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), but 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.

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.

!Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean
 
|RPG
 
|A turn-based RPG about some kid, Pike, who saw his parents get assraped by monsters when he was an infant and afterwards he was raised by furries (harpies). Then, his adopted sister is turned to stone and it's up to him and a TALKING SWORD to find the cure and stop those evil magicians from turning the world's races against each other and resurrecting the ancient god, Vlag. YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS GAME.

|Platformer
 
|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.

|Part one of a platformer with a toy-theme. Probably the first game to pioneer a key as a weapon which is a nice little history lesson. Pretty cool, but a bit average. Still fun though.

Is bundled with CK2 as part of the ''Pepperouchau no Fukubukuro'' package, and it includes additional games, extras and bug fixes, so that's more preferred.

''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. What the fuck, SOA?''

!Earthworm Jim 2
 
|Platformer
 
|A slight touch-up of the 16-bit versions, the most notable addition being the higher quality audio. Also features a really goofy looking CG Jim in certain cinematic scenes, but as 2D as ever in-game (Hey, it WAS the 90's. Everyone and their dog jumped on the 3D Gravytrain.).

|Classic Capcom fightan but instead of X-Men you have more than just X-Men; stuff like Spiderman, Captain America, The Hulk, etc. The Japanese version had Anita from Darkstalkers as a playable character via cheats, but for some reason she was removed from international versions.

|Unlike Megaman 8 its an exact port of the PlayStation version. Still a fun game, has a great soundtrack. The voices are kind of hit and miss. But hey, it was a 90's Capcom game y'know? Also available on PC, the Mega Man X Collection for PS2/Gamecube, and the MMX Legacy Collection for PS4/XBOne/Switch/PC.

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.

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.''
