"4K textures" aren't textures for 4K screens. It's just a size of 4096x4096.
Exactly, but you can't get that into people's head.
I remember when Rage came out with with it's 32k textures and people went: "Game has low res textures. It looks so bad when I get close to it". That wasn't the point of implementing it. It was to have unique textures across the surfaces and they did a great job with it. The places you visit have all a unique look to them.
