That's not it at all.

I've found the Far Cry and Crysis gameplay and writing to be dull at best, bordering on boring at points.

They are the complete opposite of Valve. Valve manage to produce games that border on movies with epic storylines, and gameplay that never gets dull, and manage to make games that look good without needing a rediculously powerful machine.

Yes, Crysis looks good, but that's not what makes a game.

lol the Crysis story may have been dull, but Far Crys wasnt. and for me, both game's gameplay was awesome. i dont play Far Cry anymore coz i over-played it when it came out, but i still play Crysis through and through. especially Warhead on Delta mode.

of course its no comparison to Half-Life, but then what is? if you consider all the other FPS games that have come out in the last few years, the Crytek games are still ranked near the top.

but to each his own. i would much rather enjoy my games and apprecaite what they are, then spend my time thinking about negative ways to judge them. its much easier to love then to hate, you dont need an excuse to love something.

The ps3 uses an ATI graphics card. Doesn't that mean that Cryengine 2 will have to be optomized for ATI instead of Nvidia?

No more TWIMTBP?

The PS3 uses an nVidia GPU, and the 360 uses an ATi GPU.

Ya; worse than warhead, because Crytek has already stated it won't be doing any more PC exclusive titles. And there sure as hell ain't no way that CryEngine 2 will run on any console.

Because of piracy?
Console games get pirated too like what happened 2 weeks before Fallout 3's launch.

But it's still not nearly as bad as PC piracy.

The funny thing is, before Warhead was released, Crytek said Warhead was not going to be PC exclusive. Well, Warhead turned out to be PC exclusive.
