I said I liked Cossacks' graphics better than Age of Empires 2, and that Age of Empires 2 > Warlords Battlecry 3.

My friend said I was dumb because Cossacks (2001) was older than Warlords (2004), and older games always have worse graphics than newer ones.


Pls tell me some older games with better graphics than newer ones.

Games that try to look photo-realistic will inevitably look dated as technology improves. Games that go for a stylized aesthetic within the limitations of the hardware tend to age better. That's why Wind Waker still looks presentable today.

Well let's not get on the "gameplay > graphics" thing, I need to win this argument.

well its true. the graphics are meaningless in a respectable rts game

edit: for example if you are playing aoc as it is meant to be played you are moving around too fast and focused on too many things to give a shit about how good or bad the graphics are

Crysis has better graphics than a lot of post-Crysis games...

Edit: Morrowind was released in 2002, I'm sure you can find an older, worse looking game.

@Thrash Yeah but the dude is being really salty about it, I need to show him an older game with better graphics to make him even more salty.

objectively the graphics arent very good though. they had a good cohesive art design and did a good job making the most out of what they had...but by todays standards they didnt have very much. the graphics are shit. but it doesn't matter.

and that's the important thing to take away from this conversation. you and your friend are both wrong for thinking that the graphics matter in a rts game and need to get good.

The Longest Journey is from 1999 and has some pretty impressive graphics

age of empires 2 is actually a really good looking game that still looks good today though. 2D games tend to age much better than 3D ones.

a fair comparison IE not throwing out completely different genres and developers and styles

FF13 looks leagues better than 13-2 or LR

It's not perfect, and there is definitely room for some improvement, but it's a damn good game regardless.

OMG E.W. COSSACKS

That was my favorite PC game as a kid. I did not even have the full version, but I spent so many hours playing that demo. I don't even remember how I got the demo.

You'll never win the argument because your friend will disagree with you just for the sake of winning the argument.

You ****ing hit the nail in the head.

Now he's calling me dumb.

He's so salty though, it's amazing

I also posted this throughout the conversation:

No otherwise loads of classic games do not have graphics ie,.



#36
yeah but those games have bad graphics thats what im saying

the "good" you're seeing is a pre-rendered image the only actual graphics are the character models

the games look great yeah but not graphically impressive
