Daemon X Machina Producer Believes A Lot Of Modern Games Look The Same

The annual E3 is commonly associated with dark, gritty and seemingly cutting-edge reveals. Whilst many of these titles do in fact go on to be huge successes, the producer of Daemon X Machina, Kenichiro Tsukuda, is of the belief there's nothing particularly distinctive - from a visual standpoint - about a lot of game releases nowadays.

Speaking to Kotaku at this year's show, Kenichiro Tsukuda was happy to divulge what he thought while at the same time hoping players would appreciate Marvelous Entertainment's title for its colourful palette and stylised design

The story is too old to be commented.

He's not wrong. A lot of games go for a similar gritty and stylized take on "realism". And that style doesn't look bad by any means, it's just that so many games go for that general look.

You mean the Game of Thrones/Walking Dead look. Skyrim/Uncharted.

Though really, I blame Peter Jackson and Lord of the Rings.

I was with you till you said uncharted, not the most stylized game but nothing really looks like it, most anyone who has played it can spot an uncharted screen in an instant.

So next to almost everything in uncharted isn't dilapidated broken down or in shambles by appearance?

Jungles and landscapes may be beautiful, but structures are in ruins. And then there are the ruins that look even more ruinous and falling apart at a light breeze.

Says a guy who used an AC artist?

Though he's not wrong about surrealism dying in mainstream gaming.

So I'm the only one who saw a pic without context and thought "New Armored Core game? Sweet!" only to read the announcement article?

Seeing that this game is its spiritual succesor of sorts, it's understandable.

I agree. I have trouble telling the difference between many AAA games these days.

Very true, wish we'd start getting more stylized games outside the indie crowd
