          Also, and this is a legitimate answer - games no longer come with instruction manuals. Without the instruction manuals to tutorialize everything in the game like controls, developers are stuck putting all that shit into the actual game itself.

          That's why basically every game starts with a 5-10 minute tutorial sequence where it says USE WASD TO MOVE AND USE YOUR MOUSE TO MOVE THE CAMERA! SPACE IS TO JUMP AND CTRL LETS YOU CROUCH!

          This anon gave a really good answer, there's also some additional stuff too

          >1.Hi-fidelity graphics have made designers/developers get lazy with world design
          The emphasis on realism for the sake of it on every game asset leads to a loss of clarity if you don't have artists, or a "director" who knows how to frame and arrange those elements so their interactive hierarchy is readable in an intuitive way.

          >2.The emphasis of high context actions and automation in games
          This later one is the worst, and is a huge reason for this.
          In a game like BotW you can climb anywhere so the player doesn't get confused over stuff like "can I climb to get around this obstacle" it's a mechanic that is always freely at their disposal.
          In games like TLOU or Unchartered climbing is a highly contextual action that can only happen in certain areas. This not only makes it more confusing for the player to know when they can climb or not, but it turns climbing from an engaging tool in the player's arsenal to what is essentially just an automatic QTE.

          Games in the late 7th gen shifted from giving players tools they can freely use to giving them more high context actions, which are essentially just "press/hold button to watch animations play out"
          Another example of this is the way Assassin's Creed freerunning mechanic changed throughout the games, going from a deliberate and somewhat challenging gameplay process to happening automatically.

      Mirror's Edge hand-holding is still offensive, but the coloration works because the color palette of the game is extremely heavy in whites, blues, and yellows, which make the world around you seem very sterile and corporate. The brief flashes of red always imply "action", and don't specifically need to be fed to you for them to be a guiding point for setpieces that might not be as blatant as running through a hallway.

      1. Mirror's Edge has a hard mode that turns all of that off so really anything you say is moot because it is not like you can turn off yellow paint/tape in any modern game
      2. While it is a bit out of place, the game's graphical style of bold colors against white backgrounds made them at least look interesting. It is not a realistic world with realistic graphics. It is very stylized. It is not like RE4 where they used the most realistic graphical fidelity they could and then had people put yellow tape everywhere
      3. They made an in-universe explanation of it as Faith's "Runner Vision" which is her natural instincts at being a runner and noticing things she can use for parkour. Not a great excuse, but at least you don't have to imagine some spanish guy whose job it is to go around putting tape on every box and paint on every ladder

      Honestly, I didn't really like the decision to make everything red, but it is okay because they added a difficulty that disabled it.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I'm going to simplify this as much as possible.

      Red is a representation of runner vision. Faith is so experienced that she is able to see pathways where most people just see random objects. It's diegetic and helps you get into Faith's head. Nobody playing the game thinks that those objects are actually painted red.

      This is just like nobody thinks there is actually a floating health bar above anyone's head in games that have those. That is an representation to display information that the character you're controlling is able to tell, but that isn't obvious to the player. Most of the time it's too much work to show characters taking visible damage and it's too hard for the player to notice in the heat of battle, so instead healthbars communicate information that the character they're playing as should know.

      Fundamentally these are all examples of 'detective vision', a mechanic which is disliked because it's the most lazy method, but it still fundamentally gets the job done by showing you what the character you're controlling is able to observe and deduct about the world around them.

      In games with yellow paint, someone actually physically dipped a paintbrush into a bucket of yellow paint and walked around the entire game world spreading yellow paint on climbable/breakable objects. This is canon. This is something that actually physically happened in the setting. And it's a fricking moronic premise.

      If you do not understand the difference between yellow paint and detective vision, then you are unironically too low-iq for video games, or any medium that requires you to understand perspective or internal consistency. You are incapable of immersing yourself in a setting. You are incapable of understanding that you are controlling a character in a game, that it isn't literally you. You are actually clinically moronic.

          >"this place isn't exactly like reality"
          >"that means that anything can happen"
          Pic related. That is what you sound like. If you aren't willing to (or unable to) engage with an argument for internal consistency then your opinion matters as much as a moronic child's. You aren't willing to entertain a world where it's easier to climb things as something you can be immersed in so why should anyone take your opinion seriously regarding anything else in the game?

    Why are gamers such midwits? Finding what elements in the artificial environment are arbitrarily able to be interacted with is not a puzzle. Rather than interacting with every single door, ladder, object, and ledge to see which are the select few you can interact with, yellow paint or a map marker can save the tedium of manually testing everything through trial and error.

    • 2 weeks ago

      Even if devs think that players absolutely must not be lost, there are various techniques to solve this issue that better than yellow pain that doesn't mesh with the environment. There's no excuse to not either have a dedicated "point me" button or to be able to toggle stuff like yellow paint in the menu. Even the original FF VII had something to show you were entrances/exits/ladders/you were and it but summoned and sent away at the press of a button.

        It's just not a big deal. Rather than asking why there's yellow paint, ask why the only way to proceed in this on-rails game is up this massive wall with a conveniently created path of hand grips. The whole thing already feels artificial and corny even without the paint.

        But on a related note, is wandering aimlessly for which piece of the environment you can interact with to take the single designated path something that brainlets actually consider challenging or rewarding?

          Unless the game is poorly designed, you generally don't need to wander aimlessly to figure out what you can interact with. If you need someone to paint a big yellow X under something for you, you're the brainlet.

            But you can't climb the chest-high ledge, or open this door for some reason, or climb the ladder, or interact with an object.

            It's just the illusion of an open, dynamic world when in reality it's all window dressing and you need to use trial and error to figure out which specific element can actually be interacted with.

            Your only reason for thinking you can interact with those ledges is because it looks so gamey and artificial that the only reason it would likely exist is as some contrived path for the player.

              Or because the games lead you to them through cues such as camera angles or environmental cues. Devs have created better solutions to this problem 2+ decades ago. At least you haven't argued why it shouldn't be optional.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I'd argue it's less a matter of feeling special for finding out you can climb up a ledge, and rather using better context cues to suggest to the player that you can, in fact, climb up the ledge without nonsensical yellow paint smears to guide you. Some games simply have the rock formations jut out in a way that suggests that a human SHOULD be able to climb it, or maybe just making normal non-climbable walls very obviously non-climbable surfaces, but the climbable ones stand out by being arranged such to look like they can be climbed. Other JRPGs have had to convey far more complex concepts with far less visual room to express them.

        I don't care about gamification, I just want it to match the world. Mirror's Edge is a good example of that. Another one is Dead Space. Yeah, it's an obvious blue line, but at least it matches the aesthetic. Splashing yellow paint all over the world is a very crude way to solve a problem.

        i don't play or interact with new games too much, but i thought the problem with it was that it's trying to be less gamey and more realistic by avoiding the need for outlines or other types of "invasive" UI things that would "break the immersion" by breaking the immersion even harder because it's moronic to have yellow paint on random shit like that
