3, 2, 1… Liftoff to Sega Saturn

A momentous, yet entirely and shamefully pathetic, event happened to me yesterday. I received my first Sega console. Ever. In the entire history of myself that is over three decades long now.

Yes, I know. How can I call myself a gamer? How have I not owned a Dreamcast?

My dear plebs, it is because during the entire time Sega was manufacturing consoles, I was a dyed-in-the-wool Nin-tard. I have purchased every single Nintendo console since my parents brought home a NES in the 80s. Little did I know what I was missing out on all these years.

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say.

I have rectified my youthful oversights and I now yearn for a Dreamcast for various, yet excellent reasons not the least of which is eventually acquiring a copy of Segagaga. But I cannot just buy a Dreamcast, I must earn it, or so I’ve been told in the alleyways. Therefore, as a result of some shady and potentially lethal back-room negotiations which involved answering for my crimes–that is to say the purchasing of a Nintendo 64 and aGamecube–against Sega, a mysterious package arrived in the mail. It was not a severed head, thankfully. It was a Sega Saturn (model MK-80000A), sans A/V cable… but that can be rectified easily.

So now I turn to you my dear 47 readers…

What are some games for the Saturn I absolutely should not live without?

(The first person who says Panzer Dragoon Saga owes me the $200+ so I can afford it.)

    when I moved out of my parents house, I left my PS2….and took my saturn.

    let me know if you find a copy of burning rangers so I can beat you to it.

    Daytona, VF2 and Sega rally are obvious must haves though

    I’m a fan of light-gun games. So all the Virtua Cops and Area 51 type games on the Saturn are some of my favs. If I recall, there are also tons of sweet fighters on that system too.
