We all like to think that we’re not shallow and that we do appreciate solid gameplay over looks but… yeah, it’s about the looks, too. When a game rubs you the wrong way visually, it’s much harder to get past that to immerse yourself into the virtual world.
I’m not talking about creaky old graphics, although that could be a factor. Rather, today I want to discuss MMOs that have a certain art style that doesn’t do it for you. I can think of a few games that push me away in that department, such as Warframe’s alien-looking tech and much of FFXIV’s character design.
What art style is a big drawback when you’re looking at a particular title?
