    It has to be the 360.

    The Neo and DC have a fantastic selection but games like Akai Katana, Death Smiles, Caladrius,
    Muchi Muchi Pork & Pink Sweets, give the 360 the edge, for me.

    But the PS1 has Kyukyoku Tiger & Raiden. There's the only TATE version of Galaga, too. I love those classics.

    Interesting and uncommon choice! For me it's Gaia Seed. Together with Harmful Park and, what I'd consider 2.5D's finest hour, namely R-Type Delta & Einhänder, these games rival Saturn's library in terms of originality, obscurity and variety.

    Excellent description. Some games age so well and it's mostly due to their craft/abstraction ratio. Delta has gorgeous 60fps, which make the blocky graphics look artistic, like a cubism painting. Its frame rate dictated a certain graphical reduction, resulting in a timeless minimalism, leading to an abstraction level that will be thought provoking for a long time. The often childish seeming scale of certain objects like buildings, cars or street signs in this game beats the zeitgeist hyperrealism of current generation products by light years.
