Fill out this quick survey to determine which art style that new Pacman games will have.

I'm leaning towards B, it fits the series better, and A and C are plain stupid. D could work if Tim Burton started making games though.

All of them are pretty sweet, but I like C and D the best. Unfortunately, I don't have a Facebook either, and cannot vote my opinion.

Tim Burton would never work with Pacman as it lacks musical bits and Johnny Depp.

I'd be fine with either A or B, A since its 3D, and B since it looks more like real pacman. I dont like C, it looks too cartoonish, like a Saturday morning cartoon show of Pacman, and that just sounds horrible. Definitely not D, looks a little too realistic

I hate the designs for all of the ghosts, but the B option for Pac-Man has a really cool retro feel to it. I'd go with that one if I had to.

- In the first one he's breaking the forth wall
- In the second one he's looking pretty badass
- In the third one he looks like sonic
- And in the forth one, he's smiling for no reason

So I say the second one.

It's good to also mention that not only are you choosing the art style, but you're also choosing the persona for PacMan, so choose wisely!

I agree that D looks like Tim Burton got Pac-Man and was like "AH YEAH!". But A looks like B but in 3-D and the last Time I saw Pac-Man in 3-D it was horrible and A looks pretty good so I'm voting for A.

A) doesn't look like Pacman's style and reminds me too much of Sonic's many edgy smiles. I would pick A but Pacmans design doesn't suit his silent hero personality. Even if they make him talk like I said his design reminds me too much of sonic they need to pull it back a bit.

B) Is perfect because it's his original design and Pac-man looks and feels like Pac-Man the simple humble hero, so I voted for B.

C) Too childlike.

D) If the colors weren't dull and looked more comic book style it could probably work.

Voted on this yesterday, D is by far my favorite but C isn't too bad. I don't like A or B at all.
If D wins and this is for in game graphics and not just them hanging out on the game game border I'll buy this for art style alone.

I actually like all four. But A would make the most sense if that Pacman CGI series ever gets greenlit.

B all the way. It's just the right amount of retro and modern.

I voted C, though I prefer the ghosts in D. Either of those would be a pretty great departure from the usual Pac Man art style.

A doesn't deserve to live btw.

In A and C, he looks like Sonic and is trying too hard to impress. In the forth, he's not trying hard to do anything, in fact it looks like he's taking a stroll in the park and doesn't care what others think of him. So I choose B because it's the only one where he's not smiling, and actually looks like he has some serious earth-threatening issue he has to take care of. (Unlike the other three.)

First off I meant to say the other 2 so my bad.

Second okay you explained your preference but you haven't explained why you think one out of three are smiling for no reason. Maybe that's not what you meant.

What I mean is that in the forth it looks like he's taking a stroll through a park, but in the other two he seems very self aware that there's a camera watching him. Like in two of them, he's an arrogant and cocky Sonic the Hedgehog, but in the forth one he's a personification of ignorant bliss, taking a stroll in a forest during a beautiful evening with three scccaary ghosts behind him. Personally I prefer the forth over those two, because I prefer that personality.

I guess to sum it up
- Arrogant, cocky, possibly a malignant narcissist
- Youthful old man who's minding his own business.

Sorry, I understand what you mean now. In D, he's just smiling to himself, but in A and C, he's smiling to the camera. My reference to Sonic the Hedgehog is because he always seems to be aware that there's a camera watching him, and thus never has a genuine smile, unlike the forth.
