    Default Top 20 (Best) U.S. Saturn Games. (2008) - Round 1: Over - Please Lock.

    Head over to the new thread and discuss the nominees.
    New Thread: http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=119520



    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ===========================================
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Opinions change over time. Some games remain in the top 20, regardless the year you take a poll. Other games just don't age well enough to make the cut anymore. I located DP's Official Top 20 Saturn Games. (2002) thread and I think it is time we see if opinions have changed. Throw your suggestions in this thread, and on July 18th, I will create a new poll so we can, together, determine the best of the best! DP's polling options won't facilitate such a large poll so I will host the final poll elsewhere. That gives us a month, so do your research and play your games! There is no rush.

    RULES:
    1: All games from the 2002 list will be on the 2008 poll.
    2: Three votes adds a game to the poll. If a game isn't good enough to get three votes...then it probably doesn't belong on the list.
    3: Only U.S. released games qualify. No prototypes or imports.
    4: Any number of games may be on our poll.

    I'd nominate "3 Dirty Dwarfs" off the top of my head. Probably more later on when I have more time to think.

    I will second "Three Dirty Dwarfs". Fantastic game that I'm surprised to not see on this list.

    I would like to nominate "Clockwork Night" and "Burning Rangers" also. How these two Saturn classics could escape a top twenty list is beyond me!

    Winter Heat is a classic in the same league as Konami's Track & Field series, and one of the best multi-player games for the system. If anything, Sonic 3D Blast needs to make its way off that list. I will second Panzer Dragoon though, and also Burning Rangers.


    The GREATEST travesty though is... how the hell did Mr Bones not make the original list???? Let's get that one up on there.

    Street Fighter Collection and Sonic Jam were also good, but might miss the list because they were compilations of older games. Mass Destruction is a personal favorite of mine as well, but probably not worthy of cracking the Top 20.



    For those curious, EGM did it's own Top 10 Saturn games in its 1999 Video Game Buyer's Guide. The countdown was as follows:

    10. Guardian Heroes
    9. Virtua Fighter 2
    8. Sega Rally
    7. NiGHTS
    6. Winter Heat
    5. Dragon Force
    4. Saturn Bomberman
    3. Street Fighter Collection
    2. Shining Force III
    1. Panzer Dragoon Saga

    No top 20 Saturn US list is complete without Street Fighter Collection. (SFA 2, SSF2 and SSF2 Turbo).

    I also nominate Galactic Attack.

    And I can't believe House of the Dead is on there. A game like Baku Baku Animal, Bust-A-Move 2 or even Pandemonium! is far more deserving than HotD IMHO. Don't get me wrong, Saturn port while UGLY it played OK, but TOP 20? Farce. PowerSlave (or any of the Lobotomy trilogy) deserves more recognition.

    Hell, Sonic 3D Blast should be automatically replaced with Sonic Jam, compilation or not.

    how can street fighter: the movie: the game not be on that list?

    seriously, it's one of the most unintentionally hilarious ways to spend a drunken saturday night with friends.

    Powerslave, Burning Rangers, and Steep Slope Sliders should be in there. I also agree that HOTD should probably not be in the top 20.

    *has flashbacks to DP's Top 100 All time*

    ...

    *shoots self*


    Anyway - consider this a nomination for both Grid Runner and Clockwork Knight... how'd we miss those back then?

    Do the games have to be Saturn exclusive? I'm guessing no since Sonic 3D Blast is up there.

    I vote Mega Man X4. A great game.

    I'll throw in votes for Darius Gaiden and Tempest 2000.

    I'll also say that NiGHTS should be taken off the list, but I suppose I'll probably be the only one supporting that endeavor.
