RIP Saturn: 5/11/1995 – 11/30/1998

Today marks the 9th anniversary of the last US-released Sega Saturn game – Magic Knight Rayearth, released 11/30/1998.

It’s tempting to rant about how many mistakes Sega made, both with the Saturn and then with the Dreamcast after it.

It’s even tempting to get a little below-the-belt jab in about the current console wars.

But, there’s no way I could do the ranting any better than the folks at UK:Resistance,  so I won’t try.

On a more positive note, it’s tempting to post up a bunch of photos, or to go on and on about how great the system was.

But I realized that I don’t need to do that.  If you were a Sega fan at the time, then pretty much all you need is the reminder:

Something was great, and you were a part of it, and now it’s gone.

Remember.
