Does anyone else refuse to watch/see any doom eternal content to go into it blind?

Now it's such a mess that new games need to have highlighted ledges or some kind of 'warning' tape plastered to let you know they're interactive. This makes me aware that the rest is just decoration.

Now it's like 80% is non-interactive decoration and you see right through it because everything interactive pops out.

 

Sign posting has always been a thing in video games, its nothing new that was created by filthy uncreative level designers from the modern era

I guess i should be mad that i can't go to the mountains in Doom 1's skybox since it obviosuly just there for decoration...

 

when I enter a forest in Tomb Raider or Uncharted, i expect to see trees, vines and lots of vegetation, when I enter a canyon in Horizon Zero Dawn, I expect to have lots of cliffs, ledges and Ravines

Decorations are a necessity to keeping the world believable, even Classic Doom had useless decorations littered to sell the world...  but i also need to know which part of the world is usable and which is not or i fall to my death. 

 

But Anyway, Welcome to 2019, I Hope you enjoy your stay...

The strength of these simple looking games was that everything in them was real. Like: if there's a ledge, it's not just a decoration, it's a ledge and you can probably jump on it. Now it's such a mess that new games need to have highlighted ledges or some kind of 'warning' tape plastered to let you know they're interactive. This makes me aware that the rest is just decoration. That's one of many reasons I prefer simple 'ugly' old games. Like in original Tomb Raiders - blocky as hell, but you could hand to ANY ledge, the ENTIRE level was playable. Now it's like 80% is non-interactive decoration and you see right through it because everything interactive pops out.

 

But that's just me.

 

Luckily you there are also great games out there like Amid Evil and DUSK that bring back that great retro style without the current generation graphics.
