Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games with the worst art direction

Opoona's character designs disgust me.

I've tried so many times to enjoy the game in spite of them, but I only seem to get a little bit further on each attempt.



WHERE IS MY KORORINPA 3

new super mario bros. Generic as generic can be. Doesn't have the flair of the old 2D ones.

With NSMB U its hit or miss for me.  This level is pretty awesome tho.

yeah it's not all bad. It's the one annoys me the most though, because I love the artstyles in Paper Mario, and 2D ones, or maybe it's nostalgia goggles and I liked what I thought it was going for. I feel that with the 3D models in 2D plane the took the old artyle too literally, and it's not near as vibrant as like rayman origins or as stylized as LBP (I think NSMB is a better game than LBP however).

But it's things like this. Obviously there's tons of generic shooters... that re worse but games aren't memorable so it doesn't come to mind. But, I don't like the pastel 3D models in 2D plane I think it looks really bleh to me atleast.

 

Things like Rainbow 6 or tom clancy games comes to mind, A lot of them have good gameplay and decent tech and end up being quite bland looking, but it goes for ultra realistic generic military crap. So it achieves what its aiming for. 


I wouldn't say nsmb has terrible art style but i'd much prefer if it was full 2d. sprites for everything, 3d models with 2d backgrounds doesn't look great.

Definitely this. Not only are the character designs rather ugly, but they simply don't translate well into 3D at all. At least not the way Capcom did it...

Another fighting game related choice: KOFXIII. I LOVE the smoothness and quality of the animation, but I fucking hate the goofy art style used for the characters. Especially the younger female characters like Athena and Yuri, who look like overdeveloped 12 year olds. And because of how time intensive the process of overhauling the graphics was, we're most likely going to be stuck with the KOFXII sprites for a while. Bleh.

I also feel that Injustice's designs simply don't work with the gray, realistic approach they took with the in-game visuals. Had they gone more stylized and cel-shaded, it would look way better--it worked wonders for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.



Have some time to kill? Read my shitty games blog. http://www.pixlbit.com/blogs/586/gigantor21

:D

what this thread is going to be is people taking popular games that they dont like and saying they have a horrible art direction. As seen with the first few comments. This is very opinionated.

Do you always have to play hero in every thread you participate in? And opinionated? of course it is! Do you expect everybody to have viewpoints on what and what is not appealing to them? On topic - Nearly every single game that would fall AAA has some of the worst and just boring art ive ever witnessed in a videogame.

For me it's the ugly 3D style of my favorite childhood adventures. I can't get in to them because of that.

Just saying how it is.  When majority of people think bad art they are definitely not thinking BF3 and Super Mario Bros lol  But if you have a problem with me send me a pm.

Are you aware of how annoying you are???? Oh, and thanks for pointing out the obvious.

IMO Street fighter is a great game with bad art direction...

I hate all cel-shaded & anime styled game. Also I just don't like the art style of the Darksiders franchise. Not a fan of Nintendo games art either, only Zelda: Twilight Princess looks nice too me.

I love Twilight Princess but I like the cel-shaded and anime art styles, too
