I...don't think I could've said it better myself.

I haven't preordered a game since 2008. Just tired of getting screwed over with stuff like this. I am tired of every single PC game being a half baked port from console. I have almost given up on the PC gaming community. May have to start investing my time, money and energy into other things.

You seem to be quite well-informed on a game you haven't bought.

Also, since when was good art direction a bad thing?
Also, these are valid criticisms (most of them anyways) but I thought we bought games in order to play them; not to nitpick what happens behind the scenes when the end result is something as good-looking as Crysis 2 is.

Crysis 2 isnt THAT great. When crysis came out it was MILES ahead graphic wise of ANYTHING else. That is what we were hoping for again. And yes he is well informed because he likes to make an educated buy of a game rather than turning into a zombie and buying a game because it was hyped up and turns out to hate it.

Ridiculous bloom levels? I never thought it was ridiculous. Now BC2, that is ridiculous bloom levels. Whether it is tricks to make you think the graphics are better or not, it still looks good while playing. I don't remember the last time I was playing a game and walked up to every little thing within a few inches and said, "hey, that doesn't look right". I'm to busy playing the game to do that. I think it looks great (not the best, but very good). Wait till we get mods for it. Crysis 1 looked 100x better after the mods came out than it did vanilla.

I doesn't look good. It looks good in screenshots, and it looks great for a console game, but if you actually watch footage or play the game it looks mediocre.

How exactly you enjoy and play games are probably subjective.

Sometimes it's a matter of principle too. Like not supporting a game completely sub par to what you reasonably expected.
