Okay, I've got a request. It's a little bit specific, but I'm sure you guys will know what I'm talking about after watching the attached webms. It's an aesthetic that permeates a lot of the shows from the 1995 to early 2000's. Washed out colors, tactical/military themes, industrial music, unironically "cool" characters with cold attitudes.The Matrix has some of that feel, I think, and Blade, too. I've been trying to put my finger on this aesthetic for a long time, I love it too much. It's so fucking pure.

Anyway, is there a name for this style? Also, fucking please, please post games that have that feel, too.

Neocron. It looks a lot like Deus Ex and Anachronox. The downside is that it's a dead MMO, there is a server maintained by fanboys, but it's hilariously broken and buggy. Exploring the city felt pretty nice, but I remember one of the faction HQs out in the wild having a bugged entrance. I takes a group of dedicated autists to play with.

No, Drossel is minimalism and smooth edges done right ,as in, only done to contrast with the rest of the asthethics and to display its superior tech.

Now compare Halo 1, 2 and 3 with Halo 4 or 5 and see why Bungies art design was so good you could identify Tech from any of the 4 factions (UNSC, Covenant, Flood, Forerunners) they all contrasted with each other.

Even all 3 Matrix movies did contrast right even with the Machine and Zion tech almsot overlapping.

Now watch something like Elysium or play Destiny and tell me you see any contrast between anything, its a fucking overdesigned blur full of smooth shit.

I was just thinking about this recently. I just wonder how you capture the 90s anime aesthetic, on purpose? Cell shading? Is it best to capture it indirectly like anons point out half-life does?

Each era has its own animation techniques that become popular, and the 90's had theirs. If you were to study that, then play it back through VHS, you might get something similar. Then it's just up to lots of the smaller aspects, like specifically writing as though no one has decent cellphones. Otaking does a great job at replicating 80's anime, and a lot of it is thanks to him clearly understanding the process that went into them.

Cell shading is stupid. It feels artificial and atrocious. When thinking about adapting 2D to 3D, you need to take tips from Overwatch. Transfer simple things directly, but change, exagerrate, dampen or otherwise translate the nuances. Cell shading is primitive, it's really really dumb, and it almost never looks good. It's a fucking sledgehammer approach to adaptation. The one thing I can get behind when thinking about this stuff though is posterized lighting, because it's unique to anime and it doesn't hurt the 3D look much.

So basically, adapt to 3D, do not cling to the anime artstyle too much, make the lighting more cartoony, desaturate the fuck out of the colors and bang you're done. The only important part from there is animation. Overwatch in particular has frame-by-frame animation specifically because of the importance of it when translating 2D to 3D.

His lines. Are. NOT. SOLID. His outlines are fucking sketchy all over the place, he should spend less time giving everything rimjob lighting and put more time into making sure he doesn't botch up his own keyframes.

Otaking is good, but honestly he'd need someone to do corrections for him to be as great as the high-budget high-talent OVA scene he wants to emulate a lot.

Video Girl AI is a unique case of a series that would intentionally replicate choppy busted VHS visuals while still being an actual VHS release. It's best watched on a VHS for that reason alone, watching it on a flat screen with a cleaned up copy just wouldn't work. It's still not as genuine as actually smacking a VHS a bunch before watching something, but it's still interesting.

It's pretty obvious it's not possible for a single guy to perfectly imitate a 3~ decade old artstyle that's no longer in practice and cost a truckload of money to produce, and it's not fair to hold that against him. It's more that he's closer to it than almost anyone else trying, and if we're talking imitating something without the original tools and teams, he's doing just fine.

Unless OLED becomes popular, most studios will shy away from using full blacks and more somber palettes. That style looked best on CRT TVs. Modern screens have shit contrast and even old shows look bad on them unless you tweak with the settings a lot.

Shaft is the studio that consistently tries a more old school art direction and even their shows are extremely shiny compared to shit Shinbo directed in the 90s.

It is VERY hard, dare I say impossible, to display a true black pixel with modern panel tech. The backlight will always bleed out. OLED gets away with it because it works like a pigment and it is most likely the future of display tech unless something really disruptive comes around, like some earth-shattering breakthrough with ELDs or something.

When OLEDs become the standard we will see a massive shift in art direction in anime and vidya. Hopefully we will get our pure black and high contrast art styles back. Films, of course, will not be affected because they always are made with projectors in mind, though digital film already created a huge shift there.

They modified her physiology to be a stealthy assassin. Side effects include becoming a sexy, emotionless femme fatale. They also brainwashed her into killing her own husband, which she's really not happy about but can't do anything about it. So there's some mindfuckery hotness in there, too.

I've played a lot of it because I genuinely liked it at first. Most of the issues come from hero interactions and overcomplication that comes from the high hero count, but my personal pet peeve are the anti-fun abilities. As I've said before, it has a lot of fun bits lodged inbetween the garbage. Lucio is very fun, Genji is fun, Widowmaker is fun, fuck - most of the damn cast is fun. The problem is the fact that in order to prevent the game from being a complete fragfest and be a more strategic type of thing, they've implement a fuckton of crowd control abilities that make you want to break your fucking keyboard. McCree's flashbang stops Sanic-tier high mobility characters in their fucking tracks, Orisa's fucking Halt orb does pretty much the same thing, Mei is fucking unbeatable in a true 1v1 setting because her entire character is CC.

It's a game that had a good shot, a real solid chance to be good. It has generally colorful characters with enjoyable, charismatic personalities, it has a nice fucking theme going, it has a literal separatist terrorist group with an actual reasoning behind the characters' actions. It has fucking sexy waifus. Sexy waifus - in a 2017 western AAA game, for fucks sake. It had a good chance to be good, but they fucking rekt it with terrible design and balance decisions that make Facepunch look good. It fucking hurts me, too - this game feels really smooth, just feels like garbage when you actually start learning how to play properly - thats when all of it's issues start showing up and the game turns sour.

thats like 1990's industrial/techno/cyberpunk or the first era of media made by people who watched blade runner one too many times

its like a sort of "hyper" industrial aesthetic, exaggerated "near-future" technology and architecture in a stylized form

the original set design boils down to what someone thought tokyo in th 1970s would be in 50 years and adding every historical flair of archetecture he could think of (Mayan pyramids, byzantine/late roman structures) under the context that its now a 21st century office building a la the johnson AT&T building is a neoclassical temple rebuilt as a giant 50 foot office building

I know they did that's what I'm saying. They explained that Marathon works with ticks, so they doubled the amount of ticks in Marathon Durandal meaning that they basically they had to rewrite and redo a lot of the stuff because of that and because of new bugs. I took them a long time to fix the game thanks to this.

Alephone one is able to run at 60fps but you'll probably mess up the games as they are now. Meaning that people themselves need to redo and rewrite the games source as they are now. It's all tied pretty hard as was usually the case with games back then.

Dunno, they might but Doom is less of a cluster fuck than Marathon. Doom was made to be changed easily.

Also Alephone is still being worked on. They have a Git version that they still update, added some better mouse controls and all that but it breaks some custom HUDs as it is now. Not surprising because it's basically a dev build.

That's mostly for art assets and levels. Anything that changed stuff like weapons or enemy behavior required a hacked executable before source ports added the capability. At this point Doom source ports are definitely more flexible than Aleph One.

From what I can tell, Marathon in it's vanilla form probably was about as easy to mod as vanilla Doom and apparently came with a map editor. Doom just got more mods because no one owned a Mac at the time.

They also have shitted up their community with their "toxicity bullshit".

So you have devs spamming the "esports" and "competitive" narrative, but then also witch-hunting the "toxic gamers" (which, mind you, is people just telling other people to not throw or to pick characters relevant to the other team's composition, you know, being a team game and all that).

Also they say the game has to be fun but all the balance patches go towards the competitive scene.

Cel shading is a tool, it can be used well and it can be used badly. It seems to work best with simple geometry where it doesn't form weird shadows that would usually be hidden in softer shading styles. Guilty Gear Xrd got around this by manipulating the normals on the models to act like simpler geometry with light. If you look at something like Berserk 2016, you can see they didn't bother to do that and it looks like dogshit.

That said, cel shading doesn't have much to do with 90's aesthetics. The best way to do 90's aesthetics is to make the game feel like the 90's. Focusing purely on visuals for it is very superficial.

You will only find that kind of look in 90s japanese sci-fi. Especially a lot of sci-fi PS1 games have that kind of look, sadly that changed around after Halo came out and western studios adpated to a new type of clean minimalistic sci-fi. I don't know why either, but for some reason the trashy washed out sci-fi is much more comfortable for me than the new detatched and cold modern stuff too. I've always wanted to live in a Cowboy Bebop/Ghost in the Shell kind of world.

It was entirely a creative outlet for Peter Chung and the show's various writers to be experimental and play around with various science fiction concepts. The series is made to be "morbidly, disturbingly fascinating", rather than visually appealing. Everything in the show is deliberate which, along with the bizarre and frequently vague nature of the show, gives a sort of paranoia that more is going on underneath the surface even if nothing really is. And hey, paranoia can be fun.

I enjoy it mainly because it's particular flavor of weirdness appeals to me, along with the reasons listened above. I will readily admit it's not a show for everyone.

Clean, minimalist design was conceived in the mid-fifties by Dieter Rams et al., retards. The "gritty aesthetic" of the 90s was a short-lived trend that, like all trends, now looks incredibly dated. In 50 years, 100 years, pick a number, minimalist designs will retain their appeal because they're purely functional and form should be derived from function.

Form done for no other reason than for the sake of doing it is fucking retarded, it's the aesthetic taste of a child.

Minimalism for the sake of minimalism is shit. Good designs tend have some simplicity, but is also complex enough to be interesting. The problem is finding the right balance. It seems like people gradually started to forgot how to do that sometime between the early 2000s and now. Probably has to do with lack of limitation or something.

Well obviously things shouldn't be too simple, only as simple as they have to be. But the moment you start adding forms that are simply inspired by tradition or what you think looks cool and nothing deeper than that, you immediately date the design.

Japanese armor was not a traditional source of inspiration for science fiction at this time. That's what made Vader's helmet so unique. So I would argue it is the opposite of traditional. Using cultural history as an inspiration is different from doing the same designs the people who came before you did.

The Japanese were building minimalist tea houses in the middle ages. A huge part of their cultural aesthetic is based on minimalism, and this is just one example in history. The kikes have sure been pulling strings for a long time. I wonder how they weaseled their way into isolationist feudal Japan.

If anything, the kikes seem to agree that minimalism is autism.

While I can understand that minimalism can be elegant, the focus on concrete slabs and monolithic gubmint housing, be it residential or public function, is alienating and comes at a bad time of cultural unrest and aimlessness.

to ad my 2c, this art style died because everyone is too self conscious. Notice this love of pastels came in at the same time as ironic humor. Modern design choices are a visual representation of modern man's cowardice and inward looking nature. It's why scifi is dead. Everything must have neutral colors and round corners so no one gets their feelings hurt. All action movies must always make fun of themselves lest the writers admit they can enjoy something so "anti-intellectual" as the comic book it was based upon. Animation? Stickmen, because you can't fail if you don't try.

The aesthetic I like the most is the unrealistic military contemporary theme (or set in the near future) that has brutalist architecture, big fortified complex, and a stern faced Sergeant holding a cigar in his mouth. The best example of this is Team Fortress Classic. It seems to me that every late 90's multiplayer Shooter had this aesthetic. Probably because mapping was simple back then, and since the 3D engines weren't as detailed as today, they often looked similar to each other : flat walls and bridges, concrete textures everywhere, metal beams, big corridors, modern forts, metal crates… Like if you lived on a planet that had been perpetually at war forever, and where everything building was built for a military purpose. I find it extremely comfy to occupy a big fort with you team, fighting for your base rather than an abstract objective. Maybe it's fair to call that theme Military-Fantasy, I personally refer to it as 'Bunkerpunk'.

I never liked the archaic aesthetic of TF2, wish they had kept the militaro-futuristic atmosphere of the Classic version.

Other examples of this aesthetic are : Half-Life mod Firearms, vanilla Half-Life, Quake 2*, Unreal Tournament

*Which engine was the basis for GoldSrc (Half-Life). That explains the similar aesthetics, because it was easier to make interior maps than landscapes with that engine.

I just thought I'd request clarification:

What exactly is cell shading? I thought cell shading was either the actual shading in of "cells" in 2D animation or it refers to the Wind Waker-esque graphical style that's meant to mimic the original animation technique.

This poster seems to be talking about the flaws of the "anime art style" in 3D rather than the actual technique anime was using in the '90s.

Cell shading is a "misheard" term. It makes sense, because most people that use it are referring to the shading being done using defined areas and solid colors without gradients, as well as giving 3D objects solid outlines to create a 2D feel.

In reality, the term came from celluloid sheets used in traditional 2D animation - hence "cel". The term is really "cel shading" but most people say "cell shading" because it makes perfect sense.
