not so much an idea as a videogame Thought, but: Cartoons and visual art in general make a big deal out of using less, being representative instead of reproductive... like instead of a house's bricks all being drawn, you do a handful around the corners of things where shade would highlight them and consider it enough.
the closest I've heard of in videogames is a discussion of how Portal works, they said games use darkness and light to guide players through "open worlds" where an obvious navigation makes no sense. but I'm sure there are ways other than'darkness' to visually represent less detail, so what if you just did that on purpose. as the player gets outside the narrative, there's less anything, and they can easily look around and figure out where the things they're supposed to see are.

I get this so often that I'm inured to it, but honestly it really bugs me and makes me feel terrible because it's clear people don't understand how difficult having prosopagnosia can actually be.
Not recognizing people has INCREDIBLE impacts on social interactions. Not "Oh yeah, I remember you!" It's "Why are you ignoring me and giving me the cold shoulder?" from the other person towards me. Not realizing it's because I have no idea who they are.
