Also the sprites still faced you when they died (the amount of times I'd stare at an Imp's a%$e, but that's besides the point!) no matter where you turned.
I can appreciate how advanced the technology was at the time for DOOM, or for a movie example, the old King Kong films.. But there's still quite obviously 'not real'.. (I hope I'm not sounding rude)..
UT was way more 'realistic' than DOOM but still never felt 'real' to me.. Maybe I'm just very black-and-white?
When you grow up playing Pacman and Space Invaders, Doom looks amazingly realistic. Unreal Tournament was what, 4-5yrs after Doom?
I suppose it's a frame of reference thing. I grew up playing games like Fantasy World Dizzy and Flashback, so when the PS1 came along with Abe's Odyssey, Tomb Raider and FF:VII, it was very real to me. Even today playing games on XBox like Hitman and True Crimes feels amazingly real.
Maybe I'm just easily pleased?
4-5 years sounds about right, but I remember UT99 and FF:VIII being my first 'main' games. Although I've played plenty of PAC-MAN and other 'simpler' games.. I remember one for the PS1, and old cartoony-style game called 'Jumping Flash'.. But the games were equally 'not real' to me (even though, for example, UT99 is more 'real' than FF8)..
Things didn't really start feeling 'real' to me until landscaping/'natural' level designs improved and character movement was refined. I just don't get how big ol' Godzilla or King Kong's jerky movements seemed 'real'.. Uncanny valley and all.
Obviously going to be awesome.
Valiant Hearts could go either way, but the subject matter looks interesting (trailer needs headphones, possibly also tissues for manful tears)
Batman: Arkham Knight looks amazing, and I say that as someone who didn't get on with City/Oranges, but you can tell there's a new generation of tech powering Knight. Project CARS also seems like the stuff of make believe.
Ori looks like Limbo by way of Studio Ghibli, which is clearly amazing. I really, really hope No Man's Sky turns out as amazing as it looks, because it looks incredible. And I may finally get to finish Grim Fandango now - every PC I've ever played the original on has hit a crash bug at some point
Witcher 3 is still the game I want the most though (NSFW for mega violence).
any love for Ori and the blind forest?
Plus, if they're voiced, they're looking at a massive cost for female voice actors in every language...
The tumblr SJWs are eating themselves over this... it's actually pretty funny.
They're kicking off because there's no female assassins.... They're arguing that female =/= chesticles... So, TECHNICALLY [according to their logic] that could be a group of 4 women.
Le EDIT: I just noticed that Ori and the Blind Forest is "Only on Xbox One"... Eh, no it isn't. It's coming to PC as well.

The problem with having a female assassin is finding the right shoes to go with the outfit
