We need to coin a new term: Meta-cringe -- when you cringe at the ignorance displayed by others cringing at stuff because they think it is ignorant, AND at the same time you are fully conscious that your own cringe at their cringe is also ignorance on a higher level. :D

Haha I've been here...

That's why I quit the AAA game industry within 1 year.

It's a soulcrushing meatgrinder. Indie games are the way.

AAA game development = Orange

Indie game development = Green

Except Indie game suck.Most of em anyways.


I'm not friendly.

What is he doing on onlyfans, though? isn't it a platform for camwhores and porn actresses to monetize their following?

hahaha It was a joke because of the video posted.

@Leo Gura Haha xD

That's a crazy synchronicity.

I recently bought a computer and installed the original Crysis on it to test the performances. I was not able to run it at max in Full HD above 30 - 35 FPS. I'll maybe try the remaster, but stay careful to avoid an explosion. It's so sad :(

Crysis is a really old game now. It could just be poorly optimized (for today's standards) along with being very graphics-intensive. You could have games that have more detail than Crysis nowadays that are able to run better on the same system.

Poorly-optimized games can run like crap on high-end systems even if there isn't much graphical detail:

speaking of video games, beside Valve and Arkane studio, i don't see many AAA game companies really pushing and revolutionizing the gaming industry in any meaningful ways. Their game just feel plastic and repetitive, you know what i mean ?

The story starts, bad guys appear and need to be stopped, then you start running, shooting, get behind covers, more shooting, execute a flashy and cool finisher move and more running, sometime you open crates and then more shooting.

If the game's only selling point is the graphics, the game would feel shallow and it would ages badly. But of course, that's the thing that attracts dumb gamers.

@Extreme Z7

Yes, that's probably the case. Also, the computer that I bought is just a laptop dedicated to web development so it's not a highly powerful machine, but I was happy to see that it was able to run Crysis.

Why would they be? The purpose of most AAA game companies is maximizing profits, not creating art.

not cd project red those guys are passionate about their work and it really shows for example the witcher 3 , they are the most respected game company in the industry especially cause they listen to their fans and are able to deliver the full package.

 

 

its insane the level of detail and work they put in compared to most popular games which are just simply a cashgrab

 

you can see how passionate the developers about their work and how much they care about the product

@Bryanbrax After the success of Cyberpunk, they will soon be corrupted. Their top talent will burn out and leave and CD Projekt Red will turn into EA, Blizzard, Bethesda, Bioware. That's what always happens. The more success they get, the more money they earn, the bigger their hits, the more corrupt and heartless they become.

Once you reach that level of success and size, it all becomes a corporate machine and it will never be about the art.

AAA game development is basically unsustainable from a creative/artistic POV. It's fucking meatgrinder.

@Leo Gura Honestly, I’m not sure how successful Cyberpunk is going to be. It’s been in development for a looong time now which from what I can tell isn’t usually a sign of high quality final product, plus the gameplay we have seen seems kinda shallow and dated. I get the feeling this could be another Watchdogs in the making, which would mean they’re already engaged in Stage Orange devilry through deceptive advertising :ph34r:

I bet it will probably get a 9/10 or 10/10 rating and sell something like 30+ million copies. Unless it turns out to be turd.

I think they've been developing it so long because they know if they can hit a 9/10 rating they will earn a billion dollars off this title. So it's really in their benefit to make it good.

If it matches the quality of Witch 3, they will earn a billion dollars.

Hey Leo, I remember you mentioning in your vids that you worked in the games industry at one point, just wondering what your role was? Artist? Producer? Programmer? Been a bit curious about this for awhile, since I've been in the industry as well.
