I knew some guy that had one once, he did tell me about how much better the Resident evil port was going to be.
I think the Saturn is a good source for obscure 2d japanese only releases. But it does have a few great exclusives.
Sega rally, Virtua fighter 2, Nights into dreams, Burning rangers, Die hard arcade, Panzer dragoon and Sonic R.
But those that didn't make it to Europe (not so sure about the US market).
Shining force 3, Radiant silvergun, Guardian heroes, Linkle Liver Story (a spiritual sequel to my favourite Megadrive game Soleil!). Also it had Castlevania Symphony of the Night if i recall.

Gex is great. Also, Rayman (if you don't have it for any other console for whatever reason, it's quite a polished version).
...I need to expand my own collection a bit. Didn't have one as a child either, but now I do.
Nights: Into Dreams was also released on PS2... but only in Japan! The idiots! I despised the Wii sequel. And no, never had a Saturn, but always wanted one, especially after getting a copy of Christmas Nights with a magazine and looking at a video of it.
I love my saturn but I am willing to take off the rose tinted glasses unlike some. There are some great games, and for the cost to get one nowadays, it's definitely worth it. But had I blown the $200-$400 they were asking in its heyday, I probably would have had some regrets. I'm also not super-into a lot of the genres that most saturn fans are in love with (2D fighters, rpgs, bullet hell shooters). But it does have some great games;
Panzer Dragoon Zwei
Sonic Jam (the 3D world was pretty cool)
Three Dirty Dwarves
Burning Rangers (not worth the hype but still cool)
