Sega Saturn: We hardly knew ye

Gamer Limit writes "Ah, the Saturn. It seems just like yesterday when I was having yet another bash through Guardian Heroes. Oh wait, it was yesterday. Yep, I still play my Saturn on a regular basis. I'm one of them guys that used to buy into every first party Sega game and praise it to the high heavens telling everybody about its cult status. Unfortunately the stupid general public - yes I'm pointing at you - didn't support it enough and it died a painful death. So on this very day, for no reason at all, I'm going to explain why this console is superior to the wagglefest we're stuck with today."

I also still know the most superior version of SF Alpha 2, Virtua Fighter 2 (take that Tekken), and a bunch of filler titles I got from a local Game Crazy for 25 cents each.

Truthfully, the Saturn died a horrible death because it had an even more horrible life. 100 bucks more than the competition, and only a handful of Sega's own programmers knew how to utilize the full capabilites of it's multiple CPU's and GPU's, yes folks, it had 2 CPU's and I think it had separate GPU's for 2D and 3D graphics.

More than anything, the Saturn was the PS3 of it's day, expensive and misunderstood...fortunately Sony didn't quite have the bad rep Sega did or the PS3 would've gone out the same way.

Agreed. Although some of the games that were awesome on the system weren't even listed. Shining the Holy Ark was amazing, and there was an English version of Dragon Force released by Working Designs. It houses some of my fave games and I even have a backup console so I can continue to enjoy those classics if my primary ever dies. The Saturn was classic in it's own right and I got my first back in 1998, just before it died. I even have the last game developed on it, Magic Knight Rayearth, also done my Working Designs.
