The one that I remember someone pointing out is Donald's outfit from Kingdom Hearts.



It doesn't look that bad at first, but on closer inspection, you ask yourself "Why does Donald have a zipper on his hat?"

And a belt. Is it part of the hat even?

To Japanese designers, zippers and belts are just another decorative feature.

Is it like one of those bags that you can put together and take apart made of zippers? So if he had two he could make an even bigger hat?

I'd like to note that Nomura did alot of people watching but he did so in the Harajuku district of all places, so he saw these insanely wild and not exactly smart fashion designs walking around. Suprise suprise, he made a shitload of equally ugly and confusing designs for years. Since that fashion style is basically dead, he seems to have calmed down a bit?

I assume he means this the needlessly complex and at times incomprehensible designs of things like Transformers, but I don't know of a game that actually pulls that off to nearly the same effect.

I mean, you have to have stuff on your thing, or it's not really a design, just shapes.

Initially, because simple solids composed of flat panes are somewhat visually boring. Then because the technology isn't good enough to render true realism but sticking to simplified forms can't show off its power very well, so you substitute motion and detail for form and precision. Then, apparently, because people are easily impressed by pure visual noise.

I can't think of TOO many games that fall deep into that trap though; sci-fi games sometimes have a problem with vehicles and weapons that are just a mess of vertices vomit, and I can think of a few games like Prototype or the (apparently incredible) Prey reboot where some of the creature designs are just visual nonsense.

Mostly being jokey here, admittedly. Art direction matters and simple forms can accomplish a lot, but you're not wrong that detailing is important. There's just a certain school of thought that takes it to such a ridiculous extreme it's hard to tell what you're even looking at.

The creatures in Prey being bizarre and pretty incomprehensible is completely intentional, and during actual gameplay the designs work out really well. You can usually tell at a glance exactly what kind of alien you're looking at, but what exactly it is is another question. I think that in the grand scheme of things they're some of the cooler sci-fi aliens because they really don't look like anything on earth.

It at least mostly works in Prey and Prototype yeah (and sorry for writing Dishonored there initially, was still waking up), but when reaching for examples in videogames, there weren't many that came to mind, so I grabbed the couple I could. I honestly can't think of many games where the creature design is a serious problem in that way, and I probably shouldn't have presented those as such.
