No 3D game ever made me go "Wow".

I thought that Doom 3 would have given me a stiffy based on the screenshots that were released but when the game arrived on my desktop. Even running at 75 FPS on my gfx card at native panel resolution with max detail and 8x antialiasing. But it just didn't look as good as the stills.

I thought that Oblivion would have at least made my nipples tingle from the screenshots, especially the ruined church with bump maps and moving grass. But again it failed to deliver even with full detail everything and HDR when in motion it just didn't feel fluid enough, the bump maps, LOD and depth queuing just wasn't realistic enough. I felt cheated the first time I played this game.

I thought that Crysis was finally going to be the 3D game to make me cum in my pants. The stills looked amazing, the movies looked great too. But when it arrived on my desktop, even with my work computer (Quad Xeon E5430 with 16Gig of RAM and a Radeon 4870x2) it just wasn't as pants wetting as I had hoped.

Perhaps each time my aspirations are too high.

[rant]

If only the 3D modellers would learn how to do hands! FFS it's not rocket science.

1) Not all hand gestures are physically possible. Use constraints which model the limitations of the bones and tendons of the hand so that you do not do unnatural poses!! If you dont understand what I mean, try to bend your little finger in to the palm of your hand without bending your others!!

2) Gravity plays a big part in the positions of a persons hands. If you do not model (or at least fake) how gravity affects wrist orientation and finger position then hand movements look like those of Thunderbirds puppets!! If you do not understand what I mean just lay your arm and hand flat on the desk and then raise it naturally. You'll see that your hand, wrist, fingers all naturally droop in response to gravity. No-one holds their muscles totally taught to maintain constant angles in every day movement.

3) Constant minor pseudorandom adjustment. Humans constantly adjust the angle of their wrists and positions of their fingers (within the limits imposed by their bones and tendons). If you keep the angle constant and do not move the fingers at all then wave a persons arms around you again get a Thunderbirds marionette puppet look.

These are BASIC principles that any decent 3D programmer/modeller could overcome in 2-3 days of programming.... do any of them do it?

No!

So why TF not?

reading my posts after a couple of years makes me always realize that i love myself
that's ok, because pretty much nobody else in the world loves me. actually, at the last count, the word was more about "hate and loath" but no matter, because i love myself and i would gladly burn you all. uhm. what was i saying? oh yes, taliking about the "wooow" games... why would one do such verses in public is beyond me.
anyway, to that list, that is, my list, and therefore, inherently correct, i would like to add:

Amiga:

- Xenon II
- Lotus 2 (not that i liked it better than the 1, but it amazed me how much bigger and colourful were the screen)

PC.

- Tomb Raider I (it was amazing the lot of things a female character in a game could do. no wait. i meant the jumps and interaction with scenery).

and so here we are, at the end of yet another post. i ate too hastily my dinner. oh well... the previous 2 phrases were provided to you courtesy of that curious rigmaroling or chanting inflexion some english speaking woman i knew used to use. it was cute. and also unnerving.

Yesterday I finished Legendary on PC. I was impressed. With a good VGA (I have a GTX260) it is amazing.
I was in some tunnels with rock walls under some cathedral, and I watched for 2-3 mins the water that was running on them. Very realistic!

I said WOW! with Death Mask (I never saw an FPS before), Doom on PC (), Pool of Radiance, Super Robot Wars IV (I saw it at first time on PsOne), and many others (God of War, Gothic).

... until you realize the game doesn't make sense because there is no ending, there's always something better to gather and monsters to kill and the gameplay is based on time consumption... been there, done that, no thanks

---=== EDITED ===---
This is what literally made me go WOW --- The Official Vista Song!

I was like: "WOW such a cool song for such a crappy OS... you don't hear that every day"

Guess I had the same feeling that alexh had with Crysis with Vista Honestly it never made me go 'Wow' and I guess that's the reason why most people aren't so excited with it, because it was overhyped
