Not better, but...

I like how the game reminds me of both daoc and coh. I think arenanet took several good features from both those games. It doesnt remind me if wow at all, I don't get the wow comparisons.

If it is not WoW like, it is bad.

If it is WoW like, it's also bad.

If it's a themepark, it's too on rails.

If it's a sandbox, it's too confusing and aimless.

If you sleep, you must die.

If you stay awake, you must die.

 

Basically put, doomed to fail in the eyes of some people regardless of stance taken.

A themepark, but it borrows its ideas from pre wow themeparks. So its more open ended than the legion of games we've had over the past 8years.

Yeah and wow like = bad in my book

Ok thanks for letting YOUR PoV know to the world.
We dont share YOUR PoV.

Now go back to some other craptastic mmo you played and let us have all the fun.
As we have insane amounts of fun crafting / pvp / WvW / PvE.

Dont let the door hit you on the way out ! :)

TSW and Tera have a much more complex graphics engine, but they looked a bit.... plastic to me.  Especially TSW.  The animations reminded me of 90's CGI where no one was quite sure how to make all the parts move together realistically.

The other thing I'm going off with tsw is crowd performance, its really good in that regard.

Tsw seems more gpu hungry than gw2, gw2 seems more cpu hungry.

Nah that was a function of programming not the engine.  AoC had fantastic animations and combat and used the same game engine.  Also the fact that my roomate was able to play it on a 5 year old computer with a gtx260 and the lowest setting looked better and ran better than a lot of other games on high...well thats a good engine.  Also getting whatever their version of WvWvW to work with such high graphic tech as they did was impressive from what i saw... 

 

Now with GW2...only DX9 of course it should run good on an average system, a new game thats suppose to be AAA or whatever with only dx9 is a shortcut.  I feel that DX11 would have shown the engines flaws.

 

You can say a lot of negative things about TSW for all i care, not my type of game, but that game engine is fantastic.  But if were going to bash other games here i feel at least that game has substance in it.  comparing TSW to GW2 is like comparing Highlights magazine (anyone remember those?) to a Von Mises book.

You guys are absolutely delusional if you think GW2 has good graphics. Please do yourself a favor and educate yourself before posting next time. Bloom and post processing effects are used ad nauseum in this game to disguise the low polygon count and low-res textures.

Check out: TSW (best looking game in the genre currently), Tera, Rift, Lotro, and Age of Conan's Rise of the Godslayer zones.

Hey, I'm sorry you don't like the graphics of GW2. 

That's fine, because the term "good graphics" is entirey subjective and not in any way quantifyable.

I think GW2's graphics are great, as do a large number of reviewers out there, and not just amateur reviewers either.

But again, it's fine if you don't like them. Just don't act like your opinion is purely objective and that there's some abstract right or wrong answer.

p.s.: I play with bloom and all post-processing turned off. That's not what I'm referring to when i say I think GW2 has good graphics.

 None of that matters.

Every technical aspect of computer graphics exists for one, and one purpose only:  To render art.

In the end, the actual art of the game matters WAY more than the technical aspects of the graphics.  And that is why I love the graphics of GW2 so much.  The art is beautiful, unique, and very well fitting for the theme of the game.

I could honestly care less what kind of effects it uses.  All that matters to me is what I see.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

AoC from 2008 blows it right out of the water, and the performance is very poor on modern hardware. I got 40ish fps on my gtx 670 and 15-20 in WvWvW. And yes, that was with subsampling off.

It doesn't even support DX10, let alone DX11. I don't know of any other game that have come in 2012 with only DX9 support.

 

I'm not really a graphics whore, but to say that GW2 has a good engine is a lot of baloney.

You should look at your drivers or even your system a little more closely. I run the same GTX 670 and my fps is higher.  edit: I removed the other photo so you could also possibly use the settings I have and it may help your fps. :)

TSW - best looking game? They used a SSO game - thinks look flat and lifeless and it also looks awful.

 

Tera is nice but they use fade in the background so it looks MEH. Rift is OK but the engine uses the CPU too much.

 

GW2 is meant to look like a drawn world - so it does. I like it's looks.

 

You are the one delusional. Having DX-11 does nothing if your graphics are piss poor like TSW.
