Oh, the irony of this post.

from oh_no_im_melting
why does GRAPHICS have its own separate category of measure why is this a problem
How often do you judge a game by its screenshots? How often do you think a person visiting the site would?

(even if a game looks like garbage dont you think that the gravity of a FEATURED STATUS prevents ppl from being deterred outright)
And this isn't exactly what happened with Fable of Heroes and Legendary Legend?

um come on halibahibaq -_-;;;

yeah screenshots are the 1st thing that a person looks at when browsing a game profile and one makes a lot of judgements about a games quality based on them blah blah blah this is obvious to everyone

the point was that rather than visitors looking at shots and moving on as the case might understandably be with an existing rmn member browsing through the mundane (read: non-featured) gaems section or whatever where THE SCREENSHOTS ARE THE ONLY MEASURE OF QUALITY prior to actually dling and playing the game, we can expect visitors to actually PLAY the featured games because the FEATURED STATUS ITSELF IS A KIND OF MEASURE OF QUALITY prior to dling&plying the gaem (hmm this game on this site doesnt look that hot but its on the front page and featured so there must be something beyond the graphics i guess ill try it out)

and im not as read on the going ons of rmn as you obv are but the impression i got was that people mostly found problems with FH&LL based on their gameplay experience of them and not based on how shitty they thought the screens were. obviously if im somehow wrong about that and it is an example to the contrary then i concede every point

god this isnt even the crux of the thread helap

Then, there's the trouble of games that only look good. Remember Lux Licentia? This is a game that looks good. The artwork is stunning, and having something like this on the frontpage as featured would make RMN look oh so awesome. But you know what? This game is a nightmare to play. It has no business being featured because it's nearly broken in several areas.

THEN, there's the trouble of games that ARE good but LOOK bad. RTP is generally frowned upon as the mark of 'teh newb', but they can be put to good use by a talented developer. But even at their best, they still look like stupid RTP games. So what happens if you have a game like this that excels in every area...except its looks? The game is the best you've ever played and it looks like garbage. Should it not be featured because it's not pretty enough? Does it not deserve our attention for being a quality product, though its superficial traits disguise it?

why does GRAPHICS have its own separate category of measure why is this a problem

any featured gaem is going to have a playable release so any problems not evident in the shots are going to reveal themselves in a playthrough in other words great graphics wont deceive anyone into thinking a shitty game is a great one and shitty graphics wont deceive anyone into thinking a great game is a shitty one (it doesnt look like lux licentia fooled anyone!)

the move is to feature games that are great as a whole it is not to make the front page look pretty (and even if a game looks like garbage dont you think that the gravity of a FEATURED STATUS prevents ppl from being deterred outright)
