Seems like all strategy games these days must be le ebin gay 3D.

Motherfucker. I forgot this game existed. I used to play the shit out of it as a kid.
>>
>>1150885
heckin yes! my god i just love the ANIMATIONS and HDR LIGHTING it's all so REALISTIC

there, is that what you were looking for?
>>
>>1150885
As long as they don't look like spreadsheets like Auroa and Rule the Waves II, they pass for me.
>>
As far as multiplayer goes, high-end graphics don't add anything to the experience and even can be a hindrance.
Devs shouldn't focus so much effort on them because serious players are going to play on the lowest settings for superior performance and low ping anyway.
>>
No. And if you say yes, kill yourself zoomer nigger faggot.

3D graphics not only decrease performance, thez also tend to be more confusing since it is hard to make 3D that looks good from multiple angles. But there needs to be some minimum standard as well, for example the terrible graphics of openX-com are a no-no from me, as in there one cant even tell what is going on. Excel sheets are fine as long as they are easy t read. The only games where 3D is good are building games such as anno or banished.

how I wish Terra Invicta was 2D...

Everyone's going to claim that graphics don't matter to them and then endlessly complain about muh graffix the next time a new game comes out. Same as it ever was.

When people say they don't care about graphics what they really mean is they're blinded by nostalgia and need to overlook bad graphics for their 20 year old "classics," not that they're actually okay with bad graphics.
>>
>>1150885
If you want me to spend hours looking at something make it easy on the eyes.

I don't care about high-end graphics at all, but the game has to be aesthetically pleasing. I won't play a game with over-saturated colors, bad clarity or awful UIs
>>
>>1151465
There's a difference between simple (or even non-existent) graphics and ugly graphics though. If the design looks like shit it doesn't matter how advanced it looks.

IMO Banished would work about the same in 2D environment.

I remember being disappointed Hearts of Iron 4 would have those stupid fucking models you can#t turn off instead of counters

Not really as long as the interface doesn't suck to the point you need literal spreadsheets and third party tools to help you deal with all the shit you gotta handle.
Sometimes it feels like graphics and the interface quality goes hand in hand.
>>
>>1150885
I am less likely to buy your game if it look like; a) a flash game, b) a mobilephone game, c) it belongs on an Atari 2600.
I like sprites, I like 3d models, if your artstyle ain't shit, you might make money off me.

>those stupid fucking models you can#t turn off instead of counters
You can turn off the models, you just can't tell if the unit is moving or not if you do.

I actually really like how this map looks, even if I would probably be too stupid to actually play the game.

Its a mod map, the original map isn't as pretty.
>I would probably be too stupid to actually play the game.
Honestly everyone feels fucking stupid until they have some small scenarios under their belt since there's a lot to learn, track and the consequences are pretty noticeable. I think the game is pretty interesting if you can deal with the initial hurdle and the shock that comes with it.
The allies economy is far easier to manage if you decide to try it.

Slightly. I'm happy about strategic view in Civ VI and vastly prefer it but V strategic view looks really shit, so I'd say it does matter a bit.

>>1151465
I never complained about graffix in my life, to me all past 2008 has been needless.

The actual graphics themselves of old games isn't what usually bother me, it's the tiny ass resolutions.

I'm curious, what do the forts in Slay do? I watched let's play and never got them.

They defend with the strength of a spearman (you need a knight to knock it down). They're immobile but require no upkeep.
