(poll) So with going by the native library for both these consoles, which of the two system actually had the better Library? Both have a slew of imports, but if you were just an average joe in the 90's you were likely buying from a U.S. shop and not imported games very often if at all.
Personally I would consider to have the best library of the two. Why?
3DO: Need For Speed (best version), Slayer, Gex (slightly better version), Arcade Samurai Showdown, Best version of SSF2T at the time, Killing Time, Star Control 2, Exclusive enhanced Star Blade, Road Rash 3DO, Blade Force, Space Hulk (more stable version, cleaner image), and FlashBack CD.
I feel that the 3DO had both familiar big names and new names to its roster and that invited a lot more variety and a more structured library. But for the Saturn I feel that it was mostly just shoddy ports (for the most part not always) of Segas arcade software and a few outliers. A lot of Saturn games, especially in 3D, had that same brownish/gray grainy filter look. Not to mention 3DO had third party (as well as more exclusives than people think) on lock, which the Saturn had trouble getting while its japanese competitor Sony had gained most of the third party support. Even with Imports I would argue the same thing though the Saturn gains a bit in that regard but this thread is without imports so...
Saturn: Virtua Cop, Virtua Fighter, Megaman 8, Daytona. Deep Fear, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Fighting Vipers, Last Bronx, Bug!, Burning, Magic Carpet, and Guardian Heroes
One thing I would give the Saturn is Sega throwing around similar engines for fighting games in their arcades allowed them (and third parties) to bring a good number of 3D ones to the Saturn. Which is a genre that's lacking on the 3DO. As well as 2D side scrolling shooters. However 3DO basically got everything else due to third party relationships and their own studios aiming for a variety of genres.(when mentioning 3DO assume high-end panasonic machine not any other format of 3DO released)
