Am I the only one who doesn’t love the graphical style they’ve been using for DBZ games since the Xbox 360/PS3 era? I think it’s something about the lighting. Instead of trying to make the games look more like the anime/manga (which is something that I love about all those Naruto fighting games), it seems like they try to use anime-specific character models and then put in some kind of semi-realistic lighting. It looks really jarring.

I kinda... think I prefer the graphics from the PS2/Wii games? Okay, I guess now I’m just sounding crazy.
