    The original Panzer Dragoon is awesome! I rediscovered this series recently, after downloading PD Orta for the Xbox360.
    Btw, do you guys know of any Saturn emulator that properly emulates the widescreen mode of games like PD Zwei and Nights?
    Years ago I tried SSF, but I've heard the widescreen mode does not work there.

    Saturn is the only console I gave up on using original hardware after both my Japanese V-Saturn and American SS cartridge slots started showing issues and the laser units died off...

    I loved the original the most. For me better art direction, better bosses and better music. The intro is still awesome and the game captured perfectly the bond between a pet and its owner and the sense of isolation, that it was you and your pet against the whole world.

    I agree that aesthetically the first game is top-notch, love the first stage music! I do prefer how the later games evolved and expanded technically and gameplaywise, though.

    On a side note, I'm looking forward to unlock the original game in PD Orta's Pandora Box, there's just a couple of stages left to complete. Orta is a tough game, but it has been ages since I had so much fun figuring out boss battle's patterns in a videogame.

    Getting a better frame rate in Zwei really made a night and day difference and helped it control better, makes such a difference for a shooter. If not for a couple of poor levels, Orta would have been the best of the lot. Love playing Orta on my series X thanks to the added HDR support

    I will add Hyper Duel to the list. It's amazing. Short but great. I like it more than the Thunder Force series tbh.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Hyper Duel gets the most play currently. Too bad it seems to be accumulating what I think would be some sort of disc rot. Game works perfectly fine so far. Got to enjoy while it lasts I guess.

    God I loved the Saturn, but picking favorites is like asking me to empty a large travel bag, so here goes!

    Guardian Heroes will always be my favorite overall experience, me and my brother would play this one together a lot back in the day.

    Panzer Dragoon Saga was a nice blend of arcade flight and rpg mechanics and remains arguably my favorite PD game, though Panzer Dragoon Zwei competes pretty hard as my favorite straight shooter variant, and the original Panzer Dragoon had my favorite soundtrack and overall mood (so epic!), but really you can't go wrong with the saturn PD games when I think about it.

    Nights into Dreams was a one-of-kind experience, especially with the Analogue Controller which made the game a blast to play (along with certain other titles!). Loved Burning Rangers too, I always like me a weird Japanese game concept now and again.

    Shining The Holy Ark is my favorite RPG on the console, just such an addicting dungeon crawler that felt like it nailed dungeon exploration perfectly, with the right ominous moods and music. Shining Force III was great too, though you needed some help to play Scenarios 2 and 3 in english.

    Dragon Force is amazing, I remember being super addicted to that game, Junon is one of my favorite video game characters.

    Legend of Oasis was a lot of fun, probably my favorite action-RPG thanks to that awesome spirit system. I actually had a good time with Shining Wisdom and Magic Knight Rayearth as well, those were fun games. Albert Odyssey was definitely an enjoyable, solid RPG that I have no complaints with.

    Hyper Duel is definitely underrated, I think it's one of the coolest shmups I've ever played, but pretty dang hard in my opinion. Blast Wind was fun too, I think that deserves a mention.

    Radiant Silvergun is a classic, very original gameplay, and it has a very epic atmosphere.

    Darius Gaiden is still my personal favorite Darius game, it's got such beautiful graphics for its time, and the bosses were a lot of fun. Galactic Attack (or Rayforce if you prefer) was a nice port too, great music to boot!

    Baku Baku Animal is very underrated, I think it's quite an enjoyable puzzle game, but that's just me.

    Fighter's Megamix is the best 3D fighter bar-none, there's just no competition.

    Gungriffon is an awesome mech game, I really enjoyed it, and I personally enjoyed Gungriffon II as well (though I enjoyed the first a little more).

    Cotton 2 and Cotton Boomerang were good fun if you like shmups. Also liked Kingdom Grand Prix for how unique (but imperfect) it was, and Battle Garegga is just straight up legendarily good in my opinion, as it is seriously a personal favorite of mine. Soukyugurentai was great too, can't forget that one.

    I liked both Clockwork Knight games as they had a really fun art design to them, Astal was very beautiful and had a cool bird helper, and the original Bug! was unique enough for its time.

    Shinobi Legions was pretty dang hard for what I expected, the elevator sequence in the final level is a true test of your reflexes. loved it.

    Both Virtua Cop games were fun, probably more methodical in their pacing than most shooters are, but it rewarded skill greatly.

    Groove On Fight was good weird fun, I liked the old guy with the slot machine move, that's my main. Waku Waku 7 was probably the best Sunsoft fighter on the system, though Astra Superstars was still a fun title in its own right.

    I think it's weird that Keio (from Keio Flying Squadron) and Tempo got sequels, but both games were actually pretty fun which was a surprise.

    Manx TT was my favorite Saturn racer, doubly so with the Analogue Controller. I liked Sega Rally and Daytona USA CCE, both of those were good fun.

    Saturn Bomberman was great with friends, and has a fun adventure if you play alone too!

    Most ports of Capcom fighters for the Saturn were great, but the ones I liked the most were: Night Warriors, Vampire Savior, Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, as well as Street Fighter Alpha 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3.

    Finally, I am 1 out of 50 people who probably enjoyed Enemy Zero, I just thought its premise was so scary, plus I loved how weird Warp's games tended to be. D was a great game too. RIP Kenji Eno!

    Sure I forgot some, but this right here is the top of the heap for my tastes.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot Guardian Force, that was a fun shmup too! The Sega Ages collection was a nice port back in its day, at least the one that made it to the states. Metal Black and Darius II got great ports as well.

    SNK/Neo Geo had some great ports too, like Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown III, World Heroes Perfect, Fighter's History Dynamite, and The King of Fighters '97.

    Lovely list. Gun Griffon is the best mech game ever made IMO. I loved Enemy Zero it felt like I was talking part in the movie Alien and I loved the understated music score and I still remember getting the Happy New Year Message, which was such a nice touch. RIP Kenji

    Definitely, I remember being very impressed with Gungriffon when I first played it, the gameplay felt so smooth to me. Gungriffon is a huge favorite of mine, and it's possibly a contender for my top spot as well.

    It's so sad how Gungriffon Blaze and Allied Strike couldn't compare to the Saturn Gungriffon games, not saying they're bad games, but more like they just didn't have the magic the originals did. Gungriffon Blaze played good enough, but I do think it feels barren and much too short for what I expected. Gungriffon: Allied Strike on Xbox did look a bit behind graphically, and the slowdown wasn't helping its cause, and the controls felt much harder to grasp. Also I could never find people online for a mech battle back in the day save for one online match where I got beat pretty bad, but it did release around the time of a new Mechwarrior game on Xbox, so I think that was the nail in the coffin for that franchise.

    As for Enemy Zero, I agree that it felt like the movie Alien, I always say the best horror experiences are the ones where you feel helpless against the threat and have to rely on your instincts to get through, and this game nailed that mood. I definitely appreciated the easter egg involving the New Year's message, that was a nice touch. Also, the game advertised that Michael Nyman did the soundtrack to the game, and I remember liking his work in the game, just great stuff.

    I've only played Daytona, Virtual On, and Space Hulk. All 3 were good but based on the amount of playtime I have Space Hulk and Daytona tied for 1st place.
