More about Cartoon MMO Games
While some developers are concentrate lots of efforts on the creation of realistic graphics, Cartoon MMO Games create an impression of a living drawing driven by unrealistic laws of physics. Realistic graphics and animations don't look natural if created with low budgets; it makes the picture look unpleasant and even horrifying to human eyes.
Moreover, the realistic environment may be unsuitable for some games, and that's why developers create their unique visual style. The most common way to simplify the visuals is to make them look more like a cartoon. In this case, the games look prettier and can attract more players with its beautiful world and animations.
A lot of indie projects feature cartoon stylized graphics because it's cheaper and easier to implement in a new game. However, this style does not only belong to indie games, but a lot of notable and famous projects also use exclusive graphics to make their game stand out from others.
Cartoon MMO Games are more recognizable by the community because they all look different because of the chosen visual style. It is easy to identify a game by a single screenshot, which is much harder in the case with games that try to stand out with a realistic graphical style.
Simplified graphics bring another positive aspect which is the broader accessibility for the players because it does not require that many resources for a console or a personal computer to run it, therefore bringing more players to the game.
