Is photorealism in gaming really desirable?
dniblock 1 year ago
Tim Sweeney, the guy who developed the Unreal Engine and founder of Epic Games, recently said that he is certain that in 10 years, video games will be photorealistic and the graphics will be indistinguishable from reality. I’m not sure this is completely a positive thing. Development costs are already huge for major titles, and I would think that the greater the level of detail, the greater the development cost. Plus, the gaming words are an escape from reality; I’m not sure that it will be as escapist if everything just looks real. What do you think - is photorealism a goal worth achieving?
