How does one compare an updated version of a 2013 game to what many consider a “true” next-generation effort? That’s a very difficult task for any critic…
''True next-gen'' games doesn't run at 30fps
I'm the ONE to disagree with you
Yeah I disagree with Neixus as well, but I'd also say a cross gen game isn't "true next gen". Still, Destiny is probably going to be the game that finally makes me jump into the current gen.
Why? This game is held back by the pre-gen consoles. I'm pretty sure ps4/xboxone would be able to run this at 60fps if it weren't for ps3/360 I look forward to the game, but the writer of the article called it a true next-gen game. Which is wrong. And why would you disagree? the definition of a next generation involves improvements. There are no improvements if the game is running at 30fps, which is a shame, because I really like this game. Will buy it regardless though
Exactly. And they are 2 entirely different games. For one, I adore TLoU:R, but Destiny is gonna b something different, combining two very addictive genres with tight game play and gorgeous visuals.
how do you compare a good article to a crap one?? u cant compare them in any way at all
So if it's 30fps it's not a true next gen game? You have to make choices when making a game and one of them is tif you go with better graphics and 30fps or less good graphics and 60fps. Anyway I don't know why someone would compare TLoU and Destiny at all. One is a remaster the one isn't and they are both completely different from each. TLoU is amazing and judging by the Beta Destiny will be as well.
There is a lot more to next gen then just the frames per second. There is how many pixels are rendered each frame, texture resolution, better draw distance, better level of detail, less texture pop in although it does still still happen, more players in games(Battlefield) and best of all exclusives haven't looked better(The Order 1886 and Ryse: Son of Rome). Granted Ryse could've used better gameplay it definately showed off the Crytek engine being super optimized. Normally developers make games for the current gen consoles and PC. With PC there is so many different builds that they do have to optimize so that every computer can power through the game. A game like Destiny that is being made for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 can be around the same amount of work that would be required if it was an Xbox One, PS4 and PC title.
Can a cross-gen game be a 'next-gen' game?
Yes. But you don't compare those games at all. They're two totally different games.
True in that one is a First person shooter with MMO elements, and the other is a third person action adventure game. I meant that TLOU is a remastered PS3 title, and Destiny is a cross-gen multi-platform title.
Technically TLOU remastered is a PS4 game. Yes is was originally on PS3 but if u pick up the Remastered copy it would say PS4, so yes its next gen.
How to compare Destiny with The Last of Us?? You don't?
Yeah, I don't see the point of this comparison other than to stir up the fanboys.
This author is trying to compare a squad based online multiplayer first person shooter to a survival stealth action game. What the heck. -.-
Unless it's a slow news day..
tell u something though,i didnt lay last of us on ps3,im enjoying now on my ps4 and apart from the pop in issue,the game is amazing,prob best i ever played almost,defo in top 3
Well, they're games, made by people for people.............. that's about it
Comparing them is senseless. 1st of all they entirely different genres and one is online only while the other isn't etc
Comparing two entirely different games? Yeah that makes a lot of sense.
The comparision is did u or do u enjoy one more then the other .. For example u can compare NBA 2k 14 too call of duty ghost... two totally different game genres.. my friends ask me what game should I get cod or 2k I say if u want replayability there both good but if u want a game that shows off some nextgen graphics then 2k beats call of duty ghost all day! Any game can be compared along those lines...
As if we didn't have enough Destiny articles or TLOU articles already, now we're getting a cross over article.....
Gotta keep the ratings up.
The hell? They are two completely different games, you don't compare them..
There's nothing truly next gen about either. Destiny is cross gen, and TLOU, is a port of a last-gen game. Nevermind the fact that these to games should never be compared....
Why would you compare the two? They are both completely different games.
I don't. I just enjoy both. Go figure.
Some of the things on this site are so effin retarded like you dont compare these two games not even the same genre .
Next time, how do you compare Call of Duty Advanced Warfare to Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Easy answer: You don't.
Exactly, the author of that article should quit his/her job, clearly stupid.
Exactly. This is an incredibly stupid question to ask. They're completely different types of games.
