I have been holding on to my Saturn collection since back in the day and have come to the decision that it is time to find it a new home. I love, LOVE this freaking system but we all know how the story goes. Kids come along, gaming time becomes premium, my kids do not play video games so I figure now is a good time to pull the trigger on cutting the cord. I will be lurking around here for a little while but I will be honest with you...the thought of getting up to thirty posts discussing the subject that is about to break my heart just breaks my heart. Heck, took me a few days to convince myself to register for this site just to start talking about it.
Plus there is the fact that I only have one TV that I can plug a Saturn into. It sits wrapped in a blanket, in storage, and weighs something around 1500lbs. Way too much effort to actually set it all up. I actually had to order an RF switch in order to connect to an inside TV and test the ol' girl out. Looks like hot sh*t on a current TV, how is coax still a standard thing?
Anyways I know that may sound a bit obsessive but I mean, it is the Sega Saturn we are talking about here. Anybody reading this knows the feeling I am describing. For being the third place, third generation system, it is the one that for my money has held up. Not only held up but the games are still some of the most fun games I have ever played. Even games I missed that I can now play on other platforms are ridiculously entertaining (Radiant Silvergun, I am looking at you). Sega Saturn games have so much staying power because the games have so much soul. It is really, really, REALLY hard to walk away from that BUT I know that whomever happens to swoop up any part of my collection knows the exact same thing and will take good care of it.
So yeah, there ya go. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Like I said, I will lurk around and try to get that heart breaking post count up in order to hit up the marketplace. Thanks for reading!
