Why doesn't Portal 2 look better? - Page 3

post #21 of 34
I don't think Crysis 2 lowered the bar LOL. Did You ever saw something like buildings falling in any game? I mean really high buildings just like in Crysis 2. Or did You ever saw Tsunami falling in to the New York? I don't think so. Even if the game has some bad textures it still has better graphics for me than C1.

i'm confused.
Because Valve releases way better games compared to Crytek aka Portal 2 > Crysis 2 in all aspects except graphics.

But you didn't cause the buildings to fall or the tsunami to occur, those were scripted sequences. Any engine is capable of that. I think the original game's nuclear weapons were far more impressive graphically and they weren't used exclusively in cut scenes.

But at all Crysis 2 graphics looks better than Crysis 1. I think Crysis 1 looks better only with some graphics tweaks But that's my opinion

Am I the only one that thought it actually looked pretty great?

Because it's multi-platform and the consoles have a very limited amount of VRAM. Also, on the PC spectrum, valve wanted to appeal to as many steam users as possible.

To my knowledge most game textures are made at stupidly high resolution, but are scaled down. So, theoretically game devs probably could release high-res texture packs for those with more VRAM and beefier GPUs, but usually they don't. Wish they did

Flawed logic. Why couldn't they just have set a later release date and update to the standard of graphics in 2011? Clearly a lot of people, especially PC gamers, want it.

Real answer: Everybody will buy it anyway, which is why they slack. This is what I really think.

The textures in Valve's games are pretty sharp anyway. Don't need to be sharper. HL2's textures are sharper than Crysis 2's rofl.
