I am relativly new to the whole Saturn scene. What games are must-haves? Try to atleast list your top 20 (more if you like). This will help me and other out a lot, thanks. Also if you can say what type of a game it is that would help.

Yea, these "best saturn games" topics are getting used far too often. Look through the forum first, you would be surprised at how many times the same questions have been asked like this.
In no particular order:

Virtua Cop

Virtua Fighter 2

MArvel vs Street Fighter

Panzer Dragoon Saga

Thunder Force V

Shinobi: Leigons

I'd reccomend avoiding:

Lunar: Magic School - Whoemever wrote the story to this game should be shot, no wonder Working Designs wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole (not that I like WD)

Albert Odyssey - Yo Mamma' jokes don't sit well with me in video games. There was defenitly a lot of rewirting for American audience sint his script

Terra Phantastica - This game just never really got going. Pretty artwork though

Dragon Force 2 - Nowhere near as good as the original and the original wasn't all that impressive

Langrisser III - Unless you're a diehard fan of the Langrisser story, this game doesn't offer much for you

Konami MSX Antiques Collection - A very collectable disc, but unles you really want to play these games ona saturn instead of on your Dreamcast or PC ina n emulator, it's not worth your time

Sakura Taisen: Joukai Rajio Show - A hardcore fan collector disc. Not worth it unless you're a raving fan of the series

Sonic Jam - Aside from a save feature and being able to watch the commercials, it offers nothing that the original 4 sonic games didn't on Genesis

Final Fight Revenge - I love final fight and I own this disc but I'll level with you, it's a very very lame game and shouldn't be bought unless you really just love the idea of playing as Haggar in a 3D fighter.
I would earnestly add Black/Matrix to the top (or at least near the top) of anyone's Saturn must-have lists. It's one of those games that you just gotta experience.
