Default Consolization of pc games

This month has been a frustrating one for us pc gamers, with the release of Dragon Age 2 and Crysis 2 being dissapointments.But after buying Crysis 2 for pc yesterday it really frustrates me to see what developers are doing with the medium.This dumbing down of the product for mass market has got to stop, i want my games for pc like they used to be.To me it just reeks of a quick buck and lack of a real commitment to delivering a a + quality product that pc gamers really deserve.

p.s... arghh i miss the quick save feature {crysis 2}

You have it in Dragon Age 2. Don't use it though, it will invest your machine with consolitis, or something

yeah i'm on a 260 GT card and have no reason to upgrade just yet for PC gaming.

To be honest, i've not seen graphics on my PC like I have on my PS3. Graphically the PS3, some games, surpass the PC, a 4 year old system !

I'll probably upgrade for Skyrim and Guild Wars II and Rage. The future isnt bleak, you also have Homefront and Brink.

well then buy 100,000 copies of each pc game instead of just buying 1 copy, so the developers won't dumb things down because of the console versions selling more.

In the office (my day job is a graphics programmer) we've been kicking around some thoughts and we've come to the conclusion that unless MS do something the next generation of consoles will, if not kill out right, leave PC gaming for anything outside of MMO, RTS, TBS and 'facebook games' on life support.

Right now the PC has a Mhz and GPU advantage however is suffers from moving hardware targets and a high draw call overhead. The former makes it a pain to dev for (I've spent the last couple of weeks now working around hardware/driver bugs for our game) and the latter we have to soak up and just deal with due to the single thread Mhz advantage PCs still have.

Jump forward 3 years which is when most people seem to think the next consoles will hit/have it; consoles will have more and FASTER cores (and with the Mhz race over PCs wont be out pacing them), DX11+ GPUs as standard and the ability to construct draw lists over multiple threads thus making submission/draw faster meaning more draw calls and more stuff on screen and looking better.

Now, unless MS and the IHVs do something the PC is likely to still be restricted to single threaded draw calls (right now DX11's multi-threaded command list construction either slows things down on AMD hardware or effectively loses you a CPU core on NV hardware) and suddenly regardless of how fast your GPU is the consoles are blowing you out of the water draw call wise meaning the PC can't match a console in 'stuff on screen'.

We are already kinda at this point, the PC is only 'saved' by having the Mhz advantage but unless something changes that advantage will go away pretty quickly.

(Right now MS are blaming the IHVs and the IHVs are blaming MS and there is crazy talk about ditching DX and going 'to the metal' which I don't think anyone has really thought about as hard as they should have done. In short, it's a bit of a mess...)

You can't save in Crysis 2? I mean I knew the graphics are worse than Crysis 1 so that the XBox could handle them, but they're now catering to retards by removing the save anywhere feature?

But I guess that's to be expected, considering that it's an FPS made for gamepads...

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

^ You mean like Far Cry? The (initial) lack of quick saves was the only thing that made it difficult so I don't know how quick saves would make a game more 'hardcore'.

Crysis also had gamepad support and Crysis 2 has the exact same controls.

Kinda makes you wish Microsoft had waited/delayed the XBox 360 to 2008 so it could have had a Radeon 3870 or 4870/90 GPU instead so that the minimum requirements would have been, well much higher doesn't it?

PS word is Microsoft is waiting until 2015 for the next gen...

Yes consolity and simplicity is strong on the AAA PC game market now, but theres always the indie game developers to make me have hope on PC gaming.

i bought my self a 480 gtx 3 months ago at 500 bucks US.

i feel kinda lame to do this upgrade, solding the 4890 for the 480 gtx , which cost me about 500 bucks.

amazing i have a 480gtx just for PHotoshop, Web browsing. And really 0 hours of gaming since i bought it.

so in my opinion, it is kinda a waste to do any upgrade to the pc nowaday, Your dont' need anything above a 8800gtx and a core2dual setup, since game itself is really not that interesting anymore.

Very true, I would've never considered getting a new computer if my desktop wasn't beginning to get screwy on me. Radeon 4850 512MB runs every game I throw at it perfectly at 1080p.

Dumbing down is not equal to consolization. It's just dumbing down for the ADD generation. That's it. WoW has been dumbed down and it's a PC title.

Don't buy games that are console ports. Pirate them.

Thank goodness for pirates..........I've understood/endorsed this for awhile now. Spending thousands on uber componants to play games and/or in combination with photo suite and other applications, really puts us in this position where one feels cornered to commit crime..It goes hand in hand, no? But, playing it safe, is where one needs to accept the corrupt world of humanity.............get your hotdogs HERE. only here

It should exist a distinction, because is not fair for the small teams to have a giant AAA developer being called indie.
