good read, had no clue enslaved was going to be a movie until Hollywood said no. TBH who cares Hollywood doesn't know how to make a good video game movie if there lives depended on it

Every console gen from the beginning is about graphical improvements. Gameplay is an evolution on it's own.

Great article! A lot of good points, and its nice to see that commentors over there can discuss without bias raging.

Actually part of why i wrote the article was because of some of our conversation :D

This is an idea i'm rather passionate about <3

Why is the hottest topic about next gens always the graphics? It`s been a long time I talked about graphics. I guess some people grow up some don`t.
Example: PC people screams about having the best graphics, but some of the most played games are Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. Simply because they are fun.
You hear that Sony and ms, make games fun like Nintendo.

Completely agree.

Well many of the games are beautiful and fun,it all depends on what route they are taking,do they want fun and engaging(zelda,demons souls etc) or do they want to have a game with gorgeous visuals and a epic cinematic experience(Uncharted ,Halo)

@Kos-Mos

The reason is the because the more realistic graphic looks in a game, the more the game would feel emotionally driven.

That why nvidia used robots technology as an example on one of their demo(titan GPU video that is)

Nvidia wanted to show some comparison to how people would react in similar situation when humans interact with humanoid robot that are very realistic and lifelike; closely resemble to human behavior.

This GEN will bring something new graphic wise. that why its a hot topic right now.

jack, some of the most emotional moments in gaming have some of the most craptastic graphics you've ever seen, and those moments still hold up today.

Don't forget DOTA. But yes, gamers are generally hypocrites (those that don't approach the industry level-headed), this was established some time ago.

I hope the emphasis on next gen isn't just graphics, I want a new experience.
This is why I'll be buying a WiiU eventually, because I believe it offers something different. I'm hoping SONY reveal more on the PS4 other than the fact that the games are really really pretty.
With all the rumours that nextbox will be always online, I'm not putting much faith in Microsoft. I'll wait and see.

Well Infamous should be a blast if Infamous:festival of blood is any indication :)
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   834d ago
I played part of infamous 1 and the whole of 2 but not Festival of Blood, what was different about it?
KingKelloggTheWH  +   834d ago
At your question,blood fesitival had areally good enemies that were fun to fight and tons of Awesome new powers it is a blast :D

I agree there needs to be more fun games for people with current and next gen machines.

But it needs to have it's own section.

We all know FPS,TPS if done properly sell well.

Great racing games sell well.

Rayman origins was excellent and look forward to newer ones.

Can't really understand why no other company has used Mario as an example and built from it. It's a side scrolling platform game ffs.

Mario galaxy are good games as well.

@good_guy_Jamal.

Festival was about cole being bitten by a vamp and has until dawn to find and destroy the main one that got him, he has some new powers, and it's a good spin from a good series.
