Stargate, weather your right or wrong in any thread is not the point. Your rude, snide and have a poor attitude and attack anyone that disagrees with you on any subject. You attack peoples "character" and pretend everyone is attacking yours. They attack you because of your online attitude. It is apparent you welcome arguments and I'm not exaggerating.
You want proof of Cyrsis not being optimized properly? Here's a quick example: Company "A" designs a game that's "above all others" in graphics, AI and what not. Company "B" designs a game that is a bit lower in the graphics but is able to play on almost every up to date PC on market on high and ultra-high settings. Move forward a few weeks after release. Now Company "A"'s game starts getting large numbers of unhappy customers, but wow the graphics sure are pretty but there are still constant crashes, characters falling thru floors, glitches left and right. Company "B"'s game while not as pretty gets rave reviews and customers want more. The only thing people want from Company "A"'s game is patches to fix whatever is constantly making it crash, but of course patches to fix the issues are slow coming.
What could be the problem here? Did Company "A" rush the release of the ultimate game or is so uber awesome no one's PC can handle it? The simplest and more logical answer is the game was rushed and not tested properly before release. Now I understand that just is impossible to comprehend, but I bet it's the truth.
Now let's move on to Company "B". While the game has it's issues and what not, the buying public are generally happy with the game and really want more add-ons than patches. What ever problems the game is having is mostly over looked. The company realizes this and makes a patch to solve the issues and in a timely manner plus creating new add-on content that the players love.
Ok, so now did Company "B" take their time and test the game before release or were they just lucky the game worked well on gamers PC's? The simplest and more logical answer is the game was properly tested and not rushed like Company "A" game. The point of Company "A" being so ultimately uber awesome is not the question, but rather why did it run so poorly on any PC is was installed on? Be it low end or a high end gaming rig?
If it was optimized properly it would have work well on a low end or high end system given proper graphic settings, but it did not. The problem isn't how pretty the game looks, but why are people running high end video cards not getting the most out of the game? Why are new video cards released months after Company "A" game was released still not able to max out the settings? The simplest and more logical answer ..... the game was not properly optimized.
is really that hard to understand?
