Locked: I don't get it how adults can like games with kiddy cartoony look

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I don't get it how adults can like games with kiddy cartoony look

Because the games are fun and for some of us, the graphics remind us of the games from our youth. I also find that a lot of these so-called kiddy looking games actually have more of an original art style as opposed to something like all the popular FPS games and third person action games which seem to use all the same colors, the same looking environments and the same protagonists. Mario, Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet & Clank, and Banjo all have a distinctive look. You can tell those games apart from one another. You can tell those characters from one another. If you were to remove the titles from the games, could you really distinguish most Call of Duty games and most Battlefield games?

I've noticed that with movies too. I'll often go see a Pixar movie by myself and notice that it actually looks different than other movies and not just because it's an animated movie. It doesn't use that disgusting teal and orange effect that most live action movies use these days. Has anyone else ever noticed that. Most action movies these days look like a Micheal Bay film, even the good ones.

Question for OP, how old are you!?
Beacuse that mentality Nintendo games are for kids are typical for teens who only play "hardcore" games.

To be fair, Nintendo games do lack certain "adult" features like competitive multiplayer, headset functionality, party chat, rich novel-like narratives and character development.

This is the eternal Nintendo debate, everyone has different preferences.

not feeling enticed by Nintendos offerings is one thing, denying that "adults" can like/love them is an entirely different one

the former means knowing what you want for yourself, the later means being unaccepting of other peoples differing tastes and to look down on them



It's actually very childish to state what you have.

 

It's Art. If it's not your taste then thats your taste. Just how I think shooting games are all the same and one is enough. It's not a fact. It's an opinion. Calling out people on my opinion would just be annoying. I also don't like Cartoony civilization games compared to the realistic looking ones, but again, just my opinion.

I personally "grew out" of Nintendo games. The cartoony kid friendly graphics weren't really the reason. I like games with atmosphere, a darker tone, a good story and great character development and lets be honest, Nintendo games aren't exactly well known for that.

I mean, I still play on my 3DS for nostalgias sake for games like Smash Bros, but otherwise, the point is gamers move on from Nintendo for more then their graphics.

That said, there is something to be said about certain adults yearning for the simpler days of youth and play Nintendo games to cling to that mindset. But in the end, Nintendo won't loose too much business........humans breed too damn much and the next generation of kids will be Nintendos next customers in no time ;)

So you're an Ori > Mario kind of guy. I can respect that.



Well, this is new.

What about Splatoon? I personally don't have it but isn't that competitive?

Without headset functionality and the entire multiplayer structure lacking compared to XB1/PS4 titles, Nintendo has a long way to go to make a competitive shooter that the rest of the industry is used to.

but if you're and adult and like Kirby then I honestly think something is wrong with you

 

Well, guess we're never being friends!

I wonder what you did during the my little pony phase the internet went through. I'll admit I used to think similarly of bronies but I quickly grew out of that thankfully. Hopefully you will too someday!



Well that's your problem. Not much more I can say on the subject...

Good story, thanks for sharing.

Why did you put it back though?



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
