There are many features present in some games that improve your video gaming experience that may sometimes not be present in many upcoming games. Sometimes, this leaves you wondering if game developers ever learn from previous game releases. Here are some of the few features we hope make it into every PC game from now on.
5. Description of the graphical options
The meaning of some options, such as texture and shadow quality, is rather obvious, but the meanings of many others, such as Post Processing and Anisotropic Filtering, may not be familiar with many gamers. In fact, some graphical options are so obscure that many gaming enthusiasts do not even know what they do. Of course, you can always just Google those phrases, and you’ll get a rough idea of what they mean, but we just hope developers put a little more effort and explain these terms when you hover over them, and give a rough idea of the visual and performance gain or loss. This will, in turn, help players make the “best” choice when selecting their graphical settings.
4. Anisotropic Filtering Option
Although many games do have this option in the settings, some do not. This occurs for many reasons. Maybe there are no real visual gain with AF in some games, or maybe because developers are too lazy to even bother putting this option anyway. To fix this, many gamers force AF in their graphic card control panel, but isn’t that taking it a little too far? All PC games must have this option!
3. Lean Feature
Okay, many of you may not appreciate leaning in first person shooter games because you never used this feature any way. Still, many do use it when available and take it to their advantage. The fact that leaning does, somewhat, add a whole dimension to the battlefield, we are surprised that many recent games don’t even support it, even though it is not really that hard to implement.
2. Real Gamepad Support
Nothing is worse than buying a peripheral in hopes you’d be able to play your games better now, and then realize that the games you’d want to play with the peripheral have limited or no support for said peripheral in the first place!
1. Benchmarking Tool
Well, a benchmarking tool isn’t really necessary. It’s just that an accurate benchmarking tool is really beneficial when you first load up a game. Instead of wasting valuable game-time finishing quests with an unstable frame rate that may spoil the game for you, you would just run the benchmarking tool then apply whatever settings that will give you the right performance.
