[CVG] Metro: Last Light on console is 'essentially identical' to PC, says THQ - Page 6

post #51 of 103
I don't get why this statement has to even be made when it's been the basis for multi-platform games for a long time. The advantage PC holds comes through improvements in textures, AA, etc... and at times throwing some PhysX marketing into it too.

More gameplay, less graphics. Just beat Hotline Miami and it was amazing. The only people that care about graphics to such a far extent are hardcore PC Enthusists for the most part.

That's not all that true. Graphics do help with immersion and atmosphere which were both very important aspects of Metro 2033. It's not the case for all games, but for Metro 2033 the visual aspects were very important. There's nothing to worry about, though, since this article was referring to gameplay. tongue.gif

Huw Beyno should have just said "Fundamentally the game is the same on both platforms, you just wouldnt want to ever play it on the Xbox360." But that wouldnt be good for sales.

I imagine it's sorta like this- Amazing Spiderman Wii vs Xbox


Sure it's fundamentally the same game...

I agree graphics do help with immersion but honestly for me good graphics only adds maybe 5-10% to the overall game experience. I just played the heck out of a game called Hotline Miami and it has Snes styled graphics but the gameplay was amazing. Good gameplay will always trump good graphics unless someone is a benchmark or hardware enthusiast.

You can have the best graphics in the world but if the gameplay isn't good than it's a crap game. On the other hand, you can have crap graphics but if the gameplay is amazing, it's an amazing game.

Amazing gameplay, story lines, etc are timeless whereas graphics really aren't. Art style is timeless too though, games like BG2 have really good art but thats considered separate for graphics but to me art direction > graphics.

Graphics, graphics, graphics. I'm starting to be a little bit sick of the PC gaming community.

LOL but that's being just freaking lazy. The Wii is WAY more capable than that.

So, what the PC community needs to be happy is basically a REAL photo-realistic version of the Sims to live in. It may end up being boring as heck, but hey, the graphics are good wink.gif

Essentially, we need the Bruce Willis movie, "Surrogates" to become reality lol

More more pc community is becoming something I wish not align myself with. 80% posts haven't read the article, not only that people fail to see the bigger picture. I don't feel like bashing the same topic again and again.I wonder how we will handle "PC GAMING IS DEAD" when new consoles come out.

That is the internet in general, not just PC gamers. Go to any forum about any subject and you will see similar occurrences. Don't try to turn this into a "PC is dying!" discussion.
