Default Preferred Game Engine?

Mine is Unity, just because so many fantastic and varied games have been made with it, great performance, fantastic visuals.

UE3 games tend to have a sort of similar color scheme, I don't know how to describe it. They also tend to have more performance issues.

What game engines are you a fan of and which ones do you dislike?

UE3.

Most Unity games unfortunately come out looking like crap. Shame that such a good engine went to waste.

I think UE3 games having similar colour schemes is down to how well it does detailed, realistic-looking textures, prompting developers to go as realistic as possible and all opt for similar palettes. The likes of Enslaved and DmC on consoles show off more vibrant variations.

I can't say I hate Unity, but something about it always strikes me as cheap. Unless I'm forgetting something I'd say my favourite is probably Cocos2D/Box2D. I'm still a believer of most 3D engines being properly at home on PCs and consoles, despite the great 3D mobile games I've played.

They CAN look good; it depends on how talented the folks are making the game. Not just on iOS, but also browser based games that use the Unity plug-in.

Unity games do have the nasty habit of bleeding my batteries dry though.

While look is generally dictated by the developers themselves, I do find top tier Unity games to look crisper and having better contrast. But this again is developer driven.

Dark Meadow
Horn
ARC Squadron
Lili
Last Knight

Karateka
Wild Blood
Amazing Runner
