I've been playing Tales of Phantasia on my SNES recently, and that game has blown me away. The intro song has a full set of lyrics, tons of other voice samples like the chick yelling her mana spells like in newer games (Faasto Aiido!) the graphics are amazingly detailed (shadow effects, loads of animation on all sorts of objects, lightning through windows in buildings), and an amazing soundtrack. Been very impressed. Nights on the Saturn always impressed me. One thing that jumped out is when I unlocked Reala in the Christmas version. The character model has individual fingers! That's amazing with all the other stuff going on while in game, and still smooth framerate. Metal Storm on the NES looks pretty damn snazzy. Very smooth animation (dying in a game has never looked cooler), multiple layers of background scrolling, large bosses with big explosions.
