@nekroskop: I've been banging the low-poly, low-rez, 32-bit era drum for years now. I grew up in that era, I realize all these 32 year old developers are interesting in showing me their experience with the 2600, the NES and the SNES, but my experiences are the NES, SNES and PS1. Those PS1 ideals are the ones I've rarely seen recreated. I've seen games that look like awesome SNES games, fewer that look like awesome PS1 games.
Hydrophobia is actually something that reminded me of PS1 games, but maybe that's because it's so fucked up control and camera-wise and a lot of ps1 games were.
