I'm not following how the Playstation existing makes the Saturn not fun.

I think he means that the Saturn would have done better and had much more interest from developers if there had been no Sony PlayStation. But I could be wrong.

Hell just imagine the Saturn with PSX-esque localization. Grandia, Lunar 1/2/3, Dragon Force II, Symphony of the Night, AnEarth Fantasy Stories, Madou Monogatari, Princess Crown, Lucienne's Quest, Linkle Liver Story, FEDA, Riglord Saga 2..... and those are just some RPGs we could have gotten. Way too much stayed in Japan.

Saturn needed an easy to develop for hardware regardless if PS1 was around or not, Oh and not to mention SEGA was not good at giving devs tools to work with. If SS had hardware as easy to work with as PS2 and good Marketing outside Japan, who knows PS1 may not have mattered all that much.

The Saturn is one of the greatest consoles of all time (obviously). So many unique games and experiences and a lot of them can only be played on the Saturn (besides using emulation). I mean, there's huge numbers of quality shmups, shooters, arcade perfect 2D fighters, amazing RPGs (like Grandia, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Shining Force III, Dragon Force etc) and then there's incredibly creative and unique games like Nights into Dreams and Burning Rangers. There's so many hidden gems too that people have either forgotten or have just never really known about.

I own more Saturn games than any other 32-bit machine.

I thought Europeans had hundreds of Amiga CD32 games.

Ha, no! I do vaguely remember a few adverts and a bit of coverage for the Amiga CD32 in the early 90s and there seemed to be a few attempts to try and get it to catch on. My only real memory of the Amiga CD32 was in the reader section of a GamesMaster magazine (UK magazine) in the early-mid 90s, someone wrote in to the magazine to ask if they should buy a Amiga CD32 or wait for the 'upcoming' Sony Playstation. Needless to say, the magazine staff took the piss a little bit and advised waiting for the Playstation or Saturn.

I should point out that I was also including the N64 in that (forgetting, of course, it was actually 64-bit). I just meant the fifth generation basically.

My bias is too strong for that era. Saturn in a distant first for me.
