The Sega '''Saturn''' was a good system for its time, it even had games better than it's PS1 and N64 competitors. However, The Saturn was unfairly rejected by people because of its lack of games in the west (LOL BERNIE STOLAR), so ultimately the console was forced into an early grave by the Dreamcast, and it was a dark day for Sega. Almost like the company's 3DO or Jaguar, except this didn't suck ass. If you find yourself a Sega Saturn, BUY IT. It's worth your money. Don't believe me? Check out dat list and dem games.
 
 
 
The Sega '''Saturn''' was a good system for its time, it even had games better than it's PS1 and N64 competitors. However, The Saturn was unfairly rejected by people because of its lack of games in the west (LOL BERNIE STOLAR), so ultimately the console was forced into an early grave by the Dreamcast, and it was a dark day for Sega. And because it didn't sell very well, prices for games and accessories have been inflating a lot lately. Almost like the company's 3DO or Jaguar, except this didn't suck ass. Since prices for the Saturn and its games and accessories are very high (depending on how many it sold), emulation is recommended (SSF for mid-range PCs, mednafen for high-end). If you happened to have a decent amount of money and find yourself a Sega Saturn within your price range, BUY IT! And also consider yourself getting a [https://ppcenter.webou.net/satcart/#gamers Pseudo Saturn Cartridge] and look up [https://ppcenter.webou.net/pskai/howto/ how to use it], as some games require a ram expansion cart.

|A neat platformer regarding goddesses, life, creation, and crap like that. Very fun as you go around punching enemies, throw objects at them, or use your fucking pinball of a bird to destroy them (the second). The downside is that you only have one continue and three hit points instead of the Japanese version's five, although it does help is longevity as this game is really short.

|This is a strange tile-based puzzle game that came out on different systems, originally for the SEGA Titan Video (TV) arcade systems. The concept revolves around feeding animals food, which helps you beat the other player somehow. Unlike the other versions, this one has extra modes and prettier graphics.You might like it if you've played something like Puyo Puyo.

|Warp's first US release is a good one. You're some chick who's looking around a mansion for her father whose gone insane and barricaded himself from anyone. Explore the place, and even have some "oh shi-" moments coming your way. Not the best game out there, more of an acquired taste depending on what kind of games you like. ''Also on PS1, 3DO, and DOS.''

|Unrelated to Landstalker, despite playing similarly at times. Noted for having segments of "platform, jumping, puzzle, adventure and fighting". Curiously each of these segments are separated from each other. The most notable factor about this game are its multiple scenarios. Getting to each depends on the outcome the prologue scenario, which the player may deliberately or accidentally choose a course of action. This offers a neat bit of replay value.

''Note: The Japanese version contains a character from the manga ''Decathlon'', and for copyright reasons, he was removed in international versions of the game. For a more swift kick in the nuts (at least for U.S. and Canada), one of the characters, Jef Jansens, was removed in the North American version of both this and Winter Games.

|Most survival horror games back then were the same, walk around and look for shit in a overhead view, find items, and shoot some monsters once in a while. Enemy Zero is different from that. It has a similar plot like Alien, in which some aliens escape onto a space ship in the future. The thing about this game is that it uses little to no sight distance, limits on your saves and loads, and a difficult yet rewarding shooting system to scare the shit out of you. The only thing that lets you know a alien is there is a chime that gets stronger if you are near one. And no, there is no health bar. Once an alien touches you, you're fucked. The FMVs and voices were great for it's time and it really isn't obvious why this game is 3 fucking discs long. All in all, a great game by the late-Kenji Eno and Warp.

|You ride a dragon and shoot down enemies. Fuck yes. Each of these were known for being relatively hard to find, but also rather fun. Heavily inspired by Jean Giraud's ''Arzach'', which explains the series' unique visual style. Movement is very similair to Star Fox in that only the boss battles are free range.
   
Also on the 2500 Collection for PS2 with enhanced graphics, as well as the option for the original graphics. 2500 collection games are Japan only though! You can get this on both the PC and on Panzer Dragoon Orta For Xbox.

|Free roaming exploratory levels either on foot or by dragon with loads to do. Your dragon evolves here too like in Zwei and Orta. Battles are turn based but with real time maneuvering that lets you angle attacks and perform certain strategies and may include multiple enemies that generally have multiple points which you can combat using your attacks, items, or berserks (spells).

This baby usually goes for over <strike>$250</strike> '''Ha ha try $540 minimum''', on auctions, probably because of its rarity (10,000 or so copies produced). Then again, being one of the best RPGs ever made may also have something to do with that.

Known as "Exhumed" in Europe, and is also available on PlayStation and DOS. PAL release does not include the bonus game Death Tanks and should be avoided in favor of the North American or Japanese versions.
 
 
Was unofficially remade as "Powerslave EX" in 2015, but the download was pulled offline. You can look for download mirrors online if you like, but the remake was made open-source.

Also available on PS1, the Atari Jaguar, and DOS (both the GBA and DSi versions are based on the DOS version apparently).
 
   
 
Has some slight differences in that it uses some 3D effects at the end of the levels and has different backgrounds than PS1 on some levels.

That's really all you need to know about this game. Either way, it's a neat racing game, made none other by Sega.<br />
 
Has multiple versions for this system, although the one you'll want is the '''PLUS''' edition, for it has better 3D Controller support and online multiplayer (Not like it matters to you, though).<br />
 
 
The PC version is based on this version while the PS2 version is based on the Model 2 Arcade game. Has a sequel on the Dreamcast.
 
 
''Warning: The North American version was released in an unfinished state, resulting in missing sound effects, GUI elements, and backgrounds.''

|You're Sho, your girlfriend has been kidnapped by your bastard brother Kazuma, and it's up to you to kick some ass! While not quite as good as The Revenge of Shinobi or Shinobi III, as it ditches the pixel art in favor of digitized actors and FMVs making it look dated as hell, its also more gorier, so you'll know you're in for a helluva time.<br />
 
Also known as Shinobi Legions in North America, and Shin Shinobi Den in Japan, it should be stressed that you '''get the European version''', as the soundtrack for NTSC version is so fucking shitty that SEGA of Europe got Richard Jacques, who would later compose for Sonic R, to redo the soundtrack to sound closer to Yuzo Koshiro's composition for Revenge of Shinobi, and since Shinobi X wasn't optimized well enough for PAL consoles, it should play just fine for NTSC consoles.
