If you are not drawn into the world, then you are only watching it and thus not really interested. I like forgetting who I am and where I am when I play a game so that I live in that setting. Atmosphere is a key element in this process.

Look at a game like Limbo. So simple but the atmosphere is what took a smart puzzle game and made it something amazing.

I agree. On that same note; another arcade game, Bastion, reeled me in with its atmosphere. The beautiful hand-drawn environments and story were enough to keep me interested.

Metro 2033, Bioshock, LIMBO and Dead Space all have superb atmosphere.

Everything. Look at Resident Evil 5 and then the older RE games, especially the gamecube remake. Same series, different feel

I just want 4k/1440p and 60fps support. And with little glitches too ofc.

This is about the PC version of RDR 1. The PC version of RDR 2 doesn't have a frame rate cap. Though I do agree, it is mind boggling that Rockstar still hasn't released a patch for consoles.

It'll be great if true

Hopefully 60fps on consoles for RDR2 is next then.

LucasRuinedChildhood9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Honestly, a PS5 Pro isn't even needed for 60fps in this case. But if they wanted to use it show a game running maxed out at a high resolution at 60fps, I wouldn't complain. Just give us 60fps. lol

I think the Series X might have an issue running the One X version at a locked 60fps as that version was a full native 4K but they could just lower the resolution a bit.

I wish to play both stellar blade, and rdr2, on the pro, maxed out like an expensive pc,

would be good, especially for the price, even if thats £499/ £549

last I checked, a rtx 4070super was £580 for just the card!

There aren't many games I'd double dip for, but having originally gotten this for PS3, I would happily get this if true.
