" Graphics like Avatar " heard many months ago. This statement caused various discussions within the industry at the time, but today more than ever, we see that it is quite possible, and not a crazy idea.

Why do people's expectations go beyond what they should really be?

I remember before the PS360 came out many expecting 7th gen to have real-life-like graphics since apparently we were only a gen away from such goal. Many were disappointed with the power-jump the 360 offered and the hype for the PS3 even made some believe the PS3 would unrealistically reach ridiculous graphical fidelity. We're still 3 or 4 generations away from Avatar graphics btw.

I dunno, I imagine a PC could pull off such graphics if they focused it to work with only the like 1 percent who actually have the requirements to play it.

The tech is there, Im sure. Its more the market we're waiting on.

Bro , what the heck you are talking about ? Did you see PS4 E3 Tech demo "The Dark Sorcerer " ? That's almost looked like avatar graphics and its in real time .

Good point. It basically looked like real life.

Graphics, lighting, shadows and effects etc in video games have come a long way. Just look at Killzone Shadowfall, that is a launch title. Imagine what the games will look like in 6-7 years time...

To be honest I'm happy that bf4 is going to be 32 vs32 60 frames per sec 1080p I could only dream of that a year ago

Agreed, the problem I have with alot of these engines is while they may look good there is no dynamic interaction with the environment like frostbite engines!!! I hate seeing a game that's all pretty but when you walk around in it is a dead lifeless event.I think destruction of the environment should have become standard for all engines and if its a gameplay problem scale it up or down to fit your game!!!!
