define "low poly" in a /vr/ context.
what are some high poly /vr/ games?

to me, it seems like all 3d /vr/ games get categorically referred to as low poly. it seems like a redundant term.

Depending on your criteria, it could technically be some demoscene production that uses shaders and other tricks to render a whole scene with ridiculously low poly count (it's possible to do with just 1 quad / tri.)

It warps and jitters happily like every other PS1 title, the distant camera placement and constant moment just make it less obvious.
Fantastic game, but the checkpoint system meant it was never for normies.

I'm sure there's an oxymoron somewhere in there. There isn't much you can do to improve the appearance of low-polygon graphics, except maybe to apply some convincingly high-detail textures to them.

That said, I always appreciated King's Field for its dark, muddy atmosphere. The games were also notable for having seemless environments with no (visible) load times. Actually, the load times were just masked by connecting regions through lengthy corridors.

Low poly is all about:
1. object silhouette
2. quality & style of the textures(also best with a limited palette)
3. even texel distribution over available UV space

>even texel distribution over available UV space
Unless I'm misinterpreting you, certain games like pic related would assign more density to key areas to give them more detail relative to the rest of the model. Like how here the face is given more space on the UV map compared to something physically larger like the chest.

Yeah, but that is sub optimal and just produces more shimmering on hardware that does linear interpolation without any form of mip mapping. On top it looks off having shaper parts and then a lot of blockier areas.

Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox are capable of "high poly" graphics. Usually when people refer to "low poly" they're talking about early 3D like PS1, N64, Saturn, and earlier.

Only 328 triangles. That's a very nice work.
