it seems that a lot of the times that a game comes out in a unique style (cartoonish, cell shading) people complain about how the graphics suck.
If you ask me I like the stylized games, a lot. My big problem is this:
The more realistic a game gets, the more they try to push the limits and make it look life like, the more I am able to notice what's wrong. Think about it, the more life like something looks, the easier it will be to pick out imperfections. That's why I like the unique style in games. Leave HD, 1080i and all that good stuff for movies until you're damn sure that the graphics are going to be incredible.
Don't get me wrong, there are some games comming about that are going to have amazing visuals. But something about next gen player models really bugs me.
