This is so intensely my Aesthetic it hurts.

It makes me so god damn happy that games are starting to take the gorgeous low-poly look of PSX era games with modern hardware. The Dark Souls video from these folks is cute with those stick-figure animations and all, but I’d play the absolute living hell out of a PSX era styled Dark Souls game with modern niceties.

I think it’s missing the classic “90s videogames commercial” soundtracks that sound like EDM played through a wall.
