No, f*** graphic whores. Realistic games look like trash years later.

Besides, if I wanted to look at things that looked identical to real life..I'd...ya know...just look out a window.

There's just Gamefaqs and some folders in my windows...

At least 12 porn folders, yes?

I'm not divulging the content of my folders XD

That's a yes!

Have fun imagining what's inside those folders then.
The reality is that you would probably be disappointed.

Bolson's company documents are in those folders

Superson is embarrased of his summer internship. What did you do to him, Rustyson?

^^Yeah a one man project makes Nintendo's current Zelda look like a dumpster fire.

No, I’m pretty sure that project is what looks like a dumpster fire.

It's funny how so many think that a much more realistic looking game (ie: something like above using the Unreal engine, even though it's not at all photo-realistic) is cooler and better than a true cell-shaded cartoon looking game ... while on the other hand, there are just as many people who feel that a Zelda game should never look "real" at all.

Go figure.

The thing is that there is a case for cel-shaded graphics holding up incredibly well over time. People point to WW and it still looks quite incredibly today. I personally liked SS's graphical style, and I think that BotW will hold up in the same regard.

I agree ... and I said it before in this thread, I think. I don't think photo-real is good for video games because of how incredibly difficult it is to get it right, even for high-end movies who have the ability and budget to try to pull it off. And for that, it never looks as good as it should, not with people and human forms and faces. Environments, yes. People, no.

But, the above example where the Unreal engine is used, and it's just a VERY detailed but still non-photo-realistic style ... that's totally cool with me. It may not hold up quite as well as a true "cartoon" look ... but if it can really give a better feel for the environments you're in, be it inside a dungeon or something similar, or a cave/cavern ... or the woods, swamp, mountains, etc... I think that could add a lot of character and feel to the game.

Regarding the whole people point, just look at Will Smith as Genie in the new Aladdin. It looks very... odd.

Meanwhile I think Thanos looked amazing though.
