Have You Heard About The Graphics In Crysis 3?

Kotaku - Whoo boy, those Crysis 3 graphics. I knew they were good, but I had no idea you could get so enthusiastic about it. I guess I underestimated the passion of bros.

The story is too old to be commented.

This sums up a lot of PC gamers haha.

Wouldn't it be great if genuinely good games, with good stories, game mechanics and fleshed out characters where actually considered more important than "teh graphics"...

BattleAxe1630d ago

Not if you're a PC gamer.

Thing with crysis 2 and 3 is that its a decently linear game with almost no Physics. Where are the destructible environments crytek? The water isn't even dynamic in crysis.

While Resistance had water that looked like goo, it was still dynamic and would have displacement depending on how something hits the water. A grenade would displace the water more than a bullet. In crysis everything displaces the water equally.

With Crysis' graphics, battlefield's destruction and lighting, Resistance's water effects, and way more efficient coding, Cryengine 3 would be perfect.

It's just how they make the game, not a graphical issue.

vulcanproject1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

Console only gamers forgetting which platform has the biggest and most thriving community for Indie titles as well as the origin of many huge console games which aren't 'all about teh grafix'.

You know Trials HD you love? Minecraft? Portal? GTA even?

PC can do both, and most PC gamers aren't just obsessed with cutting edge graphics, often embracing stuff like minecraft regularly and turning it into the huge deal it is now from nothing....

Let see:

Isnt it console gamers who are stuck on the same type of games all the time with little to no innovation. Console game releases look like this Shooter, Shooter, Third person shooter, Shooter, Third person shooter,Racer, Platformer, Third person shooter, Platformer, Shooter.

Thats pretty much it.

Lol at people saying PC gamers are all about graphics. Check out Steam right now. More people are playing Dota 2 than anything else. Dota 2 is hardly a game that would qualify for graphics. Its a new concept, its complex and fun as hell to play.

Mean while All console only gamers are doing is playing Shooters like COD.

While PC gamers have release lists like:

RTS, Shooter, Moba, RPG, MMO, Simulator, Third Person shooter, Platformer, Racer etc.

Console gaming in recently history has been all about one genre in particular mass shooters all of them trying to clone COD, thats all the innovation you get there.

Some of the greatest games of today came to life as mods on the PC: Portal, Dota, Counter Strike say hi.

Real games like what? COD? thats whats the highest played game on console. Same crap year on year.

Judging by your name you seem like a Playstation fan, go on name me an exclusive for that matter that people actually play beyond that 10hr Campaign? KZ? UC? Mag 256?

From what i have heard the servers are dead no one plays those games online any more. So much for being real games.

Check out Team fortress 2 5 years old still many play it, Check out Dota 2 not even released yet and has more people playing it than most first party Sony games get played at launch (MP).

Yeah like console gamers don't fight between which console has better graphics, hypocrite much >? Not talking about the vid btw, this is a reply to Harry

Sam Fisher1630d ago

It sounds funny when two pc gamers are arguing, they sound like military men talking about guns, for e.g. "I have a Falcon Northwest Quad with a built in etc, or a gddr 5 aspec hard dou etc". Sounds like youre building a bomb

omi25p1630d ago

Actually he would only be a hypocrite if you had proof he goes into a console debate and starts saying "DA GWAFFICS"!

FlameBaitGod1630d ago

Um i said consoles gamers, not him, learn to read bro ?

HarryMasonHerpderp1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )


Yeah console gamers do it too.
Most PC guys (not all PC guys) tend to go on and on about graphics a lot more though.
Herp derping about their specs and how awesome Crysis looks instead of what the game actual plays like, which is pretty average apparently.
Not hating on PC guys, they should just admit they do do it a lot and laugh about it.
It's no big deal, I would go on about it too if I'd spent a ton of money on a PC.

edit: reading the comments further down seems like I've pissed off a lot of PC guys. Why are you all taking this so seriously? I meant no offence.

As if you would know, fanboy.

I own Crysis 3 on both PC and PS3, and the console version's framerate is goddamn UNPLAYABLE by comparison, never mind "THE GRAPHICS!"

sway_z1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

You sir, are a liar and a charlatan!

...Crysis 3 is more than playable on PS3...The frame rate is obviously lower than a £800 - £1,000 top spec PC...but please don't misinform people that Crysis 3 is unplayable on the sub £200 PS3.

I have played Crysis 3 (Highest settings/V sync off) on PC, and the PS3 version 'by comparison' is very respectable considering it's 7 year old hardware with a fraction of the power

morganfell1630d ago

Dead on the nail sway. I cut my gaming teeth on the PC and have a huge library of PC titles and have been beta testing Steam on Linux from the earliest iteration. Yet I shake my head at the remarks by people such as Dwight.

A comment such as "unplayable", which is nothing more than a blatant lie merely demonstrates the degree to which the desperate will resort. PC gamers are the largest group of "all cry and no buy" you will find in gaming. It is no wonder companies would rather build for a console than for a pirate that runs a PC put together with duct tape, coat hangers, and 5 year old drivers.

I have a Falcon Northwest Quad setup but the fact is most gamers do not. Yet most PC promoters act as if everyone runs the latest graphics card and CPU with 16GB of RAM. But one thing you can say about every PS3 gamer is the ability of the console to play the games equally. The same is true for 360 gamers.

Now with next gen truly on top of us PC gamers are pulling out all stops in a desperate measure to cast doubt and dispersion before they are once again relegated to the back seat of publishing preference. If they think things are bad now, wait until the PS4 launches and very staisfied developers really give them the cold shoulder.

I don't think anyone ever said PS3 was as good as the PC version. I have never played the game myself but I have seen videos of it played on PS3 and PC(the PC version should look way better). They do look damn similar to me though, infact I think the game itself looks like a turd to be honest. It seems you don't like it when people have opinions different from yours, grow up, you talk like a spoiled little kid.

Baka-akaB1630d ago

Some of you guys need to get your stories straight and coherent at least . People can't keep making the point that pc gaming is cheaper , that you dont need to make a lot of expenses for a good gaming pc - which is somewhat true - while claiming that console gamers , yet forking so much into their consoles and games are just broke .

It makes some people looks like raving lunatics

sway_z1630d ago


Why so much Venom?

Just chill, I'm not knocking the PC, I'm just correcting your misinformation. You really should just relax and debate sensibly.

I wish you every good thing :)

If anything this is the complete opposite of PC gamers. Most PC Gamers don't care so much for graphics, we care about gameplay.

Yes, there are many people who only talk about graphics cards, CUDA cores, polygons, and GRAPHICS. But the majority of them....not really. We actually look at the releases of new graphics cards, wishing we could afford them, and spend some time looking at water cooling kits to make our system look better.

What really happens though is we just want a decent game to play, no half ass made games that were released 6 months early...oh and we don't like sequels to an FPS every 12 months

Eldyraen1630d ago

I just assumed it was flamebait and not to be taken seriously after seeing 'Kotaku' in the description.

If 'serious' its still a retarded satirical look at PC gaming from some console fanboy's perspective. If actually done from a PC gamer then they should had just kept their mouth shut and scrapped the video as it makes some of us look even more stupid than the worst fanboys I've seen for any platform.

Ducky1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

^ The video itself is from Machinima, which kotaku just reposted.
BroTeam are moderately popular and all their reviews pretty much follow the 'retarded' format.

It's made by mostly-PC gamers, and the goal is humour. Some people enjoy it, some don't, and some take it too seriously.

Eldyraen1630d ago

@Ducky: I know it was just a repost, but anything I see linked by Kotaku I just have to go in assuming the worst especially if its anything to do with 'popular' beliefs (even if not serious like this one). Every once in a while I like an article but most, to me, is just a waste.

Whoever enjoys it though, good for them. There's just a reason I don't follow things like it.

Baka-akaB1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

Steady is right . If anything the most played games arent even graphical beast . People should be more honest and upfront about it most of our steam , battlenet and gfwl friendlists are chokeful of people playing Starcraft , world of warcraft , Counterstrike , ArmA , DayZ , Minecraft , Cod , LoL , DOTA2 , TF2 and hlmods , free crap etc ...

Not at all or usually the likes of Crysis , even when we have the power to do so .

classic2001630d ago

The amount of PC gamers who I ran into talk only about graphical performances these days.

Steadyhndz1630d ago

Oh...and we don't crap ourselves over new DLC announcements.

Typical PS3 fanboy - ignorant and retarded.

Much can be said about the PC crowd... Ignorant and God complex

shackdaddy1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

^Ya, because PC fanboys are really the only ones with a God complex. You even see the PS4 articles on this website? How bout this whole Teh8GigsRam thing? It's like a freakin cult you guys have going on here...

Mr-Dude1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

True, but for the first time the Sony "followers" are getting what they wanted. Games what in some lenght are on the same level as a PC (read some! because we all know the PC wil always be better, exclusive PS4 games are another story) and they want to brag about it. But the same day it was announced the whole PC-crowd came down on the Sony fans. Since that day it's like a warzone... So yeah, PC fans have a more God complex about their NASA rigs, because they always describe, brag about their system and the almighty Crysis, and bash the other consoles. It's in every PS4 article... youtube, forums etc. What's next? The bashing of the new console of Microsoft? Calling every console exclusive game ugly and old, "The PC is much better" but then almost every game on the PC is pirated thats a It's like you? or the other PC fans don't want the other systems to evolve
