Same for me, Its all a bit new but loving it so far. Here's mine

Fighters History Dynamite - Probably the best SF clone out there. A solid fighter that plays extremely well
Soukyugurentai Otokuyo (Terra Diver) - an excellent shmup with a cracking soundtrack
Astal - Quirky platformer with lovely visuals
Cyberbots - the best robot fighting game there is
X-Men Children of the Atom - brilliant fast paced fighter that helped pave the way for Marvel vs Capcom

i think the Saturn really excels with fighters and shmups given that it does 2D very well. Shame that so much of these excellent titles were missed here. Perhaps then I would have been compelled to get a Saturn back in the day if imports were more readily available.

1) Fighters Megamix - I was torn between Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2 so I thought I would just compromise
2) Sega Rally - Straight up arcade racing fun that still holds up today
3) Virtua Cop 2 - Until Time Crisis appeared this was my my go to Light gun shooter at home and in the arcades
4) Street Fighter Zero - First time I played this was on a friends (at the time) recently imported Japanese Saturn. I never got to play SSF2T so seeing Zero with it's awesome super moves blew my mind
5) Sonic Jam - The 3D Sonic world included was a fantastic way to present all of the artwork, videos and other extras. The down side being it made you crave a 3D sonic game even more

There are even more games i'd like to add but those are the stand out titles for me.

You guys are terrible, especially to my wallet! I've just ordered Mass Destruction on the Saturn after this.............. :( :D

The PS1 version was cheaper, but I saw that the Saturn version is superior, so had to go with that, plus more collectible.
