Forums - Gaming Discussion - You dont realize how good this gen looks compared to last gen!

There is a big difference but I don't find the recognisable jump as big as from PS2/XB to PS360 and also not that important anymore.

Games like Forza Horizon 2 and PGR 4 look still ok on 360 compared to Forza Horizon 3 or Drive Club. Same With Witcher 2 vs 3, Uncharted 3 vs. 4 and so on...
Last gen is nothing great anymore but also nothing your eyes have to bleed from.

Still great to have better graphics, though (but art-style is more important, Zelda looks awesome with "bad" graphics)

You can build a spec that beats out another kit for a year or two, but then you're basically behind the curve by then.



               

I find a huge difference between PS3 and PS4. Im happy with the current state of affairs. Im only stressed by Greece's economy now.



Especially for Nintendo

The jump from the Wii to the Wii U with HD graphics and the NDS to 3DS is definitely impressive

PS4 and XOne games definitely look great though I haven't seen the Pro yet

Moving from the seventh to eighth gen for me:

Trading in my old sedan for a shiny new sports car with inferior gas mileage and poor handling.

Some Wii titles look a bit painful on large 1080p screens nowadays, dunno what it looks like on 4K.

I have fully appreciated the leap from PS3 to PS4 from day one. This was a generational leap, with ~10x the processing power and 16x increase in RAM. It is the same leap we have seen in every new PlayStation. The only difference is it took 7 years to achieve it as opposed to 5 - 6 years.

Games like Uncharted 4 and Horizan Zero Dawn are on the same level of improvement as we saw from PS2 to PS3. Many games that come out from now on will look much better than anything we ever had on PS3 or 360.

This is what console generations are supposed to look like. I hope we see the same thing from PS4 to PS5, but with people only asking for a 5x increase in processing power and a 2x increase in RAM, you are looking at Gamecube to Wii level improvement.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Even multiplat games look so much better, Just Cause 3, Far Cry 4 etc. Worlds are much more livelier.

Stuff isn't really that much baked in anymore, some slightly better AA and draw distance while being able to draw more vegetation. I was hoping for a lot more than that for this gen back before it started.

Yeah thats about it for Horizon(best looking game made yet), just slightly better looking than PS360 games.

People really need to go back and boot up an open world game from the first 3 years of ps3/360 and compare it to Horizon.  A monumental leap.  These people who deny it have obviously not played Horizon.  Which they should.  Best looking and one of the best open world games ever.  

 

An absolute must for action RPG fans.  Anyway as I said there's a huge jump and all for $249. And soon to be $200. You can't beat value like that anywhere else.
