Top 50 Sega Saturn Games

A while back I help organize a top 50 list of Saturn games over at SegaXtreme
I’m going to try to tweak the list a bit more here in the near future.
A catogorized list (by genre) will be added later

  5. what about Casper? LOL! Just a personal favourite of mine…

    Steep Slope Sliders? Really? What about games like Astal, Blazing Heroes, Sonic Jam, Mr. Bones, Enemy Zero and the Japanese Last Bronx? It’s nice to see Powerslave get some love though – I still haven’t played a tighter-feeling console FPS.

  7. The Dude says:

    Here’s a couple honorable mentions worth dusting off your Saturn for: Clockwork Knight (1&2) and Darius Gaiden.

    Yeah, Vampire Savior deserves to be on the list. This Saturn game is by far the best Darkstalkers game to come to consoles, thanks to the more recent botched efforts on the Dreamcast and PS2, that by all means should have been at least as good yet failed to impress.

    Now that I think about it, where is Magic Knight Rayearth? I coulda sworn that woulda been on the list.

    WTF? Where the hell is Panzer Dragoon Saga?? 😀

    50 games is a really odd length for greatest Saturn games… there are about 15 non-obscure classics, then like, a hundred more great one that no average gamer has ever heard of. So to put it at a number like 50, you start to delve into those great, largely undiscovered classics, but you leave so many out that it seems unnecessary to have delved so deep into the Saturn’s library at all. I think a top 75 or 100 would be much more effective, seeing as so many of those obscure titles touched on here are of such equally high quality.

    I feel this list is slightly flawed… I mean Lunar 2: Eternal Blue? Seriously? The Saturn version is in Japanese for Christ’s sake. The ps1 version…in English…is far superior.

    Same for Grandia.

    Eh.. this is a really old list.
    Go ahead and browse through here instead:

    Haha I didn’t realize this post was from 2005. Although an update would be cool if this list is no longer current.

    Where’s Astal? I was really surprised when that one wasn’t on the list. It’s on IGN’s top 10 Saturn games, although that list really makes the Saturn look like crap…
