I don't know any country that doesn't have laws against threatening statements, libel and slander.

United States. Threatening speech is highly protected in a number of areas, including stating intention to murder someone (my state is one of those), while libel and slander can be incredibly difficult to prove in court depending on how it's worded.

In which state is it legal to say that you intend to murder someone?

@br0kenrabbit: depends on what country your in and what kind of speech

To me, things said online are meaningless and don't mean nothing.

That's uhhh...about the dumbest thing I've read in a while.

You are responsible for your speech on the internet just as much as you are any other medium. This isn't opinion, it's law.

Sewer Shark? Are you on crack? That game looked like my vomit running down the sides of the sewer pipe. And that's almost the description on the box.

The only good 32X game I can think of is Mortal Kombat II. Best version, too, especially if you have big speakers hooked up.

The FMV genre is one of those things that is so bad that it's good. Sewer Shark is an experience like nothing else, good or bad. When was the last time a system had such a defining experience? The Sega CD library is probably the most unique. And thankfully some of those games ended up on the 3DO or they got upgraded versions for the 32X CD. But playing the Sega CD around launch is something I will always remember. It was such a strange time in video games...

Yeah I bought a Sega CD at launch. For full price. And the 32x, too. It's why I'm so bitter toward Sega.

I enjoy eating out more, but not fast food. I like to get served.

#2 Sega Genesis/CD/32X

How?

Sonic CD, Star Wars Arcade, FMV games (Prize Fighter, Sewer Shark, Night Trap, Tomcat Alley) Virtua Fighter... That 3 outlet hogging monstrosity belongs in a museum. It's a work of art

Sonic CD I'll give you, it's best Sonic. I even have the Steam version.

Less pixel density, yes, but the view distance also is a factor. I believe most production monitors are oled these days.

I see a stark difference in the animation. I also see the added effects of what games do on the pc side of things. They all still look somewhat awkward, but even games like Uncharted 4 nail the animations, which is more time, talent, and budget--regardless of tech numbers thats still a feat.

My eyes are like 3 feet from my monitor. I like it to fill my peripheral vision being a curved screen and all. Another benefit of desk-sitting.

I don't hunch, though. I have a reclining chair and a foot rest, so I lean back and scoot real close to the keyboard tray that drops down from under the desk. Save for a headrest I could sleep here.

Most games I play don't rely on that kind of animation. I like grand strategy (Civilization, Stellaris, Total War) and simulators (IL2, DCS, FSX) most of all. Beyond that, games like Kerbal Space Program, No Man's Sky, Banished, Cities: Skylines and Planet Coaster fill in the blanks.

You'll notice only a few games above are even available on consoles. You'll also notice a complete lack of FPS games. I put 20 years almost exclusively into FPS games, I'm tired of em. But on PC, there are so many niche genre that are well-served by AAA devs like 1C, Creative Assembly, Paradox and so on that I don't have to feel I'm missing out by excluding a popular genre.

And that's the real draw of the PC for me: If I can think of a type of game I want to play, I can find it. Somewhere.

Yeah, I care about graphics and performance. I don't want to have to give up one for the other, though, which is why I invest in my PC. It's hard to tell how much, or when one PC ended and another began, but if I'm starting to have to sacrifice graphics for performance I'll start looking for the bottleneck and take care of it.

Is PC gaming cheap? It depends on how you do it. I've built $800 gaming PCs for people who are happy with them for years afterward. Then you have people like me: "Did that stuttering or was it loading? Lemme quick load the last quick save and do it again. Dude, that's stutter...lemme pull the overlay up and see what my GPU/CPU usage is..."

Nobody can formulate an opinion that is there own? Still very curious to hear why people think what they do.

When comparing something that can be mathematically described, better = more/higher numbers. The question posted here wasn't 'which do you prefer'.

That being said, I can easily defend my preference for PC graphics: (monitor) denser pixel pitch and no stupid filters (GPU) adjustable everything from AA type to super sampling, if you know what you're doing in your GPU setting you can really sharping up how a game looks outside of the option offered in the game menus (Games) smooth and consistent frame rates lend more to the visual representation than most assume as does vsync/freesync, smooth AF texture graduation on angled surfaces, crisp clear text without a halo...

...but most of all its about those frame rates. 60FPS is not where I want to be. 100+ on a fast 144hz monitor, it's like butter.

Like butter.

Only we are not dealing with a flat, inanimate surface. We are dealing with an animated, interactive medium. By this logic increasing Half Life 2 to 8k@240fps would make it the best looking game on the market. Thats why Boxrect was using a hypothetical scenerio of mentioning which has better graphics, Avatar@720p or Metro@4k.

Some of the things i agree with. I mentioned framerate and resolution. I dont recall exactly what i said but it was basically that the resolution/framerate give more of a next gen feeling than the output visual, but also that it can make people somewhat stubborn. Going from 120fps to 30 IS staggering. I brought up less of a switch. Going from Mario Odyssey@60fps to BoTW IS very noticeable. But thats where people being overly stubborn comes in. The game still plays just fine. Twisted Metal 2, i think many would agree, plays better than the ps3 one which runs at a much higher clip.

Imo AA degrades the image. Im sure monitors have improved drastically, but a good oled display is still tops imo. Black is black. The issue any lcd faces is backlight. Things have improved but its still a far cry from black.

You really think metro is on the same level, in terms of character models and animation? I see things in metro that look better thanks to higher resolutions, but at times it just doesnt mesh well. Occassional higher resolutions can create artifacts or inconsistency in the images details.

Certain types of AA can degrade an image, which is why I mentioned that many graphics improvements can be had in the GPU software such as selecting AA type. Higher resolution changes the type of AA you should use, and even at 4K I'd want some edge work.

OLEDs have much less pixel density than LCDs due to Pentile pixel arrangement. You get one-third fewer subpixels. AKA you lose sharpness and clarity.

I haven't played Metro. I have watch GoW being played and didn't see anything I haven't seen in FC: Primal or ME:SoM or many other games before GoW.

I have never played a Pokemon game. I am not now nor have I ever been interested in playing Pokemon.
