Shinning Force would be hard to aquire!
I cannot believe that nobody has recommended the majestic wonder that is Shining Force III! Easily my favourite RPG of all time and although the second and third parts are Japanese-only, the first part is good enough on its own to justify a purchase. Just make sure you pick up a memory cartridge as well, 'cos it takes up a stupid amount of memory.
It is a desired title by Saturn Collectors including myself. I didn't mention Shining Force 3 since I don't own it and I am still somewhat of new Saturn owner after owning the system for for 17 months. The only way I would get it right now is if I find at a decent price like I did for a couple of the games I recommended since there is a good amount of Saturn games that I still want to get.
Shining Force 3's big issue is the cost of it.

I actually have a few different Shining Force games for the Saturn and was unaware that there might be a collectible nature to any of them. Are some of them pricey/rare?
Currently own: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, iPad, PC's, WP7 Phone and a Vita. Who you callin' a fanboy?!

If you have a North American Version of Shining Force 3, it is more pricey than rare. It is around a 3 in rarity for North America Saturn releases on a 1 to 10 scale. Shining Force 3 goes over a $100.00 on ebay and on some online stores when it is in stock. It is caused by the demand of the game.
Shining Force 3 is most common out of the 1998 Sega Saturn game releases in North America.

Lots of great recommendations, but the best FPS on saturn IMO is exhumed or powerslave as its known in the US.
I paid about £35 for my SFIII at launch and probably the same for each of the two Scenarios from Japan after that. Best money I ever spent on a game. Shining Force III is the best of the bunch but Shining the Holy Ark is also awesome - an old-school, first-person dungeon-crawler that's like Shining in the Darkness, if you've played, but much better. Lovely music but probably showing its age now. Shining Wisdom is available too, which is more of a Zelda-style game, though I haven't actually played my Japanese copy since buying it...
"SNK made some good ports of their games, but you have to mod your Saturn, because they used special RAM and ROM Carts for their games, so you can't use an Adaptercart" - King of Fighters '95 was released in the UK, did it not get a US release too? I agree the Japanese ones are the way to go, Real Bout Special is awesome and KoF '97 is among my favourites in the series.
I agree with Reala - Powerslave/Exhumed is also a phenomenal game and well ahead of its time.
Also, NiGHTS into Dreams is still (in my eyes) the greatest videogame ever created, so buy that one with the analogue pad immediately.

Yeah while most Sega Saturn games are fairly cheap, the really good ones cost an arm and a leg!
