"I’m not one to spend much time thinking about graphics technology. I like it when things look good, sure. Who doesn’t? I can even appreciate the clarity of 4k resolution, especially when it’s plopped down in front of my face via PC monitor. But I am not by and large impressed by resolution or framerates. I don’t care if something was upscaled if I can’t tell the difference just by playing it. I can admire particle effects only when they’re obviously adding something to the scene. I even prefer 30 fps from time to time. I drag myself unwillingly into hardware revolutions, hoping that developers choose to use the new hardware for gameplay effect rather than sharper visuals. And then, inevitably, some game comes along and makes me remember that yes, graphics technology is important. That new leaps forward in hardware can produce gamescapes of unparalleled beauty. For the 2017, and for Sony’s PS4, Uncharted 4 is that game."
