I'm alone here but the games look pretty good to me. I still remember being absolutely blown away when I first played Giants:Citizen Kabuto and today's games are way different. I love lots of FSAA and ANISO so I'll take console ports and all. I still play DOS games to this day, so that may be why I'm so easily pleased.

You kids are desensitized....lol. Nothing can satisfy you anymore. Go find an old NES and plug it into your tv and play that for hours, then complain about today's games and "lame" console graphics. (I still play my NES)

I'm getting old at 27.

If they bring Alan Wake to PC then maybe I'll believe it.

I mean come on. Remedy works on this amazing engine that was specifically targeted at high end enthusiast PCs only for it to be butchered to work on a console at 30 fps.

I'm calling shens as well. MS has made this promise so many times over I can't help of thinking about the boy who cried wolf... I'm gonna' believe it when I see it.

If they're sincere than I'm all for this- I'd love to see the PC back on top again. I just don't think it's gonna' happen. At least not anytime soon. However, I'd love to be wrong.

How long has MS been saying it? Cmon, we all know here that M$ is full of **** when it comes to PC gaming.

I will believe it when I see it, and Fable 3 doesn't count.

360 must be getting near the end of it's life span and the next Xbox just isn't working out. ::

If they bring Alan Wake to PC before the year is out then they'll have made a good step toward correcting their mistakes over the last few years. It won't be enough though.

I agree with You. I am absolutly blown away by most of games graphics on my pc and 360. Even HL2 is still amazing for me. And new games are just incredible! And it sure wont get worse than first Unreal so its win for me..


Btw. I Remember that feeling of jaw dropping when running Unreal on release for first time on my new 3dfx Voodoo! Waterfall, shining floor, water... EVERYTHING!

Yea... Some here have ultra mega pcs for thousands of dollars and are whinning for graphics being bad. And no developer will release game that uses power of 2% of pcs on the market. Most of pc's arent even as relatively powerfull as 360

I'm happy with pretty much any game's graphics as long as I can run it at native res and have some AA on it. Jaggies are the only thing I really hate with graphics... well, and really bad pop-in I guess.
