shinyness in games has been getting rediculous for a while. sometimes it makes sense a lot of times it just does not. Ill give some examples like a racing game, Having the cars be overly right-off-the-showroom floor shiny is okay in that type of game ide assume. Like Forza 2 and other racers. Having the ROAD be shiny... not needed.
the worst culprit ive ever seen in the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance for X-Box 360, Every person in that game was highly detailed but SHINY. to the point of glowing it was bad. Especially those that shouldnt be that shiny like iron man(who doesnt have a reflective costume), its okay if maybe iron man had a little more shine but captain america? moon night? they almost glowed it was bad. Especially in the cut scenes.
Aright my little rant is done.
Yes, but are roads not shiny? Near my place where there is a road with very heavy traffic, and where the wheels have gone over, the asphalt has been polished. If they did that, then the game would be a whole more realistic and I would applaud their attention to detail, but if the whole road was glowing then that's a bit overdone.
