Sunset Overdrive is proof that adding some color to your game helps dramatically

Let's hope the grey, and brown fad dies in flames.

Taking a page out of Nintendo by actually making your game colorful makes for extremely awesome eye candy.

GG insomniac on a job well done!

There's snow and desert levels. I'll leave it to your imagination as to what happens to your crayon soldiers.

Color isn't gritty enough for the xbone audience sadly. o.o Though I guess they do like brown... and brown is a combination of various colors.

Changing Sunset Overdrive's palette to something closer to this would likely boost sales:

They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

I honestly couldn't agree more.

Recent, realistic examples for me would be Assassin's Creed 4 and Bulletstorm.

Loved the hell out those two and they wouldn't have been the same without the colourful environments.

Anyone remember FUSE? Of course you don't. I bet more people would have if they stuck to their original theme though.

So yes, more colour please. I don't want an Xbox One, but I do love the hell out of Sunset's art style.

Oh, and your next topic should be about awesome handdrawn box art, TC. I mean, have you seen how awesome Sunset's cover art looks?
Needs a neon orange box though.

So you want all games to have carnival themes? what's next? we get to play clowns as main characters?

I think that's what he means, yes. TC wants every game to be a clown sim.
