Not only did he say PS2, but when referencing the PS3/360 generation he specifically went out of his way to say "indie". Which, anyone who played games that generation knows that indie games (with the definition we use for indie today) looked nothing like this back then.

Both of those facts together shows that the OP was being purposefully hyperbolic. I'm not sure the reason for this (to bring more responses, to be more negative towards the game, bias, etc).  But it's glaringly obvious and I really think that everyone should stop feeding that part of the discussion at this point.

To everyone: OP knows what he did, he was called out dozens of comments ago. At this point I think we should all just shift to the real conversation which is does playing TotK on Switch feel dated? 

The amount of whining about the way that I expressed my opinion in the OP is far more ridiculous than anything I said there.  It appears to me that many commenters have (some likely deliberately) misunderstood it, so as to not have to take my criticisms seriously.  I clearly said "reminds me of" not "this game could be on PS2", and I was very clearly only talking about a few elements.  

I have not engaged in most of that side of the discussion because it's not necessary for me to back up my opinions of what something reminds me of. It is literally impossible for me to be wrong about what I think about something.  I'm not sure how to provide evidence for what I'm reminded of when playing a game. 

Further, this idea that I'm way out in left field is ridiculous, as evidenced by the fact that at least a third of the people commenting in this thread are largely in agreement with me, and a good deal more are partially there.  

Some people feel differently. That's fine. This has been a mostly good discussion (which was my goal), aside from some people crying because I dared say anything even remotely critical of their beloved video game.  I even said, multiple times now, that I like the game.  I opened the OP with that, as a matter of fact.  But, some people, especially on the internet in forums like this, are incapable of engaging in mature discussion.  It is what it is.  

You have gone out of your way to rile people up, so you trying to take some high ground is laughable. It is you that are incapable of engaging in mature discussion. You say things in the op and then act  shocked that people engage and ask why about those things.

It's also very possible to be wrong about how you feel about something, if I said I feel that textures in red dead 2 remind me of an n64 game that would be wrong. You could very easily bring up evidence for what you are reminded of, you obviously have something in mind when you say it reminds you of something, bring up some images from ps2 games that have similar foliage to this game. Give examples of 15 year old indie games that look like this.

"people crying because I dared say anything even remotely critical of their beloved video game" this is completely unnecessary no one is crying, no one here is get angry because you dared to say anything critical about the game.
