But I wont bother any longer because to many fanboys are in AVS and I thought that was reserved for teenagers
Well you never listed BF4, and BF4 is rendering 40% more screen space which is a large difference in power and resolution (your perception
To be super critical:
NBA2K14 is both 1080P60, but the XB1 version is missing AA and some other minor graphical features (think a step down extra in the settings on PC). It's also a very closed/controlled game design )arena, crowd, players and court). Forza 5 went through it own last min downgrade in track assets and lighting to hit 1080P60 (vs the E3 and later showings). That important since 60FPS is pretty much not negotiable in a racer, but it is what it is. NBA Live 14/Madden 25 shouldn't even be mentioned as next gen games, they're cross generational games and have more in common with their last gen counterparts. They didn't even go through the sprinkling in of next gen features that other publisher cross gen games at least made the attempt to do. They've been getting panned from a technical perspective, and are not reference material. It's EA after all.
I don't have Fifa, so you might have something there.
As for the insult to fellow AVS'ers, many here are into tech, specs, and have keen eyes for visual fidelity. You're going to find criticism align along those lines, and there's nothing childish about it at a site that prides itself on knowing input lag, response times, and minute differences in contrast and black levels. There's already a lot of criticism here that the XB1 and PS3 are media feature poor vs what we got last gen.ended with last gen.
anyways, Merry Christmas all! Hope Santa was good to the families and you all have some new toys to play with!
