Quite frankly we have enough power these days that developers can pull off pretty much anything they want in terms of game design. Oh sure VISUALS can always be improved, but in terms of scale I can't see much more being made possible without going into absurd levels of detail.

Meh. I can see them making larger maps that take advantage of caching to RAM or whatever better. Even if "better" == more RAM to play with.

People complain a fair amount about either "rail" maps or "too long a load time" Advanced enough rigs would move alone the curve nicer.

But really, beyond visuals + maps + load time I can't see game design improving that much with new hardware. Unless better game-AI is only really suffering because we haven't hit enough CPU speed (but I doubt that). Or something really insane comes along like Kinect+VR
