OP  8/27/14 12:32:15 PM#1

I am a EQ fanboy love the games been playing EQ one and two for years so when i heard that EQ Next was coming out i was excited to say the least, What it was announced and i saw the character graphics i was a little taken back. This year at EQ live i heard about stoybricks which is very interesting to me in a game mechanic but i keep getting pulled back to the character graphics. So i wanted to start a thread to have a constructive discussion on what others think. So what do you think?

Below i linked a video over at  extra credits on youtube they made a great video on the Uncanny Valley.

EQN is using a stylised art style so I am not sure your question is really valid as the stuff about uncanny Valley relates to using a realistic art style, which EQN is not.

You did not watch the video did you the uncanny Valley is much more that just a realistic style it is how human perception of the character graphic and any  video is only 8 minutes.

No he was right, its about being so real its scary but that small % off that makes it creepy because its not 100% like the real thing. EQN is not shooting for anything close to real looking. Its 100% stylized and shooting for something more like a Disney look. You want to talk about that, many of us are game but the title is off as this is not the uncanny valley. Its the point well behind where you get to the uncanny valley. IMO this is the rout to go with any MMO as it add longevity. The more close to real looking you make it the faster it goes out of style. I think games like Wildstar went to far info cartoonish but I think SoE found a balance that keeps EQN looking good but keeps away from to real looking so it does not get dated fast.

I think your right with Wildstar but did you see the EQ mote system that uses a camera to pick up your facial expressions and apply them to your avatar i was kind of creepy to me. Don't get me wrong i really want this game to make it. But i keep getting the ick feeling with i look at the character graphics but i also did with wildstar.

I use soemote in EQ2, its awesome. I hate with voice chat never knowing who is talking. With SoE mote you can tell who is talking and you get to know peoples voices faster. Its also a lot of fun to use. I know it sounds odd but sometimes in groups we have stopped just to make faces at each other lol. And that still not the uncanny valley. Here is a pic that may help you understand it better.

 

EQN char models would be to the left of that uncanny valley. Before you get to creepy on the right of it. EQN shoots for over sized eyes and expression that are larger then life. Thats how you know its stylized.

Somewhat ironic thread, as in reality EQ2 was the contemporary master of the Uncanny Valley in it's day, as was EQ.

 

It's the stylized cartoonish games that avoid it.

You can understand why some people dislike the art style of EQN when they compared it with Disney though.

I mean, Disney are lucky to still be going after 91 years...it is luck right, not skill or artistic talent? :)

I simply love SOEmote!

So far the graphics for EQN could be stick figures for all I care. What I have read about, seen video's of, had explained to me through reviews, experienced in Landmark and even had explained to me by the devs themselves tells me the game is going to rock. The fact I actually like watching Disney films and the art style doesn't bother me is just a bonus.

If you are trying to put a game down you don't use the same arguments that you have defended on other games you revert back to picking holes in the subjective stuff that is just a matter of opinion and bash everyone on that, not the most important part of the game.

As already stated by others, uncanny valley applies when anything, (robots, video games, movie CGI, paintings, etc) trying to look ultra-realistic, but are slightly off, so it looks weird/creepy.

EQN is stylized in it's character art, so Uncanny Valley doesn't apply here.

This picture makes me think of Disney so much that it makes me cry.

It is not for everyone, much like Haggis is not for everyone.

The sad thing is that it would have been so easy to create an art style that is for everyone. There would have been so many possibilities. It could have been stylized or more realistic, but why the hell had it to be Disney? Why would anybody like EQN to be associated with Disney? Who wanted this?

The reactions I heard reach from "I hate it" to "it looks ok" and "I don't care about graphics". But I never heard someone saying "Wow, this looks just like Frozen. I always wanted Everquest to be like a Disney movie".

EQN looks so promising but character graphics and animations kind of spoil the fun.

I thought uncanny valley was the feeling you got from very realistic looking things that are just a little off / wrong / surreal.

EQNext is completely cartoony, it doesn't even come close to the concept as i know it.

 

I never played any of the Everquest games, but personally absolutely adore the character styles they're going with!

Yep even i am confused with your post. EQ Nextt is clearly stylized which put it out of the area of 'uncanny valley'.
