Welcome to the fifteenth edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! Robotnik's submission of an errant spent cartridge in took the first spot with 11 upvotes!

Last week's winning screenshot

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question. After a few clarifications on previous competitions, we've compiled this handy list of requirements, so please take note of the following:

  • One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please!
  • Limited picture modifications are allowed, such as cropping, simple filters, and blurring of identifying info such as names, but not adding other images or text.
  • To ensure a fair playing field, please post screenshots you've taken yourself rather than ones you found online.
  • Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here.

Also, try to avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

How long will the contest run?

We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2020-06-22, then have a second week-long period where only voting will be accepted. This is to give every submission, even those posted at the end of the first week, a chance to be voted on by everyone.

After the end of the second week, at 19:00 UTC of 2020-06-29, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured as the winner in the next Screenshot post.


Theme

The theme for this contest is "'90s". Show us your best screenshots of games released between 1990 and 1999, no remasters!

As a reminder, we're always accepting suggestions for themed weeks, and have compiled that suggestion process into a question of its own.

    It'd be remiss of me to not post a Sonic game, wouldn't it? – Robotnik Jun 16 at 1:49
  • My backups don't go back far enough for that :( – dly Jun 16 at 22:09
  • This one was hard, I think the only games I can screenshot that qualify are Sonic games – Unionhawk Jun 18 at 3:31

    I ended up getting my screenshot from the games available in the Sega Mega Drive & Genesis Classics pack on Steam, for anyone looking for inspiration – Robotnik Jun 18 at 14:36

From named the best simulation game ever in 1992. Originally released in 1991, re-released in 1993 and again in 1996 for windows 95. I had a ton of fun playing this back in the day, and after I tired of playing as an ant, I also liked playing as a spider and eating as many ants as I could.

    @Robotnik i refuse to listen to a guy who calls himself Dr Eggman – Memor-X Jun 16 at 2:28
  • it would be hard to compete with the greatest scientific genius in the world in this contest :( – arghtype Jun 18 at 22:11
  • @Memor-X To be fair, Robotnik wanted a different nickname – Wipqozn Jun 23 at 2:05
  • Which is way different from his take in Sonic Adventure 2 (sadly released 2001 otherwise that'd be the one to pick). Then again, this boss form is called Egg Hornet and his ship is the Egg Carrier so I guess he's embraced it in this game too. – Unionhawk Jun 23 at 7:38

Scorpius, the boss of nightmares.

From for the , released in 1993. I played this and other Sonic games at 6 years old, and this boss gave me nightmares. To get the full experience, listen to the sounds it makes! Holy Moly!

Legend of Dragon Boss Battle

from which, while released in the US on June 13, 2000, was release in Japan on December 2, 1999

this boss is featured in a PS1 Demo Disk (i believe it was Demo One) which i replayed over and over until i got the full game years later. the main difference between the Demo and Full versions of the game with this boss is that in the Demo you had Shana's, Dart's and Lavitz's Dragoons which made this phase of the boss alot easier as Dragoons can fly so their physical attacks can hit
