Crysis 1 and Crysis warhead still superior
I truly feel crytek ♥♥♥♥ed up by catoring to the consoles, because if crysis remained a pc exclusive than crysis 2 and 3 would be ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s better. They really had something great with crysis and warhead, but with crysis 2 and 3 they are just doing a call of duty clone and it pisses me off! Crysis and warhead were all freeroam, do what you want, blow up what you want. It pisses me off to never want to buy a console ever to know that they ♥♥♥♥ up epic games to suit them puny gaming toys. ♥♥♥♥ you crytek!

Crysis 3 ain't much different from crysis 2, it uses the same engine. You should see how they ♥♥♥♥ed up psycho in crysis 3, he definatly don't look like psycho. All i am saying is, if crysis didn't cator to the consoles, we would prob see better games from them.

No PC dev studio will survive. The ratio of console gamers and PC gamers is probably something like 10:1. Games cost more to make nowadays, so devs have to rely on publishers for money. But publishers are only looking for devs that can pump out more titles in small periods for greater profits. Look at Call of Duty for example. It's ♥♥♥♥ but they're making tens in millions for each title and EA is LOVING it to death while the creator of Call of Duty is laughing his ♥♥♥ off on the way to the bank.

Point is, a top-selling PC game will only sell a few million units. That's not enough to compensate for today's costs in video game production nor to keep up with the rest of the gaming market. On top of that, pirating is becoming too popular for PC games now. If you look it up, a Crytek member mentioned that the first Crysis was the number one pirated game back in '07 or '08 with MILLIONS of downloads. Just imagine if those people have actually bought the game? It's a huge loss on Crytek.

Look at the Gears of War series. It's a good freakin' game but none of it, except the first title, are available on PCs strictly because of pirating. Even the devs said it.

There's hope though. With next-gen consoles expanding RAM memory, more console games may turn out to be more open-world and less "dumbed down" in the future. Granted if Crysis 2 and 3 were built straight into the PC market, they'd rip open an interdimensional vortex that will suck us right into what we'd perceive as life-like virtual reality gaming with stellar graphics and gameplay mechanics that would be out of this world. But everything has to be limited to fit onto a DVD disk. Blah!

I know realistically you are right on the money, but don't underestimate the amount of pc gamers. Pirating exists on consoles aswell, it's just most console gamer's don't know how or are too honest to. I am a pc gamer, but i don't pirate my games because i am a honest person. It just pisses me off to the point i hate consoles and dumb people and they don't realise the harm they are doing to technological progress.

Hard resset is a great PC exclusive, and i believe with a better publisher, could have done alot better.

Seriously, i think devs fabricate these pirating numbers to cover up the fact that they made a crap game. Take Bulletstorm for instance......terrible game overall, bought it for $5 on steam sale, so not too dissapointed. Played it twice to get an honest review, and i understand why it didn't sell well. of course, Epic blamed pirates on PC as the failure, not actually taking the blame for creating such a bad game. Yes, crytek blamed pirates for Crysis, but the game did still sell 3 million copies on the PC, which is a number to be proud of.

I doubt very succesfull, after all it was pc gamers that rubbed crysis in their face, so most i have talked to about the game think it's boring or not that great, even though i know differently. Apparently if that is the case, then they really got a bad port of it.

Well, graphically it doesn't compare to the PC version. They reduced detail and added a bunch of color correction and bloom to make up for it.
I've heard it runs at a low framerate too, and at less than 720p.

All that WITH the Cryengine3, which is supposed to be optimized for those machines.

Apparently even Crytek can't make Crysis run well.

Still, I'm somewhat impressed with what they accomplished.

When Crysis works, it's a thing of beauty even still to this day. Crysis 1 has the immersion that 2 and 3 don't and better physics as well. While the a.i. is super dense, their animations are far more fluid than the troops in 2 and 3. I picked up 3 for cheap and it just feels like a dlc pack for Crysis 2 which f'n sucks and if the very last scene after the credits is a clue, then it looks like we'll be getting another Warhead type game. Here's hoping the devs don't forget their pc roots and give us something awesome to make up for the lackluster 3.

I think Crysis and Warhead was the last PC 1st person shooter AAA title I have played. Sadly PC gaming is turning into console ports, indie titles and retro games. I didn't get into PC gaming to play these type of games I got into PC gaming to play big innovative AAA titles.

I definitely agree. It would be awesome to get another AAA game that was conceived and built for the PC first then ported to consoles instead of being the other way around.

I agree that island / jungle warfare is far more enjoyable to play than the boxed-in feel of a city-based shooter.

I think they should release two versions -- one for consoles and standard PCs, and a second, "full" version for those of us who don't mind spending a few bucks more on RAM and want to play HUGE maps, with lots of targets, and lots of opportunities for asymmetric (i.e. guerrilla-type, "hit-n-run") tactics.

The expansion of the island-type maps shouldn't be too much of a problem, what with the sophistication of the map-making process being what it is today...

Why not take full advantage of 64-bit systems and ramp it up a bit, Crytek?

Consoles games have superior budgets and ♥♥♥♥♥ 7 year old tech and PC have ♥♥♥♥♥ ported games and awesome tech. Ethier way the 'gamer' looses out so we should all 'CRY' out for superior games on superior 'TEK' lol. Better flipping consoles means better flipping PC ports in the future. PC gamers have the tech already just waiting for Sony & MS to catch up lol.

Consoles cant be constantly updated like pcs can... That's the only reason PCs are better.

Dude would you wear clothers from 6-7 years ago? Or use a mobile/cell phone of the same age? Er no unless you wanted to go retro looking or for fancy dress. So be happy with your xbox/ps3 I see mine as quaint relics from the past when I play on them they are so retro lol.

PC games can be modded to add free and totally new content is another good reason they are better.

Sigh.... a 6 year old console isn't "retro"

And what I meant is this:
Say Crysis 3 just came out, and your GPU isn't good enough, so you decided to upgrade it...

You can't do that on a console.....

This is why PCs are better... But If consoles could have their hardware upgraded constantly, then yes, consoles could stand a chance against PCs, but that's IF consoles will ever be upgradable...

6 months in the world of PC gaming is obsolete, 6 years is not retro are you kidding me? The xbox/psn is 84 years old its loke a pensioner without a bus pass dude, it doesn't get very far thesedays.

I wouldn't call current generation consoles "retro"

Maybe next or a few more generations... But not when it is current......

6 year old console. 6 months is the PC year. 1 year = 7 in dog years. Do the sums thats xbox/psn is 84 years old they need to be put in the Console old ♥♥♥es home. Do not dispute me you have no glorious beard and eating carrot cake will not enlighten you to think better, it only gives you night vision meh.

My name is from a video.... Carrot Cake is disgusting... And who the hell said consoles and pcs go by dog years?

i disagree. crysis 2 is the best mp fps there is imo. i do however agree that crysis and warhaed were very good games but i play mostly mp and because of that i think crysis 2 beats them all
