Very little CGI was used in Mad Max.

"Over 80% of the effects seen in the film are real practical effects, stunts, make-up and sets. CGI was used sparingly mainly to enhance the Namibian landscape, remove stunt rigging and for Charlize Theron's left hand which in the film is a prosthetic arm." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt13...

Comment Old guy here - pixel art reminds me of bad games (Score 5, Interesting) 175

I'm 45. I played Space Invaders in my local bowling alley when it came out - with my limited allowance. I was 10 (it took a while to get the midwest USA).

I hate pixel art. It reminds me of bad games. Why limit yourself to an outdated method?

Gameplay is king, but appearance is important.

Pixel art holds zero nostalgia for me. Give me something that looks good, and plays great, and I will buy it. Pixelated graphics do NOT look good.
