    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 May 2019

    The_Liquid_Laser said: mZuzek said: You're not easily impressed, are you? Heh, maybe.  It might be that I'm impressed by different things though.  Part of the diminishing returns in generation 8 is that higher resolution can make things look worse.  Like I played Spider-Man last year, and the city looked beautiful but the people looked terrible. ...

    goopy20 said: I haven't. Sure, there were a few games on the ps3 that still look great today like Uncharted 2. But that is just because developers like Naughty Dog are masters at working around hardware limitations and kept the level design simple. However, compare Red Dead Redemption to RDR2 and the difference is pretty obvious....

    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 May 2019

    It was definitely the 7th generation for me. So around 2005 or 2006. Sure the games looked better than what was on the Gamecube or Xbox, but not by that much. And more often then not, the increased focus on graphics also seemed to come with less in game content. I want more game modes, more levels, more options. I don't care if the graphics have to take a hit to get that....

    The Blues advance and now they face Dallas. To be honest, I thought Nashville would be a much easier match up. I was also hoping that series would go the full 7 games. Should be a closely contested match up....

    Are exclusives anti-consumer?

    Kirby007 Reviews #2 Boom Blox

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 April 2019

    COKTOE said: One of the games I would have bought with the Wii console had I been able to find one. Went to great lengths to secure one for about a year before I gave up for good. I can't imagine the shortages being any worse in other locations around the globe. Always wanted to try Bloom Blox but never did. Doubt I'll get around to it at this point.
