    Oh another back in the day games. I liked Virtual On. Dam Nostalgia if only they remade some of the greats. I like hd remakes. I am guess Playstation is coming next dam. This can get expensive blast from the past.

    The SEGA Saturn had good games? I keed, I keed. SEGA Rally Championships was awesome.

    Mega Man!

    ...Eh. While reading the Genesis left me wanting to try a lot of those games, non here really caught my eye. Not to mention that a lot of those can be found in the PS One, and while the Saturn might have better versions. A lot of these games probably won't even make it near the PSOne 25 list because it offered far more than this. ...Thinking about it though, there's something I'm curious about... The SoTN version for saturn. I ignore if it's better graphically or gameplay-wise than the PS version, but I think it did have an extra location and Maria Renard as a playable character. Wouldn't that made it a worthy entry on this list?

    It IS on the list.
  • BladedFalcon - November 25, 2014 8:14 a.m.

    It is NOW. But notice that my comment was made 2 years and a half ago. Back then the game want in the list. The list had been revised since.
  • RedHarlow - April 18, 2012 10:41 a.m.

    I was one of those weird kids who had a Sega Saturn, and I still have it. Virtua Fighter 2, Virtual On, Blazing Dragons, Gex, Three Dirty Dwarves, Virtua Cop 2, the list goes on...

    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.
  • 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.
  • Pogogacy - April 18, 2012 12:58 p.m.

    The Sega Saturn is a sublime console and anyone who thinks otherwise can suck my cock.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • raul-cienfuegos - December 21, 2013 6:29 a.m.

    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.
  • heelstarkiller - March 6, 2014 12:06 p.m.

    I Knew Nights Was Number 1
  • 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
