When will we get games that look impressive as Epic's Samaritan demo?

It was pretty atmospheric. I didn't like the Infiltrator demo. The lighting looked odd to me.

Take a clue from Killzone. Looks impressive, is and plays like mediocre ****.

There's more to games than having high resolutions and thousands of particle effects on screen at once.

Yes of course. But I wish to add, all the effects at 60 FPS at 1080p and above. There's no joy like a game running flawlessly at 60 FPS.

Because all developers become incompetent if they have pretty visuals amirite?

I mean, they call themselves the next-gen consoles, but 1080p at 60 FPS shoulda become the new minimum. It's not like they couldn't make the consoles capable of 1080p at 60 FPS. I was expecting the new consoles to give PCs a run for their money, but naah, PC still is the upper tier. Hope the PC ports are much better this time around.

Yeah, with the new consoles I don't even think better visuals should be a priority. If the games only looked like late gen 360 games, but ran at 1080p at 60FPS...that would be a massive improvement.

But you can't hype people up over something a lot of people pretend they can't see. You can however hype them up on pretty screenshots. Doesn't matter if that high res screenshot of AAA game of the month runs at barely 30FPS.

Great example is CoD. I don't give a **** about how the graphics look or that it's upscaled to 720p. They're serviceable and look fine. But it being 60FPS, on consoles no less, is a major factor in it's playability and overall success. Publishers and developers are always trying to chase that CoD player base and money, but don't seem to understand what actually makes CoD successful besides being a FPS, killstreaks, and perks.

The ''next-gen'' consoles look like just a minor GPU update. I'm not seeing anything new or interesting, all of it is the same old crap, like, they're not doing anything innovative with the camera peripherals. I hear the Kinect 2 is even registering things like coughs as pausing the game. The PS4 release felt so lackluster, there was no magic in it like in the old days. I just read that the Xbone is coming out this Friday, and I didn't even know that. It sucks to see consoles in this sorry state, fighting tooth and claw to outdo each other instead of grow independently and offer different experiences, especially since I grew up with them, but it's time to move on. This is what it means to be of the PC Master Race.

Isn't that right, Zach?
