These two games are 7 years apart

Has gaming tech stagnated? Or are modern devs just incompetent?

    Incompetent. Modern games don't need to play great, look great, sound great or even tell great stories or have great characters.
    They need marketing budgets. Everything else is secondary.

    Tech stopped progressing thanks to progressive quotas.

      No Rocksteady did not develop it, I believe it was WB Montreal that worked on it.

    Can I just say I hate the architectural style of the new game? Is that supposed to be gotham? Why does it look so modern, generic, and shitty? At least the old games made Gotham feel like its own place.

    lol

    To be fair, though, it is just shovelware. Nobody with artistic competence is working on Superhero loot-based action-RPG 2022.

    Devs stopped trying. The same thing happens with movies. There's a reason why Jackson's LoTR still looks great even though those movies are 20 years old: the people who made it gave a shit. If the devs are only in it for the money and consumers will consume any CoDslop they are served, then why try?

      Hell, even within the CGI department, movies from the 2000's like Spiderman 3, Pirates of the Carribeean, or Avatar look miles ahead of the shit that Marvel's putting out like Black Widow, Love & Thunder, or Multiverse of Madness

        This is because marvel is requesting an absolutely insane amount of CG shots from an ever increasing amount of overworked vfx monkeys

        entire movies and tv shows getting filmed on greenscreens with shorter deadlines and much more of them than ever before, shot at really shitty high exposures so it can be fixed in post without "losing detail"

        It's almost like every single movie these days all have HUNDREDS of visual effect shots with insane deadlines for the few studios that are competent enough to actually pull shit off.

      modern cgi has no excuse when shit like this was made almost 30 years ago

    Devs only make games look as good as the weakest console will allow. That's how it's been for over a decade now coz everything is multiplat and costs too much to make.
    Enjoy your """cinematic""" and licensed slop

    the truth no one wants to admit is that capitalism fundamentally encourages as much laziness as possible, as little effort for maximum profit
    this works because most people are idiots, but it's still scummy that quality gets held back by the lowest common denominators being taken advantage by soulless board rooms who care nothing for games, only their utility to create income

    Dang, It's been a little minute since I played Arkham Knight so I forgot how good it looked. WB Montreal should be ashamed.

    Was Arkham Knight's performance issues ever fixed? Does it run well on modern hardware?

      Runs pretty good now thankfully.

    It's always been the economy. Every single time, it's the economy. You don't get the same bang for your buck anymore. It doesn't matter how far the tech goes if your workforce can't be leveraged efficiently.

      I cringe whenever I see this lol, you should try to 3d model yourself to see why it is untrue.

        It's not completely untrue though. If you take this image in a good faith — then it just suggests that there is a reasonable point where further increase of polycount won't worth the loss of performance.

      The game isn't an example of Diminishing returns. It's an actual regression in technology. It looks worse, and markedly so than it's predecessor from 7 years ago.
      We'll entering the age of 40k where technology from the past is no longer known and the technology that we have is worshipped as part of your faith (Apple).

    Both are true, Gotham Knights was actually also developed for PS4 and Xbone but those versions were cancelled so both of these games were made to run on the same hardware. So likely once again next gen hardware was fucked by devs being forced to use outdated hardware. That's why the console versions even on PS5 will be 30 fps, devs are retarded and weren't given enough time to make the game for that system.
