"Vastly superior experience". Thanks for the laugh.
A better way to phrase it would be it's slightly better but not a slightly better experience, just slightly better. It's the same as saying GTA5 was vastly better experience on ps4 than ps3 or vastly better experience Xbox 1 than x360 and having played all but the x1 version I can definetively say even with first person mode and the doubled FPS along with all the improvments it was just slightly better. Not a better experience just slightly better. The x1x version is slightly better to a much smaller degree (MUCH smaller than that example), one that is not noticeable unless you put them side by side.
Again, thank you for the chuckle.
Graphics have gotten so good that I don't think there's anywhere to go outside of VR/Hologram play. I know we said 20 years ago that some games looked 'photorealistic', but we knew that was just a phrase meaning it imitated life well; nobody actually thought Snake looked like a real person.
But now? We have Ellie and Joel and Arthur Morgan and Nathan Drake and various other characters that look so close to real that there's not really much of a point in focusing more effort on graphics. All we can do now is work on framerate, performance, optimization, and resolution. Even then, the difference between HD and UHD isn't that much of a difference. Much like the shift from DVD to Blu-Ray, the difference isn't that big. It's there, you can see it, but I wouldn't say that it enhances the experience.
I'd be happy if we had the PS4/Switch/Xbox One forever but I know that won't happen. Then again, two of my top 5 favorite games this year have been Octopath Traveler and Mega Man 11, so what do I know about graphical fidelity?
I got it all, baby!
