The Fallout series is not known for having the best graphics, and Fallout 4 will be no different. But that is not necessarily a bad thing, Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines said today at E3 2015.
I can live with lesser graphics, the mod community will fix that anyways. I just don't want game play or world size cut down due to the consoles. That can't be fixed. Anyways, should be an awesome game. Can't wait.
you mean like gtav or witcher3 world size was cut down because of consoles??? S come on, man.
Mithan Get off your high horse. There are some huge open world games on consoles, try again. And good luck, you're going to be waiting a good while before you have some decent graphics mods, because that's clearly all you really care about. Meanwhile we'll be enjoying this fantastic game on our terrible terrible consoles.
It's sad when this needs to be constantly stated but I hope it will eventually sink in for some people. Yes, highly-detailed graphics are great to look at but gamers will basically play any game that is fun for them regardless of the graphics.
Fallout 4 doesn't need the best graphics. Be ready for an epic journey
No, epic fail.
Here we go. "Not the best graphics..." What are we expecting of this new-gen cycle really? Make things more busy on-screen and mechanics or improve the visuals...or both? Newer consoles are supposed to bring it when it comes to the visual department. That being said, I'm not complaining about the visuals of FO4 at all. The series has it's own signature look. It cracks me up when a developer releases a trailer and everyone pans it because it doesn't look next-gen. Think about the the initial FO4 trailer and the responses. Think about Gears4 and the responses it got. Pick a game. The visuals are commented on first and people complain. Obviously not every teaser falls into this category. Then you see a lot of articles and comments about how "gaming is about the gameplay" or "I don't care about the graphics". Then why not stick to your PS3 or 360?! I just think this is ironic coming from the mouths of gamers.
If you want amazing graphics at high resolution and acceptable frame rate on consoles go complain to MS/Sony and tell them to not skimp on graphics and CPU power next time. You'll also have to pay a premium for the privilege as you get what you pay for. If you aren't willing to pay premium prices for an amazing console then STFU about graphics.
Why are gaming journos so eager to make this irrelevant graphics argument a thing? The only people claiming this are the PC elitist types on NeoGaf. I thought the E3 reveal dispelled these opinions anyway? The game looks great, considering the size and scope. People are just kicking up dirt for hits.
Graphics are good especially when you take into account how big and interactive the environment is and that it includes base building. So glad this is coming so soon after announcement, awesome.
With how massive the in game world is if it was next gen graphics would glitch and freeze all the time there is just so much going on and when have fallout graphics ever Ben great its pretty much the unlimited ability to do anything u want that makes the game such a huge success
With Bethesda's track record, they have no problem glitching and freezing all the time even without next-gen graphics. That said, gameplay > graphics. But graphics can definitely enhance the gameplay experience. Games like Killing Floor 2, Destiny, Battlefield, Witcher and others would be much less enjoyable had the game not had just great graphical feedback when shooting, slicing, etc.
