Technology has given developers the ability to create extremely realistic looking environments. While gamers want and enjoy this, there are times when gamers simply want an escape from reality. Non-photorealistic graphics provide this escape. They also allow developers and artists to be more creative and artistic in their game designs. Nonphotorealism is a technique used to create worlds and environments that have a cartoon look and feel to them. Popular examples of this graphical effect are the Dark Cloud series, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and XIII.
