Does anyone else see this a big problem? (2)

Artwork in modern RPGs, specifically JRPGs has decreased in quality in the last ~20 years to the point where most new games look like they were made using RPG Maker assets. Is it that hard for studios to hire competent artists, or do consumers actually prefer the modern weeby anime style where every character has the same expressionless face?

    The entire gaming industry has taken a "less is more" approach after Breath of the Wild popularized minimalist UI and menus.

          Man, how the hell Mitsuda ended composing music for gacha games?
          He deserved so much better.

            That song isn't Mitsuda, but he has done music for the game and is the executive music producer or whatever the title is. The score is handled by Procyon, which is his company made of his proteges. They also did the music for Xenoblade 3. The game is by Masato Kato and is off brand Chrono Break. Probably the most RPGlike gacha but still a gacha.

        It's not ideal but it's a far better half step. I really don't get how anyone can look at the remake art and think it's even acceptable let alone good. It's so boring.

      God this is criminal but at least the remake gives you the option to use the classic portraits. The real nightmare is the modern map sprites being "We Have Fire Emblem Heroes at Home" with no option to switch to something more fitting.

        I would very much like to know how the hiring and processing of this all went.
        >Well we have this series of games done by a well known artist with a very distinct style. Can't have anything like that in our game these days. Better find the dullest hack artist we can find to draw everyone dull and inoffensively bland.

        I swear this was probably done to appeal to self insert gays who can't wrap their heads around a hero looking heroic.

    Yes, art has lost personality and become sterilized corporate sh*t. Not only in video games, but card games, tabletop, books etc.
    That is why AI art isnt even so bad, art has already lost its soul.
    Perhaps now it will have to regain it to put up against AI souless outputs.

        He makes a good point. Corporate “art” was already becoming AI “art” before AI “art” was invented. The same goes for “cinema” and “literature”. I look forward to seeing what humans will come up with to stand out, if anything at all, else we might as well let AI take care of it.

        Been a while, but as I recall the paradox produced by the ending of Trigger(by defeating Lavos on 1999, the future Chrono and co. learned about him in no longer exists) was part of the reason everything went breasts up

      Lavos and Schala got stuck in Time Purgatory and want to destroy all reality rather than continue to exist/not exist forever. Through a cycle of broken time loops, they hijack both the ultimate achievement of Humans (Chronopolis and FATE) and the ultimate achievement of the Reptites (The Dragon Gods).
      The only way to stop them and to set the future back to the right path (the good endings of Chrono Trigger) are to go into Time Purgatory and free Schala. Since that is OUTSIDE of Time, it means that Schala never has the chance to be corrupted by Lavos and never has the chance to frick with the timeline.
      Once Schala is freed, the whole game and backstory undoes itself and everyone gets to have a nice summer vacation. The end. However, this means Kid never exists as a "daughter-clone" and Schala gets shunted to 1999AD and is seemingly the only one to retain memory of what transpired.

          Ultimately not really. It is just an excuse to go on an adventure through pretty pre-rendered backgrounds while Masato Kato barfs sophmore year philosophy on you.
          Chross real seems like an "artist's game." The music is great, the visuals are great, but it comes off as incredibly masturbatory.
          I like it a lot while thinking it is only decent as a game.
