2011... Battlefield 3 was all the hype. I was sick of COD. I wanted to try a new FPS. The trailers looked great.
But then the actual game came out. It looked nothing like the gameplay trailers, which were shown running on PCs. BF3 looked bland on honestly, not very good on consoles.
Then I played the multiplayer and it just wasnt what it shouldve been, due to the limited 32 player battles on maps that were built for 64 players. The maps felt empty and boring... though I'm sure they were great on PC with double the player count.
Uncharted 3 came out around the same time as BF3. Uncharted 2 was a HUGE upgrade over the first Uncharted. I was expecting U3 to see some major improvements, but the graphics were pretty much the same as U2. The fire effects and the sand looked great, but the rest of the graphics were barely distinguishable from U2.
I knew I was ready for next-gen in 2011..... I can't wait for the PS4 this holiday season!!!
When did you know you were ready for next-gen?
