That went for the obvious stuff, like the ship design and team logos, but it extended right through to the game’s logo. For a very particular breakdown of why it was all so good, check out this thread by Y2K Aesthetic’s Froyo Tam:

In my opinion, this was the best futuristic aesthetics (logos inclusive) I’ve seen in any game ever made. Not even Destiny comes close for me.

Whoever was responsible for making the animated screensavers that used to be on the Wipeout website way back when gets a pat on the back from me.

Hard to find what I’m talking about these days, but below is a shrunken down version of the Goteki 45 screensaver- there was one for every company and all of them were amazing.
