I'm going to have to look these up sometime. I don't have a current gen platform. What are my options? Are they on GOG?


Yep, the Dragon's Trap remake is already on GOG. The Monster Boy PC port is coming.

Another one I thought of is that I like a lot of the realistic character models used in Japanese PS2 games. Like Silent Hill, Haunting Ground, some JRPGs of the time, etc.

I think it's nostalgia. A lot of those games were ones I was enamored with at the time despite not having a PS2.

I like the cell-shaded style Sega used for Jet Set Radio. Had lasting impact on the industry.

Uhh, in this case I mean realistic compared to other stuff at the time? In not sure what you are confused about.

I really miss seeing game looking like this. Pillars not the same and it didn't scratch my itch.

I really liked the pre-rendered isometric look as well. The less dark version of it lent itself really nicely to management sims and had a charm that modern fully 3D ones just don't have for me.
