It's a mmorpg. If your main concern is graphics there's COD and ton of 'realistic' Korean MMORPGs. Graphics are average in this one but who really cares unless it's downright hideous. It's not. It's average but it's not too hard on eyes. It might be 'bleh; at worst. It's all about features/gameplay. Bring on the features we desire then it's up for discussion. If that's not your thing there's always Crysis waiting for you.

By watching Wildstar videos, they seems to be very humorous and not serious which actually is fun and matches their art style.  To me, even though their graphics are cartoonic but more of a Torchlight look than WOW, just my personal feel.

And WOW is serious? it is full of humor.

Thing is people just love to hate on WOW and its art style and graphics was just an excuse since same people have no problem playing Wildstar.

I want to play this game, I really do but I am about 90% positive I will not because of the cartooney graphics.  They say they are going for stylized but they could of gone something different then cartooney.  Hell at this point i would of taken cell-shadded or Painterly (gw2).

Wildstars current art style fits it way more.

It is very hard to take this post seriously. It's a bit like saying I don't like Shrek I prefer Lord of the Rings. There is no comparison, both are fantastic in their own right .... personally I am a Horror fan, but can still appreciate Kung Fu Panda. The Art Style is superb and I think there will be something to cater for many varieties of player with the diverse style of character direction on offer and certainly has the flexibility to balloon with viable alternatives well into the future. They are effectively fusing 'Fantasy' with 'Sci-Fi' which is a smart move and would bet my house that Blizzard's next outing 'Titan' will be structured in a similar fashion....swords and spaceships and all that jazz.

I think bringing Ragnarok into the equation is also misjudged. The wierd premise of that game where everyone is effectively a child and it's dreadful sycophantic overtones does not even compare with the wit and well devised 'dark' humour of Wildstar. If anything I hope Carbine become even more sinister ... their style would cope with it brilliantly.

I like realistic Graphics too, but sometimes the landscape might look great but the anatomy of the largely 'human' characters often leads a lot to be desired .... and always to many 'Elves' ....

This game is going to be a belter ....

Gameplay will always trump graphics for ANY player.  If you asked someone if they could have graphics with models that had 20 times the greatest engine could produce right now, but all you could do in the game is run around in a small circle, no combat or anything, or if you could have EQ graphics with a wide open world with a million things to do...100% of non-smartasses would pick the second lol.

 

That's why games like minecraft, LoL, WoW are so popular, gameplay.

I don't like the WoW / Wildstar aesthetic either, but I have to disagree that it's 'crappy'. 

 

Obviously, a lot of people like it.  It also enables normal people who don't spend tons of money on expensive PC's to play.  It's memorable.  And it works.  /shrug

The graphics don't bother me.

It's the endgame from 2003 that puts me off.

Yeah, I'm quite sure the Wildstar dev team was just sitting around, brainstorming, and decided to "rip off" World of Warcraft's art design. In fact, let's just go ahead and say that every game that has utilized a highly stylized art design ripped it off. Clearly, OP, your powers of observation are simply staggering.

So you are comparing something that is not really a game (a modeler where you can rotate your character) to an actual game and saying it proves graphics mean nothing to players?  That means nothing.

 

Everquest didn't have bad graphics for its time.  I care about graphics, a lot of "real gamers" care about graphics, and you don't have to have a super computer to run an MMO with good graphics.

 

All that said I think for an MMO designed to be F2P it looks fine.  If people still pay for cosmetics in a game like WoW I'm sure they will in Wildstar as well.  I don't see how it will really hurt them financially, and if you aren't paying then you shouldn't expect some fancy graphics engine.

 

For me the gameplay is not revolutionary enough to make me ignore my personal distaste in the graphics/atmosphere their choice of animations/art style.  I like the general setting of the game, but would prefer it were a different style.  They also have some neat ideas, but once I grow tired of building a fort in match PvP (13 assassins style, which admitted does sound awesome), I'm still in a world I do not enjoy.  Other MMO's offer gameplay I like, and more fit my style.

 

It matters it just is a matter of personal opinion whether someone can either get past it or not, and some prefer their "toons" to look like actual "toons" and not some artsy, highly detailed, realistic character.

Personally I think the game could capture that early wow feel, which is a good thing and the gfx are I keeping - it was the obvious path. However the problem is that we have all moved on, and worse if all goes to plan , the game will fill with jaded wow players who will power to end game - its going to turn into an unofficial wow expansion .

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (9500 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (480 Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(850 elementalist)

Now playing GW2/vanilla wow

Think of it like this. What other game out there will play really good on almost any computer, no matter how outdated someone's computer is. That's one of, not the only one though, reasons why the game still holds millions of subscribers. I haven't played in years, but it was a well rounded, fun game with plenty to do, no matter the graphics, (which I didn't mind).

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

it means that players don't want to play a model viewer...they want to play a game, they'll always pick a game over a model viewer :)

I like WoW's art style, the graphical quality has aged quite a bit at this point. It's still clean, but so many improvements are out there these days.

And while I appreciate Metzen's artwork and style I have to give the nod to Warhammer (the tabletop game not WAR) as it really was the basis for what we see in Warcraft and Starcraft.

I will always be curious how things would have turned out if Games Workshop had not pulled out from Orcs v Humans and WoW was actually World of Warhammer. Would blizzard have done it properly and given us many factions? Who knows, but I'm almost certain that Warhammer would be a much better video game franchise under Blizzard than everyone else who has taken a crack at it.

Not crazy about the art style at all. Still, its a game Im after. Not graphics.

My 2 cents.
