im going to vote for cave story too, id forgotten about that one.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Cave story? Bad physics and retro graphics? What can we learn from that?

I think the game has both good and bad graphics. It kind of shows the development of Pixel as a pixel artist over the course of his five year development time working on Cave Story.
I'm not much of an artist, but please trust me when I criticize your hard work.

Cave Story is, indeed, a great game. However, the graphics are nothing to write home about.

I guess I ought to save any rants for later.

Then we can pick at what we do and don't like. What could be better & what is done well, etc. I think it's a good choice so that, unlike some commercial critiques, we (less hawkeyed artists) can actually critique it rather than just gawk while people like you, Monsoon, and Helm and the other madly skilled people on this forum pick it apart like vultures... -_-'

cave story wasnt a beautiful amazing looking game, but it had nice clean graphics that got the job done, a few things seemed really strange to me at first but I got used to it and how its done.

its not like all these critique topics have to be about complete works of art like others have already mentioned too
