What does "next generation" mean to you as a PC gamer?

#1anthrax360xPosted 8/29/2013 4:02:35 PM
I was just curious, as each time a new generation of consoles come out there is generally one or a few buzzwords to get people's attention (2D - 3D, SD - HD, 8 bit - 16 bit). This year it seems to be along the lines of "networking" and "social 'innovation'" and I don't see that truly affecting the game all that much...

Do you think, however, with this new generation not having as much of the graphical/technological buzzword, developers will finally have to consider doing things like improving gameplay (through level design, AI, etc) since they can't really wow us (as PC gamers) with fancy new graphics since we have been seeing far better than console quality for many many years now?

I just wanted to hear people's opinions on what they think this "next generation" will truly do to change the way we play our video games.

All it means to me is that my games won't be held back by console's quite as badly as they are now, but they will still be the weakest link by a long shot

Bah, games being held back is the mentality of AAA games marketted towards the masses. PC or consoles, it matters litttle. Where the masses goes, dumb games will be. We might just avoid some of the dumber aspects like "we can't have more than 1 ability 'cause 360 has 512 mb of ram", and get slightly better graphics (which matters not at all). But the rest hardly will change for it.

Technologically superior games and better ports.

I'm hoping it means more Games and less Hallway Storybook QTE Cinema.




My hopes will crash and burn.
