    gameplay fidelity is the most important fidelity. It comes before framerate, it is far more important.

    How can you enjoy gameplay when frames are dropping to 15fps and you are totally removed from the immersion? Gameplay in older games came from the rock solid loop of user input > visual feedback > action that ran so slick that all you knew was your mind and the game.

    We COULD have had that in GTA if only they'd scaled some of it back and delivered less detail. Sure i'd probably be underwhelmed by it then as I'm a sucker for that big city detail as most are but simply the technology just isnt there yet.

    anyway, i'm out. Enjoy the game.
