Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)
So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish."
Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLING pre-orders?
Not I, or anyone else was excited over this game because of its graphics. We were excited over it because of its CONCEPT. Doing whatever you want, hacking whatever you want, etc. And TONS of news about the game such as collectible cars, costumes, minigames, etc have been announced after the downgrade. Yet nobody CARES, because it doesn't look as good as you want it to.
And on top of that, it looks FINE!
I won't go as far as to call it visually stunning, but I don't understand WHAT makes you idiots think that the game looking worse than it was intended to somehow makes it less fun. You are the same people who will go back and replay a PS2 or Gamecube or Xbox game, or even NES, or even Atari. If you'll go back and replay those games, then you shouldn't give a flying goomba about how well it looks unless it looks absolutely HORRIBLE.
And like I said, It looks FINE!
On top of all this, now people are worried about the Division. Seriously? Not ONCE before all of this was I hyped about the Division because of its graphics; It was because of its multiplayer, gameplay, and CONCEPT.
You speak of innovation, yet the only thing you ever appear to care about is graphics. Are GRAPHICS the new innovation? If you think so, then screw innovation! It doesn't exist! Any attempt at innovation is dismissed as a gimmick! Innovation doesn't matter! It never mattered! All we care about is graphic. Resolution. How pretty it looks. And despite all the talk about graphics, you'll forget about how pretty the game looks after a couple of days. Not ONE game is stilled being praised today because of graphics.
Get it through your skulls; GRAPHICS. DON'T. MATTER!
Ok, one thing I said was wrong. THIS game is still praised over its graphics. Oddly enough, not only is this game sub HD, but if people are still gawking over this, and the Watch Dogs now looks BETTER than this, then what's the problem? Tell me.
