  1. Do you feel that pixel art games are kinda overdone at this point?

      I say it's slowly becoming the general opinion that pixel games have overstayed their welcome. 

      They indeed have been welcomed; back in the 2000s where bleak, gloomy filtered FPSs were all the rage, pixel games were able to stand out better. And many independent developers were likely made famous when they started out with a more retro arcade styled experience. There's no denying that making sprites of only 3 to 8 colors is way easier to draw and program than a full blown 3d model with all its bells and whistle.


      But now, the games have long since fulfilled the goal they set out to reach in the first place, and serve not much of a purpose anymore. Yet so many indies still step into the competitive market because they're so easy to make. Take that away, they're all left with nothing.

      I agree. What's become a throwback has sort of become the "norm", right next to triple A things, to the point it really gets difficult for me to be excited for indie stuff because they typically go for pixel art, and usually 8-bit throwbacks at that.

      they're about as overdone as polygonal games

      This makes me feel like I should I should write a thread on the subject. Could be interesting to see different opinions.


      Unless there's one already done.

      Games that have pixel art are just as overdone in general as realistic AAA/sports games, grey/desaturated (ala PS2), desaturated and limited gritty colour palette that was used during the PS3/360 era mainly because of Unreal Engine 3 and more so recently games with a bright art style because of Unreal Engine 4.

      At the end of the day, it is down to the execution and skill rather than what art style a game uses. There are plenty of games that use nice looking sprites but there are many games to be fair do look kinda ugly and have to do something else to stand out (mainly in the gameplay or level design department).

      Wonder if vector graphics ever make a come back...

      Decided to make that topic - if anyone wants to copy 'n paste their thoughts.
