okay so we've come a long way graphically in gaming. crysis, ratchet and clank tools of destruction, uncharted 2, okami, killzone 2 all praised for their graphics. when you want to prove your PC's worth you run crysis with it's extreme jungle beauty, despite there being games harder to run on PCs. seriously you ever try to run GTA4 on high on a PC? don't.
anyway being 14 i missed the age of 2D gaming, but i still love the 2D games. hell sonic 2 was my first game. so now that we're so far ahead in graphics, why is it that the one thing i want from a 2D game still hasn't been produced! what is it that i want? a moving cartoon. i want it to be fluid, i want it to be moving seamlessly, but so far i haven't seen that! look at street fighter turbo HD remix remaster championship ultra rare super collector's limited edition, all the sprites are beautiful, but they move like street fighter II! they smoothed it out some but it still looks chunky and very 1992-ish.
the closest thing to what i want is shank, and even shank looks a little...off. like the parts just kinda slide around, like someone screwed them together and left the screws loose. i don't know maybe it's because the backgrounds don't move it just seems...weird to me. but that's from the 09 trailer i haven't seen much of it since.
hopefully, this fully realized cartoon 2D game will appear some time, but so far i haven't seen anything like it.
