With the Saturn, Sega have completely dropped of the console space in a lot fo the world. Sony were dominating with the Playstation, and Nintendo's late entry into the market with the N64 completely buried them. In many ways, the decisions Sega made prior to the Saturn era, and during it, have greatly contributed to the downfall of the company.
This is why, the Saturn has a bum reputation even among Sega fans. It killed their beloved company and have setup the Dreamcast to fail.
However, the system still has its fans, and its 2D abilities are considered the best by some of its fans. It's position as the third prong in the console war meant that it could take some risks with its games, and meant that it didn't need to chase the graphical power race between Nintendo and Sony.
Regardless, I have not played any Saturn game before, and that's why I am very intrested coming into this review series. I want to be pleasantly surprised with offbeat games, hidden gems, and generally have a good time.
Like with my other review series, I am going to use a top 100 list as a basis for my reviews, this time again from Retro Sanctuary:
Top 100 Saturn Games from Retro Sanctuary
So, I am going to review games that interest me from that list from 100 to 1. Like with my other review list, I am not going to review:
So, which of these games were never played by Chris Carter?
Outside of List Reviews:
This list is only based on the Retro Sanctuary list, and might be missing some lesser known games. As always, I welcome any suggestion of games I should be playing, whether they are in the list or outside of it.
Please note if any of the games above that I am thinking of playing are worth it in any way. Games in bold I will review unless someone gives me a compelling reason not to.
