Quite simply I'm asking you all which Dreamcast game is the best looking. Obviously beauty is in the eye of the beholder and each person will have a different point of view. I accept that it's very subjective but am interested in all perspectives.
Mine would be:
Rez - There must have been a time when Kandinsky (an influential artist whose work inspired Tetsuya Mizuguchi to make Rez) went from painting ordinary compositions to realising a more abstract aesthetic was needed to express himself. I played ordinary looking games before Rez and all of a sudden WHAM ! I'd never look at games the same way again.
JSR - OK, cell shading has been done many times since this game but JSR still looks fresh, bold, cool and colourful. A cartoon come to life, it's well gorgeous
Shenmue - Yes, the game tried to be 'realistic' but it never really worked out that way. No, it was far too beautiful to be real !! Even though you felt like you were in a living, breathing world, It still looked like a Sega videogame through and through. It's ART, I won't listen to anyone who says otherwise ! lol
Last Blade 2 - Whoever dreamt up the backgrounds and characters then translated them into some of the most breathtakingly gorgeous pixels to ever grace a videogame, well they deserve a place with the gaming gods. Achingly beautiful and eminently playable too.
Cosmic Smash - The look of this game combines elements of colour, lines, shapes and light which together paint a very purdy picture. It's certainly not just a pretty face though, this game is cool and minimalist with psychedelic touches yet also plays like the perfect arcade experience.
You might agree with me, you might not !! Whatever, just list one, or as many as you like, of games that really stand out to you as being beautiful in some way. I want to try and get the full spectrum of opinions if possible
