Pretty game art

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft lately, and I have to say, the artwork in the Cataclysm expansion is phenomenal. Take a look at some of these screenshots I snapped last night.

And that’s with all the graphics turned off on my ancient computer, too.

So yes, that’s where I’ve been. Enjoying WoW and not doing anything remotely creative. :-p

  1. Warcraft (not just the MMO) has always had a “painterly” quality to its in-game art assets that I think a lot of games sort of copy now. I love that screenshots (even on lowest settings) can still look so nice. I remember when Burning Crusade first came out, I spent hours on walk just poking around Silvermoon City. That place is freaking Disneyland.


  2. We all need to step back and play sometimes. *coughs and points to new website link* That’s my game of the moment. *admires the screenshots* It’s flat out amazing how much time the game artists and programmers spend on stuff that most players probably just blur past, isn’t it?
