Even leddit knows FO4 is bullshit. Even PC Ultra it looks like a 2006 game.
If they were jerking each other off any harder their dicks would burn into disformed stumps from the friction.
Because as we all know, we should believe everything anyone says on the internet without question.
This is what a 2006 game look like fucking faggot
This is what a 2007 game looks like.
>look ma, i can cherry-pick too!
Here's a post about that image I found pretty hilarious:
>These might be the lowest-res and lowest-poly buildings I've seen in a game this decade. The roofs are literally just two rectangles stuck inside each other, and the houses are just solid cubes.
NO GUYS I NEED MY MAXIMUM-POLY HOUSES GAME IMMERSION RUINED
This is what a 2006 game looks like.
This is probably a dumb way to think about it but I don't even mind because people will mod it anyway. Not that I'm going to play it soon anyway since I don't have a good PC
who else /pirate/ here?
The developers failed to deliver what they were promised, which makes be the customer the victim, so I will not be obligated to give them my money for false advertising, but as a compansation for my suffering they will let me pirate the game for free
I don't think the game looks bad, but holy shit the art style, it just doesn't look fallout-ish, sure the image may be fallout but the artstyle just doesn't fit. It feels almost cartoony but its not cartoony...
That's what possibly one of the most advanced game graphics engines of all time looked like in 2006, compared to what was available. It's nowhere near representative of where 2006 was graphically as a whole.
Here's an actual screenshot on max settings without any mods
Bethesda games have always been sub-par graphically, the allure is in the vast open worlds, overwhelming questing options, and fat waifu mods. So who cares?
It's on 8x AA m8
2007 AA was just that shit.
Literally everyone who says that crysis looks amazing are delusional retards who have only ogled at extremely modded screenshots.
Crysis looked pretty nice for 2007, yeah, but it has aged like shit.
Here's another one with keyboard prompts and a cursor
It's the PC version
I love how gameplay has just become utterly irrelevant to /v/
Nothing but graphics whores for all eternity
Even before skyrim came out at least people have to brains to wait until we had it in our hands and had played it to realize the gameplay was shit. Now days its TOR style shitposting before the ship even leaves the dock.
>Fallout 4 looks like a game from 2006
Okay well if pic related is the GOTY contender for 2015 then I think picking a year doesn't really mean much for graphical capabilities.
I make no excuses for Bethesda but /v/ has been shilling lots of pixellated indie shit as their GOTY choices [Hotline Miami 2, Blundertale, Duck Game and more].
It's not a blunder, I just think it's a little overrated.
Good characters, dialogue and music but not really worth a replay, and the True Pacifist final boss with rainbows and metal music really kinda killed the momentum for me.
The actual ending itself was good though.
>everything clearly defined
>crystal clear textures and lines
>Fallout 4 graphics
>windows look painted on
>dog is a blurry shit with no fur
>>everything clearly defined
>>crystal clear textures and lines
Didn't it run horribly on most setups? I think that's one of the few cases where the devs pushed it further than what the PC hardware could reasonably do like what happens on consoles all the time
>gameplay has just become utterly irrelevant
That's false though, loads of people have been complaining about the gameplay as well ever since they showed the new character development and dialog. Apart from those it's basically the same game as before
Only newfags say newfag.
looks fine to me
>caring enough about graphics in 2015 to make angry posts on 4chan and rebbit about it
it'll never end but i honestly just can't understand it anymore. game could have literally the exact same graphics as fallout 3 and i'd probably play it
Before you ask, no you do not fit in.
Lies are lies, through and through.
Looks better than most last gen games and bethesda games have always been behind graphically, the game has huge issues and yet people are more concerned about graphics shaking my head to be honest family
..so? have you played a video game? then you've basically played every other video game
I don't think you understand that a derivative experience is what people want from a bethesda game. they wnat it to be a bethesda game. that's what i want.
Find me a single professional review from the time that complained about graphics from Morrowind. Or why not Oblivion either.
literally don't care. if the game is fun and the story flows well, I'll have fun with it.
and seriously, you niggas spent over a month praising shit like undertale and julie or whatever that shit is called, but get buttravaged if fallout has a few jaggies and misplaced shadows.
Bethesda are getting lazier and lazier making their games since "modders will fix it :^)"
this is like building a shitty house and then demanding top dollar for it because "a handyman can fix it up :^)"
paid mods will haunt them--why the FUCK would you pay Bethesda $100 for this ugly shit when they expect to double-dip and charge you to mod it to NOT be shit, effectively making you pay $100 + $x, where x is how many overpriced shitty greedy little crap-mods you're stupid enough to pay for
Looking forward to quality Bethesda "writing"!
I have never seen so many people come out of the woodwork to defend a game on /v/. I mean, I could understand if we were on a normie site, but even the Kojimadrones weren't this desperate when MGSV was getting shat on. Either there are legitimate shills lurking on 4chan or Besthedrones are literally worse than Sonyggers.
It's like this board is composed of several brains!!!
>this is like building a shitty house and then demanding top dollar for it because "a handyman can fix it up :^)"
Honestly I would pay top dollar for a house if I knew I could call a handyman that for free fixes and changes whatever I want.
It's just sad for those of us who are older to see the young kids fall on the "I hate everything" bandwagon
Really if you have to pre-hate a bethesda game, what do you enjoy? the latest neptunia? shooting yourself in the cock with a staple gun?
As I said, the gamplay is basically the same apart from the changes to dialog and stats. You walk around shooting people, sometimes using VATS. There's no big ooh moments there
...so? there's no big ooh moments in video games for me anymore young anon.
nobody goes into a bethesda game for "big ooh moments" you act like people don't know what they're getting
>tfw the lighting is really fucking good in Fallout 4 so no need for ENB
>mods will fix the effects and textures within a month
>mods will fix the sound design within a week
>mods will fix the casual gameplay within a few months
>armor, character, and quest mods will add to the longevity of the game for years
>tfw the lighting is really fucking good in Fallout 4 so no need for ENB
n-no it's not!!!!! 2006!
i'm laughing so hard in these threads
>THE GRAPHICS ARE BAD DOESN'T THIS BOTHER YOU!!!
The lighting is better than any other game ever made.
It is true.
oh come on friend we both know that isn't true. there is early access shit out with far superior lighting systems.
if it ain't full dynamic it ain't in the discussion
lighting does look very good though, there is something realistic about it, cant pinpoint exactly what does it, maybe it has subsurface scattering?
then don't. I'm cool with mods improving games. gta4 is a 10/10 with mods.
i'm pretty sure you're a console kiddie, anyway.
>we shouldn't be reliant on ourselves and our own work and instead should expect things to be given to us in a perfect state
there seems to be an age component to this argument
its almost like the current generation of teens are known as the biggest pussies and most entitled kids who have ever lived?
We should enjoy mods because it's fun. Stay mad consolefriend.
How ignorant of graphics are you? There literally isn't a better lighting system that's ever been used in a game.
A game from 11, ELEVEN years ago with better lip flaps and talking animations than Fallout 4. And it's a fucking BIOWARE game too. Why the hell is this allowed?
>you act like people don't know what they're getting
I thought it was the opposite. I'm saying people do know what they're getting, which is why the gameplay isn't really worth mentioning since it's the same as before. Complaints about graphics make sense since you'd expect them to improve in a decade
If you care about graphics for a fallout game why do you like fallout in the first place? Fallout 3 and new vegas' graphics sucked dicks. You can't honestly say this game is going to be bad just because of graphics. If so, why do you care about fallout in the first place?
>You can't honestly say this game is going to be bad just because of graphics
Is anyone saying that? They're saying the graphics are bad, but is anyone saying the whole game is bad because of that?
I don't get why so many people are accepting shit graphics in this day and age.Witcher 3 shows what can be done and there's no excuse to keep letting Bethesda get away with half assed games that the community have to fix
It's called reaction, anon. Since most of the mainstream seen fallout fans are redditors and children claiming to be blowing loads over the graphics, it's only natural that shitposters and underage bait on /v/ go on for days over the graphics.
You must be joking. I played a seriously old as fuck rig and played the game on medium. It was a solid game with a ton of flair. Years later i finally can put it up to maximum and im still fucking amazed.
Yeah, they really didn't.
>this is 2005
Fallout games you nigger. Why does anyone care about the graphics for a fallout game. Look at fallout 3 and new Vegas compared to games that were released around their times. Historically, no ones ever praised fallout for its graphics. /v/ is full of faggots who will sucks a game dev's dick so long as they get their precious 60 fps. Piss off dumbass
Well, at least I know I'll be able to run it.
This is a 2006 game, and it looks better than FO4
>complaining about graphics
stop being so childish and look at the real issues such as oversimplification of what little RPG mechanics bethesda games already have and floaty camera controls or shitty dialogue wheels or how every character looks so oily
For starters, it actually has a decent texture quality and actual LIGHTING.
That's subjective, anon. You're just hipster, you hate fallout 4 because it makes you edgy. You're the elementary schooled who "always knew Santa wasn't real" or the kid who always did things first, like saw a boob or used a curse word. Go back to Reddit
desu you're wrong but I hope you have fun shitposting.
nah, that shit doesn't luckily (yet) exist in my country. Only poorfags with shit taste even become "hipsters", and morons take pride out of being one.
I dislike what I'm seeing so far of FO4, because it looks dumbed down yet again, and visually underwhelming for a 2015 AAA title. I wasn't too fond of FO3 / NV either because of similar consolization treatments, but this seems to take the bill.
I will, thanks.
That's PS4, PC has reflections in the water.
I don't even care a bit because mods will fix that. What things mods couldn't fix visually are fixed now, everything else will easily be improved.
Probably improperly aligned UV maps. Beth always drops the ball on those, it'll be like Skyrim where a modders just realigneds the UV maps and a few textures we previously thought were low res actually fit how they're supposed to and look much better
>caring about graphics
for what purpose? i mean between the hilariously shit dialogue system, the terrible perks, the lack of skills, the awful animations and dumbed down gameplay, there is PLENTY to talk about. but nah, lets all meme over "muh 2006 graphics"
here's the thing - if you're playing for graphics, you'd best have a top-end PC. if you don't, fuck right off. anyone who's anyone will be waiting for the inevitable graphical mods to come out with 4k textures and improved lighting and whatever meme ENB of the month is trending on the nexus. if you play on a console or a shitty 2011 computer then you have no place to talk about graphics.
>tfw your favorite RPG series is turned into a console shooter in order to appeal to CoD fags
I fucking love SoC, but if you really think it has better graphics than Fallout 4 you're literally blinded by your own autism, or you're trying too hard to fit in. Sure, it has some of the best lighting in any game, and its artstyle is great, but overall better graphics than Fallout 4? Get the fuck out.
I know this thread is about the graphics but it's the most current fuck-fallout one so whatever.
Have they reverted back to exclusive DR? It's the only relevant stat I can see on the armor pages, in the videos. The implementation of DT and different ammo types in NV is what helped take away the ridiculous bullet sponginess of 3, but it seems like they haven't learned from that at all.
It's not just graphics.
Bethesda has some serious coding and animation issues. They're too fucking lazy to scrap their engine, too.
Beth games are just a 30 FPS jank fest and I'm tired of it. When FO3 came out it seemed fine because it was on par for most games of the time. It's almost 2016. It's really time for change.
I am no Bethesda fan boi, quite the opposite desu senpai
However I know for a fact that Bethesda have never released a PC review copy before release date. Not only that but it's a fact that the game is unplayable on PC without a day one patch, won't even load up with the DL content
This picture is bullshit in my view (in terms of PC ultra etc), and my view is an educated one yo.
Even if this is just a console shot, the rest of game looks ham as fuck. I hate myself for getting hype for it, fucking Beth hype train, what a cunt of a thing
They weren't sub bar. Just mediocre. At the time, tons of RPGs had animations just as bad and the draw distance wasn't untypical considering the amount of detail and content in the world.
It was kinda badly optimized though.
This is a 2015 game
Still looks better then Fallout 4
Why are people actually saying FO4 doesn't look like shit?
Every Beth game since oblivion is sub-par graphics wise. The question is: do you care? Do you feel like the gameplay/immersion will be impacted?
this question is aimed at beth dronesIf graphics don't matter to you then why not just let this go? Fucking losers.
Oblivion was a shit game graphics wise. So was skyrim. I still put over 500 hours into skyrim alone. And I still know textures are fucking horrible in the release format .
There's even shit like every single texture in the game having the same amount of pixels. His means mammoths have incredibly low resolution (compared to scale) and shit like cats and plates end up in the 4k equivalent res .
Just fucking look at texture tweak mods. They plainly state why they're cutting resolution in cat textures in an HD mod
pro tip: beth did a piss poor job at optimization
Here's a game from 2004 with better lighting and use of technology.
mods will be available (almost surely behind a paywall) for consoles too and you're really thinking bethesda will do ANYTHING besides some retarded gamebreaking bugs that may be?
this is the first AAA game literally outsourced to the players and then sold back to them
Lighting is a masterpiece.
>posting GRAFFIX shots from a modded game
how about you post those classic late 2000's THQ textures, like the vanilla game actually has?
I love STALKER but you fanboys are ridiculous
>implying you even need to use a KB+M for 99% of FPS games
if it's stalker or an online FPS that's one thing, but even faster paced games like wofenstein TNO on uber isn't exactly hard.
now compare that screenshot to the FO4 shots.
Look at the aliasing on the reeds and the flat, boring texture on the ground.
You're so full of shit
Caring about graphics in a fallout game....
>but cmon how old is Stalker ?
Old enough. Even with mods there are still serious issues and cranky shit.
It's fun as fuck despite everything.
That's the point - ignore the developer - play the game. If 60 is too much, than pirate it.
There is no crusade here - no righteous cause. Bethesda gonna do what they do, and no amount of shit posting on 4chan will change that.
>That fog cut off
Holy shit why has nobody pointed this out yet?
THQ had nothing to do with development of STALKER. They were merely publishers for the first titles.
But since you so nicely asked, here's 100% vanilla shot from the Cordon.
>that means that the witcher 3 is 3.5 times bigger than skyrim
get fucked, mongoloid.
>All of the STALKER games look like ass
I'm having very hard time agreeing with you, dear Anon.
For me, no other game has been as photogenic as STALKER. The lighting is superb and texture quality nice even without mods (with exception of CoP's environments). 3D models are perhaps the most "dated", but do their job.
>linking directly to leddit
4chan, what happened to you?
Oh yeah, people were raving about morrowind graphics
Too bad the graphics were actually shit
Let's try comparing morrowind pc graphics to the graphics of final fantasy x a ps2 game game
Stop mentioning graphics alone.
The gameplay and animations are pisspoor. The only thing good coming from Bethesda are the concept artists whose ideas are executed with the deftness of a carpenter attempting to compose Tchaikovsky.
>Stalker is a shooter/horror game though.
...and Fallout nowadays is not?
STALKER pretty much is what FO3/NV tried to be.
Also GJ thinking that a genre should dictate the art style of a game. FO1&2 were very detailed and grim, even if it was all 2D and low-res.
I like characters models though even up to this day.
Can't say the same about weapons. I think it was retarded for LA devs to use even earlier weapons models when all the environment was just beautiful.
Shame graphics is the only good part about the mod.
>It doesn't have the atmosphere of Stalker, shadows and fear, because that's not the type of game.
Even FO3 and NV had rich atmosphere, try turning the shitty radio from time to time.
Anyone got the crysis slow mo nuke webm on the mountain
Why do people just focus on the graphics? The dialogue, gameplay, and mechanics of the game all looked incredibly worse in comparison to other games. The graphics are shit but the stuff that matters was even more awful compared to any other 2015 game.
>op linking reddit
>reddit linking neogaf
wtf is happening here?
>linking to Reddit is now tolerated
This must be the dumbest post I've seen today, good job.
>Bethesda game with shitty textures
Why is this still surprising anyone? Granted the recommended specs seem a bit high for what you're getting, but still this has been the norm since at least Oblivion.
Yea dude reddit totally doesn't get the same fucking traffic and types of people that we get, going to that website automatically means that it is bad.
Why don't you read the link and see people criticizing the game just as much as we are rather than shitposting? It's 2015 dude, Reddit is self-aware of their retarded circlejerks
More shooting. It feels more of a shooter than open game.
Weapons and suits aren't upgradeable.
Beginning is the hardest and the least fun part of the game.
Plot is interesting, but you probably spoiled it with CoP.
The best atmosphere in the series. Make sure to play with ZRP.
not him, but SoC is still my favorite of the bunch.
It's the ONLY game to even try to introduce the Zone's wonders / dangers to the player at steady pace, and you always got feeling of progression. Difficulty is also nicely balanced all around, especially compared to CoP which is very tame and calm (Bandits acting neutral? Really?).
Gameplay-wise it's a tad simpler than its sequels. There's no artifact detectors, no upgrading / repairing gear, and slot 1 is reserved for handguns only. That being said, it all kinda add to the atmosphere and even "realism" in a sense.
Enemies and weapons are largely the same. CoP just has a bit more of them.
And awful lighting. And terrible LOD. And what appears to be the same shitty gamebryo animations we've dealt with for a decade. I can only imagine how shitty the floaty, no impact melee is again.
>you will never get more reddit than this
>Beginning is the hardest and the least fun part of the game.
It's funny how the fanbase is split in this sense.
Some people LOVE the "hobo phase" and its unforgivingness, but I can understand why new players would feel overwhelmed and surprised by this steep learning curve.
This rough start was something I really missed in CoP. One reason I'm kind of a fan of Misery mod.
Yet another game graphically downsized because of inferior console hardware.
Good job, plebs. At least mods will fix it's shortcomings.
>inb4 consoles getting mods too
K, let's see how those modded 4k textures work out for you, and while maintaining your silky smooth 30fps. Also, no chance of you playing at 1440p. Stay mad.
I agree, you represent reddit exceptionally
See? Isn't it SATISFYING as fuck to finally evolve from being the mud-maggot to the next stage? I miss that stuff in modern games.
Oh, and in general, the "hobo phase" tends to refer to this undetermined period of time when you're trying to survive with shit-tier guns and minimalistic gear in general. The time when scavenging and playing things smart and careful is necessary. That's something CoP completely lacks, as it sends you off with gear that would take at least couple hours to collect in the previous STALKER games, all while also making things more calmer in other ways (like those bandits, or anomalies being limited to their own tiny clusters).
I've even done some "hobo only" challenge runs in the past, limiting my gear to jackets and double-barrels only, with any side arm and supplies I can find of course. Was pretty hectic, and you can't imagine the temptation to pick up that shiny new AK from the fallen enemies.
>spewing buzzwords and memes
m8 off yourself honestly. not that im against newfags but its kinda obvious by the shit you're spewing
"Go back to reddit" is what newfags and redditfags on 4chan say to people because they think it makes them fit in
So if I 100% think every thing about fallout 4 looks fine and even some of it looks great, how mad does that make /v/ overall? Let's be honest, this will most likely be goty. No matter how much you scream about the graphics or whine about the writing, this is your frontrunner. It will sell extremely great and this company you hate for no other reason than it's popular will continue to grow and make money.
Now tell me /v/ how fucking mad are you?
>linking to reddit for anything besides laughing at whores
Is this neo-/v/?
>tfw your series got saved instead of falling into the depths of game development limbo
The series would have ended at BoS, did you really want the series to die there with that embarrassment?
Since you're a shit poster, don't bother replying, I already know what you're going to say.
Not mad at all, in fact I agree with you mostly. My main issue is
>assuming it'll be a good game because of the title
Too early to tell. It could end up being steaming dogshit. It could not. Playing it will affect the outcome. 2015 has some heavy contesters for goty.
So they took out the magic system, but you can't honestly tell me the perk tree is just a rip off of skyrims.
Let's not even talk about the no level cap bullshit and enemies that won't scale farther than 80 at most.
Some people playing could leak some pictures.
This is what a newfag would say because they have no argument other than this shit which gets replied every time. I've been here since 2009, newfriend
>harold which is overly used by imgur/reddit
Woah, man. I wish deaths like these were in the Fallout games now, with current graphics. I wouldn't even do quests, I'd just shoot people and fap.
Kids today eh. Not understanding the difference between linear and open world sandbox stuff and what is realistically possible on these levels of scale.
Literally no understanding of what they're crying about. And getting trolled in the process.
I love Stalker but it doesn't seem fair to compare the modded version to vanilla Fallout 4, vanilla Stalker had a couple of ugly textures, specially on the weapons.
It does have some amazing lighting though.
Yeah man. It's such a pain in the ass to find games with good death animations. Mostly it's obscure pixel games and ero games. Is really a free roaming RPG with realistic, violent, animated deaths too much to ask for?
>Point out any Fallout 4 problem
>Don't worry, modders will fix it
Holy shit, this board is fucking trash now.
>Garbage collection stops
>Don't worry, someone will volunteer to clean it anyway.
Fuck anyone defending this shit
>its okay when black isle does it RIGHT
ftfy fàm :^)
>one glitch that was patched instead of something that was thought out and put into the game
GG DESU FAMILIA.
Theres a difference between featuring the dog a couple time in two separate videos and focusing a large portion of development on it and talking about it for 5 minutes when you're showcasing your fucking game.
Don't bother. STALKERfags are as bad as Witcherfags or Soulsdrones when it comes to talking about their games. The fanbases for all three are composed almost entirely of autists who masturbate to "ATMOSPHERE", slavaboos and legit Yuroslime mudracers.
This doesn't even look good anymore
The shadows are shit, the AA is shit, the texures are subpar, the tree trunks are literally a couple of polygons sticking out of the ground.
Okay, so i just played a little bit of SoC before it started crashing on me every time I tried to play it, and I haven't touched it since.
Is that the stalker to play? Is that the one those screenshots in your image are from? Are there any mods needed? And Is that the main stalker to play to get the stalker experience?
Lastly got any tips for breaking out of hobo mode?
Looks like shit desu, especially with them ugly barren steep hills
This has to be fake. It has already been confirmed that the disk for pc doesn't have all the content so riping and cracking isn't a possibility and Bethesda doesn't send out review copies for the PC.
No shit Sherlock. It's /bait/ general.
you are all a bunch of niggers.
you compare the graphics of open world games to on rails games, no shit the on rail games look better, they are smaller and are designed to be seen one way. its like comparing hotline Miami 2 to forza Motorsport™ 6.
fallout 4 looks better than mgs5 and crisis by a shitload
>Le Fallout 4 looks like a PS2 game maymay
Guys the game may not look like fucking Crysis 3 but it is not that bad, the biggest thing is that the gameplay is still going to be entertaining enough to sink some hours into even if the dialogue wheel is not that good. Just find a game to play and have fun instead of shit posting about it forever, seriously i feel like nobody on this shit board plays video games anyways.
Also pic related, its OP.
pic is vanilla warhead, no mods. Not bad considering it's almost a decade old.
You don't play stalker without mods. Get at least the starter pack from /vg/, and you're good to go for "vanilla experience". People actively discourage from using the Complete mod, but that's how I started the game for the first time. Yes, it's easier, but it's still fun. In fact, probably the least nerve inducing way to play, since some of the other mods made me pull my hair out, literally. Fuck Soup.
You know that devs can play before the release, right
Still, there are hardly any leaks from the dev cycle even for major game, so it's unlikely that it's a dev
So far I'm going with bait
Jesus Christ I saw that movie for the first time 3 days ago. Gave me nightmares.
I mean it's unlikely that dev/tester leaked the PC footage. They may be playing it for fun. I mean, how would you get the game otherwise? The retail requires additional download through steam and steam won't let you donwload shit until the release, it has to be some dev copy.
...I've seen this picture many times, and thought it was the only decent looking one
I always thought the road went downhill like this
Surely I-I can't be wrong, right?
It looks barely on par with 2011 games honestly. Go back and see homefront for reference.
I want to give them the ol' "gpus are stagnate" excuse but when there are people making gorgeous games on fucking unity there isn't much excuse with the money Bethesda has.
what were you doing on Reddit?
>console games still doesn't compare to old Crysis on PC
Man gaming sure went to the shitter with the 360 and ps3.
>why does every texture look smudged and flat?
>"It's stylistically designed to be that way."
They still play worse than with MKB, not to mention multiple button functions and context sensitive button functions. Nothing better than wanting to skin a gecko and throw a grenade instead.
>mfw my friend preordered and I get to hear him rage about how shit the game looks
>complains about casualization
>posts a game for casuals
>Those hard shadows
>Those low res spec maps

>All of that concrete
>THAT FUCKING FLAT-ASS CHAINLINK FENCE
Bethesda are like that child that is praised for everything they do, no matter how shit that child may be.
"You're really good at computers Timmy, I had no idea how to download a Google Chrome, you're so good to your grandmother", and then he fails an IT course.
No one is telling them to improve, not even "professional" reviewers, so they see no need in doing so.
and now for
crasscontrast a puddle from a game from 2005.
