    Two awesome things that must be highlighted:

    * Cyberpunk
    * PC Exclusive

    Consider me signed up.

    Good to see some titles coming up to stress out newer hardware... hopefully since it is allegedly PC exlusive that means it is not some CPU-bound shitty port which barely loads up a modern video card *cough* bad company 2 *cough*.

    Perhaps it will be a competitor to the new Deus Ex game coming...

    Doesn't load up a modern video card yet looks pretty damn sweet? Maybe it's good coding? Any comment about "modern graphics hardware" not being utilised to deride a game is pointless anyhow...

    no console game will ever look as good as a pc game. just compare the old crysis 1 with the sequel, even with the dx11 patch it still looks like a turd.

    this game looks like a winner. that trailer had a lot of effort put in it. and recently nothing from eastern europe has been a fail.

    Because gameplay, story and immersion is what counts. Made to suit console/pc? I don't give a damn. Give me a good game (RE: Not a grahpics demo ) and i'm yours.

    On gameplay and immersion. A good game will have good controls for consoles and even better ones for PC. Default ones, strictly speaking. Lean, prone, field of view fall under this as well as immersion. Graphics are good as well, how can you enjoy a game if it has low res models, low res textures, pre-rendered cutscenes and a 2d skybox with crappy low res jpg images...

    Looks interesting, but will need to see more to make a judgement.

    Simple controls (too many ruin a game), reasonable system requirements and a well optimised engine I feel are keys to a good game.

    If there is no multiplayer it means they are going to have to nail single player.

    Hopefully it's an XP game too, I'm really trying to fight off a Windows 7 upgrade.

    This:

    is greater than this:

    Multiplayer games are a dollar a dozen. And, nine times out of ten, if a game has multi and single player parts, the developer's focus will be on the multi, not the single.

    Bolded: Of course

    B+Italics: What are you trying to say: that classic SNES games / 2d games / low res textures are, by default, bad games? I don't think you are but it sounds like that.

    Although; i am of the opinion contemporary Console influences are dumbing down the potential for good quality games due to design limitation (re:), flaw of having a large portion of it's target market 12 year olds, and putting revenue ahead of designing something worthwhile.

    It's not like that, those were and still are great games. But it's 2011. We have CPU's with 6 to 8 cores and possibly more in the future, we have graphics cards with 2/3GB of memory, 4-8GB is the standard amount of RAM, Solid State Drives are all the rage. Why do we still have crappy textures, bad models, and bad gameplay and immersion? We have all this technology available and people are making games for <2004 hardware...

    I think the point is that a game with solid underlying mechanics is always significantly more enjoyable when it looks, sounds and is generally presented well too. I don't think that you necessarily sacrifice one for the other. I think it's particularly applicable to shooters.

    There are a fair few older games that I often think would be even more amazing games if they looked and played more like modern games but retained the storylines and game mechanics that made them great. Given the state of modern gaming and the average hardware level these days there should definitely be a minimum expectation for things like that in this genre.

    Also, I know I'm not the only one that feels attention to detail in the form of things like menus, inventory systems and art, loading screens etc (which are usually different in console and PC games) also fall under the whole 'graphics' debate.
