As long as the game has good gameplay,

I wouldn't call the game having good gameplay yet, they normally copy and paste it from the previous gen with a silly gimmick thrown in. Them messing around with the tried and tested formula here could go very well or very badly.

@jump This game isn’t an exact copy of the past entry though. I was also talking in terms of games in general. I am not apart of the group of pokemon fans who’ve only ever played a pokemon game.

Currently Playing: SoulCalibur VI, Professor Layton and the curious village, SMT V.

Yep hence why I said that in the same post you just read. lol

Gamefreak's track record of innovation being so-so and them tying to innovate one of the few things Pokemon does well in this game is just as much as a concern than it looking like "a PS1 game".

A graphically complicated game requires more time and more testing. They probably can’t increase either because of their business approach

@jump The animations look so much better in this game, but I still can't help but not, be all that ok with it.

Don't get me wrong I'm happy there is some change to the animations, but then they ruin it when they make the pokemon look like they have just been dragged to the pokemon like a PNG.

I can see this game getting a wide range of review scores and ending up with an aggregate around 68-72 on metacritic. I've pre-ordered it and expect it to do better than that in my eyes, but there's such a bandwagon built up against the game and GameFreak that some reviewers are bound to compete with each other to see who will give the lowest score.

Personally, I see Pokémon as a kids franchise and that is where GameFreak seem to pitch most of the games. I think some younger players can be a bit intimidated by games that are overly graphically detailed and the more juvenile style to Arceus suits the intended audience. The fact that GameFreak also happens to have the attention of a significant number of man-babies that demand PlayStation production values to ease their personal insecurities is just an unfortunate side-effect of the success of the IP over the past 25 years.

@NintendoByNature Do you think? I mean, I'm expecting an 8 at this stage, but a 7 seems quite possible if there are performance issues and the gameplay's a bit underwhelming, so I figure if NL score it a 7 or 8 most people will be like 'Yeah, kinda expected that'.

@gcunit I feel like no matter the score, anywhere from 6 to 10 its going to be a mad house in the comment section. A 7 will be made out to be a 4 in the eyes of the angry bunch. Same with a 10. People will be irate and claim its NL being NL for a nintendo game. For the record, I'm super excited for the game and think it looks really fun. No matter the score, I'm still getting it.

@gcunit Nah, I feel like people would lose it if it was an 8 LOL.

So, I just heard that the article (Didn't read it, since I'm not contributing to the clicks they're getting), effectively boils down to the author complaining about the graphics in a personal standpoint, using opinions to support his argument, and then saying a bunch about why the switch pro is needed because it'll fix this, not understanding that this game isn't suffering because of weak hardware.

That's my favorite part of these arguments. "This game looks notably worse than other major Nintendo games on Switch, and thus we need an upgraded Switch, something that doesn't exist yet and thus none of these better looking games have taken advantage of it either."
