DTG: Current-Gen Games Just Glorified Tech Demos?

It is no stretch to say that graphics are the main focus this generation. Sometimes, developers are trying their hardest to please fans visually and they forget there is still a game to make. There are games that combine both aspects and are executed very well, but those titles are in the minority compared to the big picture. We’re all for an outstanding-looking game, but the question “where is my game?” still remains. (Industry, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

When you buy them on sale they are worth the money 100%, when you pay £30-40 for a game it can essentially be a tech demo for the price you pay.

the Uncharted games have great graphics and gameplay.. More devs should put time into fleshing out the story and characters like ND!

Naughty Dog makes some excellent games, but they always keep in mind that their games need to be fun, too!

graphics and gameplay are designed by different people in the game development process. One has nothing to do with the other, they are _independent_
dedicatedtogamers  +   1779d ago
So you're saying that a videogame receives two completely separate budgets, one for gameplay and one for graphics? That's news to me.
sjaakiejj  +   1779d ago
The budget doesn't affect gameplay, conceptually. It might lead to less content, but the game-design itself is not affected by the budget. The only thing that affects it is the quality of the game designer.
