different era, different standard   
   
It is not about graphics, but immersion breakers. more of modern game's get so rushed and bugs that break immersion like fall trough walls, 1 guy who have no lipsynch while all others have ect

at the time though games like doom or grimm fandango were puching the limits of what could be done, they were REALLY the best graphics that people could make with graphics at the time,
people can make amazing grapihcs now, nearly perfect (don't believe me look up mods for games like skyrim) and yet developers are rushed with ridiculous time constraints and have to put out a sub par product. look at how many "round" things in ac-3 were actually just octagons, and how in some parts of a game a level or cutscene may look amazing and perfect while another glitches and clips and is just full of angles.

newer games look better than back then, but they don't push the limits to the same extent by a longshot.

actually no one has to spend much money on gaming when you realize how old games were actually more fun.
except for online games maybe, but we have quake and unreal tournament in that section.

Back in my day, I hated graphics. now kids these days hate grapics that look like real life

I thought this was going to go a different way. From when some games blatantly had one linear path from start to finish being then, and the now being where it can sometime take the better part of an hour just trying to figure out where the stairs to get to the next part are.

Lol you people almost don't even have a right to complain about graphics in any sort of way when minecraft is considered good.

I had a friend over and we were playing Dishonored. He said he didn't like the game because he "couldn't get over the graphics." I then had to explain to him that it was a stylized game and they tried to make it look like that.

This game is the tits though.

My buddy is like that about Borderlands and Borderlands 2. He's seen me log hours of gameplay in it, and he just won't touch it because of the art style.
User avatar #211 to #176 - bobthedilder (06/09/2013) [-]
Dishonored's the hypest **** , played through it 5 times. Last game I went through that many times was MGS4.

I hear ya. They showed and said you could do all of this fancy stuff. You start up the game and it turns out you're essentially a walking pissed off assassin god.

Dishonor doesnt sit well with me.

Because i suck at stealth.

You could just straight up ****** the **** out of everything though.

But thats too fun too chaotic gets me the baaad ending.

Punch him in the face ! Dishonored is one of the more stylish games out there.

I just finished playing Call of Duty 2. Two things struck me. How hard the game is for a COD game. Playing COD 2 on Normal is like playing modern COD on Hardened.

Second. How the games graphics have only gotten slightly better since then. Its the same graphics base as COD 2. Just polished up a little bit.

Used to play CoD4 like that a few years back. Switching to 1024x768 and ultimately to 1680x1050 was the biggest change of my live. srs.
User avatar #164 - navywannabe (06/09/2013) [-]
What games are these? I want to say the first one looks like Duke Nukem. But I've been wrong before. I guessing the second one is some kind of Call of Duty.
#165 to #164 - eatinpizza (06/09/2013) [-]
Firstt one is Doom, second is some COD.

Modern game graphics dont suck because of any low detailed **** . It's because developers use today's amount of processing power on adding unecessary lens flare and stupid unrealistic color filters that block everything you should be able to see normally. Every modern graphical feature like pretty much everything "OMG DX11 TESSELATION AWESOME **** " is just a gimmick played for developers and hardware manufacturers to leech money.

tl;dr: most new games after 2011 are a lost cause, graphics wise.
#158 - drunkasaurus (06/09/2013) [-]
Myst had good graphics before it was cool. Although they do kind of look like **** now...
User avatar #168 to #158 - deliciousjoecocker (06/09/2013) [-]
I need help. I tried playing myst but got completely lost for 20 minutes, didn't know where to go or what to do and then got incredibly bored and shut it off. I like old games and I usually have quite a lot of patience, but I just couldn't be bothered to play on. Is there something with me?
User avatar #170 to #168 - drunkasaurus (06/09/2013) [-]
Myst is extremely difficult, and I don't know a single person that figured it out by themselves. It was meant to be played socially, with a lot of people helping you solve it. Luckily we have the internet now, so don't feel bad if you need to use a guide for some parts, I used one quite a few times, and they eventually built in a guide in some of the console versions, but the game is more rewarding if you try to use a guide as little as possible. Anyways, to get started, you need to turn on all the marker switches, figure out the tower rotation, and read some of the books in the library.
User avatar #178 to #170 - deliciousjoecocker (06/09/2013) [-]
Thanls for the advice. I'd definetly try it again now that I've got some direction.
#166 to #158 - anonymous (06/09/2013) [-]
Myst still looks about 10X better than any games that were made in that era. Phenomenal game.
User avatar #154 - derangedberger ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
I look at graphics in comparison to the time when the game came out.
If a game looks better than most games that came out around the same time, I think the graphics are good.
#153 - anonymous (06/09/2013) [-]
Doom graphics where revolutionary back in the day, COD graphics are crap even compared to standards of 3 years and more ago. So yes the above graphics are good and the lower aren't because they came from a different ******* time, you ain't gonna compare a trebuchet against a howitzer either. Even if the howitzer is crap compared to another howitzer it will still beat a trebuchet that was state of the art back in the middle ages. Can't compare apples and potatoes can you?
User avatar #156 to #153 - derangedberger ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
Cod isn't crap, it just isn't up to standard.
I don't like to admit it, but it looks pretty good.

I care little for graphics. If a game like Final Fantasy 7 or System Shock 2 came out today, I'd play the **** out of them.

Videogames are a new medium for evocative storytelling. We are still exploring how to optimise them graphically and sound-wise. Regardless, the greatest successes are those that focus on the new things gaming brings to the table, rather than what other art forms can already do.

< Thief: The Dark Project, most atmospheric game I've played.

graphics are the typing font and paper of a game's storytelling.
many games don't have the best graphics, but they are stylized in such a way that we love them (mario, psychonauts, zelda) it's an old font, but you don't want it changed, sure the declaration is hard to read, but would it be the same typed in times new roman on A4 paper?

many new videogames try to look like something fancy and cool but cut so many corners that it ends up feeling like someone trying to write shakespeare on a paper bag with a crayon,

the story can be the best in the world, but do you really want to read it like that? that's part of why I'm sick of Assassins creed, one scene graphics are amazing (look at the theater bit from the beginning of AC3) and some are **** (any bar in AC3) I just can't stand the inconsistancy, plus how sometimes when you kill someone they stretch out and shoot in all directions. I don't remember doom or mario having that problem.

There's so many grammatical errors with that "Sentance", I'm not even going to try fixing it.

I don't really care how realistic the graphics in a game is. As long as it looks nice!
