Whats happening with Crytek is a perfect example of what happens...

When you abandon your fanbase that put you famous. Crysis was THE PC game when it came out and held the graphics crown for more years than just about any game ever. Crysis what a real testament to us PC gamers as it was clearly made with only the PC in mind and did not have any limits in scope because of that. Us Crysis fans were salivating for a new crysis to see another AMAZING cutting edge PC game that had the open world gameplay that made Crysis so great to play. The they announced Crysis 2 would be on consoles as well.................... that's where they screwed up. because of the switch from PC exclusive to multiplatform limited the scope of the game. Result was Crysis 2 which was the biggest disappointment of the decade. It may take the top spot for a game that degraded soooooo badly going from first game to second game. It became a COD clone instead of the amazing open world and varied gameplay.

So of course by Crysis 3 we did not trust them anymore. plain and simple... we saw it was once again on the ancient ass consoles therefore limited. I eventually did pick up Crysis 3 but only when i found it on sale for 7.50.

Now imagine if Crysis 2 follwed in Crysis footsteps! It would have sold TONS. I say this because between Crysis 1 and Crysis 2's release dates the PC gaming market exploded. if crysis 2 was a PC exclusive up to the first games standards then Crysis 3 would have sold even more yet because by the time 3 came out the PC gaming market really exploded.

Also the funny thing is Crysis 1 is partly responsible for the increased popularity for PC gaming by showing just how dated the current gens hardware really was which pushed many people to game on the PC.

Shows it never pays to betray your true fans!

I hear people echo off of each other about crysis being a tech demo. What are they basing this off of? Crysis 1 is a fine game and Crysis 2 & 3's mediocre graphics would make a lousy tech demo.

Crysis was a very good game IMO. easily 9/10 in my book. Crysis 2 was more 4.5/10 literally IMO. Crysis 3 was a solid 7/10 but too little to late.

Can you please explain to me what was remotely good about the original Crysis? I mean other than being a tech demo showing off the power of the PC. I want to know what made it a half way decent GAME.

maybe that it was a lot of fun? what makes a game good? surely not the amount of entertainment one gets out of it... no, that would be blasphemy. and i'm willing to be there was NO ONE who enjoyed playing crysis 1. probably not one person.

based on your statement, any rational explanation will likely fall on deaf ears. You've already made up your mind.

Have you even played it? Probably not since you're a console gamer. It was a great game. It didn't just have graphics, it had physics and new gameplay concepts.
