How long before we see this in all games?

The front quarter panels sure do come off easy on that truck.

Glad they commented on the collision issues, the system is excellent and if they can sort those it will be near perfect. Hope they open it up / licence it out for others to use.

If I could have one wish it would be to have this in GTA5.
Or to be Gordon Ramsey

"The Future of the GTA franchise" -- More likely the FarCry series.

Looks pretty good, but I hope they figure out a way to stop the quarter panels flying off from a love tap.

I just wish they would fix clipping, something we have had to deal with for YEARS instead of living with it and moving on to things like this.

You can actually get it now. It`s not that advanced, but still the best damage system I`ve seen.
It`s called rigs of rods and it`s in beta stage.

It was like watching the best crash test ever.

The next generation is looking pretty good right about now.

I don`t even need a game - that sandbox mode would be more than enough!

To those whom missed the point:
Do not focus on the graphics, that is not the point. Like the caption suggests, it`s about the physics...how the vehicle moves and reacts.

Something MacGuffin isn`t an expert on!

But in all seriousness, even GTA:4 was an improvement since GTA:3. And real-time deformation like this is pretty good. Though I don`t think they have the vehicle weight proportioned correctly. No way a pick-up truck can take a jump and not land on it`s nose with an empty bed.

@ TheLebowski
Missed the point of the video. Also, don`t bitch about shooter games when this about a bloody car. It`s not talking about Crysis here.

@nayrbarr
But that doesn`t stop the game being good. The graphics are dated but not awful. Same can eb said for the SNES era.

Let`s hope it`s not too intensive to run, eh?

Whats the point of having uber graphics, if it still plays like any other generic shooter.

Guess thats just normal in todays gaming industry.. Why risk money on something completely new (franchise, game-engine), if you can make easy money by releasing the same old crap with "enhanced graphics"?

@MacGuffin I pity you not being able to appreciated what an achievement this is. This isn`t about the graphics, it`s about the real-time deformation in an existing game engine. Also, I recommend you take a look back at GTA3, it`s graphics are awful compared to this demo.

Admittedly, I don`t play many computer games (I think the last time I touched a games console was GTA: Vice City, back in 2004-ish), but this doesn`t look to be that much of a graphical improvement over what I saw then, tbh. O_o
