    Its a good system, I just don't like how much the games are overrated, and overpriced.

    It also has no Sega feel to it at all either, it feels more like the successor to the PC-Engine, and I'd imagine thats where it took most of its marketshare from in Japan.

    Come to think of it... You're kinda right about this.

    I agree, the Saturn is very much a "spiritual" successor to the PC-Engine+CD. That is one of the reasons I like it so much. I also thought it was very interesting that NEC and Sega teamed up for the Dreamcast the way they did.

    I only put the first one because he might not want to associate himself with modern sonic. Though he should, considering his nickname.

    I was never fond of Saturn. It's by far the most pompous of the planets, what, with it's huge rings that it shows off in every damned picture like some kind of celestial bling. And all those moons. You'd think the planet would learn to keep its atmosphere closed for God's sake. But no, it's all done just to get atten-

    What? The gaming system? OH! Yeah, um... good system.

    I only recently played Saturn for the first time. I find it to be a well above average system. Not quite as good as the Dreamcast, but still a solid system. The US library is a bit weak compared to the Imports and the prices for a lot of games are too high which sucks. Other than that I would say it's worth the $40-$50 it sells for now a days.

    ^ Not enough rep in the world for this one. That was just too damned good. I do frequently dream of battling an alien robot on Io though.

    Oh crap, that isn't a Saturn moon, burn 'em all!

    So what reason do you have for not buying a Pro Action Replay 4-in-1 and some good fighting games?

    Anybody who enjoys the Playstation should enjoy the Saturn. For multilplatform games the PS version should by and large be preferred since it's by and large the original code, however some 3D games like Powerslave and (arguably) Alien Trilogy run better on Saturn, along with slight superiority in most 2D fighters' cases. Silhouette Mirage is generally regarded better on SS. Most Genesis fans prefer the thin Saturn controller for fighting games or everything over the PS's, and the Nights controller is the nonretarded predecessor of the DC's. Nights is the true Sonic 3D. It has a number of mildly good racers for those who enjoy 32 bit racing (no grinding career based bullshit) and other games worth seeing such as the Bugs though they won't set the Thames afire. But if you want to be an idiot about imports you should probably skip it; my feeling is there's no reason to own anything but a JP console.
    And it is very much a Sega console = old IP were abandoned and new IP were made: Nights, Panzer Dragoon, and Sakura.

    @ zz Badnusty's statement: 1st off, the laser's twice as fast and of far better make: the only reason these systems fail is abuse to their cartridge slots or lazy partial mods; many people also prefer the large single memory cart to Sony's 15 slotters (I consider it a toss-up at best). Every game save 3 can be soft reset from the controller by pressing A+B+C+Start. I don't know whether you're a strict collector or what but the Dreamcast wouldn't be worshiped all over the internet had it any sort of copy protection---copy protection which also would've kept Sega making games for it---so don't let game prices deter you, and if that isn't your thing Saturn disks are easy burns, they run even when burnt way over speed.

    The Saturn has several RPGs (North American) that are worth buying a Saturn for. Shining: The Holy Ark is one of my favorites from the 32-bit era and I enjoyed playing it more than Final Fantasy VII.







    My Saturn collection is mostly North American titles, with only a handful of imports. It had a pretty solid library here as well.

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."
