A lot of them look old and outdated. Petronas and Shun Hing look like they couldve been built in the 80s. The Yokohama tower almost looks like something out of 1977. The Bank of China building and the German ones look good though. The Chicago ones arent bad either.

I like only the Bank of America towers, Key Tower and Cheug Kong.
The rest are badly postmodernist and tacky. 90s was the worst architecture period...

It was awesome in development, awesome in music, totally awesome in movies but really bad in cars and totally dreadful in architecture.

These buildings are the symbol of extreme engineering and amazing to watch them. They look beautiful to have them. These buildings are multi billion projects.

It's such a pity that Cheung Kong Center destroys the beauty of Bank of China Tower, the most spowerful and harmonious skyscraper in Hongkong and maybe the best skyscraper of the 90's.

No.2 is Jin Mao tower for me, especially the atrium is pure awesomness.

Bank of china tower, Jin mao, 2 prudential plaza, bank of america atlanta, the center and the german buildings are nice. The rest look very, aged or hideous. Even the petronas have aged very badly.

Burj, Bank of China and BOAC Charlotte seem like the only really good ones for me. Some others are nice but I never really liked any of them that much.

Gonna have to agree with ThatOneGuy. 60's-80's may have been boring, but it didnt have the tacky and hideous architecture of the 90's.
