Re: Favorate PC Game of 2004
Well instead of making one gordon freeman they would have to make a low res and a high res model. The low res would be around 6000-1200 and the high res in the millions.
Then Unreal Engine 3 uses complex calculations to take the two models and make a normal map so the lower rex model looks like it has a ton more polygons. Thus the game looks absolutely incredible.
And since this technology is far superior than that which exist today, serious studios will use such things or simular and cost and time will go up in the production of the game.
These expensive will unfortunately be passed onto the consumer.
