[QUOTE=Atlascore;33163558]ITT: Retard that thinks graphics actually matter.[/QUOTE] are you serious you actually find it retarded to care about a game's presentation? you may want to rethink who the retard is here. [B]edit:[/B] and of course everyone blindly rates dumb if anything negative is said about the game
[QUOTE=Atlascore;33163658]What recent gameplay videos? The 240p streams of the 360 version being played by idiots that can't even tie their own shoes or use a health potion? That's a horrible thing to base your opinion of a game off of.[/QUOTE] Nice strawman.
[QUOTE=sp00ks;33163676]Nice strawman.[/QUOTE] you're just flamebaiting now. He's got a point though, a 240p stream on top of it being the 360 version of the game is a terrible representation of anything graphically.
[QUOTE=BuDSpOoNce;33163667]are you serious you actually find it retarded to care about a game's presentation? you may want to rethink who the retard is here.[/QUOTE]We don't give a shit about the games graphics, why do you? It's a game made for 6 year old hardware, if you're expecting them to make a big open world with Crysis ultra quality graphics you're an idiot.
I have no idea what 240p video you are talking about.
[QUOTE=sp00ks;33163642]I don't give a shit if people get angry. I was really looking forward to this game, but after the recent gameplay videos I'm not sure I'll even buy it. I was hoping it would be what Oblivion promised to be, but the gameplay and graphics still look very much like Gamebryo.[/QUOTE] "Its gamebryo, I can tell because of the pixels"
I realise how backwards it is to nitpick at an open world game's graphics - but I do think it's a crucial thing for people who play the game for immersion. That said, I've always been able to look through Bethesda's presentation for the content - if Skyrim is just an extension of Oblivion's dated look, I really don't mind.
[QUOTE=sp00ks;33163712]I have no idea what 240p video you are talking about.[/QUOTE]The only [U]recent[/U] gameplay footage we have is from streams of the xbox version, and they're almost always low quality. Are you even trying anymore?
Skyrim may not have the best graphics[i](who gives a shit)[/i], but it has a solid [b]aesthetic[/b]. Watch this, you might learn a thing or two. [url]http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/graphics-vs.-aesthetics[/url] I for one will be playing Skyrim on day one, regardless of any "low res textures" or "bad animations" that may crop up. -And I'm going to enjoy the shit out of it.

We will all see when the game is released, stop fighting like children. [editline]7th November 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Espio;33163733]Is this an Oblivion mod or is this actually Skyrim footage[/QUOTE]I'm guessing Oblivion mod, the animations gives it away
[QUOTE=Espio;33163733]Is this an Oblivion mod or is this actually Skyrim footage[/QUOTE] It's fake obviously. It's fallout NV since it has children in it.
[QUOTE=Atlascore;33163558]ITT: Retard that thinks graphics actually matter.[/QUOTE] they do though. to some degree. especially in an rpg where immersing yourself in fictional world is a big part of the game which i imagine being really hard in Skyrim because it looks almost as shite as Oblivion. nothing casts a shadow wtf. terrible
[QUOTE=kevlar jens;33163750]they do though. do some degree. especially in an rpg where immersing yourself in fictional world which i imagine being really hard in Skyrim because it looks almost as shite as Oblivion. nothing casts a shadow wtf. terrible[/QUOTE]Read Kiamberm's post. You don't need good graphics to be immersed in something anyway, people get immersed in books for fucks sake.

[QUOTE=TurbisV2;33163735]I'm guessing Oblivion mod, the animations gives it away[/QUOTE] Good, the things they've released so far showed they made at least some improvement on gamebryo, it'd be a shame if it was just a load of bs, although I still expect there'll be some bugs with the animations and other stuff more gamebreaking just cause it's bethesda
Just managed to order my retail copy off shopto! Now to leave the thread due to idiots who dont use spoiler tags.

It's a game made for 6 year old hardware, if you're expecting them to make a big open world with Crysis ultra quality graphics you're an idiot.[/QUOTE] okay first of all i don't expect it to be a big open world crysis. i do however expect it to be better than what i've seen. right now it looks like a 2007 game, and I'm basing that on the official gameplay videos as well. second, if you don't give a shit about the graphics, why have you been defending them for the last 2 pages? also "we"? speak for yourself, a lot of people give a shit about graphics. you keep emphasising that the graphics are going to be amazingly superior on the pc, but really doubt it. the lighting and shadows are still gonna be the same, and the animations are still gonna be bad, only the textures will be higher res. if the graphics on the pc are going to be so much more amazing, they would have released screenshots and videos from the pc version instead.

How do you think it does? I'm honestly looking at all the same images you are, and I see them as hi-res and quality in most situations. Maybe I'm dumb, but I model shit for fun on the side, and seeing this stuff? I definitely appreciate the quality.
You can't say that Skyrim doesn't look good without punching yourself in the face first.

Until we get tech specs and real screenshot comparisons of release-content and not some early alpha builds like some of the videos out there, I don't think there's room to make decisions.

So a guy at my school got Skyrim already this friday. Messup with his order. I am jealous. He posted pictures on his facebook as well, so I know it's not fake. It's for the 360 as well, so he was able to play it this weekend :<
[QUOTE=BuDSpOoNce;33163902]even if that does happen, I don't see why the developers wouldn't release any pc footage. wouldn't you want to display your game in at it's highest graphical potential? i'm not too confident that pc version will look that much better, but I will be pleasantly surprised if it did.[/QUOTE] One problem with displaying a game at it's highest graphical potential is that most of your customers in this day and age are playing on a console. So if you give them this amazing and beautiful looking footage and screenshots then give them a low textured version for the console they will be annoyed and feel somewhat betrayed. Now I personally think all games that are for both PC and Consoles should have comparison screenshots and videos before the game is even out just to prove that the game is going to be better on one but also warn people that it may not look like that on their computer or console. I know this no real excuse but I still think the game looks nice.
I'm going to enjoy becoming a thief and reloading my save constantly until every guard in town is naked of items.
if it makes anyone feel better I'll install it on my beefy computer and get some good screenshots at its best settings on launch day

[QUOTE=Atlascore;33163755] You don't need good graphics to be immersed in something anyway, people get immersed in books for fucks sake.[/QUOTE] Comparing books to video games on a presentation front is beyond flawed. Games are heavily visual and present their image of their story to you. Books present you the story, and you're meant to visualise everything yourself, with your interpretation of the story. Graphics are important in games for immersion because it's a failing when games aren't doing that well and it's a distraction. I think Skyrim looks pretty good, and I'm lucky in that I'm not so focused on graphics anyway. Many of my favourite games being SNES era. Contrary to what others have said, you're not retarded for thinking graphics matter, it's opinion based for starters and if that person values a high quality visual experience, and they feel Skyrim fails on that front, they're fully entitled to think so. Regardless of whether your or I disagree.
