The first time I saw the art style of both World of Warcraft
, I found myself enchanted. Bright colors, bold strokes, and exaggerated designs have always appealed to me, from movies like Beetlejuice to games like MediEvil
to places like Disney World. So when I encounter similar styles in MMOs, I'm drawn to it like a toddler to power tools.
That's not to say that I don't appreciate more realistic art. Guild Wars 2's
"painterly aesthetic" was a treat for my eyes, and I'll never get tired of Lord of the Rings Online's
I really want to hear about what you prefer in a game's art today. What game or art style resonates with you the most? What visuals draw you into these fantastic world and make you look around in wide-eyed wonder?
