    From the looks of it, Skyrim has nothing but low-res textures.

    It doesn't look like shit, you just have idioticly high standards.

    If you want amazing graphics and shit gameplay go play Crysis.

    You're a fucking moron. Get the fuck out if you hate Skyrim so much.

    That was XBOX footage. Unless you're a caveman, you'll realize how shitty console graphics are. Compare BF3's PC version to Xbox's PC version.

    HURR DURR LOW RESOLUTION TEXTURES

    That sword texture, that wolf's pelt, and the ruins in the background look pretty high-res to me.


    The leather armor, helmet and horns all look pretty good. Background is decent.


    You have to be partially blind to say that Skyrim doesn't have some nice textures in it. Generalizations like "all are shit textures" is something a 5th grader would say.

    Edited:

    Okay, nevermind just realized he's trolling after last post.

    I was really looking forward to this game, but after the recent gameplay videos I'm not sure I'll even buy it. I was hoping it would be what Oblivion promised to be, but the gameplay and graphics still look very much like Gamebryo.

    What recent gameplay videos? The 240p streams of the 360 version being played by idiots that can't even tie their own shoes or use a health potion?

    That's a horrible thing to base your opinion of a game off of.

    you're just flamebaiting now. He's got a point though, a 240p stream on top of it being the 360 version of the game is a terrible representation of anything graphically.

    I realise how backwards it is to nitpick at an open world game's graphics - but I do think it's a crucial thing for people who play the game for immersion. That said, I've always been able to look through Bethesda's presentation for the content - if Skyrim is just an extension of Oblivion's dated look, I really don't mind.

    The only recent gameplay footage we have is from streams of the xbox version, and they're almost always low quality.

    Are you even trying anymore?

    Skyrim may not have the best graphics(who gives a shit), but it has a solid aesthetic.

    Watch this, you might learn a thing or two.
    http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode...vs.-aesthetics

    I for one will be playing Skyrim on day one, regardless of any "low res textures" or "bad animations" that may crop up.
    -And I'm going to enjoy the shit out of it.

    Good, the things they've released so far showed they made at least some improvement on gamebryo, it'd be a shame if it was just a load of bs, although I still expect there'll be some bugs with the animations and other stuff more gamebreaking just cause it's bethesda

    okay first of all i don't expect it to be a big open world crysis. i do however expect it to be better than what i've seen. right now it looks like a 2007 game, and I'm basing that on the official gameplay videos as well.

    second, if you don't give a shit about the graphics, why have you been defending them for the last 2 pages? also "we"? speak for yourself, a lot of people give a shit about graphics.

    you keep emphasising that the graphics are going to be amazingly superior on the pc, but really doubt it. the lighting and shadows are still gonna be the same, and the animations are still gonna be bad, only the textures will be higher res. if the graphics on the pc are going to be so much more amazing, they would have released screenshots and videos from the pc version instead.

    This just in: game immersion is about aligning the player's motivations with the character's motivations, not about making object x cast shadows.

    No, it doesn't look like a 2007 game. How do you think it does? I'm honestly looking at all the same images you are, and I see them as hi-res and quality in most situations. Maybe I'm dumb, but I model shit for fun on the side, and seeing this stuff? I definitely appreciate the quality.

    the differences in potential processing power are massive enough to make a difference in light handling, not to mention max polycount and as you mentioned higher res textures, which would increase the fidelity of associated bump and normal mapping which just makes everything more awesome. Until we get tech specs and real screenshot comparisons of release-content and not some early alpha builds like some of the videos out there, I don't think there's room to make decisions.

    even if that does happen, I don't see why the developers wouldn't release any pc footage. wouldn't you want to display your game at it's highest graphical potential?

    i'm not too confident that pc version will look that much better, but I will be pleasantly surprised if it did.

    One problem with displaying a game at it's highest graphical potential is that most of your customers in this day and age are playing on a console. So if you give them this amazing and beautiful looking footage and screenshots then give them a low textured version for the console they will be annoyed and feel somewhat betrayed.

    Now I personally think all games that are for both PC and Consoles should have comparison screenshots and videos before the game is even out just to prove that the game is going to be better on one but also warn people that it may not look like that on their computer or console.

    I know this no real excuse but I still think the game looks nice.

    The only game I've ever seen that has demoed footage on a PC so far is BF3, and the problem with better footage than consoles is that some crazy-ass guy might sue Bethesda for false advertising.

    You don't need good graphics to be immersed in something anyway, people get immersed in books for fucks sake.
    Comparing books to video games on a presentation front is beyond flawed. Games are heavily visual and present their image of their story to you. Books present you the story, and you're meant to visualise everything yourself, with your interpretation of the story. Graphics are important in games for immersion because it's a failing when games aren't doing that well and it's a distraction.

    I think Skyrim looks pretty good, and I'm lucky in that I'm not so focused on graphics anyway. Many of my favourite games being SNES era. Contrary to what others have said, you're not retarded for thinking graphics matter, it's opinion based for starters and if that person values a high quality visual experience, and they feel Skyrim fails on that front, they're fully entitled to think so. Regardless of whether your or I disagree.
