    I was going through my stuff and pulled out my Saturn and its games. I played a few times and I am still in love with it. Plus, what system had a better CD player interface? I also plugged some of my games into my PC CD-ROM drive and ripped the songs from the games and burned em to CDs. Instant game soundtracks. Boy I love my Saturn.

    Saturn is definitely still cool as long as you've got VF2, NiGHTS, and Daytona. And do whatever you can to get a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga; it's absolutely worth it.

    Fighters Megamix, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Radiant Silvergun, Cotton 2 and the above mentioned games by others. All worth playing.

    Indeed. I guard my Panzer Dragoon Saga closely and I play Guardian Hero's and Last Bronx religiously. I never saw the appeal to Nights though, Burning Rangers is also close to my heart.The Saturn was the victim of the ultimate injustice...

    Saturn is great. I just recently baught myself a used one from Ebay. It was well worth it. Most people think Im crazy, because it went down so soon. But I play for the Quality. Not the success of the system.

    It's a sad thing that the system that caused Sega's major downfall in the US and Europe was probably the best system they ever made.
    Keio Yuugekitai is good too, if you can get ahold of it. As is all of Shining Force 3 and the original Grandia + Digital Museum.

    Saturn + NiGHTS = GOD.

    Plus there's lots of cool stuff. Don't forget Clockwork Knight, Shining the Holy Ark, Policenauts, etc. Makes me want to pull it out again just thinking about it....

    they made a Policenauts for the saturn? Wow, I didn't know that. I have both Snatcher and Policenauts for the sega cd. I should go and find that version for the saturn.

    Well they also made a Saturn Snatcher as well if I am not mistaken , with better graphics and stuff...

    But I don't know how one can have a Sega CD version of Policenauts. Seeing how it was never made and all. (Its original platform was the Japanese 3DO.)

    Saturn is also sweet cause you can play your Gen games on there. If only I could play my Master system games on there!

    Sorry, friend. You cannot play Genesis carts on a Saturn, and there is no compatibility whatsoever. The cartridge slot on Saturn is for the RAM backup cart, Japanese converter, and the like.

    And, BTW, am I the only one who thinks the Saturn version of Daytona USA is more fun than the Dreamcast one?

    I guess so. Saturn being the only sega product I have never bought. Some of my friends that had it swore it could cause that slot on it. Mabey I can grab one and find a way to do it ) I got my obsession with BakuBaku when i was in japan but never actually owned it *( wish I did.

    Fortunately, finding good Saturn games (for the most part) is pretty easy. If you live near any Funcoland stores, ask the employees if they have any games tucked in anywhere. I've been surprised at what's been stuffed into a back room or unused drawer. And try to cut a deal while you're at it; most places that still have Saturn games lying around aren't expecting to sell them, so they'll be grateful for any money.

    After that, of course, there's eBay. Looking for that multitap and extra controllers for Saturn Bomberman? Dive right in.

    Some great Saturn games that no one mentioned. /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    Sokyugurentai(Shooter)
    Battle Garegga(shooter)
    Thunder Force 5(as above)
    Elevator Action Returns(Platformer)
    Astal(as above)
    SEGA RALLY

    Saturn IS incredible. The games are still great. And many of them are much better than equivalent games on current systems. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif
