PC Gamer: It drives me absolutely nuts to hear people dismissively complain that a follow-up game that uses the same engine and some of the same graphics as the original “looks like a mod.” Lately we’ve heard it about Left 4 Dead 2 and BioShock 2, and we’re hearing it now about Fallout: New Vegas (which comes after the whining that Fallout 3 is a mod of Oblivion).
I just don’t get it.
If you’re a total graphics whore, sure—I suppose that anything that doesn’t look significantly better than what came before is unacceptable and under no circumstances worth paying $50 to play. Me? I’m more of a gameplay-first kind of guy.
