I never realized how crappy console graphics were, until now.

My nephew got a PS4 for Christmas, and I let him hook it up so he could play his new games, and, man, Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 look incredibly terrible, and if that wasn't bad enough both games only ran in 30FPS.. You'd think terrible visuals would come with a high framerate, but nope, lol.. With that being said, I like RDR2's snow physics, but that's about it.. I had no idea the difference was THIS huge, Youtube comparisons are practically useless.. and this is coming from the perspective of somebody who games on a mid-ranged graphics card (RX 480), not a 1080 Ti. lol

@x_karen_x: Framerate is more important to me, but it couldn't even deliver on that, plus I was expecting it to look better since fanboys were hyping up Red Dead Redemption 2's graphics, but I should've known. lol

@Telekill: lol, nah, I started gaming in the PS1/PS2 era, and I've played plenty of games that came before my time, these graphics are "actually" horrible, they're barely a step up from the 360. lol

Most of the games are almost identical graphics wise (not modded) as most PC AAA titles are console ports.

The frame rate however is legit bad on most stuff on consoles.

Well I know you didn't play Black Ops 4 because it is a target 60FPS game. I know in Blackout mode it sometimes doesn't hit that number, but it is not a target 30 FPS game like you say it is. So you sir are a just full of shit!

this is a troll thread

I'm primarily a PC gamer, and played RDR2 on the BASE PS4 model, and that game looks amazing. God of War, Uncharted 4, the Forza Horizon games, all look fantastic on consoles.

30fps does suck but I can't take anyone seriously saying console graphics are crappy.

@neutrinoworks: Agreed. It impresses me what devs can get these consoles to do and art style goes a long way.

As someone whose played games like Battlefield 5, Division, and Assassin’s Creed Origins maxed on PC at 1440p, some of my favorite looking games are exclusive to PS4. Even Switch games have their charm.

The only thing that bugs me is the lower frame rate. Hoping 60 can be standard next gen.

Consoles do a better job with presentation than PC games, with few exceptions.

Halflife 2, Blizzard.

Many PC games run like shit and look artisticly bankrupt.

Almost every good looking game they have is a console port.

@freedomfreak: The funny thing is that they actually do look better, I can tell you never played games on a PC. lol

Texture quality on Red Dead Redemption 2 is absolute garbage, Black Ops 4 is even worse.. I find it incredibly hard to believe that any PC gamer would be impressed by these, especially Black Ops 4. lol

Anyone who knows what to expect from consoles should already be inform to expect 30fps and shouldn't be Bitching about graphics either. I only buy Consoles to play exclusives and everything else is gonna be played on my PC cause I get better framerates and graphics at the same time.

What a joke of a thread and the TC should known better to what expect out of a console.

Quick fact check:

Top Left hand corner.

60fps with minor dips to 57fps at worst points.

This was a base PS4.

Cool so I did miss that part of your paragraph stating you nephew owned the PS4 and you make up arguments about random console games based on pre-invented propaganda spread by PC fanboys.

I guess we both have our flaws.

Mine, an error of oversight

Yours, an intentional spread of misinformation to seek validation for your system of choice.

I think everything has it's pros and cons. I have a PS4 and an PC and while My PC has better performance, alot more PC games make me wonder why it release so horribly optimised, and going to the settings to adjust and correct it isn't something you need to worry about on consoles. I still love both platforms but each has a give and take.

Did watching your nephew play console only Red Dead Redemption 2 make you insecure and make you need to seek validation for your weak PC that an even cheaper all in one console seemed equal or better than?

I have a GTX 1060 and you aren't doing much better than PS4 graphics wise and there honestly isn't anything more impressive than RDR2 on PC. The closest thing is Assassins Creed Odyssey but RDR2 is simply a more visually impressive game.

Chances are you got butthurt when you saw what a $299 all in one system could do and you needed people to agree with you that your $700 system was far better even if it's trash compared to PC gamers who actually care about graphics and framerate.

lol but you have a 480, you not getting any superior graphics with that. You getting 1080p at 60fps with most games at console settings and that's it.

Only way you get slightly better graphics is if you turn up settings at the price of framerate.

Validation confirmed.

Pc graphics are overrated. Most of your pc dorks play on crappy lcd monitors anyway. Consoles plugged into a nice oled or plasma look amazing.
