You can go after a game's mechanics, a game's sound, and even a game's grammar, but when you go after a game's looks, well, then you're treading on One Shots
territory. And when that happens, you'd best tread lightly, my friends.
Reader John took umbrage with Matt's take on Vanguard
, especially in regard to its art design, and sent in proof to rebut it: "Having started a new character in Vanguard
over the weekend, I set out to prove that, just perhaps, Vanguard
isn't quite as ugly as Matt Daniel seems to think. It would be a shame if people got the wrong impression, after all."
Personally, I adore Vanguard's
aesthetic, but not everyone shares that opinion, nor should he -- to each his own, right? Hit the jump to see John's screenshot in its full glory as well as many other terrific player-submitted pictures!
