Oh man, I can't wait to get my hands on God of War Ragnarok, the previews are getting me hype.
I think the discourse that gets me the most is this 'it's just an expansion to GOW2018' or 'it's just a PS4 game'. I just...I don't even know what to say to and about these people and these bad takes. Like, there are so many counterfactuals that I don't even know where to start.
Most ironically, this whole discourse about the Xbox Series S holding back new-gen consoles (or just any cross-generational games doing that) is really dumb. Like, do people not know that PC has been successfully scaling games up and down effectively for decades and they are often considered the pinnacle of performance and versatility. PS4, Xbox One, Series S are NOT HOLDING BACK GAMES. The developers might be handicapping the games for parity but the consoles themselves are absolutely not the problem. Complain to the devs for their decisions about parity, not the consoles themselves. If a dev doesn't want to put in the effort to scale, that's their problem, but I also imagine they aren't likely the developers to work hard to get the most out of the new hardware so the point is moot.
I don't even want to get into this conversation about 30fps vs 60fps. 30 is fine. Going form 60 to 30 sucks for like half an hour, but then your eyes adjust. I started playing Bloodborne this month (Because ooooooo spooky month) and it was jarring...until I made it halfway through Central Yharnam. then it was completely normal and I genuinely didn't notice anymore. Not until I went back to a 60fps game. Point is on this one, 30 is fine. 60 is better. Both are viable. consistency is more important. Framerates (And graphics in general) are not that important, they're a nice bonus.
I need to go hang with my trophy-hunting buddy again. he's just all positivity and I need that right now. Gamers suck. (At lease the shitty entitled ones, who happen to also be the loudest)
