In hindsight I don't think there have been many Sega games (throughout gaming history) I've properly loved ..... that does lead nicely back on topis though, VF2 on the Saturn is awesome LOL
Part of me 'feels' for Sega and this is going back to the Saturn era here-even when Saturn had superior versions of Hexen, Duke Nukem 3D, was doing Quake, Sega Rally, VF:Remix, VF 2, Last Bronx, 2 V.Cops, Panzer Dragon series, Die Hard Arcade, Exhumed, D.O.A, Die Hard Arcade, Mass Destruction, Sonic R etc etc they just could'nt get a break.Hardware still viewed as inferior (jeez just what did it have to do to prove itself? things like VF2, Last Bronx running in machines higher res modes etc), public ignored it.
Ditto with Dreamcast, they stole an E3 with strongest line up, ever, had games like Headhunter, MSR, Ecco, MDK II, Res.Evil Code Vern.(ist real-time 3D Resident Evil), F355, Quake 3, Unreal T. (better than PS2 version), Trick Style, Rayman 2, Shen Mue all actual, honest to god games running, no smoke and mirrors concept footage or rendered demo's and still people thought the machine under-powered compared to what the belived PS2 would deliver (not knocking PS2 here, God Of War II alone looked like early 360 game, it was that epic), but i just could'nt see there being anything they could do, they had'nt at least tried.
Skip forward to Sega as a publisher and i'm left wondering why the PS3 MD collection had so much space left on the Blu ray, surely a lot more games could have gone on there, why they still have'nt converted Lost world, Planet Harriers etc to the home format, why the Aliens RPG was canned, yet AVP released...etc etc.
