There has been plenty of discussion around the style of art used in the game, and many prefer the more true to life visualization of leaders used in V over VI's more caricature/cartoon style. I can sympathise, as I initially preferred Civ III's more realistic take on leaders over CIV's cartoony interpretation of them. What I'd like to know however; is why it's the visual look that counts for so much and not their animated implementation. As much as I like him, Keanu Reeves could act most of the CiV leaders with their wooden limited movements! Their personalities seem mostly flat and they don't move much no matter what is going down. After I played IV for a while I found the much more animated and alive leaders were far more engaging than their more realistic counterparts from III. I can already see the same engaging alive expressiveness in the new Civ VI leaders which I think is infinitely better than wooden portrayals no matter how realistic they look. Anytime I have discussed this on here or youtube, the consensus still seems to be very 'meh' towards the new leaders even if the initial hate is fading. Is there anyone else who like me loves the new leaders just due to the personality shining through?
