      Yeah I notice that modern gamers complain about a lot of things but they don't complain about lack of technological progress in the industry. They don't want progress, they grew up in gen 7 and most of them are still playing gen 7 tier games on their Switches. They don't want any change and they can't comprehend that things are getting a bit stale for people who play more than 5 games a year.

    I saw ads for this game on TV as a kid and was dying to play it but I didn't have a PS2.
    tried it for the first time this year and it was really bad.

    anyway, MGS2's graphics are what truly blew my mind as a kid since I was a big fanboy of MGS1

        It's really like someone made a Guy Ritchie adaptation, only they forgot they were making a game not a movie.

        In defense of the gameplay, Getaway's development predates GTA III's and started on the PS1, it was angling to do a lot of the same shit but the standards weren't set in stone yet. One thing it desperately needed was a map/minimap but in their quest for realism they wouldn't allow one, nor any UI on the screen at any time nor any health/ammo pickups or other videogamey things that broke the 'immersion'. This is all sounds stupid now but it was definitely a time for experimenting with how much of a 'movie game' you could get away with. If it got a PC release I'm sure there'd be a million QOL patches to make it more fun to play by now but it'll be forever stuck on PS2.

    Open world games always had pretty mid graphics for the time, because you had to sacrifice for the scale of the world.
    Soul Calibur 1 and Shenmue are several years older than that, and have better looking characters. It also came out the same year as Metroid Prime, and a year after Final Fantasy 10.

    The only meaningful increase in fidelity happened in racing games during the time zoomers started playing games. All other "graphical leaps" were just not that impressive.

          Zoomers were born in 97. They didn't start playing games for 4 or 5 more years, and they didn't start actually being people until their teens, so you're looking at 2010 for when they actually came into their own and starting choosing their own video games.

          Some 4 yearolds playing their uncles hand-me-down doesn't mean zoomers were playing games from 1997 regularly.

            Back then parents didn't care about buying their kids the newest and bestest video games. Everyone I knew started with the OG Gameboy or the Gameboy Pocket and the first game I chose for myself was Prince of Persia. Also everyone played the first generation of Pokeman games. You're just wrong on all counts.

                The NDS wasn't released until I was 8 so nobody had that shit until years after everyone had already thoroughly enjoyed their Gameboys, upgraded to an Advance or SP and enjoyed that too.

                It's not as though people immediately forsake products already on the market by rigorously keeping up with what's the newest. I've had people on this board tell me that people born after 1990 have never seen traditional animation once in their life as if half of the kids shows on TV into the 2000's weren't reruns of ancient stuff.

              it was the most amazing game I played at the time, that pic looks so blurry but at the time I didn't notice. Just driving around at looking at the city was amazing, you could even go into a few buildings which were incredibly detailed, you could almost think of it like a modern day shenmue. The sequal ruined a lot of what made the original good by trying to casualize it.

              We're in a weird period that where chips become obsolete they actually become more expensive to make.

              We went from Wolfenstein in 92 to Unreal in 98. It was an amazing time to be a gamer.

              On the other side I'd say about 1983 to almost 1987 not much progress happened.

              In what universe was Getaway a graphical leap? What are you talking about

              They must mean be compared to early PS2 games which couldn't even beat dreamcast. It has better graphics that mgs2 but being way bigger.

      zoomer v boomer shit is the same as any other angle of homosexualry common to vidya boards, like consolewar threads and the like. its a gay half-hearted perpetual half-argument done mostly out of tradition and the need for newbies to try to "fit in"
