Fully Utilizing Graphics And Gameplay

   0
I was playing some games and my backlog, and I noticed a trend:  misuse of graphics make me angrier than they should.  I understand that the creators of the game are entitled to their artistic choices, but in many cases, these choices are flat out wrong.  Just as you wouldn’t try to create the Mona Lisa using crayons, some games just do not benefit from using a certain style over another.  I think most of what annoys me about it is that there are so many games trying to be something that they are not, or it feels like they aren’t offering anything new or interesting so they try to ride the coattails of something good and popular to be accomplished.  I wanted to rationalize these thoughts the best way I know how: to a group of total strangers on the internet!  To kick things off...

So I suppose this is where I turn it over to you, the reader:  what do you think?  Is it cute or endearing when a modern dev tries to use retro graphics with modern gameplay?  Are there any games where the graphic style either really got underneath your skin or enhanced the game into something special?

I also covered the progress of building my own gaming PC. I had no experience, and overall, it wasn't all bad! If you are on the fence about it, I suggest you read about my efforts

The series never had a part 3, because I was having waaaaay too much fun playing it. Suffice to say that it does alright these days.

Thanks for stopping by my blawg!
