The Hot Topic Returns

- basically every FF cover, at least as long as it's the classic title & artwork on a white background. I'd probably go with X as my favourite

- Metal Gear Solid 3, the steelbook in particular makes it look excellent

- Ikaruga (the japanese DC version) because Yasushi Suzuki's artwork is phenomenal

- REZ was also kind of memorable. I don't particularly like the artwork but it made the game stand out quite a bit and made me check it out, so job well done

- finally, for all the wrong reasons, FIFA21

I pay less attention to box art now as I'm mostly purchasing digital copies nowadays... something I thought I'd never say. 

 

A few that spring to mind though...

in terms of memorable, the guy that did the western Street Fighter 2 box art died last week, that's pretty memorable, definite nostalgia when I saw it

if we're going favourites, I've always loved the Wasteland boxart, even though I've never actually played the game

That Wasteland one is great. 
 

Just thought of 2 recent ones I love. Bit cheating though as they’re the reversible ones. Trust companies to make the reverse side a lot better.

But as cool you occasionally get character portraits as cover art I do love an action shot but maybe because you don't get them much anymore.  A favourite is this one

I looked through my small physical collection that I currently have and only this one met a similar criteria

More of this please.

 

 

I guess it's kinda sad that we don't have as much of this to have in our homes but stuff like this does get made for digital games as promotional material, it's just harder to get your hands on.

Quote

Readers discuss the most iconic video game sound effects and jingles, from Sonic the Hedgehog’s rings to the Metal Gear Solid ping.

 

The subject for this week’s Hot Topic was suggested by reader D Dubya, and includes regular sound effects, short jingles, and even the noise of the consoles themselves. Readers were also encouraged to share a clip on YouTube, to help remind everyone of the sounds in question.

 

As many predicted, various Nintendo games got a lot of mentions, as did retro games in general. There were some newer titles as well though, and console noises such as rare achievements.

 

Haven't played a Sonic game in years and this still sticks with me...

 

Iconic...

 

It's all the ones already mentioned...😂
