I like 3D games more because they seem more realistic.
idk, personally a lot of realistic games look worse than a lot of more stylized games
95% of all [3D] realistic games made after 2015 both look, and usually entirely, suck.
That doesn’t mean they have to.
im not doing the contest
no… i though he ment infection and i made a whole infection game im dumb
but i dont know any thing about invasion games
In my game, the evil robots invaded the city, infecting all of the smart machinery they could get their hands on.
It’s both invasion and infection.
ok thanks for the help ill try the jam
ill try to make it 3d
That might take a bit too long.
Oh, no! I’ve already used 15 objects!
hehe my game is barely even started because I am using some weird physics stuff and I have little time.
Yes and no
I have seen some games on flowlab that don’t have pixel art, but I was just saying XD
They shouldn’t. But they nearly always do. You are what they call a “AAA bootlicker”, which is a very toxic individual that adores large soulless video game companies despite that those companies only see them as a pile of money. Fortunately for you, you are very respectful and intelligent, and mainly because of that, I believe that you have the potential for change.
Main chunk of post, most important information is in here as well
My recommendation for curing this disease is to play more indie (not necessarily Flowlab Indie, but like independent) games, and to limit yourself to about 5 or so big budget AAA games a year (and if you wanted some one year, but you already got 5, just wait until next year because these kinds of games stay on the shelves much longer and are far more accessible). Another recommendation is to never pre-order any video game, at all. No exceptions. Even if you like the AAA game, don’t buy it until it comes out, or if it’s broken/garbage at launch, don’t buy it until it’s fixed. If it’s a AAA game, always buy it on sale if you can. My last recommendation is to not be too amazed by the graphics or the trailer. When a game trailer comes out, sure, be excited for it, but don’t be blinded by hype; especially if the company/series/publisher has a really bad track record (take 343 Industries or Pokémon for example). Also if it’s a “new version of an older game”, expect it to be worse. Some examples of this are:
- Super Mario 3D All-Stars: Iirc there were some serious bugs, and most importantly they created artificial scarcity for a digital game.
- GTA trilogy remaster: Rockstar did an absolutely terrible job with these, the games are littered with technical issues like immense framerate drops, “blinding rain textures”, certain missions being impossible because of glitches, and not being able to interact with save icons to save progress. Add to this that they delisted (made unavailable to purchase) the original games (forcing you to buy a second-hand/used copy), and you’ve got a dumpster fire.
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) was made with more than twice the developers of the 2009 original game in roughly two thirds of the time it took for the original to be developed, and somehow the new one is way worse in just about every way. Talk about having too many cooks in the kitchen.
Overall, never give AAA devs and games priority over independent ones, as they are worse for consumers and far more likely to disappoint you. To avoid being completely negative, here are some relatively good AAA games made after 2015:
- Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018, remastered in 2020 with improved graphics in every way except for Peter Parker’s face)
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales (2020)
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (2023, releasing in 1 month and 1 day after day this post)
- Street Fighter 6
- God of War (2018) and God of War: Ragnarok
Finally, play Hollow Knight and check Steam or Epic Games for independent games. Both have frequent sales and free games, so affordability isn’t an issue most of the time, provided that you have a fairly new PC.
Where Armored Core 6
It’s just a preference, some people prefer the indie style while others don’t. While I admit companies like Pokemon are reselling the same game with bad graphics with more pokemon, not every AAA means it has to be bad, it doesn’t even mean the majority of AAA games are bad.
Some are bad and just looking for money, but others have actual work put into it
*Few. Most no longer do. While what you said was true CodeAlpaca, the keyword is “was”. It used to be, and it no longer is.
