Or am I missing something? Because I've seen the PC game play and the visuals surely aren't Crysis 3.
From COD4 all the way to MW3, the graphics were completely stagnant and extremely outdated by the time MW3 rolled around (by PC standards). BO2 took a very tiny step forward but it wasn't much. Since it's primarily a console game, and we're now on to a new generation of consoles, the series is going to make a pretty decent jump in graphics quality. Now Ghosts is definitely not going to blow your mind in any way compared to what's been out on PC already or even other upcoming next-gen games, but you have to admit, the visuals in Ghosts are quite a big step-up from MW3/BO2, and for the first time, IW is putting some time and effort into making the PC version better looking than the (next-gen) console version.
As for Nvidia... it obviously means you can use their proprietary closed-source features if you have an Nvidia card, and that's better than nothing (unless your an AMD gamer like me). When you buy an Nvidia card, part of what you are paying for are these proprietary features, so when you buy an Nvidia-sponsored game at least you know you're getting all that you paid for.Edited by iamhollywood5 - 8/24/13 at 12:19am
