Fallout 4: Why All The Speculation Regarding Graphics Is Ridiculous

Stop complaining, it’s getting old already.

Fallout 4

As someone that is primarily a PC gamer, I typically enjoy a higher level of visual fidelity than console gamers unless the game receives a shoddy port. But does that mean that graphical fidelity alone is what makes me happy? Not at all. And nor should it make you happy.

The long and short of things is, some people are angry that Fallout 4 doesn’t look enough “next gen” for them. But the point to be noted is that Fallout has never been, and never will be, about looking beautiful. The series is simply not about cutting edge visuals or the one that will use the most advanced technology. And honestly, at this point we don’t even know what the game will actually look like in action. The trailer that we received recently may reflect the final product, and it might not. But that doesn’t matter.

When Fallout 3 came out, the visuals were not outstanding, when Fallout New Vegas launched things looked a little bit better, but nobody cared because the game was so fun and filled with content. Look at Skyrim. The game’s visuals are underwhelming even on a high end gaming PC, yet it’s one of the most played titles, purely because it had a ton of content and this is the precise reason why it’s often ranked amongst the top 10 last gen console games.

“But we’re the consumers, if it doesn’t look nice I won’t buy it!” Then you’re lying to yourself, you’ve been waiting a long time for this, non-“next gen” visuals or not, you’re going to buy it. Just please stop complaining about the game that is not even out yet. Fallout 4 is finally happening and it looks beautiful. Here’s an idea, anyone that is complaining about the game should be left outside their nearest vault when the missiles start to rain down.

    No sorry it’s not ridiculous. The game is at I’ll running on the 15 year old gamebryo the engine they started using in morrowind. The engine responsible for the terrible AI, the clunky combat, the bad animation and all the bugs. Bethesda needs to stop being cheap, stop tweaking the engine for better visuals and switch to an actual modern engine…seriously Bethesda….wtfaa

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Then don’t buy the game.

    • d0x360

      Then why are you here?

    • d0x360

      because I love gaming. Why are you here? Do you not what developers to stop being lazy and make better games?

    • Axel Tinus

      How about you try and make a game yourself then. Doubt you will come up with anything better

      Your loss

      Fallout 4 is NOT using the gamebyro engine. The engine they will be using is a newer version of the Creation Engine. You know the engine that created skyrim and allowed alot of modding freedom? Don’t make terrible claims without any evidence. At least give a link to support your claim. My evidence is in the E3 conference. Todd Howard said it himself.

      It’s gamebryo. They have been calling it the creation engine for a long time. Look in the credits of any modern Bethesda game. Creation engine/gamebryo. Do some research next time

    • Armin

      The creation engine BASED off of gamebyro. Skyrim had the creation engine. Creation isn’t fully gamebyro. Skyrim turned to be an amazing game and set high standards for the gaming industry. Creation =/= Gamebyro. Do some research next time. The link above even has proof from skyrim’s code.

      Keep living the lie friend. The only thing they modified was the rendering path to add modern features and they hacked in some extra physics.

    I, for one, have already happily pre-ordered 🙂

    • bigboy678

      Thank you for supporting a game industry that is getting lazier and lazier because they dont need to try anymore if they get your money before the game even comes out!!!

      Im sorry but people shouldnt be proud of preordering a game.
