    The key to making Sega Touring Car Championship playable (not easy, but actually playable) is to use a racing wheel. It's just not well-optimized for a regular controller. Still, even with a wheel, I found it very touchy. It was definitely an attempt at a more serious simulation from Sega at the time, and I reckon they went too far with the steering sensitivity. It seems like it would be a good candidate for a hack to modify it to be more playable by current standards, but I don't know if there's even an active hacking/modding community for the Saturn.

    One Saturn game that feels really great and fun with a wheel is Manx TT.

    Turbo Out Run is a game that I would have to say is just really unfair, with some curves that are just impossible to take with any speed. I've been playing the 3DS version which has some ways to modify the game and it's still just got turns that are really hard to deal with. But it's interesting to keep trying just to see the different scenery.

    Some of the games are compatible with the 3D control pad, including Sega Touring and Manx TT Superbike (I can hear that British announcer guy saying the name in my head), and I like playing them that way. Big fan of the analog stick.

    I agree. Manx TT is highly playable with the NiGHTS analog pad as well as the regular Saturn d-pad.

    I have been playing with the 3D pad and I am definitely improving in STTC.

    Lol same. I would generally consider myself pretty "okay" at racing games, and it still takes me hours to get a new one down.
