Mental Checkpoint showed why visual effects are important in gameplay.
There's no need to explain that visual effects are important for games. It's hard to imagine a good game without colorful explosions, sparkles, or fire. But why exactly is it so crucial? Mental Checkpoint tried to answer this question.
In the video, the author explains the purpose of VFX, compares them in movies and games, and talks about what it takes to become a VFX artist. They also discuss core attributes of visual effects: shape, contrast, color, timing, and relatability.
Mental Checkpoint also provides practical examples of the VFX importance, showing what too few and too many visual effects do to players' perception and how the choice of VFX benefits (or harms) the gameplay.
