Reading an earlier post I have to agree saying that the environment can look real, but if the animation and details in the game look fake, then theres no advancements in the technology. Thinking seriously, what's the point of having a graphic card and CPU with some uber spec, when the only thing that uses the power is the environment? (excluding anims and AI) For example, Half Life 2 was an amazing game at the time of release, even now it's not doing so bad. But the crossbow that shoots out the searing metal straws kills the Combine at any point on the body, now if they made the game so that if I shot the combine in the hand, and nailed him to the wall, he'd be wailing and screaming and the animations showing him writhing in pain instead of a dull death. I know this may not tie into the graphical component of things, but who wants to play a beautiful game where whatever moves is a pain to look at?
Crysis does look absolutely amazing though, the realism, though in 10 years time will be a fossil, is significantly better than what we have today. I can't compare any game to the realism that Crysis can offer. (in terms of visuals) The crysis engine itself has virtually brought a paradigm shift into the world of computer graphics and visuals.
In relation to the thread, yes crysis is amazing, and does bring out the latest in current technology. But I wouldn't be so adamant that we have reached our limits, I'm sure that right now somewhere in the middle of nowhere in a room surrounded by thousands of terraflops of power are a group of people already setting into motion the wheels of visual design in 3D graphics engines.
I thought I might as well post something since as I'm apart of this union, and all I could really think of posting was an incident that occurred back when I was 7 or 8.
I live in Australia, to be specific Melbourne. And at the time, it was during the week of the Albert Park F1 race, and in Dandenong, a local suburb, a new Kmart store had opened. And by some God given chance, I was there a week before and entered a drawing competition for hotwheels. Funny thing was I wasn't expecting to win, and I did. And believe it or not, the prize was too meet Schumi. I at the time, being a dull child, did not realise who this man was.
And recently I found a poster, big HotWheels poster, and on it said, Michael best wishes Michael. I was wondering who gave it to me, and so my grandma told me of what happened. Before i found it I had an idea that I received from someone really big, because so many people were there. Anyway, Schumi got down on his knees to reach me, and congratulated me, and someone asked if I had anything to say to him at the time. This was all that came out of my mouth, "You not as pretty here as you are in real life." He went beet red. And I can still see his red face. Honestly I still don't know why I said that...
That's my story, believe it or not. It was about 9 years ago.
I love God because I'm still alive after everything I've been through.
To answer the point of this thread, if there even is one. Jesus is apart of God. Just like you are apart of your father, in a genetical sense.

Make games out of movies? 300 maybe?
