Why was cod4 awarded "best graphics"

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
just wondering why cod4 was awarded the best graphic considering the hardware which cod4 requires is lower compared to crysis. And doesn't have all the technology that cryengine 2 has. I am still confused to what ign and gametrailer were taking/smoking.

The video in gametrailer trailer is what really pissed me off. saying that "don't know if there is a PC on the planet to run crysis" hello crysis can run on 7xxx series and 8xxx series.

I am asuming this is about some E3 award...

keep in mind that Far Cry won some graphics awards too and it didn't use all technology either. All these awards are based on the opinions of a few people.

LOL the SLI'ed Ultras in the rig demoing it probally couldn't put out enough FPS for Crysis to look the best...plus I know I've heard that Crysis is supposed to use some tech that is not currently capable of any GPU. I don't really believe it though...if no card is capable of it how did it get developed.

The video you link in post 5 says that Crysis is best gfx, and the one you link in 7, I mean - Who cares? It is just an opinion of a few people, maybe as little as one person. Its also pretty obvious that the Gametrailers guys don't no squat about PC and PC hardware, since they say 'teh feck will it run on current hardware' or something to that effect.

Their main audience is console gamers, and if they say that PC gamers are over stretching their hardware and stuff like that, it just gets them more console fanboys imo.

Maybe because they thought it had the best graphics?

I'm not taking sides, because I don't really care. But you seem to be impying that Crysis should have won simpy because it has a more complex engine that requires gamers to have more powerful hardware. That's silly.
