    from a good friend at work. What games should I pick up? I mostly enjoy 2D shooters and platform games. Any suggestions? :)

    You can change the internal battery. There is a cover on the back that leads to it.

    Based on your preferences, you need at least all of the following (in no particular order):

    Mega Man / Rockman 8
    Strikers 1945
    Strikers 1945 II
    ShienRyu
    Radiant Silvergun
    Macross: Do You Remember Love
    Sonic Wings Special (a.k.a. Aerofighters)
    Thunder Force V
    Hyper Duel

    Most of these will have to be imported.

    the saturn seems to have a minor cult following, well maybe!

    I keep mine mainly to play x-men vs street fighter.

    Nights Into Dreams is a pretty good one.

    There's a strategy/RPG game called Dragon Force, which I thought was pretty sweet.

    Other titles are Darius Gaiden, Guardian Heroes, Virtua Cop, Night Warriors and X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

    I actually had a lot more fun with the saturn then I did with the Dreamcast, but that was probably also due to how it was my first CD based system, so I was pretty wowed.

    Anyways, here are some great games for it:

    Dragon Force
    Albert Odyssey
    Astal
    Panzer Dragoon (Series, all good)
    Clockwork Knight 1 and 2
    Virtua Fighter 2
    Guardian Heroes
    Mr Bones
    Sonic Jam
    Sega Rally

    These are all non imports, by the way. There's some amazing stuff that didn't get released here, unfortunately.

    The three most expensive games you'll buy are:

    Panzer Dragoon Saga
    Radiant Silvergun (import)
    Dragon Force

    I personally also love: Street Fighter Zero 3 and Vampire Savior (both import, you'll need a 4MB cart to play them)
