I'm not talking about any particular game specifically, but rather in general. Does anyone else ever get aggravated or annoyed by this statement when it's never actually remotely close to being able to accurately compare the said game?
I see this comment all the time when gamers compare games in graphics. The thing that is always annoying to me, is that later, developers usually release shots of a completely area!
It makes it really impossible to be able to see this difference. The rest of the time there really isn't one. Most of the times, to me it's just a matter of art design and area that they are displaying that just might look more appealing than the last one they showed. I have very rarely seen games improve from E3 to launch on a technical level, in the graphics department, at least not to the extent that this phrase is constantly used.
Either show a screen from E3 and then show that same exact screen or area 3 months later, at the same resolution, quality, or as close as humanly possible, and point out where it improved, or please stop this nonsense!
It bugs me. Anyone else bugged by this? And other poor screenshot comparisons?
