Did the Sega Saturn even have anything to play besides pic related and Panzer Dragoon? It looks like nothing but arcade ports that get boring fast.

The Sega Saturn had the best game library of it's generation...in Japan.

Wow. Wrong much? Nights and Panzer Dragoon are arcade style, so the fun comes from replaying them for hours and hours and hours trying your best to lower your time and increase your score.
The fun comes from seeing numbers get bigger. Bigger numbers = more fun.

Go back to playing your Playstation 4 and xbox 720 if you can't appreciate the joy of playing the same level over and over. /vr/ is for real gamers.

It's Sega, of course it's going to be heavy on arcade ports and arcade-style games. That's sort of Sega's thing. They were primarily a developer of arcade games.

Saturn had a weaker library, and effectively it died in 1998, while the PlayStation was strong as hell until well into 2001. Backwards capability of the PS2 lead to a few more years of life in the system.

A lot of the games aren't that good, and don't compare to PS. You see lists like >>5353352 that are absolutely filled with padding to keep them decent size. No way that Duke Nukem would ever make a best PS game list. A lot of them are mediocre, rather than bad.

The JP section is better. A lot of the shooting games, are great. Something like Deep Fear is "interseting", but kind of a mess of a game that doesn't beat Resident Evil.

Wachenroder is a cool story, premise, and atmosphere,but is ugly with okay boring gameplay. THat should get a remake.

i loved nights & was completely blown away testing the demo at my local retailer...theres also a christmas version if you havent checked it out


i grabbed a saturn for the 2d fighting games as they are objectively the best versions usually (marvel vs capcom, street fighters etc)

yes OP, play dragon force (best game imo), dragon force 2 (jap only), deep fear (very good survival), dark savior, bulk slash, shining the holy ark, sega rally (never gets boring), a lot of T-RPGs if you like that, and multiplats that are arguably better on the Saturn like Exhumed or Duke.

sure, the ps1 had a better library as a whole, but the saturn had many games to have a lot of fun. if it's not a bait thread, then just try them

The system may just not appeal to you depending what kinds of games you like, but I greatly enjoy my Saturn.

Legend of Oasis
Guardian Heroes
Astal
Dark Savior
Rayearth
Silhouette Mirage (import but jap is the only version worth playing anyways)
Dragon Force
Burning Rangers

Those are some of the non-arcade games I liked on it, but depending on your taste some or all may not appeal. Not everything is for everyone...

I mean the Playstation was objectively better, even when it comes to 2D games it can hold ground against the Saturn due to SotN, the beter version of DoDonPachi, etc., but that's not the point. Point is the Saturn is still good and if you like arcade games you'll like it. If you don't and you don't know moon then it has limited value.
