I am 39 years old. I have been playing video games a long time now. I read so many interesting posts declaring that Crysis 2 is, or is not, the best looking game out there. So, here is my humble opinion on the subject.
When I was a kid, I played games on the Intellivision. I played bowling a lot. My character was a purple combination of blocks. The bowling ball had at least 8 corners. And yet, I was amazed.
Later on, my brother and I received a Commodore 64. There was a game out there called The Forbidden Forest. In it, I could see my blocky character (who now had 3 colors) fight spiders, bees and dragons. When you finished a level, he would dance on a midi file (I still remember it). I was amazed.
Then, I got a Sega. The first game I popped in was The Ren and Stimpy I don't remember what. The characters were looking like they were supposed to. I was amazed.
After a long break, I came back to gaming with the Wii. I played a lot of games and the graphics looked sharp and colorful. I was amazed.
The next step was the 360. I bought Alan Wake and the graphics really blew me away. I could almost not believe the quality troughout the whole game.
And lastly, I acquired an HDTV and bought Crysis 2. For the first time, I was not only amazed, but almost speachless. For me, these graphics are such a HUGE improvment over what I saw in my life that I can only say : Good Job to the devs. And now, as I play this amazing game, I wonder what's next. So, in the end, Crysis 2 graphics are for me the most awesome thing I have seen in gaming. That's it. Thanks for reading.
