It's hard to look past the Wii for the reasons C=style mentioned.

But if we're seperating the Wii from it's backwards compatability then I would probably say the Gamecube. It had loads of great exclusives, 3 Zelda games, lots of good multiplayer games and the entire Resi Evil series up to that point, including the exclusive Zero and REmake.

I don't like RPGs or strategies, and I tend to enjoy platformers more on the 16-bits. That's just me.

RPGs: Shining series, Dark Savior, PD Saga, Grandia (JPN only)
Strategies: Command & Conquer, Warcraft 2
Platformers: Croc, Bug, Clockwork Knight - said before it's not the Saturn's strong point.

Included Sonic Jam in my original post, but it's a shame that the best platformers you can play on the Saturn are Mega Drive games.

I'm sorry to say this (what with being a HUGE Sega fan) but I think most Developers wouldn't have done Saturn games if their royalty rates were 100 percent. There was such a hard-on for Sony at that time that Sega couldn't win. Obviously it didn't help that they behaved like pricks once they got fortune and glory (Sony, take note please) but that's a debate for another day.

I genuinely wonder sometimes what would have happened had Sony never existed. Certainly the 3D generation wouldn't have happened so soon.
