Half-Life 2 Graphics in 2009?
Idly flicking through my staple forum of choice this morning, I checked out some of the new posts on the universal Left 4 Dead thread. One simply states “Meh, bad graphics. Half-life 2 engine in 2009? Seriously?” Is that really how some people see gaming? A constant battle of geeky men swinging their penises because their engine can render per-pixel polymetric nasel hair shading? Well of course it isn’t. I think we all know that “gameplay” trumps graphics any day. But to what extent are “old” graphics acceptable?
