Title screens are the first glimpses of the journey ahead, and make up some of our earliest memories with the medium.
For many, these sometimes minimalistic screens (FFVII jumps to mind) hold big nostalgic value as they play with our expectations of the world we shall step foot in.
This thread is for sharing your picks - and while there are many beloved examples like the Sonic or Ocarina of Time title screens, I would love to hear some obscure mentions and personal stories, be it from SEGA, Nintendo or other.
My favourite title screen is the one from Gungriffon Blaze on the Ps2
The tragedy of war captured in a somber moment of rain drops on a burnt out mech with an emotional piano, and a haunting monk-chanting synth. Gets me everytime and stands in complete contrast to the frantic action under bright sunlight the game’s levels offer.
A stroke of genius…
Now I’d love to hear about your favourites, feel free to share !
