Keeping with Sony's platforms for now, so moving on to the PS2! I'm going to upload these in reverse order this time, so starting in the Zs. I'll have a little over hundred videos uploaded once this is finished.
For Final Fantasy themes, I already of most of the games for this platform available from the link below, but I still need to make one for Final Fantasy X and X International. I'm already using a theme made by someone else for X, but I will make a new one to finish out the PS2 themes for this series. I will upload those to that particular thread once they are done, instead of to this one, so check there if you are looking for them.
I've also already got a theme for Rez I made some time ago:

Going to go ahead and start a thread for PC games. I have well over two hundred games, so I'll just be uploading new ones as I feel like doing them. I've already done a number, so I have links below for those. Newer themes will go into the playlist further below (starting with Dead Space) and will be downloadable from this page.
Update: 06/11/2020 - This thread was getting obnoxious so I removed all the other links I had here as I intend to re-visit a number of those older videos at some point since I was still pretty new to AE when I originally made those. I will probably clear out a number of these as well that are not the latest versions I've made. Someone had also asked me a while back if I could bundle these into one big upload, so I will do that once I clean up previous versions and the channel. I will still upload individually too, but after I get 50 or so new ones made I will add them to the overall "bundle" download.
Update 2: 06/11/2020 - So a bundled upload just isn't possible since I can't attach ZIP, RARs, 7z, etc.... so nevermind that idea. Sorry for those hoping for a bulk download from here.
Full list of videos below:
I decided to do a little updating on my setup and there isn't much I could find for cartridge art for the MVS, so I made some of my own. The only one I did not make is the Aero Fighters 2 one (got it from the LB scraper), but used it as the template for the others. These are all quick and dirty and not the best they could be, but they get the job done. Hopefully this helps others flesh out their art collections. I don't have a huge collection of MVS titles, but the download includes 2D cart fronts for the following:
Aero Fighters 2 (since I already had it)
Aero Fighters 3
Garou: Mark of the Wolves
The King of Fighters 2003
Metal Slug 4
Metal Slug 5
Prehistoric Isle 2
Real Bout: Fatal Fury Special
Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad
This is where I will upload themes for the Metroid Primes series of games for the Nintendo Gamecube and Wii.
1. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
2. Metroid Prime
3, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
4. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes version 2
5. Metroid Prime version 2
6. Metroid Prime Trilogy
So this is probably overkill and the filesize is much larger than your typical game theme video (191MB). It’s also a bit longer (3:40) and might clash with your current video themes.
But atypical is what I was going for with this one.
Super Metroid has been my favorite video game ever since it first released way back in 1994. I wanted to pay tribute to it and the community that has developed around it over the years, so almost all of the art in the video are works crafted by fans of this game and franchise. The medley was done by a YouTuber who goes by the name FamilyJules. I didn't want to make a video that went on for over 7 minutes, but the full medley is just below:
Hopefully some of you will enjoy it.
I decided to start a 'unified' set of themes for ScummVM. However, my collection only consists of 17 games, so the "complete" collection from me is going to be far from it. That said, I have also attached my After Effects project file in this post. It contains all of the assets used to complete this first video and the project file should be plug and play for any other AE users out there that might want to add to whatever I don't get up here myself. I will try and add other things too, but I have lots of other projects I'm working on, as well, so we will have to see on that. Anyway I hope people enjoy these for their own setups.
The AE project contains everything to easily add new game footage, clear logos, background wallpaper for behind the game footage and music (or mute and use the game's audio) without needing to make too many adjustments aside from some minor tweaks here and there. There are many pre-comps in the project primarily to try and keep things tidy and easy to dig through. Should be pretty quick to crank additional videos out with this... I hope.
I should be able to get all of these up before the weekend, but the full set of what I have from my collection will be:
1. The 7th Guest
2. Beneath A Steel Sky
3. Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars
4. Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror
5. The Dig
6. Full Throttle
7. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
8. Maniac Mansion
9. Day of the Tentacle
10. The Secret of Monkey Island
11. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
12. The Curse of Monkey Island
13. Return to Zork
14. Sam & Max Hit the Road
15. Simon the Sorcerer
16. Simon the Sorcerer II: The Lion, the Wizard and the Wardrobe
17. Zack McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
I was pretty unhappy with how the first one turned out. Made it in a rush just to have something in my setup since it has been blank for a long time. This is a second attempt and I think I prefer this one much better. All of the themes featured were made by me except for the TMNT one (made by @RetroHumanoid) and are downloadable here in the forums.
I did a couple of versions of videos for the SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Collection release on PC via Steam and thought it might also make a good Playlist video for anyone that wanted/has a SEGA Classics Playlist, so uploading a version for that purpose, as well (clear logo above).
Link to the PC Game Themes too for anyone interested in those:
Platform theme for Origin
Platform theme video for Battle.net
Platform Theme for GOG.com
A Metal Slug playlist theme to compliment the playlists that @jchasa is putting together. The current XMLs are available here:
I also mocked up a couple of clear logos and those are availalbe here (just right-click the image and Save As):
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your Metal Slug Playlist folder.
Collection theme for the DOOM Series by request of @Robin55
Hope you all enjoy!
Moving on to the PlayStation. I'll be uploading themes for games in my collection (around 80ish). If you are looking for themes for any of the PlayStation Final Fantasy games, I have themes for all of those available here:
Just an FYI: I won't be uploading themes for Crash Bandicoot or most of the Mega Man games since @hevenik uploaded video themes for most all of these already. I have, however, modified the videos I'm using from his collections to be 16:9 (added a wallpaper with a blur to fill up the black space on the sides) and incorporated music from the game instead of sound effects of the game since this is what I prefer. If there is any interest in those, I will upload them here; just let me know. Otherwise, Hevenik has you covered for practically all Mega Man and Crash games. I will be doing a theme for Mega Man 8: Anniversary Collector's Edition since that is about the only thing not covered in his set.

This wraps up themes for PlayStation, aside from any special requests that may come along. I'll either be doing PlayStation 2 next or filling in the holes I have for Super Nintendo; haven't decided. When I do get to Super Nintendo, those themes will be at 1440x1080 so they have a 4:3 aspect ratio since the majority of the themes I already have for that system are 4:3 (will make versions of the Final Fantasy SNES themes to match this too sine the ones I made before are 16:9).
Theme for the Devil May Cry series:
