I was always a Virtua Cop, Sega Rally and Virtua Fighter man myself, they were some of my favourite arcade games at the time.paranoid marvin wrote:I can't see the point in getting a Saturn when there's the Dreamcast - all the arcade ports but better
With the possible exception of the Panzer Dragoon series , there was no real reason to own a Saturn instead of a PS1.
PS1 had as many decent arcade conversions as Saturn ,and in many cases were better- Tekken , Ridge Racer , Time Crisis imho were better
than Virtua Fighter , Sega Rally , Virtua Cop
I didn't have enough money at the time to buy a PS1 too,l so those other series don't really mean much to me. The flagship games like Final Fantasy and MGS never really floated my boat either.
If you like 2D fighters, there is a very good case to be made for owning a Saturn.

I would recommend anyone buying a Saturn to find Dragon Force, Sega Ages vol 1 (outrun, afterburner & space harrier), Guardian Heroes, Burning Rangers, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Fighting Vipers, Virtua On, Athlete Kings...
There's no arguing that the PS1 had a much larger library, although since I didn't get into PS1 games until I got a PS2, I'm not great at sorting the good stuff from the shovelware.
