I’d like to add the Darksiders games to this list. Since the first game it looked like they were aping WoW while also playing the story like 99% straight which just doesn’t work. It has weird cartoony proportions for all the characters but also has a super edgy tone to everything and it makes it very hard to take seriously and enjoy.World of Warcraft design and sensibilities - that carries across to Fortnight, Overwatch, most of the new artsy looking "indie first party" games releasing on consoles.
All trash visual's imo. A dev with a vision and lazy visual art style.
Speaking of art styles with wonky proportions I also hate how every human looks in the Gears of War games. They all have early 90’s DC Bruce Timm proportions in a photorealistic setting and it looks off. Those kind of exaggerated body proportions only look good in stuff like Street Fighter and other games that are more cartoony in nature.
