Forums - Gaming Discussion - 7th to 8th gen is the smallest jump in graphics I have seen. Yep I will be the bad guy and say it.

Tell me this isn't a huge generational leap:




Damn! People can complain all that they want but this 8th gen leap is good enough


Sure it is good enough no one is doubting that. All I am saying its the smallest leap in comparison to other gens.

Completely agree



of course graphics tend to be closer and closer to reality, so it is more difficult to create huge graphical jumps. And graphics are the main reason for game's devellopement cost explosion.

I think this generation will not be about always getting better graphics but more feature such as persistent world, more advanced AI, longer single player campaign, better stories, more objects on screen... hopefully

I feel the opposite really, ps4 and xbone are a huge step up, its almost as big as xbox to xbox 360 to me, very impressed and your using tiny crappy screens if you compared side by side on a 1080p flat screen, i'm sure you would see a generational leap.

Just the mere fact that I need to blow up the pics place them side by side on a 1080p flat screen and scrutinize them closely proves that this is the smallest generational leap we have ever had. Other gens before the difference was night and day a thread like this would not have even been possible.

graphics will get better once developers become more familiar with the hardware.
In addition, as someone already mentioned, there comes a point where all they can do is add minute details that don't really make that much difference, or people don't notice..



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

I was thinking the same thing.  Randy is probably the best character on South Park.

probably? reported!!



Been saying this since last year. No one believed me. You are totally right though. The apologists will tell you next how we will only see good graphics in a couple of years.
Fact is, the improvement is only in lighting and special effects for the most part. You will not be able to see much of an improvement versus current gen unless you zoom in or post a blurry uncharted screenshot for comparison . :P



It's less about the graphics and more about the power. Online multiplayer will be able to host massive amounts of players. Game worlds will become much bigger. AI will improve. There will be improvements.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!
