Photo-realistic graphics and shit, you know it's going to happen.

Source engine was flawless and had the most revolutionary physics system in the first person shooter since Trespasser.

Assuming HL3 is going to be on valves new engine, we can expect this coming generation to continue the current golden age for another 5-6 years.

Left4Dead 3, Counter Strike 2014, Gary's Mod 2.

I can't even handle it.

Okay.

Beach, the fuck you know about Trespasser? You ever knocked over some paint cans with a rock before?

That's what they said when the PS2 was launched.

#5 Posted by MarkM (362 posts) -

PS2 had no games, bro.

So it'll look kind of old and run at 24 fps?

Sounded a bit strange when they hadn't even finished Half-Life 2.

I'm sorry, I didn't hear you, I was too distracted by the video of David Beckham playing in the right hand side.

Well, technically they still haven't finished Half-Life 2:P

I love threads like this because it's so dumb.

Half Life is overrated garbage. Discuss.

Go back and watch the original Toy Story, it still looks good, but not that good. The ground textures in particular look worse than current games.

People like you still exist?

#19 Posted by fisk0 (5092 posts) -

Does anybody else remember how photorealistic graphics were just a year or two away back in 1994? With stuff like Myst, VR headsets and the FMV game wave, photorealism was just around the corner. I think we still have a decade or so to go, and even that is probably on the optimistic side.

Well, to be fair, a lot of FMV games were already entirely photorealistic.

Hey, it's a better tech demo for Source than the id games are for idTech. In my own opinion, anyway. (I liked Doom 3.)

Wait, is this 4chan?

#26 Posted by benpicko (2016 posts) -

Hopefully not the first Toy Story

I meant the "games will look as good as Toy Story!" bit, not that "games will look as good as Half-Life 2!" bit. Though, to be fair, Half-Life 2 eventually did come out on a console that gen. Just not the PS2.

But there is a more pressing issue in this thread.

Specifically, this. It's like someone knows how to spell a bunch of words, but has no idea how to make a decent sentence out of them.

I'd also like to point out that Toy Story in real time has been possible for ages. The old Pixar stuff was done using rasterisation just like we do these days with any modern hardware and the majority of the scene detail was spent on character assets. If you sit down and actually look at Toy Story these days you can see the cut corners as clear as day (the scuff marks and scratches on the base of Andy's door for instance are a bunch of super low res normal maps).

So Toy Story can run on the Xbox 360, then that means Cars can run on my Xbox One?

Lol, nope. Cars is a post Pixar ray tracing world (I think they moved to Ray Tracing with Toy Story 2), that shit's expensive as hell.

Totally.

Apparently whoever said that baffling sentence has deleted his post because I can't find it. Well, we can always bitch about this:

@markm said:

or we can move on with our lives and pity the poor sods that actually think the PS2 has no good games. Or we can pity the poor sods whose lives are so terrible that they must take to trolling the internet to find entertainment.

Or we can just laugh and go play fun games.

I often find I have the opposite problem, I know a lot of words, but can not spell them. So instead of attacking my argument, they attack my grammar. Oh wait... I guess we both have the same problem.

i was not excited at all, cause why the fuck would anyone be hyped about the meer mention of a game that has been MIA for years of gameplay progression in the genre, but I'm fucking pumped now. Day 1 and will get the day 1 dlc Woody's Life.

Toy Story has never looked realistic or graphics pushing to me...

Realistic? No. Graphics pushing?...Yes. Have you seen the last movie?

#42 Posted by RecSpec (4578 posts) -

So you're strolling through Half Life 3, near the end of the game. Then you come across a guy with his back to you. His head turns a 180, oh fuck, it's Gordon Freeman. Then he speaks. Fin.

#43 Posted by Turtlebird95 (3066 posts) -

Gordon's first and last words are "You've Got A Friend In Me."

Give it a few days and the talented yet ultimately misguided modding community will have that covered.

#47 Posted by EXTomar (5027 posts) -

I'm just saying that if Valve wanted to go for "shocking, jaw dropping graphics", what better show?

24FPS LIKE CINEMA. SO CINEMATIC.

#49 Posted by ShaggE (7103 posts) -

Toy Story is the Half Life 2 of Scholastic-published novelizations of hit films that are the Finnegans Wake of movies that are the Citizen Kane of other movies.

I heard it was being done in claymation.
