Someone told me that they had 3 reasons why they didn’t want to buy the Saturn:
- F***ing stupid launch idea/price
- Final Fantasy 7
- Sega of America saying 1 year after the release, “The Saturn isn’t our future”
- Oh and, no Segata Sanshiro
- Saturn didn’t have a Sonic game.
For me here, were my 3 reason:
I was sorta a cheap asshole and not really a gamer. I regret not buying the SNES and PSX and that peak.
Maybe I’ll change it so that it’s
- No FF7
- I owned a 64
Like seriously? What was my mindset?
I owned a 64. As good as the games were for that, I was more of an RPG person, and I fucking owned an N64. What’s up with that? And I never owned an official SNES and bought the PSX after it went for $50. Way to support! I know!
The Saturn was just a great experience when I bought ganes for my cousin.
Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game. Great graphics.
Batman Forever: The Arcade Game, one of the best Batman games of all time.
The 3D wasn’t there yet.
Sure, Playstation had a lot of good RPGs, probably the best quality outside of the SNES and N64 had good first party/Rare games. But still.
The Saturn was innovative:
The underrated port of Sonic 3D Blast
Forget, Tekken! It was the best fighting console:
X-Men vs Street Fighter
Street Fighter Alpha 3
It had friggin 8 processors, which is still a rare feat 20 years later.
Dat control stick.
It was a good time for fans of old school gaming.
