“Like what?” you are, perhaps, asking - in response to the question posed in the title of this video and it’s a little hard to answer directly without sounding judgemental so maybe it’s easier to say what Nintendo Games DON’T look like. By and large the games released for Nintendo systems–not just games made BY Nintendo, but games which are playable on Nintendo Hardware–don’t look like the “cinematic” polygon fests which have come to define competing hardware - a playstation, an xbox, a pc. This is not to say Nintendo Games don’t look GOOD – quite the opposite in fact – just that there’s a difference in the VISUAL CHARACTER, let’s call it, of pillar games like Animal Crossing, Splatoon or Fire Emblem and say … Dark Souls or Rise of the Tomb Raider or Persona 5. So that’s what we’re going to talk about today. Why is it that Nintendo has been able to create such a visual cohesion while other consoles have not? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
