So here's my reflection:
PC gamers don't enjoy gaming, the enjoy graphics. And that's why you get the best rig, just to play the game on the maximum settings. And if graphically a game doesn't meet your expectations, no matter how awesome it is, it's BS (like BF 3 for example, where a lot of people had the nerve to complain about blurry textures, when the lightning and particle effects are awesome). And that's true.
A game is not all graphics; it's a story, a gameplay, realism and a design.And don't mix design with graphics because they are 2 different aspects. Realism is a match of various things: Graphics + physics and particle effects + story events + sound. So as you can see, the graphics attribute is always in company with another attribute.
And don't get me wrong; I'm a complete PC gamer. I don't own any console (and never will). I'm just trying to make a real point about us. Here there are too many PC gamers that make me sick when they talk so bad about BF3, for example. And it's because they compare it with the consoles. They launched the Back To Karkand maps, and people are starting to complain about them. Why, dudes, why? They are the exact same maps as they were in BF 2, wait, not the exact same, with 100x times better graphics! And they aren't satisfied, because nothing will satisfy those people. That's why they make me sick.
So that's it. I want you to give me your comments and opinions. But try to be honest with yourself.
I have been PC gaming since DOOM 1.....Call me crazy but I still play on occasion games from
10-12 years ago,crap I love HL1 still and load it up for giggles atleast once a year COD2,love it,NFS the early versions were great
and Graphics are not even something I think about.......I think about STORY LINE, CHARACTERS,HISTORY
FACTS and NON FICTION............all is whats missing in today graphics heavy junk that Console(main stream gamers) gamers have
made us all become FLAT,BORING and ALL FICTION.....So let them kids complain all they want IMO the older stuff was
way better,even with old graphics...
