Description

Pixel art is a popular way to design a game and usually works extremely efficiently for any type of game. I, and another contender, who, is my opponent, may argue about this until the end of the living universe to figure this out.

Round 1

Pixel art is very easy to the eye, and allows you to focus more on content then anything else.

Pixel art is no longer a good idea.

It is like using the cheapest, lamest paint and expecting people to call your painting good, it just can be good for pixel art and that is usually only because of the game mechanics.

If you were a man with a pixel art body and I were a man with 2022 CGI top tier graphics, which man is your girlfriend going to leave you for?

Be honest. She would say you were a good idea until I came along.

This debate is metaphorically you trying to make gamers be a barely satisfied woman in a crap  with a guy who does the minimum required to say 'hi, I count as a functional graphics boyfriend.'

Go ahead, show us what your gaming girlfriend is dating in Round 2. Show us your pixel art glory.

Just be ready to be in tears by Round 3, because I will show every other graphics style and let the readers decide why every decent game moved away from mere pixel graphics.

If you want your game to barely sell and be deemed 0/5 stars visually, use pixel graphics in 2022.
