This started out as a quick question on a status update, but it'll be better suited for a thread. Here's the question: Does it bother you when there's multiple art styles within a single game? (RPG's, visual novels, or just games in general) For me, personally, it depends. As long as everything meshes well together, it's fine, if the characters and backgrounds are made by two different artists but it all comes together nicely then there really isn't an issue. But there was an instance of a game (I'd rather not disclose what game exactly), it was a dating sim, where the characters looked one way in their sprites and then their CG's were drawn by a completely different artist... And it was plain to see. It was pretty jarring, to say the least, as the sprites had a semi-realistic painting feeling to them while the CG's were cell-shaded anime. It took me out of the experience for a moment. Both styles I enjoyed, but they clashed pretty badly. So, what are your thoughts? We know that graphics play a HUGE part in the overall gaming experience, so when the art isn't consistent... Does it take you out of the experience? Does it ruin the immersion? Or do you just not really mind it? Let's discuss!
