[Nowgamer]Crytek: 10x Graphical Power Only Doubles Visual Fidelity - Page 4

post #31 of 116
Anyways, I'm glad I never purchased Crysis 2. This is what happens when you forget where you came from.

Texture quality has nothing to do with my point. Idtech5 engine does, however.

That's a testament to how good the Idtech5 engine is written. Remember when Doom3 came out and completely shut down a 6800GTX? That was the top card at the time. iD's next engine is so far beyond their last, they're pushing the industry. Wait until we see Doom 4. It'll be on the Idtech5 engine, and it'll be jaw dropping. Crytek hasn't done anything to advance the industry since Crysis 1, and they're not going to. They're going to milk the console cow as long as they can.

My point is, Crytek took a step backwards, while companies like iD are stepping forward.

I didn't know that average joe had worse eyeballs than hardcore gamers.


I remember when everyone cried and whined because Crysis wasn't optimized.

Everyone then: Waaaah crysis doesn't look that pretty it's just really unoptimized waaaah why can't i play it on my 8800gt QQ ;_;

Everyone now: Waaaah I want a game that will not run well on my system so that way I know it's pushing the graphics boundaries wahhhhh

Exactly this. The reason 10x the power doesn't give 10x the fidelity is optimization.

Are we supposed to be held accountable because most devs can't be bothered to code their game to take advantage of powerful hardware?

All those words are relative.

gaming on my 2560x1600 monitor, that is the definition of visually stunning. 1600p is an eyegasm.

A nice reaction from Crytek to the chart where NVidia showed how much more powerfull a GTX580 was compared to the GPU in a console. Finally someone with actual understanding of the matter replying to the "not backed up by anything" charts Nvidia fed the PC club.
Crytek have moved over into console land and make all sorts of silly comments these days. I expect their future titles to be console only.
post #38 of 116
I'm not saying Nvidia's charts are accurate but the finer details demand more power per detail. That being said to get 50% more detail you probably need 100% more everything else. Besides why is it suddenly Nvidia is the only company that can't put on a dog an pony show to attract customers? I think someone is afraid to utilize the extra power if you ask me.

Relative to other games on the market in this case.

Crysis did push the boundaries and it did not run that well at first because people though they could get away with just a 8800GT. I know for a fact it played very well in High with just a HD 4850. Now Crysis 2 plays just as bad without breaking any boundaries. I would rather have a game which my system could not handle but look amazing then have a game which looks good but not amazing and not run in my system.
