PS2 is too colorful. It needs modern art direction.


It needs more of a modern art direction:

Before



After




Improved cinematic contrast:

Too much grey in your example, needs more brown.

Hmm I respectfully disagree. The colors are pretty, and look way better than unsaturated poopy.

The first picture is literally better in every way imo haha.

So do we pick our fav pic? In that case, the 'before' shot looks better to me. The 'after' has that stupid lens flare effect, seems washed out and generally not that appealing, to me.

Re: PS2 is too colorful.


Absolutely not. Ive had enough of bland looking modern shooters thank you. The colour in these environment is exactly what makes them stand out. We are starved of colour in games these days.. why?! Do you walk into a forest in the sunshine and see watered down sepia colours like the above? In the desert is the sand a dull brown or a rich multi tonal batch of yellows, reds, browns and oranges contrasted with deep blue skies? It's ok for colours to be muted in low light conditions or heavy cloud cover, but if the skies are blue, then the colours need to be vivid. It just isn't realistic any other way.

Also, human eyes dont have lens flare.

Here's a photo of what similar environments look in the real world...
