All other last gen's have these except graphics.

I consider a title "next-gen" when it's on next-gen titles (PS4/XBO) only. Of course, there are some exceptions (Destiny), but that's what I think, and I don't even own a next-gen console.

And that's exactly why artistic creativity is bound to go to hell.

Next Gen is just a buzz word. I don't really take stock in hype.

Kinda like SteamPowered's really just a hype word and really means nothing. To me, it just simply means that it's on the newest console. Most want to look to resolution as the argument, but it's never that simple. The new consoles are doing so much more than the old ones and there is so much going on in the background that the other ones can't do. The new consoles really don't get the credit they deserve for the step up they took. 720p on an old console is no where close to everything going on in a 720p game on a new console. At the end of the day, it's really just a marketing word...we are still at the same place where if a game sucks, no matter how shiny it is....if it's good, it's good.

An experience that was not capable on the last generation of hardware due to technical limitations.
