When I was younger I had friends that played all the Zelda games but when they heard Zelda Windwaker coming out they rejected it just cause it looked more cartoon-like. We was in our early teens and looking tough as males was priority number one.
I'm interested to know as i've never been turned off fully by the art style of a game but im curious to know if it degraded your experience in anyway?
The only game i can think of being is call of duty, i didnt like all the brown/gray colours lookingh too bland. Even then i Enjoyed the gameplay somewhat.
