There was a time when I thought that games and characters would keep looking better each year. Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous There was a time when I thought that games and characters would keep looking better each year.
>left: badass, ain't gonna take anybody's shit
>right: the actual face of a man who hasn't slept for over five days and has only known non-stop combat, alien invasions, multi-dimensional fuckery, and has subsisted almost entirely off morphine and the one donut he ate on the day this all began
>Realism in videogames is ... le good
Realism is only good when it can be used as an excuse to make things uglier.
Gordon never seemed like the sort of badass type to me, but the left kinda looks cooler
It's kind of a result of multiple things. A lot of it is just the higher resolution making details more apparent.
But some of the loss of 'attitude' is just a slight amount of sneer in the lips, and the eyes of the right absolutely were botched.
Didn't he get to 'sleep' for like 2 decades?
>Concept art. vs. In-game* Model
*Background model not meant to be viewed up close
Frozen in stasis. Potentially he basically blinked looking at G-Man in the tram in Zen and opened his eyes to the train entering City 17.
There is hl2 survivor model of gordon that is closer to the internal model valve used for promotional images. Also, it could be that this image uses different lens setting?
>actual 3d model
Why are you subhuman?
>it's a 3D model, so it HAD to look like shit in my toilet!
Why do you defend these companies for free?
You weren't meant to see Gordon in detail in the first place, spacing-kun
>it's not meant to be seen up close, so it HAD to look like shit in my toilet!
Why do you defend these companies for free?
Enough with the food analogies
I mean, yes?
Why waste extra time and effort in a model that is not meant to be seen up close.
Why do you abandon your own fucking argument? You were specifically making a big deal about the comparison, anon points out the problem with said argument.
Your post abandons your own argument you dumb shit. You were basically asking why the left looks better than the right, you got your fucking answer.
its still was a render of a model, that was touched over in image editor
also, right image wasnt created by valve, only model is, so in the end he defends a sfm user?
they are different models
Hey gays. Here's what Gordon's model looked like around 2004. Now make comparisons.
"buuh buh buh buuh" It wasn't used in Half-Life 2, rather the Arcade release, but the model was made by the same artists around the same time. Uses a combination of about 8 Valve employee's faces for the design. You want poopy diarrhea? Open wide, your disingenuous arguing over digital artwork compared to an actual model comes to an end under my brown sea
That's not Gordon's model because Gordon didn't have an official ingame model created by Valve. That's fan made.
why do you retards still not understand this?
Find an image of the new Gordon model that looks good.
In Alyx, completely silhouetted, the only way that model was ever meant to be seen at all, you pack of dummies
This has to be the same retard spamming this. No one can be this fucking cucked.
Out of copes?
Carry on then.
That's a yes.
What are you trying to push here? Is this an elaborate cope of your own?
I thought you were running away, anon.
Use real words and the adults might let you play
>lamaj and erioioire
Those are two different people retard.
The model on the right is firstly not to the quality of other characters in Alyx as it is only seen for a split second in the game and shrouded in darkness; secondly the screenshot of the model has clearly been ported to Source 1 which causes the facial textures/lighting to look like shit (grimy pores etc.); thirdly even given these detractions the model looks fine assuming that you’re ok with a Gordon looks like a scientist rather than some messianic badass.
>the model SHOULD look like shit in my toilet because.. he's a scientist!
I mean it looks fine if you load it in source 2 as I said and don’t backport it to s1, as I said. Same happens with the g-man models which tends to look crusty as fuck in most s1 sfm animations
Post an image with the new Gordon model that looks good.
he fucked up my face
Imagine comparing boxart to the literal in-game model and whining about it, how about you put the 2004 model instead, retard.
Oh i'm not defending valve at all.
You're just a retard at comparisons, and clearly missed on kindergarden classes.
That's all i'm trying to make you realize
>Oh I'm not [defense of Valve]
>You're just [cope]
>Says something that clearly states that he's mononeuronal
>''uR jUSt A CApITAliST BOoTLIckER''
Altough the last part about defending companies is actually cool and all, you should try to drive it to something that actually matters, the rest of everything you said is completely autistic
>guy states blatant lies
>get's called out
the picture on the left is a 2D illustration, a piece of crafted art.
the picture on the right is a 3D model that you may actually find in game
this is what the HL2 gordon model actually looked like.
i am so tired of unintelligent people
Let's be fair here, it has been 16 years, and those 16 years have not been very kind to him.
The Gordon on the right is literally only meant to be seen from a distance, in the dark, covered in shadows, for a couple of seconds. Retard.
Another thread won. You all lost the second you sided with ugliness.
Noooo! My knees...they are kneeling...anon...I'll admit. You're better than me, anon. You are the best.
Your delusions of grandeur end here, anon
They made him a söybôy, quick we need a basedjak edit
I made a meme.
