Increasingly uncanny

Taka Nuvia

177 views

I have sort of a problem with modern video games, especially those from the last... idk, 2 years. The graphics. In many cases, the modelling, texturing etc on human characters have improved to a point where on a still image, it would be hard to tell them from reality. But the movement is usually still not that realistic. (still, it's not as bad as the 'Polar Express' was back when.)

 

Admittedly, I haven't played any games newer than from 2011, but I watched some playthroughs, and looked at preview videos... and find them to be, as the title says: increasingly uncanny.

 

But maybe I am just too sensitive. Either way, I'm curious to hear what others think about it. :)

It will be a hard climb, but we will someday make it out of that uncanny valley.

 

And then photo evidence will no longer be admissible in court...

I think that the extremely realistic graphics really help immersion and overall benefit the game.

 

Unfortunately, most games that utilize them are garbage and I have no desire to immerse myself in them, so. =P

expressionistic and otherwise unique/unusual art styles in video games (along with sprite-based stuff) appeal to me more because of this
i like it when my people look like people, and when people look too much like people they kinda stop looking like people

which is just creepy as heck

Play zelda

Which one

 

A link between worlds is great. Play that or one of the 3ds re-releases (assuming you have a 3ds, in which case, add me: 4871-6505-8990)

I has, but I no has wi-fi :C

 

And yes, Between Worlds is fantastic. I've spent tons of time trying out the many glitches in it as well.
