They show you a beautiful game with gorgeous lighting effects and textures.But,after the game release you notice that the game does not look as it should.graphics doesn't look as good like before and barely if you can run it at 30fps on your High-end pc.Sound familiar?
Developers have a habit to balance the system between PC and consoles.Far cry 3,need for speed rivals are some from a long list with bad optimized game/dragged down by some old old hardware.Why they are doing this?Is hard to say what every developer think,or what company pay them to do that. Far Cry 3 for example,on E3 2012 we seen a beautiful rich jungle.What we got at launch?A jungle with five-six trees and some plants.We can't complain,because Far Cry 3 has a good storyline and a fun combat system. That's also may explain why some players are worried about Watch Dogs. Need for Speed Rivals on the other hand is locked at 30fps,and not many players consider 30 fps playable.If you try to get more then 30 fps(60 fps) your game will run 2X faster.But there is a solution, go to your 'Need for Speed:Rivals'properties,click on shortcut and add " -GameTime.MaxSimFps 60 -GameTime.ForceSimRate 60+" to the 'Target entry' don't forget,if you use this you will have to keep your game on a constant 50-60 fps. What is the future of video games?
