What are some good examples of low-poly aesthetic in early 3d games?
Something like gif related.

The more lo-fi the better.

I once found a case and artwork only for Jurassic Park operation genesis on xbox, and I actually spent like an hour at the store looking through every single dvd and game case. There was even a few Jurassic park 3 dvd cases thinking it would be in there, but no. I didn't find it. They still let me have the case for free though so I guess I got something out of it.

Yeah you should have at least got the case, they might have let you have it for free like what happened to me >>5518831 even if its just the case and manual you could still get some good money for it.

What is the best low poly aesthetic?
Blocky, untextured (Virtua Fighter)
Blocky, with some texturing (Tobal)?
No shading (Megaman Legends)?
"Soft", with heavy use of vertex coloring (Threads of Fate)?
"Modern", fully textured (Chrono Cross)?
Other?

The developers hadn't a style set in stone. It wasn't well defined how good graphics should look, so we had a ton of different styles regardless of the console.
