shit, didn't even register that today was 9/9! The Dreamcast is still my favorite game console of all-time. Definitely need to play some Dreamcast when I get home today! Maybe I'll pickup my Skies of Arcadia play-thru. That game looks so damn good over VGA.
