Well concept art is just art. But the trailers? o.o
I don't have to specify which of these are old and which are new, because it's obvious, but I'll do it anyway.
You can do it anyway, but what you like isn't exactly what I'm likely to like either. I could try using different examples, but that would take the thread off-track.
You've also taken different shots from different videos that show off different areas, save for 1-3 shots.
Someone saying it looks ugly is just their opinion though at the end of the day, me not liking the current style all that much is my own say as well, but saying "objectively" is hard, considering that the artwork itself is, well, subjective, unless you want to tell me that the Mona Lisa> virtually every piece of artwork known to man, and then you'll have the biggest argument of the century on your hands.
