Eh, in tge post-graphics era of Minecraft, Miis and mobile, how are we supposed to judge this? Lumo, Tiny Barbarian DX and even Octopath Traveler all look very old on my Switch, but none of them are supposed to look like Call of Duty.
If I had to, I would take Lumo to task out of the three above, but how much can I criticize a game made by like three guys? If I were to restrict it to AAA games, I would have to select Octopath, but how do I really compare that to Fortnite or Skyrim?

Are you serious? I think Octopath Traveler looks great, much better than Skyrim and Fortnite.

I like Octopath's look too, but my point is, they are apples and oranges.  16 bit style applied to a 3D diorama vs 3D realistic or semi realistic games, how do we compare? If you put all three of those games up in a mall and asked randos which looks best, I am pretty sure the loser

 

is Octopath, but then again, maybe the retro look would get some votes.But again, my point is, in a world of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Splatoon, Final Fantasy XV, Octopath, Red Dead Redemption, Warioware, Breath of the Wild, Shovel Night, Destiny, Angry Birds, and No More Heroes, how do we decide ugliness?

Just like how we determine ugliness on anything else in life: through subjective opinion. That's what this thread is about, I think. Just because Octopath Traveler has a stylized look doesn't make it ugly. Although anyone is allowed to think it's ugly, of course.

Yep, that's right. What qualifies as ugly is up to the individual. For example, another one of mine that I just remembered:



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

@chrizum/curl-6 Ah, well in this case, folks, carry on! It turns out it is I who am the relic of a bygone era, where we could judge graphics quite relatively and conclude that "it looks like an N64 game". Carry on!

Are you referring to judging graphics purely on objective technological merits? Cos you can still answer based on that if you want.
