Fallout 4 trailer is here, and gamers are over-excited. However, I am not because the graphics look so underwhelming, as if this is an Xbox 360 game.
If this is what Bethesda plans to bring to PC and current generation console gamers, then the team is in for a massive surprise.
Yes, it is very clear that Fallout 4 is an open world game, but you know what? So is The Witcher: Wild Hunt. Some might say it is not fair to compare the two games, but why not? Both The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 are open world titles, and as such, we cannot just claim them to be so different to not warrant comparison.
The Witcher 3 has a vast and active open world, yet the developers managed to deliver great-looking graphics across all available platforms. This did not hamper gameplay; nor did it make for a less enjoyable experience.
Fallout 4's bad graphics should come as a surprise to no one at this point since Bethesda's open world titles in the past had proven to be quite ugly when it came down to character models. You see, the world itself looks great, but the characters never managed to get us saying, "WOW."
To think, with the current generation of consoles, the fact that Bethesda is unable to bring a quality-looking game to market is a cause for concern. Just look at The Witcher 3, and yes, we can't praise this excellent game enough.
The game is still in development and probably won't be ready until 2016, but let's face it, nothing much might ever change in the graphics department. You see, usually when a company releases a trailer of a game, it is to get fans excited, not to have them questioning the possibility of purchasing the game when it comes out.
We should see if any changes come in time for the official gameplay showing at E3 2015 in the next two weeks. If nothing changes, then gamers will have strong reasons to rant away.
