Best games for the saturn? I'm looking into picking one up and I've barely touched it other than a couple of shmups. Can either be exclusive or superior versions of PS1 games.

>> No.5588646

Panzer Dragoon Zwei is the best one.

Playing imports is easy on the Saturn. You can install a region switch or use an Action Replay Cartridge. Going further you can also easilly install a Mod Chip or get a Pseudo Saturn to play burned games and then you can just patch the region code with easily available software.

Dead or Alive and Thunder Force V have little to no Japanese text in them, and Grandia has an English Patch in development:

Here's some interesting stuff, even if not all is actually great:

The Panzer Dragoon series is ace, definitely pick them up. Top fucking quality.
NiGHTS is fun and has nice graphics for the machine. Bit short, but it's entirely built around score-attack play.
Bulk Slash is a fantastic transforming mech game with cute navigator girls you can discover in each stage (or if you don't care, just pick up the one on the first level). It's JP only, but you don't need to understand jack shit to play.
Most of the Model 2 ports range from okay to fantastic. Virtual On, Virtua Fighter 2, Sega Rally, that sort of thing.
Sonic R kinda blows due to its short length and awkward controls, but it's got nice graphics and cool music.
Psychic Assassin Taromaru is super rare and expensive... but you can just burn a copy these days and it's a neat 2D with polygons sidescroller. Great fun, lots of style.
Ninpen Manmaru is obnoxious as fuck, but it's an original 3D platformer on the machine. Starts off really easy, eventually becomes full of obnoxious perfect jumps in 3D.
Wipeout on Saturn runs at 20fps instead of 30 and has an altered soundtrack, but it also has more forgiving collisions and might be worth playing for that.
Die Hard Arcade is one of my favorite beat-em-ups, but I haven't actually played it on Saturn in some time. Should be arcade perfect, other than loading. I've mostly just played the PS2 release these days.
Sonic Jam has the cool 3D Sonic World. Shame about the heavy, random slowdown in Sonic 2 (it's present but not really an issue in S1 or S3&K) and shitty sound effects. It's got time attack and other cool shit, and easy mode if you're really bad at Sonic.

dunno if it's my Saturn, Pseudo Saturn Kai, or what, but TFV has obnoxious framerate issues vs on PS1 for me

>anything in TFV with any substantial 3D geometry on screen makes it drop frames like mad

Must be your Saturn, for me it only drops frames in maybe 1 area that really matters (the Guardian Mother bossfight). It drops frames in some other cutscenes, like the forest boss blowing up, when you enter the water on stage 1, or when the final final boss changes forms, but that do not affect the gameplay.
