Fun Topic:Whats the worst graphics on a game you had played?

by RCBH928 Fri Mar 13, 2020 12:15 am

For me its Dungeon Keeper. Early 3D title, looked like mushy mud, hard to distinguish images, made even worse with the artist choice of having bending/surrealist like objects.

Dungeon Keeper ain't that bad. At least not when I compare it to the likes of Dark Rift or War Gods on Nintendo 64. I realize we have had plenty of discussion on how the N64 has aged, but those two look particularly bad to me.

Tekken the first is ugly as shit and has aged very badly. Virtua Fighter took the right approach by using almost no textures.

Final Fantasy VII is downright appalling. Nomura's design + early PS1 graphics. Stunningly bad.

PresidentLeever, you need to add the SNES port of Pit-Fighter to your list. I've seen donkeys that look less like ass then that game does.

Not gonna mention Atari 2600 games because of the limitations the creators had to work with.
A couple of PC games come to mind.
Morraff's Dungeons of the Unforgiven which had high-res svga ability but ...
Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain all the world graphics look blocky like they were weirdly scaled. The graphics might be decent if it weren't for that, but they bothered me so much I stopped playing even tho I was enjoying the gameplay.
edit: oh yeah, pit fighter I think wins the prize here.
just thought of another: Where's waldo for NES.

Go for easy mode and pick the character with a 1 frame attack.
