Are you surprised? They are console games after all. Oblivion was made for 360 and ported, it looked amazing as the 360 was new, we need to wait for new consoles for another leap.

Besides, graphics aren't the end all. If the game world is fun, and has some great gameplay isn't that something to get excited about? (The Fallout games have been this)

So you think PC will have decent gfx options and textures this time? I'm betting not, have to wait for mods again.

Oblivion was made on the PC first and ported to the consoles actually. It was superior on the PC as well. Oblivion looks even more superior now because you can AA with HDR on the PC. The console version looks crap, with x4 AF.

No, as I said, it's a console port, so don't expect much this time round. Sure it'll look best on PC, but I can't imagine it looking better than a PC exclusive. So I don't expect it. What we will have is still a great game if we can judge from the Fallout series, especially if they are using Fallouts levelling system.

Other way round, how else do you explain the giant UI? and UI navigation. I'm not disputing the PC version looking the best (see my previous post), I'm just saying, I don't expect to be floored by how good it looks when it's made for the current consoles.

There is nothing to say it was a console port and it was cutting edge on the PC at the time

There is more evidence to say it's made for console than PC especially if you have played Morrowind it's quite obvious really.

It was cutting edge. At the time 360 had equal to or better graphics, now PC has surpassed, but as the series is made for console we have to wait for those jaw dropping moments.

Me too. Gonna try the level mod that's out there that changes it to more of a standard RPG leveling system.

hmm... hopefully PC will get bump map and parallax mapped textures. The flat 2d looking ground surface @ 1:28 in the video looks AWFUL.
