Bomberman. Thankfully, they went back to the old style.

Bomberman digivolved into an abomination.
It's not bomberman, but I think the designs are actually bitching.
Raven in the New 52 looked too stupid, they went back to the goth gf design in the new continuity.

Why does everyone hate this design? I dig it quite a bit. I like how you cant see her eyes and the whole Lavo's skull + literal raven thing going on.



As for redesigns I hated.... the one that comes to mind is from DOOM.

Really preferred 2016 doomguy. I think it was cooler that you couldn't see his face and the new arms look stupid.

Also we went from yakuza looking motherfuckers to brotherhood of the traveling pants between Versus and 15.

Can be anything. Cartoons, anime, toys, money, company logos, websites, etc.

I'll start.

Good quality, a lot of thought put into it. I loved these growing up. Colorful, lively. The pets had a nice texture to them. The site back then was also creative.

Then BOOM. They all look like they were exposed to a nuclear power plant. They feel as bad as they look. They are oily, plastic, and overall lower quality. It's like an identity crisis. Even if you were to collect them, I don't see the point anymore due to how bad the quality is. It looks & feels like a McDonald's toy. As for their website, it looks exactly like all the other "modern" websites out there.

DA has gone through a lot of redesigns but Eclipse was the most major one. It may look okay but DA forced it on its user's while it was still an unfinished, buggy mess. A LOT of members left. They removed the "new deviations" tab possibly due to how much porn took over. Not just fetish art, porn. Core membership has become borderline useless and has been forced on users who do commission work. HTML customization is no loner a thing. A lot has happened.

Those are the two I cared about the most.
Honorable mention would be Carebear's modern day designs compared to back then- it looks like shit but at least bootleggers haven't overtook the Carebear market when it comes to collecting the old merch like they did with LPS.
That LPS isnt the 1st generation, this is the 90s design:

This is an easy one, the late 2013-early 2014 "redesign" of Yahoo Answers (AKA The Purple Plague); Fortunately there was a time where if you used Internet Explorer 7 in particular, you could force the original interface to override the redesign (Not officially supported by Yahoo mind you), but eventually those spiteful dickwads @ Yahoo took down the cache or whatever that enabled that trick, and I never looked back; It's wild to think they're officially shut down now in 2021 *Pours out a 40 for my 40+ banned accounts*.

What were they thinking with this design?
View attachment 2141988
Oh jesus, they look like the grubhub ad

People talk about how slightly anime esque bean people have become the standard in 2D animation, but I think this Illumination-like style of incredibly simplified body and face designs combined with long gangly limbs that are easy to pose and manipulate are becoming the standard in 3D (see: the new addams family movie). And just like the calarts style it's a plague
Edit: fucking autocorrect

Not necessarily a redesign so much as a mascot replacement but I resent McDonald's executive decision to replace Ronald on account of the "scary street clown incidents of 2016" with THIS ABSOLUTE ABOMINATION:

original (1).jpg

Happy, the sentient McDonald's box who watches children eat food from his brethren. I have no idea why they thought this was less scary than a clown.

Thanks for making me feel old OP, your "old" littlest pet shop photos are my shitty redesign. When I was a kid they actually resembled animals and weren't neon colors:

I think I found some at a garage sale type dealie and I really liked them! They had like... really involved props, right?
feminist PPG reboot (you know the one where the writer self-inserted into a romance storyline with a primary school girl) removes woman's boobies.

View attachment 2141999
Ironically it would have made more sense the other way around. They actually chose to draw boobs on her before, in every single frame. Now that we have a computer that can just stick them on for us in most frames? Nah, chop them titties off.

It's cool looking. The fact that it's supposed to be a Bomberman character is what ruins it.

Here's nu-Vergil in a fedora. I do not feel motivated.

The fedora is removed in the Definitive edition. Sure, why not? Don't worry, Dante gets in on the fun. He looks like a heroin addict in the reboot.

I like to think he wears that ratty jacket to hide track marks.

Not sure what they do now, but for the most part they came with little playsets/props/environment! Here are some:

Mama cat with kittens, food, scratching post, etc:

Hamsters with cage and wheel. I think you could buy more pieces/a larger cage for these:

Baby tiger with zoo enclosure, there was a whole set of zoo animals:

Puppies:

Dog grooming set:

There were also bigger playsets you could buy that were a lot more involved like the Zoo and I think a Vet? I'm probably nostalgiafagging but I think they looked a lot better before the bug eye redesigns.

Didn't they revert the LPS design after like 2 generations because so many people were complaining?

I kinda enjoyed the slum dog look of Dante and virgil. Helped that the hat came off when shit went down.

The original's are better but DMC was charming in its own silly way. https://youtu.be/IItvFi-vdt4?t=204

This is an official arcade game in Japan, by the way.

Fucking hate how they did borderlands. It looked cooler when I read about it.

Remember when Pikachu was a fat shithead who hated Ash? I loved that fat rat bastard (though searching for an image of "fat Pikachu" leaves me with much regret..... (:_( )

I do think current day Pikachu is cute but the 90s kid I used to be yearns for Fatasschu.

the new Jewbook PC layout is criminally bad, slower and buggy as shit, it's as if they designed it for literal toddlers and they don't even allow people to switch back to the old version anymore. it's on me for using that piece of shit website, i suppose.
Spotify is awful as well, each update it looks closer to a bootleg version of the phone app. still just as slow if not worse.
it's like all internet big companies are doing this on purpose to drive me crazy. Instagram, which is also a good example of a logo getting shittier over time, why the fuck do you change the position of the dms every 2 months? who the fuck asks for this?
every time an app or a website i use gets worse i think about this Sam Hyde video where he describes all tech CEOs as fat pedophiles who collect dolls. it's the only explanation the more i think about it, really.
