The appeal of new whiz bang graphics wore off for me a long time ago. I like games that are fun to play and keep playing. Plus I'm pretty tired of FPS's. Waiting for Diablo 3 and the rest of Starcraft 2 to come out and ill be good for the next couple years at least.

You can have all the "GRAFICKS ARE EVERYTHING N00B!" story-less twitch fest FPS's, I'm done. Although I would like to see something like the Samaritan demo made into a Deus Ex type game.

What the hell are you doing playing games that modern and mainstream if you don't need good graphics?

I second that question

You must have missed the part where I said I like playing games that are FUN.

You know what's more fun to me than all the Crysis/Battlefield/ZOMG TEH GRAFFICKS ARE TEH ONLY THING N00B!! games?

Sonic the Hedgehog.

In fact I've played more hours of Hex Defense on my phone than Battlefield 3.

I'm not saying that I don't WANT good graphics, just I have more fun playing Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge(which I still play to this day) then RAGE.

I don't think you'll find many people here who want another game like the type you describe. Just look at the comments below. This was hardly a news post all about graphics. The main story was about a PC exclusive title. There are plenty of advantages to PCs aside from their graphics.

So nobody likes StarCraft 2 or Diablo 3? Hmmm, that's news to me.

I understand theirs more to PC games than just graphics.....but graphics are by far the only thing people seem to care about. All I hope is its a GOOD FUN game and not just a crappy bug riddled mess of a FPS(which it WILL BE A FPS)with no story but OHH LOOK AT THE PRETTY GRAPHICS! that's all.

Minecraft, Terraria, Dear Esther, World of Goo, TF2, Runescape, WoW, LoL, and Farmville are all clearly only popular for their incredible graphics.

"but graphics are by far the only thing people seem to care about."

No way man. It's something people love to talk about, but if you read any gaming press, and even the comments on this newspost, you'll see people are far more interested in good games. That's all I was saying.

I'll wait and see what it is. Epic is another one of those companies I love to hate.

I mean hey, if I know how to swap out my videocard, I know how to torrent and am a pirate, right?

Hilarity

Fuck multiplayer. Give us a 15hr+ single player shooter with an actual plot that will make my upcoming 3570K + 680 squeal. When shooters didn't finish in 5 hrs and were not all military clones. Something like Deus Ex (the original) or Bioshock 1 or even Half Life 2. Make it Directx 11/10 only with the full compliment of DirectX 11 API features and cut XP out of the picture too. Then I'll consider buying it, otherwise I'll hit up NZBMatrix instead when it comes out.

I'm amused you didn't list Unreal in that.

Morete

Thank you! I've never liked multiplayer and probably never will (with the exception of some PTWMMOFPS's.) Give me a good single player @$60-$70 and I'll buy ten and give the rest of them to online friends for good measure. Even a 6 to 8 player team vs. AI would be awesome.

I here it's going to be a 4-player team co-op in the vein of Left 4 Dead wherein the goal is to get to your local electronics store and purchase an XBox so that you can buy more Epic Games titles.

@Morete coming from Epic, I seriously doubt it. If its anything like Samaritan graphics it will be packing some serious tessellation.

avatar

Morete

Hmmm... Didn't we hear something like this from DICE awhile back? Will DX11 on this be spread on like some poorly optimized thin layered frosting on a ported to console cake?

avatar

terracide

I have been waiting ... SO LONG TO HEAR THIS NEWS!!!!!!!!!!

Please bring back Unreal! I want to go back to Na Pali and see the Skaarj, Nali ,Izinagi, etc all over again.

avatar

Khoiboi

nah... I would prefer for them to NOT make another Unreal. I loved the originals, and right now, that's how it'll stay. I might have nostalgia for the series or whatever, but if they bring it back, it'll probably not be "as good as" our expectations tell us it's going to be.

I would be so pumped for a f2p mmo based on the Pokemon Universe, but not from Epic, lol.

Same here

I would love to see a new Unreal (single player with multiplayer) that is reminiscent of the original Unreal. Til this day, Unreal is by far one of the best first person shooters I've ever played. The maps, music, and game play was very unique. You really felt like you were alone.

...and I'm not talkin, Unreal Tournament...I mean Unreal.

Ridnarhtim

Same. That experience of being stranded on a strange planet, where almost everything is hostile, everything is so overwhelming and you feel so lost is incomparable to me. I've never experienced a place as real and haunting as Na Pali.
