I had a Saturn and there were some really good games for it, but they all seemed to come from their AM2 division. Apparently the Saturn was difficult to program and take advantage of the hardware it had, while the Playstation was pretty easy to program for.
Virtua Fighter 2 had great graphics as did that game Nights.
