Cliff Bleszinski, Gears of War creator and lover of blue aliens, isn't fully satisfied with game graphics today. They're good, but they're not Avatar good, right?
"I'm sorry, do you think graphics are good enough?" Bleszinski asked OXM in an interview. "No they're not! The Xbox 360 is great, we've pushed it further than we ever have with Gears of War 3, but I want 'Avatar' in real-time and beyond."
Woah. It sounds like Cliffy B has his Na'vi plugs in a tangle. But I get it. He wants our jaws to drop with games, much like they did when we first saw Avatar.
"Do graphics make gameplay? No. But when I fire up my projector back at my house, put Avatar on - it still makes your jaw drop, it's like a giant portal to another planet. I think we still have a long way to go before we get there, and I want us to get there."
Cliff wants fully realistic CG for games. Do you want that in your games, though? Do you want perfect realism? Are you banking on a Na'vi plug interface for the Xbox 720?
