I won't post the full intro, but I liked this moment at the beginning of Omikron (aka The Nomad Soul), just before the mech turns and walks off:

Amazing intro. We rarely see animated intro's anymore esp ones so detailed.

I have now played the game in both Original and Remix. But man while each time you play is about 15-20 min there is so many paths to choose. Might take 40 times to get it all :P

Really fantastic game and only 400 MS points (5$) Fuck me man playing this stuff makes me long how how awesome 90's gaming was.

Call it what you will -
a revelation from god, or a curse of the demon king.
The fact remains that our world came to an end.
A heretic called upon an unearthly light and devastation ensued.
Chaos crawled out of the depths of the ocean, from the black abyss.
Death upon death, nothing but death in this barren land.
Who can we pray to? There are only demons and fiends here.
A voice me in the dark beguiles me,
"Truth is a mystery, unraveled by the candles' flames."

From the journal of a Man Who Wandered into Another World.

It's on my mind, so I may as well post it.
Always thought this was great. Hadn't seen it in a long time, until I finally popped the game in a little more recently. Such great integration of music and visuals. Good nostalgia, too.
Not sure what that crazy broad is doing though, taking a stroll in high heels down a Ridge Racer track. Doesn't seem like an entirely wise decision.

"Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath". Amazing, vast and creative game for the original XBox.

Resident Evil, even though it was filmed with real actors instead of game graphics:

Resident Evil 2:

Resident Evil 3, cant help but feel bad for all those cops:

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night:

A lot of it has to do with the fact that I love these games.

Only just saw this for the first time, and I love it already, if only for the fact that it features the only 3D render I've ever seen of Albatross from Rolling Thunder. :D
From Namco Museum Encore, the only volume of the Namco Museum series on the PS1 that we didn't get outside of Japan.
