Killzone, and AC4 are my launch games. I also have NFS:Rivals preordered from Amazon but it says Nov 22 for the release date. Does anyone know if that is correct?

A bit of a mix between Vinny and Brad. I am a completionist like Vinny but I enjoy the occasional competitive game like Brad.

@the_ruiner: To expand on your example. Recent technologies and modern browsers have made it easy to do complex stuff like radial meters so people look to use these new techniques whenever they can.

I went in blind for the first 6ish hours and then started using a walkthrough/wiki because I want to be finished by the PS4 launch.

@darji: I decided against CARS because it's not due out until Q4 2014.

@csl316: I did this comparison based specifically on Brad's comments that there is currently better looking stuff than the PS4/XB1 on the PC. He also mentioned that it wasn't the case last time around. I just wanted to go back and compare since I remembered Far Cry and Doom 3 looking better than any of the 360 launch games.

Framerates and resolutions have always been better on PC, that is nothing new.

I thought it was interesting what Jeff and Brad said about this generation's games not having the same "leap" that previous generations have had, especially in comparison to PC games. I thought I would take a look and see just now they stack up. PC screenshots will be on the left.

Note: Condemned was also released on the PC.

Note: I couldn't find any other PC games with an art style similar to Kameo in the era.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005)

Note: Need a better comparison. I couldn't find any PC racing games from 2005 that weren't ports.

For launch I'm going disc because I don't trust Sony to have a stable online infrastructure on launch day. After that I'll probably go digital only.

The GB crew for some reason seems to relate The Last of Us to Ryan's death so I honestly don't think it will get strong consideration. I don't think Jeff or Brad have played very much of it either, which is a shame since it's such a great game.
