Borderlands series because Claptrap doing random shit in the back and time of day in a main menu was and is quite nice.


Posted a BL3 because the song is really great and heres another Jesper Kyd themed main menu, a classic, one of the best.

For me AC Revelations...
The slower theme coming off the back of Brotherhood was a great contrast for many reasons.

It had a sadness to it, it was the last game with Ezio and Altair and wrapped up a nice 4 game arc.

IOI may have got a lot wrong with Kane & Lynch 2, but they made the best damn animated wallpapers for the menus

There hasn't been a game since Black that made shooting a gun feel so satisfying in both visuals and sound.
Destiny (2)!! I will have to look up Black though but I feel like Destiny has pretty good feeling and sounding guns.

Oh yeah that was awesome! I got the game by the end of the PS3 era but never really played it past the prologue but i do remember that main menu!

Like everybody said, the RTS stuff sucked. If they had just stuck to a third person action RPG or whatever, it would have been fine... Double fine.

In regards to ops question, I'd say Kingdom Hearts.

Devil Mar Cry Series is the first thing that comes to mind.
Others include:
Phantom Dust
Splinter Cell Series (They are all good)
Fallout 4
Final Fantasy 14

I think Destiny's UI has been pretty good in terms of visual style anyway (but it is pretty easy to use as well.) I also like the Uncharted menus for 1, 2. I can't remember how the third one was but I remember thinking that whoever was doing their UI was no longer with them because it didn't feel like it was from the same person. The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 menu weren't bad but it wasn't as stylish as UC1/2.

EDIT
Someone else already posted this but it reminded me of it; Halo Reach menu was pretty good too.

OG Resident Evil 96

NEW GAME
LOAD GAME


That's all you get! lol. Game means business. There actually an options menu while you're actually in the game, I think you gotta hit select and then start. Has some weird control options within.
