Take your own advice. Games are already incredibly expensive to produce and the market can't really bear an increase in that regard. I'm all for visual frills, just not when they come at the expense of other parts of the game. The industry needs a settling period for developers to get used to the newer tools and for development costs to come down. If they can eke out some visual frills without upping the costs too much then great but otherwise the market will literally not bear more expensive costs for a AAA game.
