Games not reaching 1080p is a topic that has been on the top of the gaming world lately, with several players showing their dissatisfaction toward some game developers due to this. Although players consider 1080p to be really important, Far Cry 4 creative director Alex Hutchinson thinks that the experience itself is far more important than resolution.

"It's certainly not something I care about in a game," said Hutchinson after confirming that the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Far Cry 4 will run at 1080p and 30fps. "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?

"With the 4K TVs and things - somebody was telling me that with a 4K TV, to even see it, your living room has to be big enough to sit like 12 feet from the screen. I don't know the exact numbers, but it starts to get a little crazy. I'm just in it for the experience, I'll play a SNES game if it's cool.

"I think experiences have been selling them(consoles), and that's your challenge, if you don't have a new cool experience, or a social experience - like Call of Duty sells consoles, even though art-wise, it's not exactly... like Call of Duty to Crytek's games, one sells a metric s**t-ton and the other doesn't."
