It’s that time of year again. E3 is upon us. The annual gaming convention largely boils down to a dick waving competition for the industry’s biggest companies. Everyone wants to show how pretty looking their games can look. This year being much more important than most, with Sony and Microsoft both eager to prove their console is the best. I think the whole showing how good games look thing may actually mean less now than ever before. I think we’ve hit a point where everything kind of looks good. Does a consoles graphical power still really matter nowadays?
Let me make it clear, I’m not saying the argument doesn’t matter to people. It seems like every multi console game released is quickly followed by split screen comparison shots and fanboys yelling at each other. I’m saying from a quality of the game you’re playing standpoint this argument matters less than ever. If you just played a game on your console of choice in a vacuum without the internet you would just have a great time. You wouldn’t care how many Ps the game had. You would just know it looked good and continue your life.
