Unrealistic Graphics in Games by ditto9 Unrealistic Graphics in Games by ditto9
Edit: I would LOVE to add more games to this stamp. However, I've lost the PSD or overwritten it somehow so I'd have to make an entire new stamp, and to be honest I dont feel I need to right now.
But! Leave the games you'd like to see added in the comments and when I do remake it, I'll have a look at including it!

I HATE HATE HATE it when people write off a game because it's not realistic enough.
Most of you know this already to be my most HATED thing of all time. Other than cheese.
People dont like Wind Waker, Mario, Okami, Pokemon etc because the graphics dont show up every hair folicle on the goddam face.
There's a time and place and genre for realistic games.
I dont hate realism, my goodness, I love Resident Evil for gods sake.
But because people bitch too much about unrealistic graphics, here's my opinion about it.

My biggest irk is Wind Waker. It is probably one of the TOP Zelda games, and yet people look down on it because of it being cel shaded. It is a stunning game.

Thank god for games such as the upcoming Tales of Vesperia and the recently released Madworld.
And where would we be without Pokemon? It's a revolutionary RPG beneath the childish demeanor, changing the ye olde Black Magick/White Magicke fantasy RPG entirely.

Dont anyone start bitching onto me about how lame I am for not liking realism in games.
I do like realism in games, but I hate it when people cant open their eyes to other types of graphics.

That is all!

The games, in animated order are...

Wind Waker, Blue Dragon, Mario (SSBB), Phoenix Wright, Okami, Super Paper Mario, Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen, Star Ocean Till the End of Time, Madworld and finally, Tales of Vesperia.

I don't care if it's realistic, one of my standards for a good game is a creative or fun style. For example, I was loaned a copy of Okami, and right of the bat just by looking at the box art, I fell for the game because of the style alone, and as I played I loved the story behind it, and I thought it was clever with utilization of the brush powers. ^^

I'm annoyed when game reviews complains about there not being realistic graphics in a anime like game. Plus a year ago I red a review of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and the stupid reviewer showed a picture with the words "terrible graphics" below a picture with nothing wrong with the graphics plus I love the graphic in that game. Also cheers for Tales of Vesperia being on the stamp.

You have no idea how much I agree with this stamp. I REALLY hate the games with the realistic graphics, and love the ones with unrealistic graphics. :D

I Love all Video Games are fun
Oceanlinerorca Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I completely agree with this.

All my friends look down on Okami because it's graphics are 'cartoon-ish'.
Sucks for them because they will never get to experience the amazing game that is Okami.

I love super paper mario even though it has non real graphics.
KCtheStarKid Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Brawl is pretty realistic, imo. ._.
ditto9 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I disagree, due to the fact that none of the characters are vaguely like anything in real life. It has realistic textures, but it doesn't make it a realism game B) 
This isn't really about Brawl though, I just used a render of Mario from it
KCtheStarKid Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah. :P Whatever though. I do agree with this stamp, however.

Oh, i remember how i was MAD, when i've seen that Final Fantasy VIII is too realistic, because i loved anime style in VII ^__^

But i agree, i prefer cartoony and animeish games ^__^

Aleronssword Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013
Tis a bit of a thing with me.

Graphics over gameplay with most likely suck/fail hard for me.

Gameplay over graphics (ie Darwinia) will be good if the first part's enjoyable enough.

like sonic
hes to kick-ass for this
ditto9 Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
...what? Lol I have no idea what you're trying to get across. I put Phoenix Wright in there because the graphics are quirky. I didn't put Sonic in because I don't like the games at all and it never crossed my mind to do so. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about games I don't enjoy.
professorlayton22 Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
were u making fun of these charters
ditto9 Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
No? The stamp is to express that I don't like it when people demean a great game just because of the style of the graphics. I have a few friends who refuse to play games such as Okami, Wind Waker, Phoenix Wright etc because of the graphics and it irritates me to the core. I am a very big fan of a lot of the games on this list. Phoenix Wright is one of my most favourite characters of all time, and my favourite games include Okami, Journey, Paper Mario and other really stylistic games. It's something I highly advocate when talking about design for video games.

I don't care if a game has unrealistic graphics, as long as i have fun playing it, thats all that matters

roboto56 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
hell yes man, i agree with you here 110%! people who refuse to even try a game based on the graphics is like the one thing that pisses me off.... "oo the graphics are soo horrible i wont even try it!!! make it more like codD:" my god is that annoying... as you can tell im a 64 and a nes loverxD

I disagree, clearly the pokemon game graphics should have been modeled after real pokemon. Oh wait....

Haha, great stamp! And I TOTALLY agree!
MarioLuigi25 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012
Besides, some of my favorites games of all time are because of the fun and addicting gameplay, not because of the graphics. Super Mario World is easily one of the best video games I've ever played in my life and while it may not have 360 graphics or anything like that, it's still a game that I can play over and over and never get tired of. Good graphics doesn't automatically make a good game.
MarioLuigi25 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012
Video games were never meant to be realistic in the first place. They're meant to be fun and enjoyable. If you're looking for realistic stuff, then you're better off not even playing video games. I honestly never really cared much about graphics.
WeirdyMike Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't care for graphics much. I once said the Shadow the Hedgehog intro had good graphics and my friend slapped me. If it's visible and smooth-ish, it's automatically good graphics to me. I say Skyward Sword has good graphics, everybody else says it's terrible, unlike Call of Duty, which is apparently what society sees as the only video game in existence. People give me the evil eye every time I mention having a Wii. "THE WII SUKS IT HAS BAD GRAFFICKS PLAY CALL OF DUTY."

I agree I never care for graphics, but my friends do, so they like to insult my games.

I agree 1000% I play super Smash bros. on play64 my emulator, i dont just play it for the graphics
Lirema Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
So sad, so true :shakefist: You don't play a game for the graphics, you play for fun/entertainment
AzumiRedfield Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Final Fantasy 7, one of the best games in gaming history and all my friends wont play it cause they think it sucks cause of the graphics :/
ditto9 Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
That's lame. I'd never played a FF game before I picked up FFVII literally last month and even though the graphics are hilariously old and sometimes annoying, the game itself is just amazing!
AzumiRedfield Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
exactly! it has so much you can do
1-RandomZeldafreak Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Student Filmographer
totally agree with ya, games are suposed to be fun and none realistic to pull you out of reality i would rather play legend of zelda WW or SS anyday
the-newby Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012
I couldn't agree more with this. As a child, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door captivated me. Everything in that game was overflowing with character, from bustling Rogueport to the mesmerising Boggly woods. The characters were so full of personality, and the storyline enthralled me, it was one of the best games I have ever played. And yet it was far from realistic. I'm not saying I don't appreciate more realistic games too, but just as much can be conveyed by cell shading as it can by realistic, HD graphics. In the end it's about the gameplay, not how the game looks :D
TheBouncingUmbreon Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Spyro and Sonic count right?
yeah that really does in fact piss me off everyone only cares about graphics nowadays if they were a true gamer they wouldn't care gameplay matters :icondoublefacepalmplz:
BleachFreak86 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Too many gamers these days have become graphic whores! I don't care about HD graphics in games, because I want to be reminded that I'm playing a video game, and not watching a freaking movie!
Graphics don't make the game. Just looks at the classic NES, SNES, and N64 games, they still hold up even today. Yeah they may not be the best, but they are great games.
Wind Waker is one of the best Zelda titles ever, it's an amazing game. But people overlook games like this, because they are too blinded by COD, and Halo....
(end of rant)
WeirdyMike Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, when Ocarina of Time came out, the graphics were AWESOME, at least for that time period. People seem to forget that other games besides Call of Duty exist. CoD is alright, but... it can never compete with Zelda. NEVER.
