Years ago the Dreamcast came out and dropped a big load on the N64 and PS1 in terms of graphics, and it was blatantly obvious in game after game. Compared to Madden on the Playstation, NFL 2K on the DC practically looked like real life (RIP NFL 2K series). I wanted a Dreamcast just so I could look at how awesome everything was (I had about zero dollars, so I didn't get one). Graphics just haven't felt like a difference-maker in years. I'm not blind. I can tell the difference between Battlefield V and Battlefield 1942. But I haven't said that heart-pounding, jaw-dropping I CAN'T BELIEVE A COMPUTER RENDERED THIS feeling since probably around 2007 or 2008. That's almost a decade and a half ago. The top game right now is I think Fortnite, which looks like it was made for an iPhone. Minecraft was pretty huge, too, and it looked like something made for a DOS PC. Do you know what the #1 game on Steam is? Counter-Strike: GO, which is a billion years old and looked dated the day it came out. But a million people are playing it this moment. I had a PS4, but the graphics were a big yawner. It's not like I was coming from a high-end PC. But man, there were an awful lot of cross-gen games. Rockstar is still milking GTAV for cash! I guess it was cool that the games all had gamma-correct lighting and ran in true HD. I guess. Yawn. I The last game I played on PS4 was Black Ops 4, which looked like dogshit compared to games a decade older than it due to Treyarch apparently hiring 8th-graders to do the visual design. I guess the big thing now is that 3080 card. Cyberpunk 2077 sure does look somewhat different with raytracing on! Wow! There's no point to buying a PS5 or Xbox...whatever. X? Series X? X Series X Mark X? They can render at 4K, while my 3-year-old PC kinda struggles, but so what? What do they really offer? Virtually all the games come out on every platform any more. Even many "exclusives" like Horizon Zero Dawn and Forza are on PC now. Part of this is me getting older, as I'm turning 40 this year. I'm basically a different person from the retard-slap-fight days of PVC. But if you look at the market trend, it's not just me. CS: GO came out in 2012. It's gonna turn 9 years old soon. Do you know what game was 9 years old when the PS3 launched? Quake. The first one.
