Agree - at the time they were new I'd say the PSX was a much better console but today the Saturn offers a more unique experience.
Like you I was shocked at how bad PSX games look now, I thought they were amazing at the time (which they were). I remember thinking Ridge Racer was arcade perfect - is it hell!
