Crazy Sensory Overload Psychedelic “Whoa Look At All Those Colors” type games

I love this about No More Heroes, especially 3. It's just sights and sounds being thrown at you from every direction, and I especially love the splashes of color when you're slashing aliens. It excites my brain.

And Katamari definitely falls into this for me, there's so much going on in the world and on the HUD and even during dialog sequences.

Never played it but now I think I need to!

Lineless 2D art with really good colors has always struck a very particular center of my tastes

Literally any screenshot from Dustforce illustrates this well

I don't think any game's aesthetic has ever wedged itself as far into my psyche as this one. I can't even think of a good second example! Though there are certainly at least _some_.

In the issue of Weekly Famitsu published in 9th of September 1994, Itoi refers to the battle backgrounds as a “Video Relaxant.” The Video Relaxant was going to be an in-game item and was originally referred to as a “Video Drug”. It can still be found in the game's files. It has no function and the description of the item is “What the hey is this?”

and, yeah, I really don't need to post this, it goes without saying

@“sdate”#p129885 the mirror’s edge DLC maps

hell yes! obviously the main game had a very strong aesthetic but it just wasn't very fun. the DLC courses were super fun and served as fresh fruit for the eyes after the story mode.
