I’m interested in power lines in the oldest games, where it has to be very intentional.

I think SEGA bass fishing 2 may have some very low key power lines in the background of one of the more urban bodies of water

Every armored core game has countless lines you can stampede over.

@“Yim”#p149620 i feel like most bgs wouldn't have enough vertical space from the earlier eras. kof had a few though.

@“Yim”#p149620 Yeah, my guess is that such details easily fall into the background or off entirely in fighting games.

Chun Li's level in Street Fighter 2 has utility poles, but it's hard to see given the health bar ([Mobygames](https://www.mobygames.com/game/6239/street-fighter-ii/screenshots/amiga/686983/)):

It's only really visible outside of the game ([Capcom](https://captown.capcom.com/en/museums/streetfighter/5/images/142)):

Fragile Dreams </s>~Farewell Ruins of the Moon</s>~ (2009) uses a lot of utility line silhouettes to frame its characters in nighttime scenes.

Last pic is official art for the game.

@“treefroggy”#p149559 I saw the link to that Densen video pop up while googling Fragile Dreams and did a double-take!! Gimme dat! Cut me off a slice of that!!! (leak builds of the game I can play on my PS2 please)

From [Niche Gamer](https://nichegamer.com/densen-the-cancelled-game-that-inspired-ico-katamari-damacy-and-shadow-of-the-colossus-sure-looked-fun/):

All jokes aside, the game was being developed internally by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., and it was helmed by Kiyoshi Sakai, an animator who worked with Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata before they formed Studio Ghibli. Sakai later became famous for the Umihara Kawase series, which is still seeing new media, the latest being the release of Yumi’s Odd Odyssey on the Nintendo 3DS.

The video came from the October 1999 issue of the Playstation 2 magazine プレプレPLUS.


Norco needs to do something about these clouds — They're distracting from the utility poles >:(



Here are some of my own Yakuza 3 utility poles screenshots.

@“TaliesinMerlin”#p149960 I just started this and I'm already enjoying it more than I was 0. I may continue to peck at it.

Oh yeah, I guess Dobuita in Shenmue had them too.

This is probably cheating because it's just America(n Truck Simulator)
