So, I'm kind of officially an old man when it comes to games now. Over my 20+ years of playing games, I've kinda seen most of the consoles. I'd probably say that most of them have a very specific aesthetic to them. Like, the SNES was very soft edges, and a bright colour palette. The 360 was...for want of a better phrase "Brown and bloom".
However, for me, it's ALL about the Sega Mega Drive. The colour scheme was SO RADICALLY different, and the sound chip was revolutionary. If you've played Crue Ball or Rock and Roll Racing (and if you haven't, I encourage them), you'll know how good it can sound.
So what about you friends? Be it visuals or audio, what stands out for you most, and why?
