    The Sega Saturn is one of my favourite consoles and contains some of my favourite gams of all time. It didn't get a huge following in the west, most people getting the PSX because of it's 3D capabilities and of course more support from developers. I reckon it's a pretty underappreciated machine and is definitely worth checking out, in my opinion there's never been a more playable rally game then Sega Rally. With emulation coming along well for it I thought I'd start an essentials list for all those that either use emulation or are thinking about getting a modded Saturn.

    I've started it off with my favourite games (I know it's a huge list already, but there's just so many great games!) and as more Saturn fans vote I'll start arranging it in vote order.

    I totally thought I'd already put it in. It's a shame about the textures being so low-res but it's a great conversion.

    Noooooooo! lol I never did like the Saturn version of VR, the 32X version kicks ass over it, which is a shame really as I reckon if done properly the Saturn would've pulled off an awesome conversion.

    Nevertheless, it's still playable in saturn and since I don't have a 32X. By the way, I'd love to have a 32X!!! [​IMG]

    Blazing Dragons. I know it was on the PS1 too but it was the Saturn that I had it for and enjoyed it.

    Vampire Hunter!

    Prefer this to Vampire Saviour because it has "rounds" in gameplay.
