Here’s Why Embracing Mundanity Can Make For Better Games

Mundanity has been a common fixture of pop-culture for a while now, but less so in gaming. Can games benefit from adopting this theme?

UnleashTheGamer says "In the right hands, even a game focused on something as mundane as local politics can turn out in an interesting, if not compelling, experience (...) Mundanity, both as a premise and gameplay mechanic, should be more widely explored because it can contribute more to immersiveness than other components. Blurring the line between real life and the game – either through quests or mechanics – can make the world feel even more believable."

Red Dead Redemption 2 Needs 60FPS Update Before GTA 6 Arrives

Bawal from Tech4Gamers writes "Red Dead Redemption 2 is still incredibly popular today, and it's a shame it hasn't received a 60FPS upgrade for consoles yet."

Kind of wonder why they can't release a patch for 60fps. I don't expect a native ps5 just a patch to allow the original PS4 version run at 60 on ps5. They did it for the red dead redemption remaster.

Cacabunga37d ago

I just got the platinum a few weeks ago.. I would replay the whole main story in 60FPS if this happens.

ocelot0736d ago

I tried forcing my self to play it on ps5 recently and the 30fps killed it for me I just can't do it.

Played the pc online version and it was just a joy playing it at 1440p 80+ FPS.

Amplitude36d ago

They could. There are 60fps mods for hacked PS5s. They're just waiting for the same reason they're waiting to release Red Dead 1 on PC - staggered hype

isarai37d ago

It needs far more than 60fps, better resolution, fix the trash checkerboard rendering that somehow makes 1440p look worse than 1080p, fix the input lag, and fix the wack HDR implementation.

sagapo37d ago

Yeah, the HDR is terrible, made me wonder why the dev’s even bothered.

isarai37d ago

The fact that they've been called out on it by several sources and still haven't done a thing. It's just ridiculous

anast37d ago

The game looks great on my PS5 and PC monitor. You might need to update your gear.

isarai37d ago

Everything i said is proven, documented and demonstrated by several sources including Digital Foundry. I have a $3k 4k lg OLED, and ive been professionally calibrating displays for over a decade. It aint me or my equipment

anast37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

It's too far away from trash. It looks great on my setup. It has to be your equipment or your perception or you enjoy being hyperbolic.

isarai37d ago

@anast

Learn to read, you're talking in circles.

anast37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

This is a common trend with you. You seem to not understand the words you are typing. But unlike you, I am not gifted enough to make judgments on the level of your literacy.

"Fix the trash" is being hyperbolic. At least, now we know what the problem is. It's not your equipment or Digital Foundry skewing your perception.

isarai37d ago

You seem to not understand how to read an entire sentence which seems to be the common trend with you. How about you quote the entire statement. "Fix the treash checkerboard rendering" which, yeah if it makes 1440p look worse than 1080p it's somehow not just failing to do it's only job, but actually making things worse. It would be better off thrown out....like trash. Hell even Digital Foundry reccomends forcing a 1080p output over 1440p for a clearer image, and even just made a new video like a week ago bringing up that problematic soft checkerboard rendering again.

All of which you can gather by my very first response to you, that you somehow respond to, but don't actually comprehend. It's like if i told you "hey here's $5 for you a coffee" you would respond "ok but i need a coffee and don't have any money" you ask the question to the answers you're currently replying to, can you not read? Do you not know how to fact check? Do search bars, google, and YouTube not exist for you? Figure it out, you're a whole ass human im not going to walk you through how to use your own damn brain.

sagapo37d ago

Anast, I’ve played Red Dead on my LG oled, it looked better with HDR turned off. The fact however that Gran Turismo in HDR looks superb on the same screen pretty much says it all. HDR in Red Dead is broken.

ocelot0736d ago

Sorry but compared to pc even at 1080p on pc it looks like someone has rubbed vaseline on the console versions. Only time only time it looks really good on consoles is during cut scenes.

anast36d ago

I suppose you are doubling down. Good on you. The echoes got to sound good from your angle.

anast36d ago

I'm not talking about HDR. This is what I am addressing. "fix the trash checkerboard rendering that somehow makes 1440p look worse than 1080p." You all keep changing the goal posts so you can be right. The game looks great on my end.

Rockstar's gonna do jack s*** about it

Profchaos37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

I've been waiting for this since getting my ps5 I don't think it's a big ask the game sold 32 million copies plus.

There's already homebrew out there to achieve this on modded consoles.

Knowing Rockstar they probably want to release a native version but will delay it over and over like GTA v which didn't need a native port tbh a 60fps patch would of been fine.

I predict however were more likely to get GTA IV remastering ported to PS4/5/switch same as rdr
