Graphics are important but not close to being the most important for me. Some of my favorite games aren't even close to being the best looking games around. I understand what you're saying about it being next gen and has to look better than that. Maybe everyone should wait for the actual game to come out before judging it based on a gif or a small trailer has it been confirmed that the footage is from a next gen console?
But this is such a major drop off, that it's worth talking about. If that gif on page 1 holds to be correct - do you think that looks next gen? Be honest.
That "new" downgraded footage - a Playstation Vita could produce that quality. Surely you know I'm not joking. GTA V should not look better than Watch Dogs on the Playstation 4.
I still think the game's actual gameplay looks prime to be boring.
The fuss over graphics is pretty laughable, was it even confirmed that was a next-gen version of the game? And even so, so the hell what? I recall some people saying Stick of Truth would be shitty because they tried to make it look like the cartoon (like most licensed games) and it's become a GOTY contender.
Nope, and I highly doubt that's what the final product looks like.
I have been baptized twice. Once in water, once in flame.
tbf, that could be on PC with the graphics on low and using a Xbox controller.
Too bad the game looked like complete shit at max settings. The HUD for the Titans was a sprite, for Christ's sake. Why any developer, especially one with as big a budget as Respawn surely have, would willingly develop their game using the Source Engine in 2014 is beyond me.
