Reviews have to mention all those technical details? Because gamers must know about SSAO, HDAO, FXAA, phong lighting model, etc.

Many of us gamers understand gaming far beyond that, because ignorance is not bliss.

For years I have been amazed how much dumber the avg. gamer are getting on how games work, especially the console crowd. It's what the publishers and developers want because the ignorant are easy to manipulate with art tricks rather than real technical know how and skill.
They deserve it if they enjoy staying in ignorance.

Back when this site was born, we were all very interested to learn how 3D/games worked, and many dug in.

Props to Rockstar for not just being greedy and throwing the port together, which ignorant gamers, who know little of game development, accept too willingly these days.
