The current console cycle (regrettable dictator of modern game graphics – hey, can we rebel using Twitter?) kicked off more than five years ago, and, well, it's seen better days. Our PCs, meanwhile, are like hulking pro athletes running around in the little leagues, easily rendering everything at ultra high spec while yawning and disinterestedly flipping through an old magazine. There's simply no sport in it. Fortunately, id Software's resident mega-brain John Carmack has our backs. At this point, though, even he may have hit a wall.
