With the growing diversity of the game industry, the graphics are also improved and trendy, creating something new for players. However, to surprise gamers, it is not always necessary to create games with realistic graphics to every detail. There are many games that possess unique graphics, giving us a particularly unforgettable experience. Here are the top 8 games that use monstrous graphics to bring exciting experiences to players.
The Artful Escape
The Artful Escape is a side-scrolling adventure from the Beethoven & Dinosaur studio, released in late 2021. You will play as Francis Vendetti – a rock enthusiast who is under pressure to follow in the footsteps of his uncle – a legendary folk singer.
When entering the world in the game, you will find it is designed as the name The Artful Escape. This game not only takes players through the uplifting moments of music but also has a very eye-catching graphic style. Although it only lasts about 4-5 hours, The Artful Escape still won praise from critics and gamers. Maybe the graphics in the game look weird, but it is thanks to this weirdness that The Artful Escape can conquer those who “like strange things”.
This game is famous partly because it is… very difficult, and partly because of the graphic style of “classic” like cartoons in the 1930s. The idea of thinking and getting started. Cuphead’s development began in 2010. Each level and animation of the characters in the game are meticulously hand-drawn and meticulously cared for.
If you watched Looney Tunes cartoons (Bunny Bunny, Daffy Duck) as a kid, you’d see Cuphead look exactly the same. In addition, there was jazz music in this era, so the developer also included it in the game, contributing to creating an “atmosphere” no different from the “1900s back then”. In the game world, Cuphead may be a bit weird, but compared to classic cartoons, it feels extremely familiar. The game also has a 2D shooting style like the legendary Contra: You (along with your teammates) will use “guns” to shoot down bosses while trying to dodge its bullets. As I said at the beginning, it’s easy to listen to, but not easy to play.
Referring to games with weird graphics, Okami is definitely indispensable. This is a game that combines elements of Japanese folklore and mythology to create an unmistakable uniqueness. In a nutshell, it looks like a 3D Zelda game with images inspired by Japanese ink paintings. You will not have the feeling of playing the game but it’s more like going to see a picture. At the same time, the combat, exploration, and gameplay elements in Okami will all be “buffed” up a notch thanks to this extremely unique watercolor graphic style.
Of course it still has its flaws, but this is still an extremely bold AAA game and plays very “cookie”. It seamlessly blends adventure-filled campaign gameplay with sophisticated graphics and unique gameplay mechanics. You will play as the Sun God in the form of a wolf Amaterasu. Your mission is to destroy the monsters using the Celestial Brush. Not only that, this brush also helps you solve puzzles in the game.
If we talk about games with weird graphics without mentioning Journey, it is definitely a big omission. The game is short but full of beautiful moments for you to remember forever. In the game, you will play as an unknown traveler, wearing a red cape on a journey across the desert. Along the way, you will meet travelers, helping each other naturally without needing to communicate verbally.
The graphic style in the game will captivate even the most demanding gamers, although it is simple, it is still beautiful and flexible in a very personal way. Each of us has a story of our own life, and the game emphasizes that too. Journey is real life according to the game version, making you ask yourself a lot of things in life, then each person has a different answer, no one is the same. The game is quite short and can be completed in just 2 hours, longer or faster depending on the person, but overall it is still worth the experience. Another interesting point is that gamers may not know that the travelers they meet on the way are also other players until the game is over.
