Question: Are the intro&ending videos from the 3DO better than the slides from the PC original or the other way around?
The 3DO videos are better
The PC original slides are better
Both have ups and downs, but are overall the same

Poll: Intro&ending videos from the 3DO, slides from the PC original

So what do you think? Of course the 3DO videos look prettier etc., but the slides are more in SC2 style, don't you think? The same hand-drawn kind of graphics, way better than the "photorealistic" thingies.
Also, slides give one an unmatched feeling of immersion, and the text and the silence make you feel the very void and mystery of space.

I prefer the way the slides tell the story in the intro (and it does fit the rest of the game better), but the videos are still cool. However, the ending video looks a bit silly when you knock out everything on the Sa-Matra, dock your flagship without any resistance, and then, suddenly, in the video, you're under heavy fire. Also, the ending video degenerates into a (flickery) slideshow for part of its duration.

I'd go with the slideshow, in no small part bacause you don't get the commentary from the various races during the credits with the videos.

Don't take that into account, I'm referring to the slideshow/videos themselves,
