    I had a Saturn recently for awhile, the Ram had been left inside, played nothing but X-Men vs Street Fighter. I might get another one and see if I can track some of these games down. Considering I've beaten Beyond Oasis so much, and I have wanted to play the other since I found out about it. And it would be really, really, really nice to play Akumajo Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight, even if it is crap. It is the experience that counts

    Sega Rally was a legendary game.

    No Albert Odyssey?!1? Come on! Otherwise, excellent list.

    I actually still debate to this day whether the Saturn or the Dreamcast is my favorite system. But for sure, a sequel to Burning Rangers needs to be made. And thank God for the Xbox Live releases of some these games driving the costs down. Otherwise I would never get to play Radiant Silvergun (joy!)

    I know what you mean, man though I'm far more bummed to this day about the DC's demise than the Saturn's.
  • jedisamurai - March 8, 2014 10:06 p.m.

    I remember my shock when the Dreamcast official magazine was discontinued. I had no idea the system wasn't selling. I was having a blast and buying Dreamcast games like crazy at the time. I still own mine, still play it,and am still hunting down great games for it.
  • jedisamurai - March 6, 2014 8:14 p.m.

    Wait...Burning Rangers is ranked... 40??????? Dude that game needs to be in the top ten. My top five for what it's worth: Panzer Dragoon Zwei Sega Rally Nights Into Dreams Burning Rangers Sega Ages
  • heelstarkiller - March 6, 2014 12:06 p.m.

    I Knew Nights Was Number 1

    Ugh, you had Street Fighter Alpha 2 but not the Japan only Street Fighter Zero 3?? You missed...... Donpachi, DoDonPachi, Shienryu, Soukyugurentai, Battle Garrega, Waku Waku 7, Puzzle Bobble 2/3, Bubble Symphony, Silhouette Mirage, Metal Slug(!), KoF 97, Super Tempo, Game Paradise, Astra Superstars, Gunbird, Sengoku Ace, Bomberman Wars, Puyo Puyo Sun, Sexy Parodius, Cotton Boomerang.... And last but not least Grandia and Grandia digital museum!!!! - and these are games I am just thinking of, these are not only good, but amongst the best ports of these games ever! This list looks as if it was made by someone asking random Saturn owners what their favourite Saturn game was...
  • cptnoremac - November 25, 2014 7:26 a.m.

    Metal Slug(!) and Grandia ARE on the list. 44 and 22.
  • SomeOddGuy - April 18, 2012 4:51 p.m.

    I do have to say it's funny that you just made this list today. I had just purchased another(I regrettably sold my old one to a rare collector years ago) not more than a few hours ago. I do have to note that a few of these games had me scratching my head(due to lack of knowledge of them), though I would have figured something like Clockwork Knight to have at least made a small appearance on the list.
  • Redeater - April 18, 2012 3:20 p.m.

    Where the hell is Shenmue?? Wait what?....never mind.
  • BladedFalcon - April 19, 2012 9:29 a.m.

    Should I bother pointing out what's wrong about that first question or not?
  • ACardAttack - April 18, 2012 2:02 p.m.

    Underrated system, better than the N64 IMO when you consider all the games on there, including the ones that sadly did not make it to America
  • lilbuddha - April 18, 2012 1:38 p.m.

    I had the absolute pleasure of playing Panzer Saga back when it was "new". Borrowed it from a friend, played the first 3 discs (he was finishing up the 4th), and sadly I never finished it...Easily one of the best rpg's i've ever played.
  • Pogogacy - April 18, 2012 12:58 p.m.

    The Sega Saturn is a sublime console and anyone who thinks otherwise can suck my cock.
  • Rowdie - April 18, 2012 12:13 p.m.

    Another, where is Virtual On! take. Daytona USA CCE. It's actually suppose to be in order, FMM and FV ahead of VF2? Odd. Burning Rangers should be no where near the list. The game either pushed the system too far or wasn't given the proper time to work out the bugs. It had so much tear and flicker it was nearly unplayable. Might have considered putting Tomb Raider and World Wide Soccer in the mix somewhere. In place of some of the rpgs. Props for the Bomberman luv, easily the best Bomberman of all time; and Panzer Saga easily the best JRPG of all time.
  • cptnoremac - November 25, 2014 7:29 a.m.

    Tomb Raider is on the list.
  • garnsr - April 18, 2012 12:05 p.m.

    I played through Panzer Saga again not too long ago, and it's still great. I'd kill for another game like it on current systems.
