  1. 👎 The original Xenoblade Chronicles was the only entry whose art style I could live with. Now they butchered it too and it looks like a generic weirdo anime game.

      1. well I mean the characters were anime lookin back then but they culdnt get it the way they wanted it to, due to hardware limitations and muuuuuuuch smaller budget at the time.

        “Generic” tht usually only implies if the designs are uninspired and low effort, which they arent.
        “Weirdo anime” like I said earlier, it was ALWAYS anime styled designs.

        If anything, his design in Xenoblade 2 was waayyy too soft and actually meh.
