    Default Anyone here who doesnt like the Saturn ?

    I know this is a Sega site and there's a lot of Saturn fans here but I wonder if there is anyone like me who never had a Saturn and have no urge to buy one. Hey, I really like Genesis and Sega CD as well as Dreamcast but for some reason the 32X and Saturn never resonated with me.

    I think most people that have played a Saturn enjoyed it. I love the Saturn, however I dislike the prices many games go for.

    The Saturn is probably one of my favorite consoles I own. Though if you don't like RPGs, Arcade games, and Sega titles, you might not like it.

    nope. I bought my saturn at launch and loved it ever since.

    Are you familiar with the saturn's library? There is a ton of 2D greatness in there.

    I found it to be a very middle of the road system. Not outstanding, but not bad either.

    I don't buy imports so it's probably not a console for me.

    Panzer Dragoon is the awesomeness. A Saturn is worth for it alone.

    I'm not talking about imports. I'm talking about domestic titles like Astal, Legend of Oasis, Dragon Force, etc.

    From what Ive read, the best games were imports and it doesnt seem like a console worth owning if you only buy US released games.

    At the time I found it worth owning. Now the prices are so silly that maybe not anymore. To bad you just burn discs easily like the Dreamcast. Many of the games , Magic Knight, PZS, Guardian Heroes,etc I bought new are so expensive I can't see buying them again. Then again some people don't care about the price. I however like having enough money to pay my rent.

    There are many ways to look at the Saturn. The way the media looked at it was if it wasn't top notch texture mapped lighted 3D it sucked, in which case the Saturn only has a handful of "good" games. General public opinion at the time claimed that if it wasn't 3D it wasn't worth buying, in which case the Saturn has more "good" games than not. Collectors are going to go for the gold of collecting as many titles as possible, redundancies be damned, in which case the Saturn is a gold mine of high cost and low cost items to bolster said collection.

    Retro Gamers are going to apply their own genre biases to any platform the look at in hindsight. Most of the above perspectives will apply, but genre specific preferences will prevail, in which case the Saturn is an above average game console.
