    Love this! As an art director and indie mobile developer - I'm pretty tired of the "wonkified" bright, colorful cuddly kiddy look on so many games too. I understand why we do it - to target the largest audience possible and give off a "Hey! I'm friendly, come play me!" appearance, but I've been really trying to steer away from going too far down that rabbit hole with my current game - dark breakers. My partner and coder really wanted to go that route initially with it, and I told him it's not a game for kids, it's a game for teens/young adults- but he kept fighting me on it- showcasing all the other CoC style games out there. Eventually i compromised with something in between realistic and cartoony.

    Racing games with motion blur and HDR.

    2010's? Is that what we call this decade? I suppose noughteenies does make you sound completely homosexual. Anyway, how about "gritty" CCTV / mobile phone footage style - Manhunt 1&2, Kane & Lynch 2, The Suffering, I am Alive, Hitman Absolution (a bit). There's probably others. At least Team Ico's wonderful, almost dreamlike look didn't get adopted by mass market fodder. And OddPlanet... Good Lord.

    Dystopic, steampunk, war, anime, medieval looks pretty much.

    I feel like cel shading is underused. I would love to see a modern game really commit to it. Is it too much to ask for a new Jet Set Radio?

    Hopefully Gearbox will make a Borderlands on the next gen consoles. That and Telltale's games seem to be the best we get for cel shading.

    It's not too much to ask, but it still won't happen. Sadface
