I was a good system, but it doesn’t really have that much support and that’s why it failed. Probably if you can read Japanese there are more games to play that would be classics.
It had good fighting games since PSX couldn’t actually handle stuff, like I remember Saturn XvSF was just like the arcades, but PSX had to use single player and rounds because it couldn’t do tagging. But what would you need that for now when you can get that stuff emulated on PC or off XBL or something?
If you like JRPGs, there were a few. Dragon Force obviously is one game, but I liked Shining the Holy Ark a lot too. Shining Wisdom was a solid action RPG game. I think there was Albert Odyssey and a few others. Shining Force 3 was fantastic and was a 3 scenario game where the US only got the first, but fans have translated the other 2 scenarios now so you could play the entire thing.
There was also Nights, which was a fantastic, unique game that I can’t really genre define since it is it’s own genre.
Now here is the thing, how are you going to find a system and these games? I would say you need a modded system so you can at least play copies, as there is no way you will find these games anywhere now. I don’t know how good Saturn emulation is, but I would say maybe just get it emulated. Also the Saturn controllers are still legendary, probably the last great console controller.
