Up for your consideration to either love and/or loath: Omega Boost, an old shoot-em-up PSX game. Or more concisely, the opening scene. In a lot of ways, it is akin to many shorts being put out these days, which made me remember this gem that had a little bit of everything; time travel, mecha, outrageous Lightyear-like flight suits, a cheezy 90's hard rock backing track, space battles, anti-AI hysteria, and even the stereotypical Jamaican garage bay mechanic yard jockey!
