Yahtzee had me thinking of Deathloop and Redfall. And after a quick YouTube search, Dishonored 2.
I always thought Deathloop looked like an especially shitty game from a graphics standpoint, and Redfall elicited the same reaction from me. After this EP video, I think I was able to nail down why I had this reaction. Both games are this bizzare middle ground between the cartoonish art style and photorealistic graphics. The result is you get the worst of both worlds. Character models look silly and honestly just kind of low effort, like it was a first pass at 3D modeling. But then the game world also feels lifeless, when it's so disconnected from the entities living in it.
I had a look at some Dishonored 2 gameplay, and while I don't think it's as bad, I still got a small sense of the uncanny valley. I had to go all the way back to Dishonored 1 to get the feeling that the game's art style was consistent. And it's ironic, immersive sims would definitely benefit from dedicating less effort to graphics and instead just having even MORE stuff to do.
Admittedly, I've only played Dishonored 1, so take this with a grain of salt since I'm coming from a YouTube viewer's perspective.
