But if you ever exported a 3d model from z-brush you know why you do want to do LOD's anyway.... hint: Filesize

Yes file size is bound to stop developers at some point, unless like in the demo they are re-using the same asset over and over.
Virtual geometry is the logical child of virtual texturing. Actually virtual texturing is what Id software based their notorious megatexture technology upon. And by the way virtual geometry is what John Carmack was contemplating ten years ago when still working at Id software.
Well they used that to put different textures all over the place at the cost of eating up disk space and that didn't work too well for them.. Guy just stopped doing 3d engines and it's good to see today what virtual geometry is looking like..
Anyway; I guess we should expect to see a boost in disk space requirement with the next generation of games. But I guess this is where the comparison stop. I don't know how it will work out but with this level of detail we could imagine a new paradigm. Like for instance detailed brick models on top of each other instead of a full wall model.
I think it will also revolutionize the way we look at Lods. No more lods to make but also way more than three levels of details And we are not even touching what could be done with a voxel system. Instead of removing blocks it's possible to destroy them bits by bits.

It seems the world of fantasy RPG gaming is getting overrun by slavic folklore!
Probably because Eastern European studios have been able to achieve a level of quality and depth while Western European and American studios, Larian excepted, have been struggling to come up with something as palatable as the Witcher3 and Kingdom Come. Looking at Bethesda and Bioware's general direction, but also at that the "big" studios...

Might also become true with non fantasy.. I have very high expectations from Cyberpunk :p

This kind of studio typically works on several projects at once. A part of the team focuses on core components, like 3d engine, networking etc. while the designers, content makers, and gameplay programmers finish up the previous project. Fallout 76 is basically Fallout 4 with multiplayer and a couple of enhancements taken from the next engine. So basically the core components for the next game are done while Fallout 76 is being improved. And since there werent that much content or NPCs, tI would guess they had people working on content for Starfield at the same time. They probably underestimated the amount of content and work they needed for Fallout 76 and one could imagine the other projects got delayed...

Whatever we call people who would enter a hospital with a loaded gun and threatening patients while demanding an amount of money, what the ransomware makers is just about the same. It should legally be just as a serious offence to send ransomwares to hospital. There are lines that should not be crossed and threatening a hospital is such a line. Those guys should be tracked down wherever they are and treated with extreme severity. We are far from the smart dude who hacks the pentagon and get hired by the FBI as a consultant. As far as I am concerned it's a form of terrorism.

Redoing games seems to be a big thing nowadays..
And after all why not? Look at the latest Doom games they are after all remakes of the original Doom games Doom and Doom2. On the other hand you have higher res versions of old games. Freshening them gaphically without changing gameplay. I guess Crysis games will me more like that as the name remaster would imply. Pity because Tim WIllits is more a gameplay guy than a Graphics dude, so not sure what his part he will play in that.
Also wondering if Redfall will be a Daggerfall remake on the Elder Scrolls front...

Totally. well apparently we know where that paper is coming from if the author thinks the most worrying thing is corporation being mocked, we can tell what interests he is representing and it's not gamers.

It's official, Activision joined the Bethesda school of Business school.
Today's lesson will be, how to bring cool and sexy back to video games when youngsters perceive you as a stingy bunch of outdated corporate jerks with suits and a lawyer.

Who would even bother with this service with games that vanish at a moments notice.

They don't vanish, the service only uses games you already own.
Might suck being denied from using your game.

Activision and Bethesda are probably lined up for a new competing project of cloud gaming. They probably have eyes on the bucks they could make.
Once again I wonder what happened to the PR person at those companies? Did they get tied to a tree for a pagan sacrifice at some point?
Because those dudes reputation are at an all time low and some folks there are dedicated hard to make sure they keep shooting arrows in their last remaining knee.

I tried Gothic 3 but I could not keep me interested. The graphics were awful but I was not amazed by gameplay either.
The bar has been raised for European RPGs with the Witcher and Kingdom Come,
Not sure those few seconds of gameplay are enough to make it interesting enough to me...

I enjoyed the Witcher series though it was a bit too short but I had some issue with the directing in a few episode where the quality was sub par, for instance the dragon hunt. The dragon's voice was really laughable, with his English accent and stuff. I understand they had to make sure people would get what was going on but after seeing Game of Thrones or the Hobbit that really felt cheap. The mountain climb and the scenery really looked bland.. Apart from that, most scenes like the forest scenes and the village scenes were fine. I get it that spending money on big battles and cgi effects on the first season may have been more complicated. (All the battle scenes were avoided in the first season of Game of Thrones)

To me Portal 2 is the best game on that list. GTA V was kind of fun. The story was pretty cliche and predictable. Skyrim was okayish. Everything else on that list is crap.

And you can't see why Minecraft is on that list? Any other game on that list spawned a new genre?

Granted, Witcher 3 or Kingdom Come should be on that list and not Skyrim.
