We could argue that the problem is based around developers trying to do something different and bringing video games more close to the experience of watching a cinematic film but at times the effects are poor and overdone. So what games are guilty of this? Check out the entire list below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below the article.

Fallout 3: Color Filtering
Color filtering is an effect that overlays a particular color shade. The effect can bring in a gloomy overtone or brighten up landscapes but for video games like Fallout 3, it’s a mood killer. Fallout 3 had a color filter that made everything look like a green smog or worst a diluted shade of yellow. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the Fallout series especially Fallout 3. However, this effect wasn’t very appealing which ultimately left a community of video game modders to develop ways to remove the filter completely.
