In my teens, I had a real thing against stylized and cel-shaded graphics, despite being a big Nintendo fan. Because of this, I didn't play though Wind Waker, Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door and others. I've since bought them, though.
These days, ironically, I think I prefer stylized graphics, and seeing the unique graphic style has been a big factor in a number of my recent game purchases, including Okami, Tales of Vesperia, Punch-Out!! and, of course, Valkyria Chronicles.
