Are you kidding me with these graphics?

Because this is absolutely ridicilous.
When is TTG going to learn and actually implement some proper graphics and animations into their games?
While this style of graphics is too cartoony and doesn't fit the L&O genre at all but I wouldn't mind that so much if Telltale would just take the graphics aspect somewhat seriously.

Look at Jurassic Park: Good characters, good story. But the graphics look like they were, and they probably were, done by amateurs who never attended a graphic design class in their lives.
My 5-year old niece could have done a better job in that department. The character animations as a whole, body language, movement, lip synch and
facial expressions of emotions is completely unrealistic and it is actually done so poorly that it makes it impossible to get immersed into the game world. BTTF was the same, no effort whatsoever put into animations and thus, no entertainment value.

And so far L&O seems poised to do exactly the same mistakes that BTTF and JP did because there is no indication that L&O will be any better. It's too rough around the edges and with the graphics style they've chosen to use they've effectively destroyed the game before it's even released. I'm still hoping to be proven wrong, but somehow I have my doubts.

If they are not going to bother to work with the graphics and animations, then I'm not going to bother with paying money for the game. It really is that simple. The graphics aspect is so important in a computer game that in many cases, it determines whether it becomes a success
or failure. And it is one of the most contributing factors to replay value and how drawn you as a player get into the game.

    Yup, epic derail over here, but possibly for a reason. :D

    I do wonder how many TTG forumites are actually "true fans" of the L&O series, thus justifying their "demand" for "realistic" graphics.

    Anyone seen every episode of original & every spin-off series every year?

    And who registered under a name from the series??

    I like Law and Order. But I'd never watch every episode. It's a good show to watch once a week, or maybe every other week, but my problem with it and a number of other procedurals is their incredibly formulaic episode structure.

    I still feel the right to defend this, like anyone would. It was a decision, and it's not going to change, so after voicing your dislike of it you can either leave or stop complaining, but this discussion should not just keep running in the same loop it has.

    My dislike of what exactly? (Careful, it's a trick question)

  • It wasn't directed at you, but rather those who dislike the aesthetic.

    Ahhhhh. Then my work is done.

  • Wow, I was going to say a lot of stuff but others have already said it for me, and better then I would have said it too. There is still a bunch of stuff I could argue about but this has gone on long enough and the debate was just going around in circles anyway.

  • @NSM said: If you can't prove it and have no idea how to prove it, then why are you arguing it so vehemntly? It just seems really strange.



    I dont need to prove it because I know it is true that there are more telltale fans on the telltale website than bttf fans.

    (Hint: It is the name)


    Oh and im not gonna start arguing again because I just kept saying the same thing over and over to ignorant people.

    Like I said telltale is perfectly capable of making good graphics, more people will say: ''Man the graphics are crap'' than: ''Man the graphics are actually good I cannot play this game''

  • yoman45135: you'd be excellent at religious propaganda! "No need for proof! Just believe! It's true!"

    Someone get the Vatican, quick! Or, and here's another thought, try your luck with Scientology. I'm sure they'd find you a great help!

    But yoman45135 is right people. You can't prove Santa exists. You just have to believe!

    yoman45135, I own a car made of donuts and I drive it to the moon every weekend. Believe.

    It's called logic smartass you have to be dumb or ignorant to actually believe there are more bttf fans on these forums than telltale fans
