Does the Saturn have any worthwhile horror games without the fixed camera?

Next month marks 25 years since the Sega Saturn unceremoniously launched.

Wanna play anything?

My local charity shop has a new Sega Saturn with about 5 or 6 games, including Sonic Jam and Virtua Fighter 2 (can't remember the others), and a gun. She's going to put it on ebay but said I can make an offer.
What is a reasonable offer I could make? I don't want to come across as lowballing or offer way higher than would be accepted.
UK btw if that makes a difference.

I had both a Nintendo 64 and a PlayStation when I was a kid, but I never knew anybody who had a Sega Saturn. The only time I've even seen the console IRL was at a Circuit City kiosk many years ago. I've always been intrigued by the Saturn, and I'm considering acquiring one. I'm aware it's something of a niche console and I've seen the games fetch some pretty high prices. I'm not worried about trying to build a Saturn game collection as long as I can somehow play the games off of an actual Saturn console.

Will I need a modchip to play burned discs (like a PlayStation) or is there some sort of flashcart?
How much money should I be prepared to spend on a working console and the necessary peripherals?
Is there a particular model that I should keep an eye out for?

I heard it was designed for 2D games and did them well, but making 3D games was a round peg square hole situation. It came out too late but had the potential to make god-tier 2D games.

>Build a 2D powerhouse console just as the money shifts to 3D
>Make a desperate last-minute 3D capability addition that makes your console extremely expensive to produce
>Sell the product at a huge loss but still get undercut by a $100 by your competitor because their console is cheaper to produce
>Move the console launch date 4 months forward to which surprised EVERYBODY, even the development teams who were forced to release unfinished products and retailers who were preparing for the original release date
>Retailers are so pissed off that some flat out refuse to stock the console (this was before Internet shopping was a thing, zoomers)
>Unfinished games are so poor consumers think your console is an underpowered piece of shit
>Desperately cut the price of the console further, losing even more money AND pissing off your most loyal customers who paid the higher price for the console just a few months earlier, most of whom had already been recently snubbed by the 32X disaster
>Hire a useless, obnoxious Jew to fix the mess, who not only manages to piss off the third-parties that had remained faithful to your company, but also lets slip support for the console was ending (before it actually ended), causing sales to drop to almost zero, developers to abandon their projects to switch to the Playstation, and pissing off some game developers so much that they vowed never to work on Sega products ever again

And the rest is history

Why wasn't there a Sonic game on this? Why did they even release the system without a Sonic game even anywhere close on the horizon?

Even Nintendo un-fucked itself by releasing the pathetic Super Mario Sunshine less than a year into the GameCube's life.

Ausfag here, looking at importing pic related from Japan since I don't want to have to mod one from Australia to play vidya at 60hz and Jap consoles tend to be cheaper.
I managed to get a power supply for my Super Famicom that converts the voltage without the need for a seperate step-down converter which does the job great, does anyone know if something similar exists for the Saturn? Or will I need to get a step-down converter?
If so, what kind of converter does /vr/ reccomend?

Saturn thread

What are some good Saturn games?

So far I tried:

>Assault Suit Leynos 2
Seems fucking great. I love Assault Suit Valkan, and this one seems just as good if not better.

>Astal
Seems pretty great.

>NIGHTS
No idea wtf I'm supposed to do. Not sure if I'll like it.

>Princess Crown
Haven't tried it yet.

>Radiant Silvergun
Seems pretty badass. Playing it on Easiest though.

>Sega Ages OutRun
Excellent. I love the 60 fps secret option and automatic gear shifting.

>Silhouette Mirage
No idea wtf I'm supposed to do.

Any other good games?
