Has anyone used mad onion’s 3dmark2001?
There is one demo in that of a meadow with grass and a river and a fisherman. Those graphics compared to the average computer game are like the mona-lisa compared to a picture of a triangle.
I’d LOVE a game if they made the graphics like that. I wouldn’t even want to progress, I’d just want to roam around in the scenery!
But NOOOOOOoooooooo! they want to make money (that’s all they fucking want. the world is crap) so they create games that work well on low/medium spec pcs. which means they’ll sell far more copies. and make more fucking money!
There used to be games that were really great,epic, profoundly enjoyable. Now the games are almost designed to appeal to our surface , shallow , basic, feelings as quickly as possible. appealing to shallow feelings ultimately leaves us unfulfilled. Games used to appeal to our deeper feelings, our imaginations, our evolved brain. they did justice to the magnificent marvelous qualities that we all have deep down (and seldom used) in our skulls.
Games Like Flashback. I loved that game. the graphics were nothing special but there was something about it that made it a very special game. The future in which the game was set really inspired the imagination!
Or maybe I just played it back in a time when I loved life, and could enjoy a game more.
Has the world changed or have I changed? Have I got so used to it that I can’t enjoy it like I used to? I don’t think so because every now and then I get an inkling of a thought or sense (a bit of music, or something I see) that gives me a tiny window into bits of life that still can be enjoyed, that can be euphoric (and legal). Why can’t I access those things fully? Are they reserved for when I get older (I am 22).
