I just had one of those retro flashbacks when I looked through an old article about the SEGA Saturn. And It´s kind of funny now that I think about. You see. I grew up playing on SEGA´s Master System and Mega Drive console in the late 80s and early 90s. Even so, I never bought the SEGA Saturn console. Then again, I don´t recall ever seeing a lot of TV-ads or magazine ads for the Saturn in Sweden. In the matter of fact, most of the Swedish Gaming media focused on Sony´s Playstation. So I was mainly playing on PS1, PC, MD and Snes at the time.

The SEGA Saturn has quite a lot of awesome games, especially Japanese import games.

And truth be told, I only knew one single person in my town who owned a Saturn console. So there wasn´t all that many people who talked about the Saturn at school. So I knew very little about the console (I knew that it existed, but not enough to be interested in buying one). I should also point out that the Saturn was pretty expensive when it launched in Sweden (which it did in July, 1995).

I think it´s safe to say that the SEGA Saturn has never looked any better than it does in this picture.

However, around the year 2000, I started to realize that there are quite a few Saturn games worth owning (especially when it comes to Japanese imported games). And speaking of which, just the other day I heard about a Japanese SEGA Saturn fangirl called Polylina (Aka “SEGA Saturn GAL“). Well, what can I say? Besides the fact that I haven´t seen or heard about a person that´s more hardcore dedicated to the SEGA Saturn console than she is. And by the looks of the pictures that Polylina has uploaded to her social media accounts. She owns quite a few other games and consoles as well (she even owns her very own arcade machine).

Talk about having a hardcore dedication for SEGA Saturn.

So if you´re into SEGA Saturn (and retro games in general), then check out Polylina´s homepage plus social media pages for more pictures and information (you will find everything you need down below).

    Good thing Sony ran Sega out of console gaming. Nintendo is next, then Xbox.

    • Ryo Shenmue

      Except SEGA and Nintendo are the best videogames makers of all time. Sony doesn’t even come close, sadly.

        “SEGA and Nintendo are the best videogames makers of all time”,…… sees Sonic games and Nintendo current consoles…so yeeeaahh very “intelligent” comment.. sheszzzz :/

        • SEGA and Nintendo had tons of awesome games and consoles back in the days. I can give them that much. However, it´s 2016 now. And times have changed, and both companies are not as awesome as they used to be.

        lol. Nice joke.

    • That wouldn´t be a really good idea imo, as that would give Sony monopoly on the console market. I hardly doubt that it will happen though.

  • J.j. Barrington

    Cute.

    Daytonaaaaaa!!! I’ve just set-up a little retrogaming corner in my bedroom, complete with a good ol’ CRT Philips television and a pair of vintage Sennheiser headphones, and the first console I’ve fired up was the Saturn! I’ve always been a Nintendo fan, but the Saturn has gained this “underdog” aura which makes it fascinating and fun to play too! Also, and for testing-purposes only, rare/japanese roms are easy to find and the Pseudo Saturn hack makes it a breeze to play them on any console.
