The lights are on
Panzer Dragoon was one of the Sega Saturn's launch titles here in the U.S. It also happens to be one of the finest video games ever crafted by human hands. But how has the title aged? Flawlessly. Don't believe us? Check it out for yourself.
Watch Jeff Cork, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and Bryan Vore fire polygons out of the air using the mouth lasers of a dragoon.

Great game guys, solid pick for a replay. looking forward to the Extra Life. I'm in it too!
Still one of my all time favorites, what a fun game. I have played them all and can't wait for crimson dragon in a few weeks!!
I Love Panzer Dragoon I got all the games, including Saga!
Panzer Dragoon replay?! But, Extra Life...
That looked like something I would have loved as a kid.
I would love to see a Saga Super Replay. It's just one of those mythical games that I feel a lot of people are missing from their history. I'd love to play it but I'll never find a copy. Surely there's one in the vault?
I would watch the *** out of a Hydlide Super Replay. There's something oddly fascinating about it. Kinda like Zelda II, I just want to watch someone actually figure it out and get good at it. You should seriously consider it! If not as a Super Replay then as some kind of extended look.
My hydlide from my childhood would be Dragon Seeds. I could never get past making my dragon and winning the first fight, and i tried to get my friends to see if we could do it but nope it was just too much for our 10 year old dumb selves! I miss going to blockbuster on 3 day weekends from school and getting to play some random PlayStation games those were some good times.
I'm not very good at rail-shooters, but Panzer Dragoon 1, Zwei, and Orta are all awesome games! Saga is a great RPG as well, and even if certain aspects haven't aged too well its story is still excellent and its battle system and dragon evolution system are one of a kind! Its soundtrack is also gorgeous, second only to Xenogears as far as 32-bit RPGs go.
Sigh, a piece of gaming history that I never got to witness. Great replay, guys!

This was without a doubt my favourite game of all time.
I feel like this series deserves a Super Replay. The first two and last games are short, incredibly cinematic and exhilarating rail shooters while the third is the most watchable RPG ever, with a shortish length, adjustable cutscene speed and quick, gorgeous battles. Heck, a new generation of people who have seen Saga all the way through could propel that game back into the limelight where it belongs and possibly prompt a rerelease (if they find the source code).
