It's one of the hottest topics of 2014: High-definition resolution in video games.

Some say it's critical; others say it's borderline meaningless. Far Cry 4 creative director Alex Hutchinson falls into the latter category, it seems.

During a recent Total Xbox interview , Hutchinson said the resolution just isn't "something I care about in a game." He added:

"It feels weird to me that people are cool about playing a sort of retro pixel game, and yet the resolution somehow matters. It's like: is it fun, is it interesting, is it new, is it fresh, are there interesting questions?"

He also said some people might not be able to tell the difference between 1080p and 900p, depending on the situation. He followed this up by saying he'd "play a SNES game if it's cool." Well, of course, who wouldn't? This is an interactive entertainment medium, is it not? Hutchinson is more interested in creating fresh gameplay experiences, as opposed to the same ol' same ol' with a glossier coat of paint.

For the record, the upcoming Far Cry 4 is supposed to hit 1080p on both PS4 and Xbox One, although there might be very minor differences.

Why not both? Beautiful and fun. It's starting to sound like excuses. If you can't hit 1080p 60fps then so be it, but don't say it like resolution isn't important at all.

What is not important to you, may be important to someone else.

I know comments are informal for the most part, but I think it's best not to write the same way that you speak. Don't feel embarassed in any way. Learning is a beautiful thing. Please read this article when you have the opportunity.
