We ask the question of our staff, What is the definition of next generation gaming?
Very brief or no loading screens, looking your way Destiny.
Unified experience. Only one place to get it too.
One could argue that the only real innovations in gaming over the last two decades has been graphic quality and presentation. I am waiting for a true next generation of game play. What will it be? Could it be the VR movement? Probably not but I hope that leads to the next big change in how we not only play games, but how the games are made for us.
It is the generation of gaming after this one.
Games that are impossible on the previous gen.
Driveclub, the order 1886 and uncharted 4 are some examples of next gen gaming
how the hell you're having dislikes???
better gfx = next gen. thanks somehow i knew this would be most of n4g user post to answer this question. it kinda make you think about things. when you look at it the only next gen system is wiiU and thats because it screen is used for gameplay purposes and the last gen didnt have it. the others.... oh i could just turn down the gfx but hey, lets tell them we cant do it to make them feel better.
@ chrissx How were Driveclub, The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4? How long did it take you to beat them?
I picture games like No Man's Sky being close to what I expect next gen gaming to be. Expansive ever changing worlds, a whole universe to explore. If these types of games could throw in an epic ever evolving stories, truly smart A.I., connect everyone online, have players build and create not only materials for ships and houses but being able to create entire cities or mother ships. That to me is next gen gaming. Right now all we are getting are the same types of games with shinier coats of paints
starbound, minecraft, planet^3, etc. it just look better. soooooo...... great idea tho, and looks like it going to be a good game. i like waiting to it launch before getting hyped
VR - it's the only thing that can markedly change how we play and experience games for the better. But it's probably years off. Prices need to go down for the sets and current consoles don't have the power to do it properly. And the rigs that could would be pretty expensive.
PC. Not some under powered new console.
PC AND STAR CITIZEN IS THE NEXT GEN OF GAMING
