We Don't Need New Consoles Reason #1,000,574

Is there really a need to release new game consoles when a majority of game developers will continue to place their toilet seats on top of our faces while we are sleeping quietly in the dead of night? By now, we all know that 99.9% of all games produced did not take full advantage of whatever platforms that they were released for. Today's example is Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 for the PlayStation 3. As fun and dirty as this game may be, the graphics is beyond horrendous... The cut scenes are wishy-washy where sometimes you are given flat 2D artwork of the characters but then sometimes they used the 3D models of the characters. The details in the texture works are nearly non-existent and even if they were trying to strive for that anime look, they have failed miserably because of the poor character animations. The most inexcusable thing in regards to the game presentation however is that even though this game is so ugly to look at, it cannot even run at 60 frames per second. I think it even runs at below 30 fps constantly. With the pathetic amount of polygons being utilized in the game at any moment of gameplay, there is absolutely no reason why this game cannot run with perfect frame rates. This is one of the many reasons why console makers should stop creating new ones until all developers start to take things more seriously. Remember folks: we don't need new game consoles nor bigger and better graphics card. We need COMPETENT developers.

When this becomes the only thing that this game cares about, you know that we're in trouble.

How could they get away with producing something with such a horrible graphics engine?
