i dunno, i'd rather have a game that isnt all about extreme eye-candy as long as it runs decently on mid-range hardware of today. its kinda dumb getting these games today that have crazy graphics and then getting frustrated trying to play it at 15-20 frames per second just because some of dont want to buy one of them $400-500 video cards. even as i look back on some of the older games from the past couple years, their graphics are still good enough for me. i mean even UT and Q3A from 1999 can hold their own in terms of graphics for me. i dont like how the PC game market is so hardware driven that the video cards cost as much as console machines but do not have the life span that makes it cost effective.
