There's something calming about playing these early 3d cyberpunk games such as G-Police, BHunter or Galapagos

I can't really get into "realistic" games or fantasy ones, these don't seem to mesh so well with incredibly small textures and polygons you can count on one hand

Well these look fascinating. Thanks for the heads up.

Omikron is a pretty weird cyberpunk styled 3D adventure from 1999 for the Dreamcast and Windows 9X PC. It was made by Quantic Dream, written/ directed by David Cage, and soundtrack by David Bowie.

quarantine is sadly the opposite of calming due to the aggressive AI (literally everyone wants to kill you, although only a few do it actively) and the poor handling. still a pretty atmospheric game, though.

It's one of those game I played a lot on the demo disc, but never tried the retail version.

nope. it's just a very bare bones wolfenstein 3d-clone, enginewise. although it does have some cool features like textured floors/ceilings and room-over-room mechanics. there are a few places where you can use lifts to access elevated highways and even rooftops, but' it's not really integrated into the missions.

it's not a very good driving game, but it's still worth playing solely for the visuals and the atmosphere.

Omikron is pretty weird, to be honest. The game is a bit like Shenmue in some ways, but it actually has a much larger world to explore. It's actually like Shenmue combined with the Shiny game Messiah.

You control an entity called the Nomad Soul and posses characters in the game to use their special abilities. The game is mostly like an adventure title, but has 3D fighting combat like Shenmue or Virtua Fighter. There are also these really awkward FPS styled shooting sections.

David Bowie voices two characters in the game and even provides may music tracks.

True but it's also extremely much emptier and more sparse. There's little to none of Shenmue's detail.

>> No.5115018


Omikron sadly falls apart towards the end too - it builds up the world and this massive revolution you have to ignite, then rushes you through a few puzzles and combat areas before giving you a magic sword and telling you to kill the final boss.

It's still one of my favourite games though because everything before that is a super comfy cyberpunk sandbox. Wandering around the different districts, possessing new people and checking out their apartments. Then entering fighting tournaments and spending your winnings on David Bowie songs. It's like playing a French sci-fi comic.

I remember getting so hype from this trailer (even though most of it never happens in game)

The 1997 Blade Runner adventure game had a pretty comfy vibe at times, particularly McCoy's apartment.

Pre-rendered, not real time 3D. Westwood studios did a lot of CGI cutscenes back in the day. Especially for the Command & Conquer games and such.
