Perfect game graphics still decades away

TechEye: We have games that can emulate anything, and although they look pretty, according to software whizzes, graphics to completely support them and bring them to life are still far away.

Will anything ever be "perfect" though? As soon as you advance to what you think is perfect now, there will be further to go.

Exactly what I was going to say. I can't believe we used to think Pong was the best we could do lol

CarlitoBrigante2472d ago

PS3 exclusives are almost perfect, maybe PS4 will be close to perfect.

Come on nobody is that delusional. They look great but there will always be huge advances to be made to future games and CGI.
Further development won't stop because there can always be improvements made with technology in all aspects, that's just the nature of it.

No game in today's world is close to rendering photo-realism but with great art direction, you can achieve an effect that's better than realism.

Just look at Quantic Dream's Kara demo; most of the detail was on Kara's face and maybe her hands. The rest we didn't care about so most of the processing power went to animating her face.

Realism also can have that "Uncanny valley" look where it gets a little creepy.

Wow just think how graphics and games have evolved.

Pong to BF3 PC!

It's been one hell of a ride! Now bring on Ray Tracing! Yippie!

"Now bring on Ray Tracing! Yippie!". There is already a ray tracing card out there that can run at game FPS the only problem is the price £3000.

It'll be with us within three years

I wonder if games will ever have real life graphics

Red_eyes_Gremlin2472d ago

Sadly (correct me if i am wrong - i so want this to happen)

But i am 31 now and I think I sadly wont be alive when the technolegy (sry spelling) let`S us play games in Avatar or puss in boots/Tintin (See that movie in 1080p and you understand what i mean 0.0 its AMAZING) graphics.

When you you guys think the technoligy will come?

I mean look at the Samarian (spelling) demo for an example,
It looks beautiful - but not even close to puss in boots / or happy feet/Finding nemo

Maybe when i am 70 or so my future kids will be playing stuff that looks like Avatar (if i am lucky) but i dont even think the graphics will look like that then.

I think the 3d evolution / virtual reality step will come first...

But that is IMO - What do you guys/girls think?

It took about a decade to reach the level of quality with Toy Story. I'd go out on a limb and guess that we'll see Avatar quality graphics around 2020.

I really think the next step for games is virtual reality and would not be surprised to see a working prototype within the next twenty years.

perfect game graphics for me would be like toy story/monsters inc.
