Depending on the game style it allows you to portray an effect to the audience. Say for example a shooter game, you wouldn't have the graphics of call of duty in a 2D world, meanwhile you wouldn't have pac-man with the look and 3D view of call of duty. The developer can use these to effect the way the audience perceive the entertainment.
