Its not that the game is childish, i think its the use of cartoon style graphics that makes it more 'child' friendly.

 Cartoon graphics are meant to appeal to children, they see them every day on TV after all, and its the 'fun' factor, to a child, cartoons are fun, their colourful and they catch at a childs imagination. Children are not really into 'realistic' graphics, they hold no awe for the technical details or how hard it may be to recreate them, that comes later, much later tbh. Its not that Cartoon graphics are childish, its that they appeal to children, its all about shapes and colours. Also there is the violence factor, in cartoons there is violence but nobody is every really hurt by it, its a cartoon after all, there is no 'angst' to distract the child, just the fun factor, more realism would be counter productive, and the more realistic the graphics are, the less fun it would be to be hurt, and to hurt others in a game, the game would become that much less appealing.

Thats why i think cartoon graphics are used in games to appeal to a younger audience, the game is meant to be 'child friendly'

I'm glad for Wildstar artistic choice.

 

Why?

 

Because it will keep away all the kids that think that they're too grown up to play a cartoonish game.

 

They can go to ESO. Wildstar will be a cleaner and better game for it.

 

Brilliant move by Carbine.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

Btw i m 39 years old with 2 kids (oldest one plays LoL).

I'm also totally impartial to graphic style. I got equally bored with both ESO and WS during the beta...

I didn't find Wildstar to be specially "childish", some of the humor used in the game would actually be hard to understand by a child. Just like WoW btw.

I agree though that they abuse the word "fun" a lot in all their advertisement, but once that virtual "fun" layer is peeled away, the game becomes very linear and therefore sadly... very boring.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

Will start by saying I enjoy Wildstar and I bought the game. Second, it is a little childish on some levels. 1. Graphics are not serious, they are cartoony. 2. The humor is silly and constantly makes fun of it self. So when you look at its package it is childish!!! At its core and it system is a hardcore game. Some people dont like the feel of the game because of that and will never see the hardcore systems under the hood. Some look at ESO mature rating and more realistic graphics and see a serious game in their mind. (((shrugs)))

Because it looks childish and the story is childish would be my guess. The core of the game is solid however, and from what I have heard, played, and read it offers plenty of "hardcore" for people who want a bigger challenge.

The bottom line is it's going to appeal to some and not others, I like the art direction personally, my problem was in the loose combat itself rather than anything to do with childish art or story.

Currently Playing: ESO and FFXIV
Have played: You name it

I like the art style.  Wow was cartoony because they wanted a game that would play well on most systems as of 2004.  If you look hard enough you can find the more "realistic" wow alpha footage.

 

Wildstar is different because it's intentional.  Like playing Crash Bandicoot Online and it even has doublejump.  Maybe it's childish but I'm 32 and love running and jumping around(my char in beta was Explorer).

I think it depends on personal tastes. I for one find GW2 very childish and I don't play it because it anoys me, but I don't find WoW, FFXIV ARR or WS childish one bit. And I have fun with those games. That's what matters.

Give FFXIV ARR a try. Join with the Recruit a Friend Program. We'll both get rewards.

Some people are just insecure and worried what someone might think (even if no one is going to see them).

The real question is, how many people who like WS have called someone a WoW kiddie?

  3. The facial expressions resemble TV shows for 3 year olds
  4. The combat effects are so overdone like in a Dragon Ball X movie
  5. The questing is so mind numbing, no adult could do that anymore.

 

Those are my Nr 5 reasons why i see Wildstar as a childish game

Exact same reasons for me, I assume WS is a great game since it seems to be popular but I have no desire at all to even try it because of how they are presenting it.

Because people also think Mario Zelda and Donkey Kong are for kids? If it has a cartoony look people think it's an easy game to play, but the funny part is that most of the times it's the other way around.

This is true in some cases, if you have a group of friends playing MMO's you will feel embarrassed to admit you like a game that the others don't like but in most cases I think people that see this game as childish look at it like watching children cartoons, its ok for about 5 minutes but there is no long term entertainment value for an adult there.

I would say WS is childish because its on par with Saturday morning cartoons, in all the videos I have seen it really does seem like they built it for teens and playing it would feel like its insulting my intelligence. The humor, the animations, the architecture all seem designed for a younger audience.

I need "adult" targeted entertainment.

There is nothing wrong with designing a game this way, I am not bashing it at all, I bet WS will be a big money maker but to me it seems obvious that they designed it for teens. Which is actually a good idea if you think about it :) teens sitting in their basement playing all day because they don't have jobs and their parents willingly paying for the subscription to keep them out of trouble.

I m 39, i like the game and i will play it. If anyone feels the game is not his cup of tea can stay away. That simple.

Btw at least Carbine is not afraid of giving 7 day trial on launch. You can play it and decide if you like it or not. They will not grab your money (as others do) with a half finished game.

Eh... honestly my first impression of the game was that it felt like I was playing a potty-mouthed Pixar movie. Ive never been one to say "omg its too cartoony" but I dont really want to play  Pixar game either. WoW does have a ...brighter color palette but at least its animations and characters dont really act like theyre straight out of a Disney flick. Sound didnt help either, I just turned it off after a while and literally felt relieved (most BG music is fine though). Not to mention the really bad overall design they made with the tutorial levels which were kinda boring at times.

Luckily I gave it more of a chance and now love the game but it took 8-10 levels at least. The first impressions of the game arent really going to help sell it IMO.

I'll play it, but I was used to WOW's derpy graphics, so it's not a big change one way or another.

 

If I hadn't been accustomed to the style via WoW? No I'd never even looked at this past the second screenshot.

Obviously any thing that is cartoonish is for kids.  I mean look at Archer, Heavy Metal, Futurama, and South Park.
