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 just got a new PC for $600. You don't need a 2000$ dollars PC to play newer games. I also used to play PWI, along with some older games. I can post my specs if you want.

And I had to get a job for that. Wasn't easy but I got sick of playing on a 10 yo PC.

I used to have an Inspiron 9200 back in 05 until about 09. Was a pretty good laptop or a Dell, dropped it a few times and it wouldn't even flinch. And it stayed pretty cool even under load. I just wish I had went with a better processor instead of the ****** 1.6ghz celeron D.

Getting a job at 16 is easier, because they can hire you at **** pay. People with qualifications actually find it harder to get a job. Because they are worth more money. More than one of my friends have been turned down jobs for being overqualified.

I know that feel. Sort of anyway. I have a desktop witha 620 graphics card and an i5 3450. And I have a friend who has an i5 3570k OC with a 660 ti. He mostly plays runescape, maplestory, and SOMETIMES actual games his computer was meant to handle, but rarely ever.

Did I mention the bastard has two ******* monitors as well?

I feel your pain I got a crappy vista inspiron desktop with Celeron inside.
I paid 3000$ ******* dollars for that thing and all I got were crappy graphic (n64 graphics are better) And you can't have more then 3 windows at a time or the computer crashes,slows down, freezes, etc.
And an old friend of mine was complaining that the graphics on his good reasonably priced laptop was awful Atleast he can play Wow without the game graphics glitching up.

A little late but I got it at rent a center where a high quality laptop costs
about oveer 4000$ dollars. I didn't have good enough credit to rent it.
So I had to save up money to buy it.
What I got in return was a lot less then I expected.
Well atleast I have fast internet and was able to boost the start up time but still.

Just because it looks nice doesn't mean it is. Take for instance, Minecraft & Terraria, and many of the rogue type and sandbox game out there, such as Cataclysm DDA. Hell, some flash games are better than high graphics games such as CoD.

Don't play PWE games. They're customer service is absolutely horrible.
I bought $20 of Zen for Blacklight through Steam and an error occurred on their side that didn't give me the zen. I argued for a week with their support about how it's their fault. They said it was steam, when steam had no errors occur. I even had the receipt for it. Steam couldn't even check if the zen was added, but PWE insisted that it was their fault.

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.

You know what's annoying? when people say they don't like a game because of the graphics and don't even give the game a chance. I had a friend who didn't want to play borderlands because as soon as he saw the graphics he was like "ehhh I can't play like this." It's not just the little kids who do this either, this friend of mine grew up around zelda and all the other classics. He's a hypocrite because he loved ocarina of time, even though the graphics were not on level with borderlands. He wouldn't even give the game a chance. Boderlands graphics are different, not ****** . They're supposed to be different. Just like the walking deads graphics. maybe it's just me, but what really matters in a game is gameplay and storyline...good graphics are just a plus.
User avatar #159 to #40 - Fgner (06/09/2013) [-]
Actually I understand not being able to play a game due to graphics in one condition:

* The graphics physically cause you problems.

For instance, I know many people who can't play games that don't let you turn off motion blur because they get really motion sick. Or can't play with cell shading because they get headaches for some reason. So sometimes there is a legitimate reason for not playing a game due to graphics.

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.

#204 to #147 - harleyzone (06/09/2013) [-]
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.

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.

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.
