    I feel sorry for all of you if you're going to play games for their graphics. I play them for fun, like you're meant to.
    No YOU DON'T DO THAT BECAUSE GAME LIKE MOVIE YOU WATCH MOVIE AND THEN PLAY NEXT GAME AFTER IT FINISHES IN 2 HOURS

    Why oh why can't it be a balance of both? And I just said there's nothing wrong with having iffy graphics. Like I said, some of my favourite games have shitty or below average graphics. It's the movement and the way the game plays as well as the overall general look of the game which is greatly lacking.

    Hey, remember how Morrowind was the Crysis of its time?
    This is true, I remember the Xbox version even had graphics options in the settings menu in case the game lagged. It was amazing.

    I don't know what type of world you're living in, but Skyrim is pretty much standard '11 graphics.

    I mean, if you think skyrim's graphics are shit, you'll probably have your aorta explode after looking at Gmod, or Half Life 2, both of which are pretty good games. And even today most people don't go around saying "Half Life 2 graphics are utter shit in a bin"

    Jesus, if skyrim is shit, then BF3 probably barely meets your standards, and nothing exceeds it.
    The thing is, half-life 2's engine is very adaptable. And half-life 2 looks great, FOR THE TIME. They didn't even need to make a new engine for the following games. Each new source game looks fantastic (at the time of release, not in retrospect) and it's still the same engine. Bethesda supposedly redid the engine for Skyrim, and it barely looks any better, as the fault lies with their developing and not their engine.

    Now I'm not a fanboy of the game, I literally had never played anything in the series before yesterday, but stop saying that it looks worse than Skyrim. Because it doesn't.
    Well that guy in the Uncharted 2 screenshot isn't casting any shadows, the AK is muddy, no AA...



    Oh yeah, look at those shitty tiling textures, stretched AC textures...

    What the fuck.

    CS: GO seems to be pretty shitty in terms of graphics, and espcially those reload animations.
    L4D2 would look bad if I was judging by (what I think would be) your standards.

    Most PS3 games run an edge based blur filter for a 'fake AA effect' because they are mostly incapable of doing proper AA in the first place

    I play for the great openness of the game, not graphics.

       this is uncharted 2   

    Edited:

    The AK47's texture is quite muddy too.
    1) He's standing in the way of the shadow
    2) that's a photograph of a screen

    Because he is obscuring them, look at the direction of the other shadows.

    And yet it manages to LOOK NICER than the oblivion shots. If I judged which to play by comparison both of those screenshots, Uncharted 2 looks more pleasing. What's your point again? Because mine's that even with a slightly better engine and a few graphical improvements here and there, their inability to make something look nice still shines through.

    Why are you still taking pics from Uncharted 2, it's from 2009, even if you convince other people it looks worse than Skyrim you've proved nothing except than a game from '11 looks only marginally better than it (it doesn't even).

    Regardless of opinions I trust in Bethesda from past games to produce a game regardless of visual quality that will keep me entertained for hours and hours on end. The bugs were just the comedic side and the modding community is so active, I went back to Oblivion so many times just because of the many mods that extended its game-play endlessly. There are so many little things within Oblivion that made me as a gamer enjoy playing it.

    So what you're pretty much doing is just stating that you think Skyrim looks like shit in comparison to other games out now and that it has only received minor upgrades since Oblivion. We get that, but what are you trying to achieve? Are you trying to convince people to cancel their pre-orders, or to not buy it in the first place?

    Because despite what the game may look like and how it might play, I'm sure it will still be fun. I'm not saying " durr I don't care if a game is just some low res cubes fighting eachother as long as it's fun "

    At the end of the day this is all that fucking matters. If you have fun playing a game, then mission accomplished for the developers. If you weren't fully immersed and picking your jaw up from the floor at every little thing in the game then boo-hoo sorry, find another game if this one didn't fully satisfy you.

    Imho you must be blind or have dirt in your eyes if you really think Skyrim looks like shit. I can agree with you saying that it isn't the most gorgeous game or has the best animations or is an all-around improvement from Skyrim, but it is very, VERY far from looking like shit.

    You're basically doing the same thing, scrutinizing small points in Skyrim's overall graphical style and aesthetic. But overall it doesn't look bad.

    When the first skyrim pictures were released, no one was saying it was shit, and now someone started this...

    So, has enough game comparing gone on? Can we go back to talking about something slightly less pointless and stupid? If you don't like Skyrim and aren't going to play it, then why are you in here?

    Why would you come in to a thread about something you don't like and talk negatively about it? It's pointless. You're going to get no where with your argument. You're not going to convince those who already like Skyrim to hate it along with you. -and those few that are here who already hate it, well, they already do.
    It seems to me that you're posting pointlessly. Which if I'm not mistaken is exactly what spam is. Pointless posts.

    This is poop nowadays:



    Does Skyrim look even REMOTELY close to being that bad? I think not. As I've already demonstrated, it looks ridiculously better than Oblivion. And by today's standards, Oblivion wouldn't even be THAT bad.

    Wow you have some serious issues.

    SKYRIM SCREENSHOTS ARE XBOX 360.
    THE SPECS ON A 360 ARE NEARLY IDENTICAL TO A PS3.

    -Call of Duty
    -Bad Company 2
    -Uncharted 2
    -Skyrim
    -Red Orchestra 2

    Are you telling me all the pictures released by bethesda to show how good the game looks are from a 360?

    Because that is such a good move by them, it really goes to show you the brilliant minds of bethesda truly are brilliant and have the most fantastic ideas

    It's okay though, I'm sure some modders will take the time to give the game proper textures and models and shaders and everything else bethesda suck at doing, as they have done with the last 4 games bethesda released
