Comments on More arguments against realistic graphics



I’ve been preaching this for a /very/ long time. I’m listening!

Well, really we just need to remember to make the gameplay more realistic along with the graphics. So obviously the ultimate game will be a painstakingly-detailed incredibly-realistic simulation of going to the laundromat.

I am no fan of realistic graphics – I never were, actually. “Realistic” graphics age badly, mostly because at some point tech moves on, and when you look back at some games you get that “eeew” moment. Unless the graphics doesn’t matter (either gameplay or story is superior), or the graphics itself has a certain artistic direction which overcomes other areas where it falls short.

I still am a fan of the original World of Warcraft gfx (I know, shoot me 😊) from back in 2005. When you compare that to Everquest 2, the latter one feels like a loser in this area.
