Low Poly


Katphood

Recommended Posts

So I came across this trailer of an upcoming racing game called Racing Apex:

 

 

I noticed that the devs had added a #lowpoly to their link. I really like this particular style of graphics for nostalgic reasons, it reminds me of the good old days of the N64. 

 

I wanted to know if you guys have any favorite "modern" games that fit in this category. I know about Astroneer but that thing is still in the Early Acess stage. Yooka and Laylee maybe?

They're called 8-bit, but they're really 8-bit inspired low-poly ... Things.

 

Anyway, I do like this graphic style. It offers a lot of clarity which you can't really get with near-realistic graphics.

I really like the look of it. I think it's nice to see games with low poly modeling. This generation focuses too much - wayyyy too much on photorealism and not on gameplay (I'm looking at you Sony!)

 

I'd rather play this than a good portion of modern racers, how Need For Speed and Gran Turusmo have fallen. And we have the horrible racers that are called Driveclub and Assetto Corsa... etc etc. The only racer to enlighten me lately is Forza Horizon 2 but I'm going to wishlist this new "Racing Apex" as it tickles me fancy!

 

Thank you.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with Assetto Corsa? I had been eyeing it a bit lately... Shame Horizon 2 is console only, hear it's still better than 3 (which is starting to get kinda old, bigger map and more road tracks would've been nice)

 

As to the op there is super Superhot, which I think falls into this category. As does Consortium, I think.

Seriuosly... you call Assetto Corsa horrible racer? OMG... I really have to question your sanity... it's the most realistic car similation, that was ever made for home entertainment systems and you call it horrible... Playing FH2 compared to it, feels like playing a games for toddlers...

In all fairness, AC is, as I understand, supposed to be more on the simulation end of the spectrum. Forza Horizon edges more to the arcade (and FH3 has gone full ret...I mean, arcade, with the Hot Wheels idiocy). A comparison with the likes of Forza Motorsport 6 and Project Cars seems more appropriate.

 

(FWIW I like Forza Horizon because the cars at least handle somewhat realistically (I mean, other entries in this genre are games like The Crew...where all cars handle pretty much the same) *and* I can drive them on the open road. Though as far as I'm concerned even FH3 is nowhere near the first TDU (except for looks), way too little road to actually drive on and the drivatars aren't known as "drivatards" for no reason. Man, such a bummer TDU2 was such a disaster...)

The thing is, he called AC horrible racer, which is by no means correct statement. If he said AC is horrible arcade, I would not be bothered to react, because that statement is correct.

 

And a statement that FH2 made him enlightened, and calling AC as a terrible racer, just made me hit my head with a table *rollseyes*

In terms of realistic simulation, I'd go with old-school Gran Turismo and Forza 5. I also have Driveclub but highly advice against it. There was another japanese racing game that was very realistic but I can't remember the name of it.. I think it was on Dreamcast.

 

My favorite racers are San Francisco Rush 2049, Cruisin USA and Need For Speed. All Hot Wheels-ish racers I love. I tend to go toward arcadey, tis true. Motorstorm games are a nice mix of physics and realism on an arcade course, excudamiting the engine failure system of course.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

Your personal preferences still do not make Assetto Corsa a terrible racer. It is hard to master game, but even though I suck at it, It is still the best racing game on home entertainment systems.
