I love SEGA! Everything about them. I just wish that Sammy never took over. Hopefully they can continue to rebuild financially and take more risks!

Sammy was a good thing for SEGA,
SEGA actually pulled them selves out of the red almost a year before
Sammy merge so they wouldnt have gone bankrupt..
But SEGA at the momment seem to be on the road to recovery
with some very decent titles and very interesting titles on the way.

That almost deffinitly wouldnt have happened with out Sammy
SEGA would still be making low budget crap like they were in 02,03 and 04.

Yeah but Sega still has more better IP's if you count all time.

You can all just go to hell! If we were to list titles with at least 1 good game in the series, Konami would out do Sega. And I aint tlaking published titles. I'm talking inhouse developed. Yeah thats right, I can hear you SHAKING now!

And no, I do mean Saturn. They had quite alot of excellent titles on that thing. The DX had far less despite being awesome, so Saturn stands in my original sentance! Unless you lot ignored the saturn and ran off to the psx land.

Not me. I don't believe you. I could list more just as bgm said simply because of the genesis days. It also doesn't change the fact that sega is still **** right now.

psx had more better games sure. But the saturn still had a few dozen that were legendary. Didnt help quite alot of good games were japanese only. Sega were idiots for not translating alot of things.

Sorry Auss boss I wasn't trying to set you off but:

1) I didn't ignore Saturn, the third party did because it was too damn hard to program for.
2) Saturn ignored me by not releasing enough games to make me happy. They were too busy pouting and using excuses about how the third party wouldn't make games for Saturn instead of getting their own people up off their ass and putting them to work making games!
3) I hung around Saturn till about 97 when I finally had to admit they had no clue, SEGA FORCED ME INTO PS1 LAND!

Saturn owned. You had to tap into the japanese only games to truly appreciate the system.
