So What If Games Are Visually Downgraded? Are You Enjoying Them Less?

GH: "For the past few years, people have been annoyingly obsessed with visuals in gaming. Yes, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles can render so much more than their “prequels,” but, time and time again, people apparently need to be reminded that they don’t “play” graphics; they “play” the gameplay. So what if the reveal trailer includes more particles than the finished product? Or if that E3 gameplay footage has more foliage? Were you – honestly – ever in the middle of a game you were clearly enjoying and said, “man, this could have been so much better with an increased resolution”?"

I just wish they were honest from the get-go. I'm usually happy when the "visual downgrade" happens, because then I know we're to the point where the developer is actually being honest about their game.

No I really don't care

I just couldn't understand why I kept hearing about how amazing Witcher 3 looks, but when I watched gameplay videos, I didn't think it looked all that amazing. But then I saw what it used to look like.. yeah it DID look amazing, haha.

What's more interesting to me is that gamers would shit on Ubisoft and others for much less. But CD Projekt Red- no they're special, you can't criticize them.

It's like an overreaction in both directions. Ubisoft aren't as bad as they are made out to be, and these guys don't quite walk on water...

I think in this case it's down to the fact that even with a visual downgrade, The Witcher 3 is still a fantastic game. Watch Dogs was sort of a let down...

but I get what you are saying.

Watch Dogs definately didn't fully deliver on its promise.

but gamers turned on it and judged it based on downgrade alone before even playing it.

Yes..just like I enjoy a television show less if I can't watch it in HD.

Yes I am. If I want pure kinetic gameplay I'll play Angry Birda. If I want to get lost in an atmospheric, beautiful world I'll play a game that promises such a thing. If I buy a game that promised such a thing and didn't deliver I feel lied to.
