Of course not but Skyrim had great graphics for an open world, as did Far Cry 2 - both performed excellently on PC and offered substantially better graphics. I know they're very different art-styles but I'm talking about the technical level. GTAIV looked terrible and suffered framerate drops on consoles, despite rendering at 630p on PS3.
I know that graphics aren't the be-all-and-end-all of gaming but I haven't seen anything to inspire confidence with regards to gameplay and Max Payne 3 has me worried about this. The lack of a PC version isn't forgiveable, especially after GTAIV. And as I've pointed out before, Watchdogs looks much better and they developers are treating the PC with respect rather than contempt.
