FinalBaton: Yep, after playing through the game, you don't expect such a dose of spite - gallows humour, literally. :P

BIL: Sanvein is absolutely brimming with 90s flair Image I'm finding the gameplay only so-so, although certainly innovative, and the production values, for being a budget title, are quite robust!

reckon luck: love that maxell spot :D

This is my thread, it was made for me!!!

I know it's been mentioned but METAL BLACK

I'm surprised Freedom Force hasn't been mentioned yet, everyone loves the Freedom Force intro! The last bit of the intro got removed in the final release. Here's the full thing.

I've always liked Fire Barrel's quick intro for some reason.

Oh and of course ELEMENTAL MASTER

Nice thread, will devour all suggestions here.

First attract mode that sprang to mind for me, was the one for Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter;

The voiceover generates tons of hype.

Bloodstorm
I used to just stare at this one forever. Kinda ass game, but this and Timekillers were at least sorta neat in how you could lose limbs and still brawl away.

First I've heard of that one - tres noir, I dig! Image

While Deathtiny's CG intro is perfunctory in comparison to past-gen STG highlights (the work itself being characteristically stratospheric Shottriggers quality), I love its newsreel glimpses of EVAC behemoths. Gives them a scary cryptozoological aspect.

Speaking of earlier-gen CG highlights: PS2 Gradius III & IV.

Duck you fuckers! Image Wait. I mean fuck you Duckers! Image The more conventionally filmic of the pair, a Star Wars-inflected glimpse of Gradius II. Besides its flyer-worthy images of BIGCORE duelling, the authentically fraught close combat reminds me of Gaiden's classily reserved intro - or from that same year, the superbly fronted Mars Matrix (DC).

Much trippier! But Gradius III's DEATH CHEERIOS are treated with deserving gravity! Thumping Yamaoka BGM and discomfortingly pulsing organs evoke not only Beatmania, but also Silent Hill 2's much-loved Fukuro (AKA: Pyramid-kun's DokiDoki Basement Fuck Fest) and Kinoko (AKA: You Look Just Like My Dead Wife! The Ballad of Jimmy James). I wonder if any personnel were shared... the CG guys for SH1-4 were some A1 crack team killers. Also brings to mind Shattered Soldier with the pointed lack of any subtitling or numerals, just a "sup motherfucker?" GRADIUS.
