Yesterday, I found a near-mint condition Sega Saturn console, complete in box, at a recycle shop in Yamanashi. I bought it because (confession time) I’ve never played a Sega Saturn in my life! It’s always been my biggest blind spot, growing up as a Genesis kid and a Dreamcast fan. Along with the console, I got Panzer Dragoon, Daytona USA, and Virtua Fighter 2, because they were 300 yen each, and because they seemed pretty representative of the Saturn.
Now I must humbly ask the insert credit forums for help, because you all seem like some folks who know about the Saturn.
1) Can I burn ISOs to a disc and play them pretty easily, like I can do with the Dreamcast? Some legit Saturn games are real cheap, but others sure are not!
2) What games do you reckon are the best examples of Sega Saturn-specific fun? I’m aware of the legendary, canonical ones (like Nights, Panzer Dragoon Saga) but not much else. I like all genres, and Japanese language is not a barrier to entry.
Thanks in advance to anyone who’s kind enough to offer their thoughts.
