So with the arrival of next gen\now current gen, we've seen amazing graphics of the likes The Order 1886, Assassin's Creed Syndicate
Batman Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4 and the upcoming Uncharted 4 a thief's end and Far Cry Primal look's amazing, hey PC may be the master race for some, but consoles still rule, hey look at the pinnacle of V for GTA V, it looks dam amazing, it mayjorly improves graphical quality and gameplay aspect's, take a look at that great screen shot below, amazing right, the mod is PC only, and is free to download at this link, and amazingly its only 943.66MB
So while these mods are great for PC, the console lack this kind of graphical quality and I have one question, why ?
This mod is only the size of 943.66MB this could easily be put to use on console's version of GTA V, a simple update could enable it
Now devs say "console's can't handle better graphics then PC" this is utterly untrue, sure they make game's that look pretty on consoles
But by adding a extra discs or a update to polish the graphics we would have better and almost the same graphics PC owner's have
Look here's a example for last gen, the Black Ops III developers said they could not fit the campaign in or even half the graphical quality
This is utterly untrue, they could have easily added extra discs for the campaign\multiplayer\ but they didn't want to bother with it, instead they gave last gen 360 and PS3 users a ugly broken multiplayer game it's a insult, hell even the first Cod4 looked better then that, they just wanted to force people to buy next gen consoles, sure some just say buy a PC but all of the good gaming rig's are expensive as hell, why spend 400$/€/£ on graphic cards and the whole ten works when you could just buy a 300$/€/£ console, I talked to a friend of mine who made his gaming PC and a good custom built PC will set you back 1400$\1500$ sure they preform better then consoles but we all don't have deep pockets, anyway look at wolfenstein the new order for 360 and PS3 they preformed fine, the lighting may be a little off but it looked great, and all because they added those extra discs, and not went ahead and said we can't do it because it won't all fit in one disc, look at ground zeros on last gen you can bearly tell the difference between them, and all in the work of one disc (the work of witchcraft this must be konjima)
Enough About last-gen your all here for next-gen well now its current-gen, thus we venture on the the tile of this ariticle, Graphical Power of the Titan's we call console's, Xenoblade Chronicles was a surprise for all Wii U players, because no one though it possible for the Wii U to support that kind of graphical quality, now let's get down to it, I'll make it plain and simple for all you reader's, enjoy
EA's Frostbite Engine, Crytek's CryEngine 3, Unreal Engine, are some of the big name's and graphical engine's developer's use, they're some of the best on show, show casing stunning graphics, but no graphical engine has even cone close to ultra realistic, even the one's that say they do, aren't that realistic you still can tell its 3D and not real, also don't get me wrong, I don't mind graphics, some of my favorite games are old well most of my favorite game's, so graphics are not a big deal for me, but I would love to see real graphics in games, and it is possible if devs would spend more time on polish, though it will not happen because they have a timeline to publish their game and polishing to the extent of ultra real would take too much time, maybe in the near future we will have ultra realistic game's, but for now we just need to be happy and thankful for these great graphics we have, hey after all lets not forget we did go from 8-bit gaming to story driven game's 3D gaming and we do have amazing worlds of the likes of Skyrim and of the Witcher 3,
so those are my thought's on the graphical apacts of gaming, be sure to follow me for all things gaming, and don't forget to check out some of my later post, I will be doing a article on what game's need to be remastered and what dertermines a game great, be sure to comment and you can also add me on facebook.
