Mwf i'm poor college-student with a ****** Dell laptop which has integrated videocard and can play only PWI and others low-tier games. My friend, who has a 2000$ gaming-desktop rages that tomb rider and skyrim are bad and goes back to runescape..

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.

At least the demons of Doom and Doom 2 were actually scary and the "violence" was violent in contrast to almost every other game nowadays.
Still living and twitching men impaled on spikes?
Ripped open corpses with stuff hanging out everywhere you look?
Walls made of dead humans and skin?
Entire oceans of blood?
Monsters cut together from dead and/or mutated humans?
A large walking cybertech brain on spiderlegs?
Every monster dieing in a real bloody death scene?
After almost 20 years, every Doom player can still remember the sound the Cyberdemons stomp does while running after you with his goddamn goddamn missle launcher. Bomk. Bomk. Bomk...
Compared to this, todays games are for 8 year olds.

Half of the games on steam are 2D platformers or 8bit. They're even selling indie tower defense games and it's making a killing with sales. Stop whining, OP.

In the end if the gameplay and storyline are good I don't give a **** what the graphics are like but its always nice to have great graphics with an amazing game. Look at all the classic games everyone still loves, people still go back to pokemon and supermario even the old ass 8bit version.

Care too much about the graphics and the game developers won't care as much for story and gameplay. Its not about what looks the best, its about how it plays.

TL; DR I'm the 12 year old that ****** your mum, faggot.

I grew up playing this artillery game, Galaga, Eliter: Frontier, Doom, Quake and other extremely entertaining games. Comparing the graphics between the two, sure Doom/Quake sucks, but god damn are they fun to play. CoD, BF, etc. get rather dull after a while.

I claim the same reason that ASCII graphics are equally entertaining. It leaves you mind to imagine stuff, which makes it even better. I think this is why games like Terraria and Minecraft are popular.

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.

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.

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.

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

Does anyone here know anything about the new chip coming out for computers and laptops?
User avatar #24 to #19 - sedativechunk (06/09/2013) [-]
Yes. They are out now as of the past few weeks. Intel released their Haswell line of CPU's. Surprisingly the Haswell so far has been a disappointing CPU for gamers/overclockers (like myself). It's only about a 10% performance gain over the previous generation Ivy bridge chipset. To make matters worse, the chip uses a new socket so users would also have to upgrade their motherboard. The Haswell improvements shine more on laptops than for hardcore desktop computers this time around.

AMD just released the FM socket A-series CPUs. The FM socket is a chipset with a higher-end integrated graphics chip. Surprisingly it performs better than some of the first-gen Intel i series. The AMD A-Series is best suited for those who want a portable computer and/or home entertainment system out of a computer. They are cost effective and powerful. I personally own the AM3+ socket FX-8350 by AMD. it's currently their latest high end CPU out, and mine is overclocked to 5.1Ghz on a water cooling loop.
