You say you're not a snob, but it sounds kinda snobby to me

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know, would you call someone an art snob for pointing out an oil painting is not a watercolor? Or that something with color in it is not grayscale?

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
mmm, but I think it's reasonable to recognize that the term is being used to convey style. sometimes that's just how words evolve. and when people insist on semantics, they do tend to get called snobs.

But not all distinctions are on the level of oil painting versus watercolor. That's not necessarily a valid comparison. There are distinctions that exist which are pedantic.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
It's at best pedantic. Like, it's not really that surprising that promo copy would use the widely-understood term instead of the technically correct one, nor do I think it's especially objectionable.

I'm the anon that's also bothered by this below and for sure it's 100% pedantic. Being a pedant, I can see where OP is coming from though lol

I haven't really thought about it but now that you mention it I've seen more and more people use 'pixelated' and '8bit' interchangeably and now it bothers me too.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
"8-bit" is about more than just graphics though - that's the most obvious signifier but it's as much about design and gameplay styles and so on too

(speaking as somebody who grew up on an 8-bit computer, not as somebody with any particular skin in the game regarding modern games developed in an apparently 8-bit style)

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
well for one thing 8-bit is shorter

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 07:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I get what you're saying and maybe in some cases it's someone cashing in, but "8-bit" is definitely a more generic term these days for "retro" video games. I think of it more as a general art style rather than literal 8-bit gaming. It's trendy and nostalgic but I don't see much wrong with that. Some games in that style are really creative, some are shovelware. Like any game out there on Steam or whatever.

Well, because most of the time it's not beautiful pixel art, for starters.

If you look at actual pixel art by professionals from before 2000 it all looks much better and has more shading, more depth, and more visual interest than any indie game out there. The pixels are smaller, and arranged to not call attention to themselves. There's clear distinction between the foreground and the background, which is not something I take for granted anymore. I'm not saying everything has to be SFIII or Garou: Mark of the Wolves, but....come on.

Basically the only indie game that has actual beautiful pixel art is Shovel Knight, because the devs worked hard on that game.
