    No, 130fps @4k resolution is perfectly fine.

    If its a console game? Yes.

    If its a PC game? No.

      for me it ultimately depends on whether or not it leads to other performance problems like acceleration or funky things with the textures. i ultimately don't care beyond that caveat.

      >inb4 b-but muh developer's intentions
      you know damn well that if the technology we have now existed back then the developers would be taking advantage of it. don't pretend otherwise or claim double standards like

        No,

        If its a console game? Yes.

        If its a PC game? No.

        is right. There is inhernt difference between console and PC games, which is that console games were made with a very specific platform in mind, while PC games were designed for scaling hardware. Two people could be playing the same game in 1999 and the game would have very different performance based on each users' hardware.

        Double standards make sense when there are two different contexts. The reason I made the distinction between console and PC for this is exactly what

        said.

        Consoles are static hardware, PCs are not. When it comes to PC games, any performance limit you set will be arbitrary and mostly down to personal preference. But console games played the same no matter which console it was played on, if I play a game on my PS2 or a friends PS2. Its going to perform and behave pretty much exactly the same unless there's something wrong with one of our consoles.

    where's the soul in a blurry image and jaggy edges? Back when I played PS2 games I wish they weren't there.

      Where's the soul in flat sharp lines, and stretched textures with visible seams?

      Low resolution let's your imagination fill in the gaps in visual fidelity. If old games actually looked better in higher resolutions, I'd play them like that. But they don't.

    Start playing games and stop arguing about how people should play games.

    Things that actively change how the game is (different textures, models, gameplay) is very questionable, but if it's just resolution or something similar then it's good

    Just played this game more than I ever have as a kid and it's probably one of the biggest MK games.

    I played with my Gamecube hooked up to my HD TV only because I had a friend over to play it. Debating whether to take the 'Cube back upstairs to my retro room now or leave it downstairs.

        I would actually like a Deadly Alliance skin for her in MK1, give her some flowing, elegant robes.

        I thought that Mileena pic in Playboy and the Jade commercial where she says her measurements were both pretty tacky, but the in-game models are still hot if not also tacky, more sexy than 9's abominations.
